I loved this neighborhood growing up as a small child and I do love the differences it has now but, it seems all of my memories are gone. I love that it is much safer, I love the new demographic of family that is being shown but, I don't like that the realtors try to buy you out of the neighborhood instead of helping you think of ways you could stay in your neighborhood with an upgraded home that would sufficient until the time of sale. Absolutely love this neighborhood nonetheless!
Review Brookhaven
The city of Brookhaven has only been in operation for a short while but has
caught the nation's attention by surprise. It's resident's have proven that
they want a recognized city on the map. Small businesses, home owner's,
and local politician's have worked together to establish a city that is rich in
culture, cuisine, diversity, style, beauty, education, and safety of it's citizens.
I have enjoyed living in Brookhaven for the past 2.5 years as a full time student and worker. I always feel safe and am glad this is where I chose to live. The cost of living is quickly increasing as it's becoming a more desirable place to live. Easy access to the highways makes for easy and quick travel. I'm only 20 minutes away from most parts of Atlanta if there is low traffic. Brookhaven provides convenient shopping with small community like living, dining and shopping areas. I was very lucky to have chosen Brookhaven as a place to live.
