I'm planning to bring my wife and new born baby to Dallas area once our baby is cleared by the doctors to fly on an international flight and proper visa is completed. I'm a U.S. Citizen by birth and my profession is a network admin professional and my wife is a foreign nurse but she is study for her NCLEX RN to be able to work in Dallas area. We are thinking of moving to Richardson area because of the amount of IT companies in the area and also because Richardson is mainly a family area.


Does anyone know of any apartment complex that will allow us to pay upfront for the rental accommodations? We have plenty of money saved up due to working in the Middle East. The only reason why i want to move back state side is because I don't want our baby to grow up in a hostile area.[/font]

Thanks

contact an apt locator service
someone posted on another thread that she found it difficult to get apt complexes to take money up front when she was moving after she lost her job in another town and did not have work in Dallas

you can google up some or maybe someone will send you a PM with one they used

Thanks. I was just mentioning that to my wife last night. I also created a list of IT recruiters that I'm about to submit my resume to just to see what is available in Richardson area. I know its better to move once you have a job but sometimes you have to take a step of faith.

Good. You'll need it. People are moving here sight-unseen thinking we're an oasis of jobs in a desert of unemployment. Competition is fierce. Shangri-La DFW is NOT. Althought it might be cooler than the Middle East in the summer (as freaking ironic as that sounds).
