Collier Heights is located in 30318. Collier Heights is the foremost mid-20th-century African-American suburb in Atlanta and the premier example of a mid-century suburb created for and by African Americans in the country. Its preeminence derives from its unique combination of sheer size, the number and range of its single­ family houses, the quality of its planning, design, construction, and landscaping, its association with an emerging middle and upper-middle class of African-American homebuyers for whom it was built, and the prominent role played by African Americans in all aspects of its development during a time of strict housing segregation in the South and nationally. ... more

Hi Spencer,

Congratulations on your decision to buy your first home together!

Atlanta traffic is becoming a serious issue for homebuyers. As an Atlanta native I can attest to the hair-pulling frustration of spending an hour in the car for a 7 mile commute.

There are areas around Vinings where you can find a home for around $250k, but they go quickly in this seller's market. Have you considered a condo? There are more condos than single family homes for sale at that price point.

If you are first time home buyers, there are several mortgage options to help you with this purchase.

If you are not currently working with an agent I would be glad to assist you with your search.

Best of luck to you both!

Kathy Malloy

Pine Lake is one of the most eclectic cities in the state, including among its residents a number of locally, regionally and nationally known artists in the fields of music (Rick Price of the Georgia Satellites, Elise Witt), fine art (Richard Cecil), sculpture, poetry (Alice Teeter) and prose and other disciplines. The city has been described as one of the most neighborly of cities—new residents are often told that when someone says, "Let me know what I can do to help," in Pine Lake, that's not an empty statement (Atlanta Magazine; Creative Loafing).[full citation needed] The city was reported in Atlanta Magazine's (April 2003) "Best Places to Call Home." ... more

Hello Sreeks,

Thank you for your good question. You'll very likely need to either buy near a good private school in or near the Atlanta City Limits or consider a longer commute. There is some highly desirable real estate in your price range within the City of Atlanta and some good schools associated with Atlanta Public Schools (APS), but many relocating professionals with similar preferences consider properties served by either the City Schools of Decatur, the Cobb County School District, the Dekalb County School District, the Fulton County School System, or Gwinnett County Public Schools and use the local rapid transit options to get into work. There's also Clayton and Douglas County Schools.

The AJC produces several education reports based on reports by the Georgia Dept of Education.


I am based in Gwinnett County, home to the top performing school in the state and 6th or 7th in the nation, The Gwinnett School of Science, Technology and Mathematics (Berkmar High School Cluster). You can search by Gwinnett County High School at or search by high school city wide at the link below. Then plan your commute at

Its a lot of info, but I hope it was helpful. Please call me if I can answer any questions.

Atlanta and traffic are synonymous. But don’t let that scare you. As a KSU alumna, I can say that you will love the university. Additionally you will love the surrounding areas. Which campus will you be located? I would suggest looking in Kennesaw and surrounding areas such as Marietta, Acworth, and Woodstock. Dallas and Powder Springs are also great areas. Your commute from these areas will be very tolerable.

Look for local NAR awards, local brokers, and check Trulia for high listing agents. These should be top producers.
