My wife and I will be relocating from TN to VA in the coming months. During the transition phase we will be looking for an apartment and have settled on Norfolk for the time being.

Doing some searching on here, I see that Ghent seems to be a popular place for apartment living. We are in our early 30's with no kids so schools aren't an issue right now.

My wife will be working at most of the hospitals in the Hampton Roads area and I will be flying out of NN or Norfolk quite a bit.

If you have any specific apartment buildings, real estate management company, etc I would certainly appreciate it.

Thank you

We might be moving to the Norfolk area soon, too, and want to be within shouting distance of Old Dominion University and roads to Newport News. We are considering Ghent but are worried about crime and flooding. Are there any other nice neighorhoods not too far from ODU? We don't have any kids and would consider living in a condo.

Ghent does not have bad crime. Worse crimes commited are cars broken into..Ghent is probably the safest part of Norfolk. Some of the newer apartment complexes have brand new parking garages and seem to me to be very safe.. ODU is right down the street from ghent and floods are not the usual..We had 5 inches of rain in a hour and a half. That's why it flooded. Newport News is close too, quick hop on the interstate and your there.

Ghent is also in the neighborhood of Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and right down the street from DePual Hospital.
