Hi, since Christmas 2009 when i first visited Norman I fell in love. I was just over there again for the week of Thanksgiving for the first time since 09. I spent most of the time in Sapulpa, but also went to Norman and Broken Arrow. Was genuinely sad to leave. My wife has family in all those cities I just mentioned. My brother in law offered me a job and I'm trying to get up there because the economy in South Florida is bad and I'm tried of living in apartments. I also can't stand the people here and Oklahomans are by far the friendliest people I have ever met. It seems like a great place to raise a family also and I have a 1 year old.

My brother in law's shop is located in Moore. He has a landscaping business, so that means things will start up for him again in March probably. I'm considering going up there before my wife since we are hurting a little bit now and the better pay/quality of life would help us out big time. She has a really good job and her company has positions in Oklahoma. She has already put in a transfer request and needs to wait for that to go through.

Now I'm trying to find an apartment to live in while working for him. Unfortunately my brother in law is going through a divorce, so I can't stay with him until my wife and son come up. Any help would be appreciated. I'm leaning towards Moore since that is where my job would be, but any other recommendations or names of communities would be appreciated. A place that offers short term leases would be great too.

Renting will probably be tough. Traditionally, it seems, in every state there is a period of two months between June 1 and August 1 when there is a glut of housing stock. This is the time of year when families most often move and colleges, for the most part, are on vacation except for summer class. I would be surprised if you find a short lease in a great neighborhood. Not that it can't be done, just that it is hard to find and demand is great.

Find a nice place to live and be prepared to sign a year lease. At the end of the lease you will know far more about OK and where you want to live than you do now. OK is really quite okay, and if you are not far from OKC you will find some very good medical care.
