Congratulations on your move to Charlotte! I moved from Atlanta several years ago and love it! Both South Park and Highland Creek are great areas with a lot of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Both cover a large geographic area. Depending on where you are going to be working, you need to consider the amount of commute time that you would be willing to undertake. In addition to those two areas, Charlotte has a lot of other wonderful communities that may fit what you are looking for as well. I suggest you interview several different realtors and find the one that meets your needs and that you feel understands you the best. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions or would like some more detailed information.
