I thought it was a good city (as far as cities go, since I'm more of a mountain girl). We actually lived in SE Charlotte about 20 minutes from the link you posted.

As far as neighborhoods go, I would recommend Matthews, Mint Hill, or Indian Trail (it's actually over the border in SC I think). The are all pretty much a straight shot up Independence (74) to the job so it's convenient. The only thing is there are quite a few lights on Independence. We owned a house in Matthews and my husband worked in Charlotte East at the YMCA. There's a lot of gentrification going on in that area, so you could have nice areas 5 minutes away from some scarier areas. I also knew some folks who lived SE of NoDa/Plaza Midwood (in one of the nicer sections).

Anyways, I know quite about bit about that area so if you have any other questions feel free to PM me!
Thanks!! We actually just returned from our house hunting trip and chose a home in Matthews
