From 2000 to 2010, some 400,000 people moved to Charlotte. That is a city about the size of Cincinnati!   I've explored a bit on "Why people move to Charlotte"  in a number of posts, and how about half come by choice , and half via corporate transfer.

The Fillmore @ the NC Music Factory

September 23rd, 2014 Comments Off on The Fillmore @ the NC Music Factory Listed Under: Arts & Culture, Featured Articles, Music, Things To Do Charlotte

The Fillmore, located inside the NC Music Factory near Uptown, is one of the best places in Charlotte to listen to live music. Since it's opening in June of 2009, The Fillmore has become one of the best music venues in Charlotte.  Unlike most other Charlotte music venues it's big enough for large, well-known acts but still small enough for an intimate show. I've been to over a dozen shows at The Fillmore and have consistantly been impressed with the quality of the bands/talent, the...Continue Reading!

Carolina Panthers

An ugly win, maybe, but a Win! The Panthers came out of their two game funk with just 2 minutes to the half when Cam led the offense to its first touchdown to bring the team to 21-14 (Bears) at the half. It was an impressive drive, he threw with pinpoint accuracy and moved the team downfield, almost effortlessly. The defense came alive and became what we expected going back to games 1 and 2. Next up, Cincinnati. Related Posts Charlotte 9th in US in...Continue Reading!

BIG Questions from Charlotte Home Buyers and Sellers Home Buyer and Sellers ask these questions often- big questions, and in the old days they would take a ton of research to answer with authority. Sometimes they still will, but I do have some cool new data tools. "Is "X" subdivision going to appreciate more than "Y" ?"  "Is it better to live closer to town or further out?" Sellers ask, "What is my home worth?" and then point to one sale in their neighborhood,...Continue Reading!

Panthers Celbrate

What did we learn about the Panthers strong showing in Tampa? The Carolina Panthers beat an improving Tampa Bay team 20-14 and answered a major "What If" question along the way, "What if Cam Newton was injured and out for 4-6 Weeks? Would the season be lost?"  For many teams the answer would be, "Season Over!" but not here. It turns out that DA, Derek Anderson, who started and ran the  same offense prepared for Cam, has the respect of the...Continue Reading!
