Earlier this year, I put a poll on Nextdoor (in the Cary area) asking why they moved to their current house. I was shocked by the answer. 61% indicated they moved to be closer to better schools. Obviously, this number doesn’t represent ALL people – it was small in responses (125) and limited to a small area in Cary on a local platform.
However, it emphasized the importance that families in Wake County place on education that so many people were willing to make a life changing decision to uproot themselves in order for their student(s) to attend school somewhere else.
This lit a fire among three things I am passionate about: Education (as a former teacher and district administrator for WCPSS), Homes (as a realtor), and Research (as a geek who MUST learn and teach).
This led me to create this blog as a way to communicate, exchange ideas, and share from a unique perspective. I will be sharing thoughts and news about schools. I will be sharing thoughts and interesting information about the housing market in the area as well as home tips and neighborhood information. I will be sharing anything I feel will be valuable to you as a member of this amazing community.
I’m excited to start this blogging journey with you and I’m always open to feedback and good conversation. Thanks for visiting!
