Moving to Charlotte New Job? By Choice?

What city did you move from
Charlotte is a city of imports

People move to the Charlotte area for lots of reasons.  Recent grads come for the good paying jobs in finance and tech, health and other services.  Execs come to join one of the many corporate headquarters, most recently Honeywell and the combined but unamed BBT and Suntrust merged entitiy. There are many regional headquarters located here,  such as Siemens, TIAA, ALLY  Bank, and a host of other companie who make their home here. Charlotte is a pro-business town in a pro business state!

Still others move here by choice,  like my family did back in the 1990’s.  My assistant, Kelley Ivory and her husband just moved two years ago from the New York City area too. I’ve helped more than 50 families re-locate to Charlotte for some reason other than work. Most come with “portable” jobs.  Some came for the weather.  Some come for the lifestyle- better weather means more outside play, be it by the lake, or just in the woods.

My wife and I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC,  moved to Hoboken NJ for graduate school, and then brought four young children and our beautiful dog,  a husky-shepard mix…

Here is a bit on my families relocation story, and quite a lot about Charlotte. It is older, but still popular with over 100,000 views, and things have only gotten better.

I am the owner and operator of and was inspired to create this website when I moved my young family of 6 down to Charlotte from the northeast, now over 20 years ago. Charlotte quickly became home to us and I wanted to create a website that would help individuals and families considering a move to Charlotte. I'm also the owner of The McDonald Group at eXp Realty (my day job) and have helped hundreds of folks relocate to Charlotte over the years.

So everybody’s heard that Atlanta calls itself the “capitol” of the New South. Ok, I’ll give them that. But if Atlanta is the “capitol”, then Charlotte is the heart of the New South. Charlotte is the 20th largest city
