  • I have been to North Carolina. And I have seen many nice houses and homes in a state rich with southern culture. I'm considering a move out there from the big city life here in the Windy City of Chicago. I have spoke to Charleston real estate listings and I am hopeful they can find a reasonable but beautiful home. They are worth checking out , but for now, I'm looking through areas that will suit my living needs. I stronly urge you to check them out at http://www.brianwalshrealty.com/featured-listings.html
