Elizabeth Real Estate
From a College Community to a Trendy Place to Live
Before the 1900s, Elizabeth was a collection of smaller subdivisions on a streetcar line. But as the decades passed, Elizabeth became the center of development as hospitals, businesses, and residents relocated from the heart of Charlotte into this suburb close by.
Today, Elizabeth is still a popular place to live, and it's just minutes from Uptown Charlotte. The neighborhood feels suburban with its tree-lined streets and single-family homes, yet it has all of the conveniences of a neighborhood nestled in a thriving city.

A Tightly Knit Community
Elizabeth preserves its old-fashioned sense of community through a variety of neighborhood events and volunteering opportunities, from progressive dinners to a Home & Garden Tour to an 8K road race. These events are just a few more reasons to love Elizabeth.
