Information on Atlanta Neighborhoods


Booming Atlanta

We love Atlanta and all of the 242 Atlanta neighborhoods. These neighborhoods are then classified among five Atlanta areas and three Georgia Counties.  The style of housing, culture, household income and overall feel of each Atlanta neighborhood is quite a mix. Some areas have traditional neighborhoods while others have subdivisions or clusters of home. There are historical neighborhoods, areas with new developments and then there are townhomes and condos throughout the core of downtown. With so many options to choose from, you need an experienced real estate team to help you better understand the right area and home to fit your needs and personality.

Choosing the Right Atlanta Neighborhood

When deciding to live in Atlanta, it is important to choose the correct neighborhood based on your objectives.
