One of the northernmost cities in historic Fulton County, Alpharetta is a commercial and private real estate hotspot, combining some of the southern U.S.’s most historic neighborhoods with plenty of room for new development.
Founded in 1858, it now has an estimated population of over 65,000 and during the workday that population swells to over 100,000.
Alpharetta is Georgia’s 12th most populous city and is locally known as the “Technology City of the South” because of the large number of tech-focused companies it hosts. Alpharetta’s combination of old culture and reception of new companies make it a hub for many types of people. As a finalist for the 2017 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management, Alpharetta is one of the premier spots for outdoor recreation and family entertainment.
Education plays a large part in the city’s value. Alpharetta schools are part of the Fulton County Public School system, which was recently listed as One of the Top 100 School Districts in Places You Can Afford by Money Magazine.
With its marriage of historic charm from Downtown Alpharetta and new-world amenities like Avalon and the North Point Mall, Alpharetta will continue to grow for years to come.
