Any recommendations on nice neighboorhoods/complexes? My wife will be working downtown so we're looking for something that won't be more than a 1/2 hr commute. Our budget is around $700 for a 1 bedroom. We are both young professionals in our mid to late 20s.

Find something towards the northern burbs near the DART rail, red-green-blue or the TRE. Wife can take the train with a monthly pass. Learn the lay of the land and move later on, once you know what works for you.

I recommended looking into "the village" MyVillageApts.com They have a lot to choose from and many different price ranges. I'm sure you can find a one bedroom in your price range. I live here now and my boyfriend has lived here for 2 years and we love it. The community is full of young professionals in there 20's and 30's and there are a lot of conveniences close by.

Any other good areas for young professionals? How about the Irving area?

I've lived in the Village for quite a while too. I recommend it to numerous people moving to town. There are ~14 complexes within the Village. They take good care of it and offer a number of amenities. There are some new complexes (read: more expensive) and some older complexes. It's close to the Lovers Lane DART. I used to drive to the Mockingbird Station DART because then you could take either the blue or red line. When I drove downtown around 7:30, it was about a 15 minute drive with a little bit of traffic. Some days, it would take less time.

Obviously there are other complexes in Dallas but this is what I know.
