Numerous “tapestry” categories are used to describe the composition of the various areas. Residents of Alpharetta include soccer moms, professional pride, enterprising professionals and bright young professionals along with others. “Technology is major for us, we’re early adapters of new devises…” and that seems to ring true with the cutting edge technology in Avalon and the surround area.
East Cobb and Roswell residents fall into those categories as well as savvy suburbanites, in style and young and restless. “Good food, good wine and cultural events are not to be missed”. Also mixed in to the tapestry are categories including exurbanites, up and coming, green acres and of course as this is the sprawl capital of America, boomburbs. “We’re affluent young families who have traded up to new housing in the growing metro areas. Bigger houses with mortgages are our compromise for longer commutes.” If that’s not right on target for many area zips, nothing is.
