Peachtree Corners Identity Crisis

Peachtree Corners Real Estate Agent, Jennifer Sibley of Corners Realty Group, urges you to make the switch to using "Peachtree Corners" for your address.

I live in Peachtree Corners.  Where do you live?

Did you know that the United States Postal Service now allows residents of the new city of Peachtree Corners to use "Peachtree Corners" in their address? I know that saying or writing "Norcross" is habit and many people are reluctant to switch because they are worried about missing out on important mail or people not being able to find their house, but I've been using Peachtree Corners as my address since June and haven't had any problems.

I think that it is important for the residents of Peachtree Corners to make the switch in order to help us establish an identity separate from Norcross or Berkeley Lake.

Peachtree Corners is now considered "acceptable" for the entire 30092 ZIP code by the postal service and I for one am tired of people asking "Is that Norcross?" when I tell them that I live in Peachtree Corners.

I invite you to join me in Peachtree Corners pride and start using Peachtree Corners for your address. If you don't live in Peachtree Corners, but are interested in moving here, visit my site about the Peachtree Corners Real Estate Market.

Andy, Unfortunately the United States Postal Service only lists "Peachtree Corners" as acceptable for the entirety of the 30092 ZIP code and parts of the 30071 ZIP code at this time. The preferred city for 30096 is Duluth, but Berkeley Lake is acceptable. For 30360, Atlanta is the preferred city, but Doraville and Dunwoody are acceptable, depending on where you actually live. However, for residents of the city of Peachtree Corners who live in the 30071 ZIP code, Peachtree Corners is also acceptable by the USPS.

I think I will stick with Norcross so nobody associates me with the city and its HOA err government

Lets go ahead and expose the real reason you are for this. It makes you more money. Just like everything about the new city. It is about power and wealth. No one really cares about the people and any real issues.

Are you going to be proud of your city when tomorrow at 5pm they approve spending a min of $10,000,000 for land

Hi Brent, Thanks for your feedback. I assure you that I care about people and issues and very much want to see this new city thrive. I chose to locate my business in Peachtree Corners because during my experience as a real estate agent in all areas of Atlanta, the Peachtree Corners community offered a friendly community that was convienent to the city and has all the benefits of suburban living with all the sophistication of the city. I think that most people in Peachtree Corners recognize how uniquely wonderful this area of town is and want to work to maintain those qualities, giving all of us a safe and prosperous place to call home. Maintaining and increasing property values is good for all homeowners in Peachtree Corners. The economic success of all small businesses, including mine, is vital for the continued economic growth of the city in terms of job creation, property values and public resources such as schools and parks. Because I both live and work in Peachtree Corners, my personal success depends on the success of the community and therefore I am fully invested, financially and emotionally, in seeing Peachtree Corners thrive.
