Are you planning to relocate to the Triangle area of North Carolina?
You will absolutely love it here. The Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area offers so much. We are an easy drive to the mountains, the ocean, approximately 5 -6 hours to Charleston, Savannah and Washington DC. This area includes an International airport with several non stop direct flights to the West Coast and overseas.
This area is broken up into small towns, (pull up a map to follow along) starting with the ‘anchor’ Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, Willow Springs, Pittsboro, then north to Chapel Hill, Hillsboro, Carrboro, Knightdale, Garner, Clayton, Wake Forest, Durham. If you drive from Wake Forest to Chapel Hill, then south along Jordan Lake back to Cary, you can literally go over 150 miles! How do I know, I once spent a day showing clients who were relocating their business ( a chain of pizza restaurants in Colorado) and themselves to this area. We put 177 miles on that day.
What to do in the area? Take a look at this!
Food, you will learn to love sweet tea, barbeque (two types of sauce/barbeque in the Carolinas, Lexington style and Eastern)
Moving can be challenging, however in some ways, I think its fun. This coming from the person who has moved from (ready?) Toronto to Los Angeles to San Francisco, back to Toronto, to Durham NC, then West Palm Beach and then back to North Carolina.
My tip, if you can afford to have ‘them’ pack for you…Do It!
When you are moving kids, plants, dogs and other things (that didn’t sell in your garage sale) ….have the movers pack. Its pricy, but depending on your time, SO worth it.
What to do here in this area. Well first, before making the move, my suggestion, visit and lets meet.
We can sit down and go over the map of the area to help you identify what areas will work for you (and your family) your commute and your lifestyle. Then I encourage you, even if you are not ready, to hop into my car and lets go do some exploring of the area, see a few homes and really get a better sense of what areas will work best for y’all (yes, once you move here, you have to start saying y’all) I am from Toronto, its better than saying ‘you guys’ lol.
Its all about doing your homework in advance.
Call me, when you are ready to start!
