Why I love living in Decatur

Monday, June 26, 2017

Pooja and Nathan Berrong

“Natalie and her team have been absolutely amazing to work with! She helped us get our house sold in 48 hours with minimal changes on our end. Her team has been so helpful in keeping us on track with important dates, signing documents, and getting all necessary inspection items completed. They’ve gone so far to even schedule and coordinate the vendors and appointments for us.
“Natalie also has a beautiful eye for colors, details, and design. I couldn’t ask for a better agent to help me build my dream home! We’re lucky to have her in this process!”


Nathan and Pooja Berrong got engaged in August 2008. The couple tied the knot later that year. They worked with Natalie Gregory to sell their home and find a new one in Decatur.

Natalie Gregory SOLD is the best real estate team in the city – a decade of professional experience, strong negotiation skills, and in-depth knowledge of Atlanta’s communities make them the go-to brokerage for buyers and sellers.

They go the extra mile. That means working closely with vendors and coordinating on behalf of clients, developing a good understanding of clients’ wants and needs, and, ultimately, negotiating the best deal possible.

The Berrongs got in touch with Natalie and the team for professional guidance and assistance. They were not disappointed – a quick sale and a new home later, they are living the dream of homeownership in one of America’s most vibrant cities.

What’s in Decatur?

Niche.com named Decatur the best place to live in Georgia in 2017. The website, which helps users find the best neighborhoods and schools, ranked the suburb’s desirability based on housing trends, amenities, quality of schools, crime rates, and employment statistics.

Decatur’s central location brings residents close to shopping centers, restaurants, entertainment venues, and hospitals. The town square hosts community events like Concerts on the Square and the Decatur Arts Festivalthroughout the year.

It is also served by one of the most competitive school systems in the county, making it ideal for families with children.

The housing stock is quite diverse – single-family homes, townhomes, and condosare just some of the choices. Because Decatur is an established community, a third of its housing stock consists of homes builtbefore 1940. Most neighborhoods, however, have a good mix of older and new construction homes.

Some of Decatur’s most sought after neighborhoods include:

  • Glenwood Estates
  • Great Lakes
  • Forrest Hills
  • Leafmore Hills
  • Lindmoor Woods
  • Medlock Park
  • Oakhurst real estate
  • Oak Grove
  • Sagamore Hills
  • University Heights
  • Winnona Park

On average, residents spend just 24 minutes commuting to work every day – the shortest of Atlanta’s suburbs.They also have easy access to public transit, with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) nearby.

With a population of about 20,000, Decatur is a tight-knit community. There are countless local environmental organizations and volunteer groups that help raise social awareness and encourage people to participate.
