The Golden Isles has been selected as one of the nation's best retirement destinations in a newly released book.
The Brunswik Golden Isles is amoung three locations in Georgia named in the book, "America's 100 Best Places to Retire" . The other two cities in Georgia named in the study are Savannah and Gainesville. The book is published by Where to Retire and is available on line at wheretoretire.com and Amazon.
According to a new release, editors and staff spent 11 months researching more than 800 cities before narrowing down the list. The research included interviews with retirees who decided to choose the Golden Isles as the place they chose to live.
The areas selected were placed into 10 categories, including beaches, mountains, low costs, four seasons and appealing downtown areas.
"This book allows readers to tap into the wisdom of hundreds of relocated retirees, including those who moved to Brunswick/Golden Isles, one of our best 10 beach towns," said WHERE TO RETIRE EDITOR Annette Fuller. "This volume will get you dreaming of your retirement and where you might land. But the stories also bring you past wistful dreams and into the realm of real research, including information on weather, taxes, downtown attractions and even thecaveats of each city."
Other beach towns named include Biloxi, Miss.m Hilton Head, S.C. Myrtle Beach, S.C Port St. Lucie, Fla., and Wilmington. N.C.
"This is by far our most polular book, which compiles and updates profiles from our magazine." Fuller said. "It will be your most helpful asset in planning your own post-retirement departure and arrival"

NOTE FROM WENDY ...I have had many clients purchasing homes now for future retirement. As far out as 5 years! Rentals on the Island are hard to find. These future retirees are renting their homes here with good profits and moving here later. Interest rates are climbing. if this is something you are able to do...now is the time to do it!

"My husband and I recently retired and were looking to find a new home somewhere on the southeast coast. During our on-line research we found Wendy Simpson, at the Michael Harris Team. We scheduled a date to meet with Wendy to look at some potential homes. Wendy showed us more than houses; she spent six hours taking us around Brunswick, St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. She said she wanted to show us the beautiful Golden Isles. When we chose to have a new home built, she acted in our best interest in every step of the process. She gave us positive tips and advice, as well as checked on the progress of the construction when we were not able to make the trip to GA from NC. We highly recommend Wendy Simpson, of the Michael Harris Team, to anyone thinking of moving to the Golden Isles area of GA."
