The decision to move to TX seemed simple and the right thing to do. Now reality started to kick in. Where are we going to live? Where are we going to work? How are we going to move our household goods? How do we get out of our lease? Are we sure this is the right thing to do?
Julie, having never been to Dallas, needed an orientation trip, so she lined up a few job interviews and took a two day trip to the DFW metroplex and interviewed with companies in Fort Worth, Irvine, and Plano. She drove into Dallas one afternoon and fell in love with the center of the city with the skyscrapers and bordering trendy neighborhoods of Uptown and Deep Ellum. Upon her return to Big Bear we decided that we did not want to live in Fort Worth and that Dallas and its surrounding suburbs seemed to offer the the best opportunity for employment while she obtained her Real Estate Broker license.
The best thing for us to do was to look for an apartment in downtown Dallas; close to the Metro allowing us to experience Dallas from the inside out.
Looking online, we found a nice apartment complex in Farmers Market and leased an apartment overlooking the city light. This also provided us with the ability to walk downtown, uptown, and Deep Ellum. One down and several more unanswered questions to go.
