Like many areas of the country, transferring to the Augusta, GA, metropolitan area may make you feel like you need a crash course in local geography. A local may tell a non-local that they live “in Augusta”, but actually live in a number of surrounding areas in neighboring counties, including the Columbia County towns of Grovetown, Evans, and Martinez, GA, and the Aiken County towns of Aiken, North Augusta, and Graniteville, SC, and a number of smaller neighborhood areas within. Each town has a unique feel and a slightly different relative location to key Augusta employers, including Fort Gordon and the U.S. Army Cyber Center for Excellence/Cyber Command, Plant Vogtle, Savannah River Site (SRS), and the Augusta medical district. Are you a golfer, a hiker, an exercise fanatic, an arts fan, a foodie, or a parent of young children in need of a good playground?
Don’t get overwhelmed. Avoid the “if only I knew about that neighborhood when we first moved here”. When choosing a Augusta real estate agent, a long-term Augusta resident can help you navigate the Augusta metro area and choose the area that fits your house hunt priorities, whether it is commute, house style or neighborhood demographic.
