I am relocating from Boston to Nashville and had spent hours looking for apartments on different websites. All of the apartment complexes had really nice professional photos, but then I would find a review website where tenants would post real photos and the complexes were trashed. This made me uneasy about finding an apartment in an unfamiliar city from 1300 miles away. Then enter Kristen. I was referred to this service by Vanderbilt's relocation center and thought it was just going to be another site with openings at different complexes. Instead I signed up and the same day Kristen called my cell phone and asked me real, logical questions about what I was looking for. We talked budget, requirements (balcony, laundry, big kitchen, pool, etc) and distance from work(I told her where I'd be working and she told me which areas of Nashville would be within a 20-30 minute drive during commuting hours). She sent me a list of about 10 complexes that fit my needs in different areas around Nashville. She also explained each area in great detail (example: x neighborhood is close to downtown with restaurant to walk to. Y neighborhood is in an industrial part of town with not much around it. ) for each suggested complex, Kristen added her own opinion on each place (example: this place is great, but the washing and dryer are in the kitchen.  Or, this place has tons of storage and the nicest pools) Based of her recommendations, i ruled a few out and we worked from a list of 6 complexes. My fiancé had moved down to Nashville to start work, but didn't have a car. Kristen went and picked him up and brought him to each complex to check them out. In the end, we picked a lovely place to call home that we will move into next week. Kristen was a rockstar throughout the process, and without her, who knows where we would be!
