Kerry what great information about the Atlanta neighborhoods. BTW is the Underground still around? I have not been in Atlanta for quite a few years.

Kerry, that's a great idea on how to present the information on all the areas that you are covering.  I'm bookmarking to do for all of our areas.  We were in Underground recently, and it seems to be safer now... which is good.

Posted by Charlie Harden almost 11 years ago

Endre -- Thanks so much for stopping by!  Yes, Undergound Atlanta is still alive and well -- they just built a new "World of Coke" and the Atlanta Aquarium nearby, so there are lots of visitors every year!  Next time you are in Atlanta let me know and I'll give you a list of other hot spots!

Hi Charlie! Thanks so much for your feedback.  I work with quite a few people relocating to Atlanta and many relocating to the Intown Atlanta area from the 'burbs and it is hard for them to understand the many differences -- and the qualities -- of each neighborhood.  Good luck with your neighborhood page!

Posted by Kerry Lucasse, Your Urban Nest Atlanta Real Estate Consultant (eXp Realty - Urban Nest Real Estate Group) almost 11 years ago

I'm considering moving back to Atlanta (after 15 years) and this Atlanta neighborhood information is very helpful and much appreciated.

Posted by Ben almost 11 years ago

Ben - thank you for stopping by!  I live and work almost exclusively in the Atlanta "intown" neighborhoods and would love to show you around... quite a bit has changed in 15 years!

Kind regards,

I've heard a lot of good things about the Vinings neighborhood -- do you have any information on that area?  Are you able to find a home under $200,000?

Posted by Kathy B almost 11 years ago

Great idea to get all of the information in one place!
