California has San Francisco. New York has The Big Apple. Texas has Dallas. And Georgia has Atlanta. Known as the business and financial hub of the Southeast, Atlanta is home to more than 300 Fortune 500 companies. The corporate executives and their families who live, work and play in Metro Atlanta make up some of the nation’s most luxurious communities.
This is especially true in the North Atlanta market area where cities such as Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek, Cumming, Marietta and Roswell offer superior schools from Pre-K to advanced higher education. And the luxury executive homes found here serve as suitable rewards for career achievements and elegant expressions of success.
