Hi, I would recommend looking at an app on a smart phone called Spot crime! I did this before moving into an apartment on Morganford (in St. Louis) and boy, am I glad I did! It's riddled with violent crimes! All you do is enter the address and chose to be emailed when a crime hits on that road or specific area. You open the email and the app. will specify which crime it was and on what intersections! good luck and great question! Keep us updated! ... more

I would suggest that you apply for a job with as many apartments as you can. Good luck!

It depends. If you are wanting to be a leasing agent for an apartment then you don't need a real estate license.

It's been years since you posted this.
Did you ever make the move to Flower Mound?
I would think your cost of living would be lower here.
Although housing prices are moving up quickly, especially in Flower Mound. ... more

Best place I can think of is Old Downtown Coppell.
Small community...maybe 400 homes.
Walk to the Saturday farmers market.
Walk to the park.
Walk to 3-4 community style restaurants.

I'd be happy to send you a list of homes for sale if you are still looking.

Crime is the best thing to do is check with the police department or perhaps online crime stats. Safe is a relative word, so safe to you may not be the same as to someone else.

Let us know if we can help you find a home in this beautiful area.

There's lots of great companies and you should look at several to see who is the best fit for you.
Some things I can suggest for a new agent before you decide.
#1. Ask to see the broker's training room. Every broker will tell you they have training, but if they don't have a place to do it, how helpful is that going to be?
#2. Ask to see their training calendar. Is it full, empty, are there classes appropriate to your level. How much does the training cost?
#3. Ask if you can sit in on a class or sales meeting. Ask other new agents how things are working for them.
#4. Ask if you will have a sponsor or mentor.

We'd love to talk with you this week if you have time.
Also check out my website for plenty of questions to ask brokers/recruiters when you interview.

One thing I love about Keller Williams is that we are growing like crazy, profitable, debt free, and an open book company. There is a feeling of family and sharing....and better yet PROFIT SHARING.

Feel free to contact me any time and we'll help you get started.

Great location. Post War homes often 2bedroom 1bath or 3bedroom 1 bath, occasionally with garage. Many long time residents still in the neighborhood.
I see many people walking to DART light rail from this neighborhood, so that can give you transportation.
There are some rentals, but always tough these days with vouchers.
Best thing to do is check with your counselor to see if they have a list of owners who will accept your voucher.
Best wishes and good luck.

Tolerance for humidity is kind of personal. People who were are used to California or other non-humid places seem to always complain about the humidity in Texas, the Midwest(I've lived there also) etc. I have always lived with humidity, except for the two years I lived in California so I guess I'm used to it. It just seems from personal observation that some people just can't seem to get used to it. I have to admit, it can get kind of oppressive....even for me. ... more

There is no such thing as "the most diverse neighborhood in the U.S." That description would fit hundreds of neighborhoods in all 50 states. If you want the demographics for a particular town / city / zip code, you need to visit the Census Bureau's website. and type in your location and review the demographics for the area. ... more

Hey Brous85, if you're looking for an apartment complex that does 6 month terms, I would recommend checking out Oak Park apartments at 5318 S Hampton Rd. That should put you pretty close to work, your cost would be between $670-$900/month, and they have quite good reviews. If you're wanting something a little more upscale, and trendy, you could try looking in Uptown or even downtown Dallas. Wouldn't recommend trying to make a commute from Ft. Worth if you're trying to keep it under 30 minutes. If you would like any further help locating an apartment, let me know! Always glad to help! ... more
