It has taken a while, but a friend forwarded your post to me in hopes I could help. My husband and I have lived in Charleston over 20 years and would be happy to fill you in and answer any questions you still have. We live West of the Ashley, off highway 61, in a large subdivision called Shadowmoss. I also know a few good real estate agents here who would be happy to work with you. Many people who first move here go to Mt. Pleasant or Daniel Island.In Mt. Pleasant you can probably get more for your money, and on Daniel Isl. you will probably get less! It is all a matter of where you work and what you want to be closest to. Please email me when you get here or if you are already here at email@example.com and we can arrange to speak or meet. We really like Charleston and all it has to offer and I look forward to speaking to you in person. And, by the way, there are LOTS of good eating places and I can help with the grocery stores,etc. also!
