Neighborhood Expertise

While we can absolutely help you with your home buying or home selling needs across the greater Metro Atlanta area, we do find ourselves specializing in several neighborhoods both inside and outside the Perimeter.

According to Wikipedia.org:

The City of Atlanta is divided into 242 neighborhoods officially defined by the city. These “neighborhoods” are a mix of

  • traditional neighborhoods
  • subdivisions or groups of subdivisions
  • core areas such as Downtown and Midtown

Although all of Atlanta is officially divided into Neighborhood Planning Units, it is more common in the news media[2] to refer to the larger areas of the city in one of three ways:

  • Downtown, Midtown, and most of the central, east-central, west-central neighborhoods are referred to by their names, as these are well known throughout the Atlanta metro area, and most contain regional “destinations”, such as the Zoo in Grant Park, or the shops and restaurants in Virginia Highland (other examples include East Lake, East Atlanta, Ormewood, Bankhead, and Kirkwood, though they are not limited to these).
  • Buckhead neighborhoods are referred to collectively as Buckhead – this covers the entire northern fifth of the city (north of the I-75 / I-85 downtown connector)
  • Other areas are generally referred to as part of either “Northwest”, “Southwest”, or “Southeast Atlanta”. However, “East Atlanta” refers to a small neighborhood which is part of the ‘W’ group NPU and does not have the same connotation as the other directional descriptors.

The city of Atlanta lies in three counties in Georgia: primarily in Fulton, and partly in DeKalb to the east, and part Clayton south of the county.

Each neighborhood has its own personality and unique charm, as well as its own events and activities. Please click on the links below to learn more about what each of these fabulous neighborhoods has to offer:
