I looked for luxury apartments in Stone Oak due to finding a position with a school district in San Antonio. I recently graduated with a master’s degree in education and wanted to leave my current position here in a small town in Illinois. I have nothing against living here, and I love my students, but I really felt the need to spread my wings a bit. Also, this town really couldn’t offer a substantial increase in my salary that a master’s degree typically brings to a teacher with lots of experience. Really it was just time to move on to greener pastures.
I looked at moving to Texas because of their booming economy and good weather. I homed in on San Antonio because I’d actually lived there for a couple of years as a child and had a least a passing familiarity with the area. I looked for an apartment complex online that could fit my needs and most importantly, my budget. Imagine my surprise when I found a great place in the really ritzy Stone Oak area. When I was there as a kid it was already known as a well off area, but apparently it’s gotten more so since I left.
I drove down to look at the apartment and was really impressed with the various floor plans available. The rent was amazing, much lower than what you would expect in a place known for gated communities. It didn’t take much to get me to sign on the dotted line, and even better is the fact that it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump away from my job. I’m thinking I might even be able to ride my bike to work before the really hot summer temperatures kick in. I can’t wait to move down and start working with my new group of kids!
