My parents live 400 miles away from me and my family. We only get to see them three or four times a year. It’s so difficult for us to travel since my husband and I both work and our two children are in school. We just never seem to have the time. Last night, my mother called and told me they put their house on the market and are moving to Charlotte. They’re coming here next week to start looking for apartments in South Charlotte NC. I’m so excited to have them live so close to me and for them to be able to spend a lot of time with their grandkids.
I picked them up from the airport the following Wednesday and took them back to my house. After we had dinner we sat down and discussed what they were looking for in an apartment. So we made a list of their needs and wants. After the list was done we started our research on the computer. We found a few that we thought might be a good fit for them and made plans to visit each property the next morning.
My mother was very impressed with how immaculate the grounds were at the first community we visited. They were equally impressed with the amenities available for everybody that lived there. Being a car buff, my father really liked the covered parking area that was accessible by elevators from every floor. The apartment we were shown was absolutely exquisite with hardwood floors, crown molding and custom trim work, nine-foot ceilings, modern kitchen appliances, a walk-in laundry room with extra storage, and a huge walk-in closet with custom designed organizing in the master bedroom. They were already planning what furniture was going to go where. Needless to say, there was no need to look elsewhere because they had just found their new home.
