I had never been to Santa Fe before, but that did not stop me from accepting a job offer there. I knew that if I did not like it, all I had to do was stick it out for a couple of years, then I could move anywhere else I wanted to in the country, since this was just a temporary job offer. The pay was too good to refuse the offer though, which is why I started looking at Santa Fe apartments as soon as I accepted the position.
Even without knowing the area that well, I knew that I had two requirements for living there. The first is that it must be a safe area. I have lived in areas where the crime stats are pretty scary, and I refuse to ever do that again. The second is that it has to be as close to my work as possible. I don’t like driving or sitting in traffic, so I wanted as short of a commute as possible. After looking for just a few minutes, I was able to find an apartment complex that fulfilled both of those requirements!
Called Las Palomas, these apartments are not only nice but very affordable too. I was just looking for a one bedroom unit until I saw the prices. That is when I decided a two bedroom would be better, because I could use the smaller bedroom as a home office. I had no idea how often I would bring work home, but I knew that I could afford to contain all of that in just one room at the prices I saw. There were several available, so I wasted no time in submitting an application. They also wasted no time in telling me when I could move in. Their efficiency was just the first step in our relationship, and it remains a good one to this day. By the way, I love this area too, and I am seriously considering making it my home for as long as I can!
