The atmosphere of the area is great! The people are friendly once they warn up to you, and it is a quiet place to raise a family.
The employment for charlotte NC is not as good as one might think. The employment around this area is based around college education. because the cost of living is slightly higher than if you were to reside in another state it makes it hard for you to find a job that will help you to survive. The jobs around here that will help you to survive are all jobs that require some sort of college degree. Around charlotte you will find a lot of business men and women.
