Another Award For Raleigh North Carolina? My Trophy Case Is Getting Full!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition

Once again, Forbes Magazine has chosen Raleigh, North Carolina #1!!!

Raleigh, North Carolina

This time Raleigh was named the #1 city in the nation where Americans are relocating to. With our wonderful schools, top notch medical facilities, excellent universities and over 170 technology and research companies, not to mention the great weather we have here, it's no wonder people are coming this way.

Recently Raleigh, North Carolina's capitol city, was named #6 in the country's Healthiest Housing Markets for 2009.

It's yet another in a long line of awards that the Raleigh, Cary and Apex areas have won in the past few years.

Raleigh, along with neighboring Cary and Apex have been recognized by CNN, Money Magazine and Forbes on their annual lists of Best Places to Live. Click the links to see the awards!

Raleigh, the city of oaks

ESPN the Magazine has also recognized Raleigh! Raleigh and the Triangle area were voted #1 as The Best Place for a Sports Road Trip!

"North Carolina's famed Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) is the epicenter of the of the affordable sports universe. In one 15 day span last October, you could have seen six top-flight events for $133."

We're proud to be the home of the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes, a mecca for top ranked ACC College Basketball teams, the home city for the USA Baseball team, and just a short drive to NASCAR and NBA facilities.

Craig, I've had more then a few clients finally leave Long Island with Raleigh being one of their considerations.  I haven't been there YET but hear it's beautiful (and MUCH less expensive!).

Hey, we're #3 Craig!  Ain't NC GRANDE!  Reading Carole's comment reminds me that we have an area of Charlotte that we call 'Little Long Island' because everyone that moves from LI seems drawn to this one particular area of Charlotte!  I know alot move to Raleigh too--obviously!

Kudos to Raleigh!  ;-)

Carole - When I made the move to the Raleigh area from Long Island a bunch of years ago, I immediately gave myself a $10,000 raise just by changing zip codes! Gas, housing, taxes and car insurance are all considerably less expensive here. Come on down! We've got an open door policy here!

Debe - To quote you Debe, "Ain't NC Grande!" We're fortunate to live in a place where we have all the amenities of a bigger city while still maintaining that small town charm. We have a town here called Cary which has been given the acronym "City of Affluent Retired Yankees" and the "Contained Area of Retired Yankees". That's not a bad thing. It's just all the people from the North who came here, as did I, for a less expensive, better way of life......and found it!
