When I got promoted at work, I suddenly had a lot more money and prestige.
- I bought a brand new car that reflected my new salary and I moved to the city.
I was a country girl in the city and I knew my apartment had to reflect my status. I didn’t want any clients to think they were dealing with a hick from middle america. I hired someone to help me look for a new apartment. I didn’t have a lot of time on my hands, but I had a list of items that needed to be in the apartment. I gave the list of items to my realtor and she started looking for a condo in my price range. She looked for several days and then she gave me a list of the properties. We went to look at the properties on Saturday, after I was finished with a morning meeting with a client. The realtor and I went to five different properties on that day, but I was absolutely impressed with the first condo. The contemporary condo was exactly what I wanted. It was filled with sleek and modern furniture that was designed with elegance in mind. The contemporary condo checked off all of the boxes on my list and I was ready to sign the lease as soon as I saw the master bedroom. It had a huge garden tub and a separate shower. I looked at all of the condos that the realtor had on her list, but I ultimately decided to sign a lease on the first property.
