I read in the newspaper this weekend that Business Week once again voted Chapel Hill as one of the 'best places' to raise kids. This is what the article had to say about Chapel Hill: "Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina. It attracts residents who enjoy a healthy lifestyle, cultural and historic attractions, and an intellectual environment. It is one of the most educated populations in the U.S."

Factors that were taken into consideration were school performance, number of schools, house hold expenditures, crime rates, air quality, job growth, family income, museums, parks, theatres, and diversity.  Affordability, safety and school test scores were given the greatest weight.

The Chapel HIll-Carrboro City Schools have 3 high schools, 4 middle schools and 10 elementary schools. The district has the state's highest average SAT score. More than 90% of students go on to college.

I have lived in Chapel Hill since 2004. My children attend Chapel Hill schools. I have taken advantage of all that Chapel Hill has to offer. Masha has lived in the Chapel Hill area since 1975 and has been a Real Estate Broker in the area since 1992. We both agree that Chapel Hill is a great place to live.

If you are thinking of buying or selling your home, now is the time to contact Masha Halpern & The Smart Move Team.

HAPPY NEW YEAR~
