Charlottesville Ranked High!!....AGAIN

By
Property Manager with Gibson Management Group, Ltd.

The Charlottesville area of Central Virginia is used to being ranked HIGH in most Forbes  "Places" surveys - Best Places to Live, Best Places to Retire, Best Place for Finding an EXCELLENT Property Manager and NOW we are ranked #11 in Best Small Places for Business and Careers According to their March 25, 2009 online issue.  We are the ONLY city in the state of Virginia and while I disagree that we do not have any billionaires per se * we have Fox Sports Newscaster Howie Long and his son Chris of the St.Louis Rams, Arthor John Grisham, Sissy Spacek and her husband Jack Fisk, and many members of the Dave Matthews Band which got its start on our Downtown Mall.  The Rolling Stones played in UVa's Scotts Stadium and U-2 will play here this year.

Many of the newer businesses are associated with the expansion of the University of Virginia Medical Center and the building of the new Emily Couric Cancer Center (named after Katie's sister who was a State Senator and died of cancer), the expansion of the private Martha Jefferson Hospital and the doubling in size of the NGIC * National Ground Intelligence Command * I'd tell you what they do but then I'd have to kill you.....yes, there are loads of opportunities for new, small businesses...it's where I started my business almost 12 years ago!!!
