I think Greer is a wonderful community. Ever since we have moved here, it has only become better. The town is experiencing substantial growth both in population and economy. The people here are just one of the friendliest ever. Anyone you meet in Greer will be glad to lend a helping hand. Greer is also in a very convenient location, sitting midway between the city of Greenville and the city of Spartanburg. I would not want to be anywhere else!

As a current Greer resident, there is not a lot to complain about my area! Greer, SC has great schools and lots of job opportunities with an enthralling community of diverse families. As an up and coming area, Greer's real estate market is doing well and the overall safety of the area cannot be matched!
I love the city of Greer! I've been here my whole life and it always felt like home. The state fairs and going downtown are my favorite parts about Greer. Especially going to the fairs with family and friends makes it an even better time. Greer even has good food. Some of the best restaurants in Greer are Eggs Up Grill, Cooper River, Hibachi and my favorite Mutts BBQ. We have amazing things going on in Greer and it's a great place to live!
