Setting the Stage for Robust Job Growth

With a business-friendly environment and simple tax market, Atlanta has become a hub for many major national and international-based companies. Numerous tech giants have opened offices or relocated their headquarters to Atlanta, including Apple, Microsoft, Twitter, and Visa. This migration of tech companies also moves a wealth of industry-specific and supporting jobs with it. Over the past five years, Atlanta has seen a 15% growth in tech jobs, while Atlanta-based Georgia Tech produces more talent at home, with the most technology graduates per year in the U.S., according to research firm CBRE. A booming economy and more job opportunities than ever before have led to Atlanta becoming a hub for young professionals, setting the stage for the city's continued growth and expansion.

Walkable Neighborhoods Are Trending

In today's real estate market, homebuyers are searching for new homes that have everything they need within an ideal walking distance from their home. While cars are certainly still a necessity, the ability to leave them in the garage is trending with all generations across the country. In Atlanta, the very best of the region is at residents' fingertips, from critically acclaimed restaurants and award-winning chefs to global luxury brand shopping. Atlanta is also known for its outdoor lifestyle with the Atlanta BeltLine.

Internationally Recognized Private Schools

Education is a top priority for so many families, and also for Atlanta. The city is filled with private schools that not only inspire future generations but provide global curriculums that expand their worldview. Da Vinci International School is an international trilingual school for children aged 18 months to fifth grade, with full-immersion academic programs in French, Spanish, and English. Their home within the Blue Heron Nature Preserve provides an idyllic environment where children can develop a strong relationship with nature.
