I like Birkdale because it is such a happening place. You have shopping, Lake Norman, Jetton Park, Blythe Landing, Latta Plantation. You are about 25 minutes from the airport. Finding roommates is pretty easy in that location. Many people in the airline industry live in this area because of the easy commute down I-77 and the lifestyle. Also, Huntersville taxes are less than South Charlotte.
My second favorite place for young women is the Stonecrest or Ballantyne area. Again the shopping and restaurants are great. You can expect a 15-20 minute commute depending on time of day. There are many houses, townhouses, condos to look at. Love to help you find your place.
