Instead of Charlotte, perhaps you should look at what Durham has to offer. Durham was just recently named #1 Best Place to Retire as well as #1 Most Likely to Appreciate. The Wall Street Journal has also named Durham tops for real estate investors. Charlotte was not on any of those lists. Durham has Duke University as well as NC Central, two major medical centers (Duke University Medical Center and the Veterans Administration Hospital) as well as all the corporate entities in Research Triangle Park. We have wonderful cultural activities and an absolutely beautiful new performing arts center, some of the best restaurants in the world (we even made the top 10 for Best Foodiest Cities!) and a terrific climate. I could go on for quite a while about how wonderful Durham and the Triangle area is and would welcome a one on one discussion with you. Please call me if you're interested in hearing more.
All the best,
