Creative Loafing Highlights West End HERE
However, they did not catch it all!
I often receive emails or calls of potential buyers curious about our neighborhood. Many times they want to know if what they’ve read in online reviews are true….
-High crime, blighted community, depressed, no shops, low-income families – and many more negative comments that would make anyone wonder ‘Why should I buy there..?”
All I can say is “Don’t believe everything you read..!!!” We all know, often times the media does not paint an accurate picture of what really IS. Old stereotypes, opinions, rumors and past experiences can influence our thoughts. When I first moved here (5yrs ago) I spent a lot of time fighting and trying to prove to family and friends just how wrong they were about the neighborhood. Now, I am really enjoying being one of Atlanta’s best kept “Secret Neighborhoods”. I felt,‘ if someone is so foolish to let their opinions on a community be swayed based on rumors than we don’t need that kind of neighbor anyway’. I want more neighbors like those I have- movers and shakers, adventurous, passionate, caring, the challenge seekers, strong, those willing to break down barriers to do what others say ‘can’t be done’ , I need more neighbors who garden (because I LOVE getting fresh veggies from their garden-lol), more neighbors who bake (and drop my kids off cupcakes or make me dinner when I’m sick/prego) The neighbors I have care enough about their kids and education that they didn’t just move to a good school district, they created a charter school, home school and WORK IN the local public schools to MAKE them great.
And when we didn’t have anything to do- we created our own: Chili Parties, Pizza Parties, Historic Holiday Parties, Auction nights, Screen on the Green, Dog Parades, themed dinners! But there are also plenty of public places i.e. Museums, restaurants, Book stores and need I say it.. Krispy Kreme!!
The community benefits of living in West End and Westview are endless…………it depends on YOU!
But if you’re still not convinced and need additional information-here is my New Buyer script:
“Welcome to MY South West Atlanta!
