I am moving to the Alpharetta/Roswell area in the next couple of weeks for a job. I will be staying with family until I can find an apartment. I want to move into my new place within a month.

From the sticky moving post:

1. Budget Around $700 for a one-bedroom, but this is somewhat flexible. This will be my first apartment after college.

2. House/Condo/Townhome? apartment

3. Employment Status(commute/work from home) My job is located just south of Alpharetta on the west side of GA 400. I would like a short commute, no more than 30 minutes if possible.

4. Children(public school vs. private) No kids, none in the near future.

5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two More suburban. I am not looking for a nightlife scene, just a quiet, safe place to live and work.

6. Easy access to public transit, important or not? Not important.

7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood. Not sure. Again, just looking for somewhere quiet and safe. An apartment with upgraded features (fireplace, separate shower, etc.) would be nice but I am expecting it to be out of the budget. Complex amenities (pool, fitness center, etc) are not important to me.

What complexes do you recommend? Any other tips or things I should know about?

ETA: Do you have any tips for meeting new people in the area? I am looking for friendships, gaming groups, etc, nothing romantic.

Hi! We live at the Preserve in Dunwoody..price range is what you're looking for, and there are LOTS of similar apartments nearby... 5 minute drive from 400, right off of Roswell Rd., I work on Holcomb Bridge rd. in Alpharetta/East Roswell and it takes me 15 min. to get to work. Also try 'promove'. Hope that helps!
