I replied to your wife's posting on Trulia earlier this evening.
I'd love to chat directly with you and your wife to more closely address your questions, concerns and interest in relocating to the Charleston area.
My contact information:
I'd love to share information with you specific to your career interests with the air freight industry and your wife's career in HR.
I relocated to the Charleston area from the Northeast - I took a leap of faith to move here with my daughters just shy of 3 years ago -- we are originally from the Boston MA area. We just love it here and they are flourishing as college students at the College of Charleston and the Art Insititute of Charleston.
My girls and I traveled to Charleston for a week in April of 2005 to check out colleges, real estate and the area - we instantly feel in love with the friendly people and the history/charm of Charleston. I put my home up for sale as soon as I got back -- and was in Charleston later in the year!!
We live in the Old Village - as unique area of Mt Pleasant -- it has a special charm that will remind you of the Northeast!! Check out information about the Old Village/Old Mount Pleasant on my website:
Also feel free to research homes for sale on my site.
If you are considering renting prior to purchasing a home, I can assist you with that as well!
Philadelphia has alot of characteristics of Boston - so I think I understand your interests well - and you will be pleasantly surprised that Charleston has jhistoric aspects that will remind you of home.
I would love to help you and your wife with both your career and home pursuits.
I look forward to hearing from you!
