I recommend The Woodlands, but check the reviews of apartments online as they can be hit and miss. You can't go wrong with a house in the Woodlands BUT I assume you are renting at this time. That is a wise choice to rent until you "know" Houston as we have some BAD areas. Of course, we also have wonderful areas.
Congrats on the job and welcome!
You are in luck! There are great options around Bush IAH. The Woodlands provides easy access and is a wonderful area. If you require closer access try Lake Houston, Humble or Summerwood. My office is actually located in this area. If you commute from Humble travel time is 10-15 minutes!

The drive to IAH via 1960 is literally about 20 minutes (I saw several people mentioned The Woodlands as being a 15 minute drive to IAH, but I swear I've lived here many years and there is no way anyone could get from the middle of The Woodlands to ANY parking lot at IAH in 15 minutes unless they were driving 80 mph at midnight. :) It IS possible under the best of circumstances to drive straight down I-45 from the edge of The Woodlands to the exit ramp for IAH in 15 minutes... but you'd still be at least 15-20 minutes to the closest parking lot. Just sayin'.
Thanks... and Welcome to the Houston area!
The Woodlands is good and accessible to the Airport - lots of restaurants, shopping, etc., and close to Conroe, if you like to go to the lake. You can also look around the Fallbrook area. If you don't mind driving, you can go to Kingwood/Atascosita as well.
Much of what you rent depends on the area you choose, when you are moving, and of course your budget. If you have pets, you will have additional deposit.
If you have specific questions, please call or email me at the contact below.

The areas around the "big" airport are mostly suburbs. Nice communities big and small. You may have heard of "The Woodlands", only 15 min away. Most of these areas are family oriented with parks, community pools and great schools. This doesn't mean a single person can't live there. Tons of restaurants, shopping but not as much night life. Lake Houston is close and Lake Conroe only 45 min away if you like fishing and boating.
Inner loop areas could offer a wider variety of entertainment like major sports stadiums, live entertainment such as opera, symphony and Broadway shows plus more high scale eating options. Prices in these areas for sale and lease can be a bit more expensive.
Working with an experienced Realtor that works all of these areas would be a plus for you. Many, like me, work with renters and buyers. Let us know if we can send you a Houston relocation packet with information on the Houston and surrounding areas.
Welcome to Houston!
