Why Charlotte

Charlotte beautifully balances an energetic metropolitan lifestyle with traditional Southern charm. It offers the amenities of a major city - urban neighborhoods, active nightlife, cultural centers, and an eclectic restaurant scene - all with the convenience and warmth of a small town.

The Queen City, nicknamed in honor of British Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, is growing at an astounding rate, quickly closing in on a population of over one million. More young professionals are moving to Charlotte than almost anywhere in the country, and business is booming. The cost of living is attractive (46% lower than NYC), the weather is great, and the mountains and beach are just a short drive away. We’re happy to call Charlotte home, and we think you will be, too.
