Charlotte Area Real Estate

Whether you are new to Charlotte (as most Charlotteans are at some point in time) or a lifelong resident, there’s always a different neighborhood or town to visit — or move to — to shake up your scenery.

As a Waxhaw resident working out of a Ballantyne real estate office, my primary areas of focus for work are south Charlotte, Union County, and Indian Land & Fort Mill, South Carolina.

However, I love to get out and explore and can tell you at least a little bit about most of Charlotte’s local communities.

Here’s a non-exhaustive list and very brief description of several Charlotte area towns and neighborhoods.

For real estate information specific to a particular area, just ask!
