The state of Georgia is on a lot of people’s minds today. This beautiful state is appealing to people from all walks of life.

The state offers an interesting blend of modern and historic culture. Cities like Atlanta and Savannah have their own unique personalities. 

Maybe that is why 5.34 million existing homes were sold in 2018, according to data from the National Association of REALTORS® and 667,000 newly constructed homes were sold in 2018, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Atlanta’s topography has features that include thick trees and rolling hills. It is one of the most unique cities we have ever been to. The whole city has streets that have dense tree coverage and has earned the nickname of “The City in a Forest.” 

The main geographical features include mountains such as the Ridge-and-valley Appalachians in the northwest, the Blue Ridge Mountains in the northeast, the marshes and ocean of the Atlantic coast on the southeast to the Okefenokee Swamp on the South.  

Where else could you find a State that offers so much diversity. Yet! It’s our beautiful state of Georgia.
