Doraville Real Estate


Situated at the upper portion of DeKalb County is the city of Doraville, a charming locality that takes pride in its sense of community. Doraville was established in 1871 and has undergone developments that peaked in the 1950s. As a result, many of the establishments and residences in Doraville follow a mid-century modern architecture, which is characterized by large glass windows and wide open spaces.

What makes Doraville unique is the diverse ethnicity of its residents. While almost half of the population is composed of Caucasians, people with Hispanic and Latino heritage came close in terms of population makeup. The rest of the residents are African American, Native American, Asian, and other races. The different ethnic backgrounds of Doraville residents make living in the city richer and much more exciting.

Proof of the international mix is Buford Highway, a community that runs not only through DeKalb but also nearby counties like Fulton and Gwinnett. Buford Highway has been dubbed the “best neighborhood for diversity” in the whole of Atlanta, and is home to local establishments like Plaza Fiesta, Northeast Plaza, and Buford Highway Farmer’s Market.

Doraville boasts of its complete list of city services courtesy of its leadership. Services available in Doraville include fire and rescue, senior assistance, police department, sanitation and recycling, and animal services.
