Thank you so much people for some insightful comments. I appreciate some of you voicing concerns about the city but I absolutely have to move to El Dorado per my employer's policy, no options there. I am considering the below mentioned three properties to rent an apartment at. Would much any insight on which one would be better in terms of neighborhood, security, how well maintained are the apartments etc.

1. Briarwood Aparments (25 E 19th St H7, El Dorado, Arkansas 71730)
2. The Vineyards at El Dorado (550 Beverly Dr, El Dorado, AR 71730)
3. Oakhurst Aparments (206 Oakhurst Blvd #200, El Dorado, AR 71730)

Any other good apartments in/around El Dorado that you might want o suggest?

Thanks,
A

NO Oakhurst. Ghetto. Full of welfare blacks and poor white trash.

I am a former resident who moved away because of all the blacks and no opportunities.

So I am a business professional and just got this job offer for a company in El Dorado and I will be relocating within the next month. I am from Houston and have never been to El Dorado before so I have no idea which neighborhoods are safe and nice, and which ones should I keep out from. I am looking to rent a 2BR apartment. It would be a huge help if people here could please advice me on potential properties I should be looking at and some reliable landlords I could speak with
Thanks,

All the people on here that told you to stay where you are are spot on. The pay to house prices may seem good to you but your children will not get quality education, our stores, restaurants, and many other businesses rarely have a well stocked store and I have never seen hamburger place run out of hamburgers when there are two here who in a pinch could borrow. Chicken places run out of chicken. Fast food places are not ready for breakfast or lunch runs so you wait awhile. Even mail is sketchy, never know whose you will get and how sensitive it will be. Have had important case sensitive mail brought to me by many neighbors and have taken them theirs. There seems to be a lacadasial attitude here across the board. It is lovely area, but just too many don't care about their homes, yards, jobs, or anything else that is important to good life. I have even heard our beautiful golf course has gone to waste, most of this from poor management. If you have to relocate to this area you might want to consider moving abt 30 miles in two different directions as in Magnolia or Camden the restaurants serve better food, stores are clean and stocked, town is cleaner, and workers don't act so upset about having to work. We go out of town for most of our needs as it is too frustrating to try to shop here. I just will not pay extra for attitude.

I agree Magnolia is nice but Camden is a crap hole compared to El Dorado!

I'm sorry to hear that your company is requiring you to move to this dark hole that is El Dorado. I moved here for my company years ago and got stuck, but I'm working hard to get out now. In it's day, El Dorado was a wonderful town with so much to offer. Now it is a crime ridden ghetto that has no chance of moving forward.

There are no opportunities for young people and without something to occupy them, kids will turn to the dark side. That's just a fact. So, if you have kids, please keep a close eye on them and the friends they choose.

If you can, please choose Briarwood Apts. They are one of the only decent apartment complexes left in this town, and I'm afraid that is slowly changing. Good luck on the move and I hope that you have better luck adapting to this town that most people who relocate here.

Andy - I no longer live in Eldo, but did for quite awhile.
Like you, I moved from out of state for the job opportunity.
The apartments at Calion and 19th St. are very good. They are well-maintained, the neighbors are peaceful, and the management is professional. I lived there for three years before I left town.
You don't mention what your family situation is, but it's best if you are married with no children. The school system is substandard and there is no good private alternative even if you want to send them to private school.
If you are single, you will get a lot of interest from the local women, but you won't be impressed by them (see comment about poor education above.).
I've lived all over the south, but never encountered the kind of racism that exists in Eldo. Things have changed a little over the years, but it's still true that all the rich people in town are white, and the vast majority of the black people are poor. And a lot of the folks in town are just fine with that. Be prepared to feel like you've moved backwards in time 30-40 years.
Watch out for the grapevine. People will make it a point to find out everything they can about you, and whatever they can't find out they will just make up. When I first moved to Eldo, I walked past a woman on the square who was a complete stranger to me. She stopped me to talk, and proceeded to tell me about my life with eerie accuracy. And this was after just one week in town.
No matter what religion or non-religion you are, have a ready answer for this question: Have you found a church home yet? So many folks will ask you this, and if you don't have an answer, the next thing you'll hear is an invitation to attend their church. After you've heard this 40 or 50 times, you'll get sick of it. Easier to just have your answer ready.
If you're in a job that gets recruited from out of state, then you probably make more money than 80% of the people in the city. That's good from the standpoint of affording to live, but don't be surprised when people talk about your money. I even had a bank teller look at my bank deposit on payday and show it to the teller sitting next to her. Really?
I spent a total of nine years in Eldo, and was glad to get my life back when I moved away. The best way to survive the town is to concentrate on your job and do it well. And if your job entails some out-of-town travel, all the better.
Good luck, Andy.

If you look at the thread a few posters point out several legitimate problems with this town, such as the fact that its crime rate is over TWICE the national average. Facts like these are readily available to anyone willing to look. We're also a mega drug town.
Best thing you could do is beg not to be relocated, or come here, make the best of it, then get the hell out asap.
BTW, people here love to gossip and talk shit about everyone. Its part of the small town way. Just look all over this shit site and you'll see it for yourself.
Really, what the hell have you done for this town except post anonymous gripes? You're part of the problem.

Put ElDo down if ya wana. Got alot in the way of business opportunities. If you a meth cook that can halfway make some decent shit you got it going on. tear down the crack houses are you kidding? That's what keeps the economy going. Awesome town in my opinion. Glad to know you got a job here. Maybe that's how to get one live out of town good to know.
