Capital of the New South, Hotlanta, the City Too Busy to Hate – whatever you call it, Atlanta is one happening place. Among its offerings: a rich heritage, a booming business climate, the Braves, vibrant nightlife, top restaurants, a leading technology university, the busiest airport in the world, and of course, all things Peachtree. All the activity of city life is perfectly complemented by wide, leafy streets, ample expanses of green space, and residents who take the time to greet each other – just one of the ways traditional Southern charm is still alive in this bustling metropolis.
At Keller Williams, we’re proud to call Atlanta home. We have a finger on the pulse of what’s happening in real estate throughout the city’s top neighborhoods, from Buckhead to the Highlands, Ansley Park to Edgewood, so wherever you end up, you’re sure to stick around for a while, just like we have.
