It is a really nice area but the nickname makes me giggle.

Nickname aside....it does have some outstanding schools.

Not that it's the only area that has great schools, but school districts can vary so much around here, it's something to watch out for.

Im super close to Doraville and it really depends on where you are. Some sections are nicer than others. And even Chamblee has some gentrification.

don't mind gentrification. Lived in Chicago for years & experienced the early stages of it. Diversity isn't a problem...kids are taught that everyone is equal and understand that DH & I won't accept anything less.

We're looking for good schools, decent house that doesn't require a lot of work as soon as we move in and at least 1/2acre lot.

I have a realtor contacted and am working through her site to find homes. Found many in Marietta, some in Kennesaw/Alparetta/Smyrna/Woodstock. Commute isn't an issue as DH will be either on the road or telecommuting. Our goal is for him not to work to pay the bills only but to come home and know that we can afford to go out to play too. It's pricey here and our property taxes ($8k) are killing us!!!

I can't wait until we're down there physically looking at homes and choosing the best for our family. So excited! And I'm thrilled that you ladies can give feedback too! So appreciate that!!!!

There is great diversity in all areas here Kristine! its something I love. Not only is there a decent sized black & Mexican community, but there are a good bit of various Asian populations and plenty of people from Europe and other places in the US as transplants. I love all the different kinds of foods you can find here.
