Hi there,

This forum probably isn't the best place to ask employment related questions, but I think if you checked out the following websites they can help you out;,-GA-jobs.html

Good luck!

How safe is it?

How many trees are on the property, and are any about to fall on the house?

Based on that stretch of East Confederate, well since it is a 35 mph street and some playaz take it to the next level, a drunk driver could skid off the road and plow into the house at very high speed...maybe...

I don't know about lightning frequency around those parts, but the likelihood of Intown tornadoes on our megalopolitan, urban heat island is indeed increasing.

Coyotes are surfacing in packs all over Intown Atlanta and since East Confederate has plenty of creeks nearby, well certainly the area could be considered unsafe for bunny rabbits, cats and small children...

Oh, was your question about crime? Check the web reference - the Trulia crime heat map for Atlanta is a zip by zip super detailed data aggregator - check it's really cool graphically.

Bus transit is nearby because of the government employment on that street. MARTA trains are miles and miles away...

Hey Dawn. I specialize in Buckhead, Midtown, Sandy Springs, and Roswell. I'd be more than happy to assist you. I have a 6 year-old - so I know how important schools are. I can also tell you that the commute down 400 may or may not be worth it. We'll just have to evaluate your price range and your search criteria to see what we can get inside the Perimeter. Please visit my website so I can begin your search.

Talk to you soon.

Congratulations on your move to will love it here. If you will be working in Buckhead either Roswell or Marietta/East Cobb will be feasible for commuting. Ga400 does back up and once on it there are few choices to an alternative route. Marietta/East Cobb uses I-75 and again can back up however in my option you have more surface street choices. The time you will travel will help some.

Several comparison to consider....Roswell is in Fulton County, Marietta is in Cobb County. Cobb County real estate taxes are less and in most cases you will get more for your money. Both are wonderful areas to live in. Best of luck in your move!

Hi Pat,

My dad was a commercial airline pilot which required the family to do a fair amount of research before relocating to the area in the early 1970's. The family settled and lived on the South/Southeast side of town where most of my immediate family still lives today (I'm the black sheep of the bunch livng on the Northeast side of town).

A lot has changed since then but the primary things to consider still apply today. Do you presently live in Atlanta or are you moving into the area? Will you or a spouse be working at or near Hartsfield-Jackson International airport? What is the threshold of your maximum drive time or driving distance? Besides the airport, what other amenities, price range, schools/colleges, hobbies, interests, shopping, etc. will be important to you?

Answering these questions will help refine a search criteria that may be suitable to you. Keep in mind that flight patterns and operations change frequently, especially during different times of the year.
