The Garden District... 

The Garden District is a unique center city collection of single family homes and condominiums that combine urban living and modern lifestyle. The properties here have up-to-date features and classic designs.

This neighborhood was completely rebuilt circa 2000. It was master planned with the best of new urbanism, a planning and development approach that promotes the creation and restoration of diverse, walkable, compact, vibrant, and mixed-use communities. The details include parks, porches, walkability, and desirably functional architecture.

Homes in the area range in size and the styles span from modest lofts to spacious single family homes.

rkjrabrams - Zillow Review 

Nancy worked hard to sell our unique home-we had a constant flow of showings and open houses due to all of her marketing. We received excellent communication throughout the selling process and helped with negotiations. We would highly recommend Nancy to anyone buying or selling a home!

Nancy and her team were fabulous. This was my first time buying a home, and while at first it seemed overwhelming and stressful, Nancy was there every step of the way coaching us through the process. I felt like she listened to what we wanted and put us in the houses that matched that description  and let us make the decisions on the house rather than trying to sell the houses to us. I very much appreciated how in the highly competitive and fast paced market of Charlotte Nancy was willing to work around the clock to make sure we found a house we love. When the time comes for us to look for a different home, I have no doubt about who we will be choosing to represent us as sellers.

The 1st District is nicknamed: The Garden District 

Charlotte Uptown's First Ward Community is the first of the four Wards in Uptown Charlotte NC.  Each Ward has its own distinct personality but First Ward is where it all starts.

First Ward's boundaries are E Trade St., N Tryon St., and I-277 (an urban loop highway).

First Ward in Uptown Charlotte NC is an award-winning mixed income district and is home to approximately 1,000 residents.

First Ward has come a long way in terms of development over the past 10 years, bringing in more residential homes and entertainment venues.

This community began as a vacant land with public housing and now has transformed into planned development by The Charlotte Housing Authority and Bank of America.

With the help of a $41.6 million HUD HOPE VI grant, First Ward is now fully developed and sprawling with new condos, townhomes, commercial buildings and universities.
