Realtors get a lot of interesting questions about the area from people looking to move here from various parts of the country. Typically they involve local schools, or questions about the real estate market. Sometimes they involve comparing different areas such as Greer or Simpsonville.
One of the most interesting questions from relocating people is about the things to do and the lifestyle here. I am not sure what they expect, but one thing seems consistent with their responses. They are surprised at the arts, music and events that are going on in Greenville and the surrounding area almost 100% of the time.
There is always something to do here. Whether you like country music, the theatre, great food or the simple fun of a farmer's market something is happening all of the time. One of the resources that I refer them to is VisitGreenvilleSC.com/events/ . This site (although designed for tourists and vacationers, has a large list local events that are updated and kept current.
If someone is coming into town to look for a home, they need not worry about a lack of places to go and things to see. It is true that we have a lot of laid back southern charm, but we also have a pretty active calendar that is full of fun and good times.
