ATLANTA OVERVIEW

Atlanta is my home. It’s the birthplace of my 30 year career, my children and grandchildren, and my dreams for a happy, meaningful life. This city has something for everyone: the Sophisticate, the Nature-lover, the Entrepreneur, the Intellectual, the Gourmand, and the Average Joe. It’s a city with 5.3M people, 150K businesses, 32 colleges and universities, 4 enjoyable seasons, restaurants that number to infinity and a cost of living index below the national average. Atlanta’s neighborhoods are rich with personality that can only be explained by caring and engaged residents who foster community spirit, whether on a single street or in an entire neighborhood.
