Good Morning,

If you want to be sure of a neighborhood, the best thing to do is drive by there, at different times of the day. Check with your coworkers or friends because they will tell you how it really is.

As realtors we are not allowed to define an area as safe or otherwise. Everyone has a slightly different perception of how they consider a neighborhood.

If you would like me to help you search some apartments in that area with your specific criteria, please let me know.

Thank you for noticing my answer. I am assuming you work close to the area you are looking into and want to be in the vicinity. Let me know if you have any other questions. - Persis

Nhythecker, I would suggest that you go to HAR and pull up some properties in the area and as soon as you find some that you are interested in, please call me or e-mail me and I will be glad to set up an appointment to view. I agree with the previous agent when she stated that as Realtors we are not allowed to define which areas are safe and which are not. My suggestion is to drive all the areas you might be interested in over a weekend and feel out the neighborhood for yourself. Looking forward to hearing from you. Best of luck

We, Real Estate Agents, are unable to quantify a place being "safe." Almost all of my work work is done in the Inner Loop areas. Contact me when you have an opportunity. I would love to help. Thanks and have a wonderful day.

Good Morning ...

Realtors cannot comment on whether an area is "safe." Here is a link to reported criminal activity within Zip Code 77008 ...

I also suggest that you drive through the area at several different times of day, as well as on the weekend. You might also want to talk with some residents ... they're very frank about where they live (good or bad) and will provide some great information.

I'd be happy to work with you ... and as a tenant, you would incur no cost, since my fees would be paid by the landlord. If I can be of further assistance, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards ...
