Raleigh Real Estate Community Information
"City of Oaks"


Founded in 1792 as the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh was born by politics and its lifeblood is state government. Since the creation of the nearby Research Triangle Park in 1959, the city has evolved as a center for technological innovation. A continuous influx of new workers has led to the city almost doubling in population in the past 20 years. One of the country's fastest-growing cities, Raleigh is popular for its mild climate, low cost of living, easy pace and friendly demeanor.  The City has been divided in to areas called Inside the 440 Beltline to distinguish the downtown and historic area,  Midtown Raleigh which runs from just outside the 440 Beltline to Interstate 540 and North Raleigh which encompasses from Interstate 540 up to Falls Lake.
