Question from a former knottie

My husband got a job in Richardson, near George Bush and Renner. We are thinking about moving (we currently live in the Mid-Cities area). We don't know anything about that part of town. Do any of you ladies know what areas are nice and which should be avoided? We are just looking for an apartment right now. Thanks!

    that's a real touchy area. literally one side of the street is nice, and the other is government paid housing. I'll get some names for you to check out though :)

    Off Alma and Renner, there are some really nice apartments that some friends of mine live at - Homes of Prairie Springs I believe is the name of them.

    I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

    I saw these online. I always wonder how accurate the online photos are. They can be so deceiving. Good to know they look nice in person too.

    DH's brother used to live in an apartment complex at George Bush and Campbell (right on the Southwest Corner) and I don't think he had any complaints.  It looks nice.  It's super close to Target and Walmart and Firewheel Mall.

    There is also a really nice apt complex that DH lived in before we moved in together at 75 and Campbell and his brother currently lives there now.    Its called Post Eastside.  It is apartments on top and restaurants/shoppes down below (Panera, Twisted Root, Jersey Mikes, etc.)   I absolutely loved the set up and they never had any problems.

    It's a little farther from Bush/Renner but he could take Campbell down to Bush if he wanted to avoid some traffic.

    I second Post Eastside. I know someone who lived there. Great location and it's within walking distance of so many cool places.

    I live in Richardson! We bought a house over by Berkner High School. I had friends that lived in that Post Eastside. Its nice and clean and has good layouts and location. I really enjoy the area because we're in between Dallas and Plano.

    I live in Sachse which is right up the street.  Not sure what you are looking (renting or buying) for but there are lots of houses for sale.

    I used to live in Richardson off Renner Rd at the Marquis at Waterview close to Collin Creek Mall. I liked living in that area it was pretty quiet.

    You might want to try Plano or the Addison/North Dallas area too.
