I had never even been to Texas before when I was given an incredible work opportunity in Fort Worth. I had no idea if I would even like the area, the weather, the people there, and everything else since I was born and raised nearly 1,200 miles away. It took me several days of thinking, and I finally realized that this offer was just too good to be passed up. I started looking at apartments in North Fort Worth before I went there, because I wanted to know where I could potentially live before arriving there. That way, I would have time to go look at in person, since that is always the best way to get the most accurate impression.
I looked at quite a few different apartment complexes because Fort Worth is pretty huge. I wanted to live at least within 15 minutes of where I would be working, and that still left me with dozens of apartment complexes to look at. As soon as I saw Bella Vista though, I knew that it was the one I wanted. It is only about eight minutes from where I now work, and the apartments are gorgeous there.
That is not the only thing it has going for it though. I really liked everything about it, from the grounds and the way everything is set up to the apartment layout and amenities, both individually and community oriented. I called to see if they had the two bedroom available with the sunroom, and they had two left. I was planning on going down in two weeks to sign papers anyway, so I just moved that up by a week so I would not lose out on one of those two apartments. I am settled in here now, and Texas is much better than I could have ever imagined. The weather is glorious, the job is fantastic, the people are amazing, and I have a great place to live.
