Union County NC, A Great Place To Call Home

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Union County NC is located just east of Charlotte NC and has been the fastest growing county in NC for several years and is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. It's located in the south central section of North Carolina and borders with South Carolina. It's has easy access to Charlotte's Douglas International Airport, and area attractions such as Bank of America Stadium (home to the NFL's Carolina Panthers), Bobcat Area (home to the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats) and Lowes Motor Speedway. NASCAR was born in the Carolinas and the Charlotte area is home to many of NASCAR's racing teams, drivers, and personel. Corporate giants such as Bank of America, Lowes, Lance, Wachovia are located in the area and Charlotte is also known as a large banking center. A large portion of Union County's population commutes to Charlotte for employment, but Union County also offers great employment opportunites. 

Union County was once known primarily as a rural area with much agriculture and farming. Much of this agriculture and farmland is still predominate in the eastern part of the county, while the western side has experienced the outpouring of growth from the Charlotte area. The western side of the county is more heavily populated with communities and homes but still the wide open spaces and lots of trees are still abundant. The schools are among the finest in the state, and taxes here are low. These two factors have contributed highly to the demand to live in Union County. Some of the largest homes and estates in North Carolina are located in the southwestern section of Union County in the Marvin and Weddington communities. Union County also has the larges equestrian community in the state and is home to the annual Queen's Cup Steeplechase event. Boaters and fishermen have many area lakes provide for recreational purposes, and for hunters there is a great amount of wildlife in the area as wel. Golfers will never get tired of playing the same course as there are quite a few to choose from in the area and Union County alone has 9 public and private courses.

For weekend getaways, Union County is only 3 hrs. away from the Myrtle Beach SC Grand Strand and about 3 hrs. drive to the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west.

Union County's climate has fairly mild winters with perhaps one annual snowfall, and great temperatures throughout the rest of the year.

Discover Union County and you'll find what so many know already... That Union County is a Great Place to Call Home!

Hi Dale,

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Rain!

Kevin Sandridge, here. I joined the Active Rain community not too long ago myself and wanted to drop a line to share some of the good vibes and welcome wishes I have received already.

A Bit About Active Rain

I'm very excited about this community - basically because folks seem so willing to help out, provide industry insight, and share their good news and experiences!

When I started out on Active Rain, I felt a little overwhelmed.  I hope the following points and suggested sites will help bring you into the mix!  Just my way of saying that I'm glad you're here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One:  Be sure to include a good amount of information on your profile page.  Check out the profiles on other Realtor's sites here on Active Rain who are listed as "Featured" or "Tops" in their area (look for high point totals).  You'll find that this will seriously boost your presence on ActiveRain - via the added points. 

Two: I urge you to keep blogging on this site!  You will be AMAZED at the awesome feedback you receive very soon after they hit the network!  I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs that provide me with ideas about what I'd like to comment on - both industry wise and just for fun!  Check it out I am more than willing to step you through the site and to help you get a few more blog posts generated if you wish - as a way of adding some value and paying forward some good networking vibes!  :)

Three: Be sure to add in a good number of posts about what you think and consider pertinent regarding your area of expertise!  You'll notice that many if not all of the Featured posting bloggers here on AR do this.

Lastly, I do quite a lot of work via social networks, email campaigns, and relationship building.  If I can ever be of any assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

Here are a few great sites to visit (some of my favorites).  If you like the information they provide, be sure to let them know I sent you!

Looking forward to what you'll share with us here on Active Rain!  :)

Blessings,
