You’ve just moved on into a new luxury apartments Bentonville neighborhood. You arranged your furniture and you found a good school for your children. What’s next? Meeting the neighbors, of course!
Here are a few natural and friendly ways to get to know your new neighbors:
- Introduce Yourself
It may be a no brainer, but a lot of people feel self-conscious about introducing themselves. It shouldn’t be awkward. When you meet a new neighbor in the street or at the grocery store, smile and say who you are and where you live. Most of your neighbors are just as eager as you to meet you, but equally wary of making the first step.
- Ask for Local Tips
Where is the best place to get fresh bread? Where should you take your car to be serviced? What is the nearest farmers’ market? These are legitimate questions to ask your neighbors as a newcomer. And they will love the fact that you rely on their expert local knowledge. A few comments, an anecdote and you’re already on friendly speaking terms with your neighbors.
- Attend Local Community Events
Community events are your best chance to introduce yourself to the entire neighborhood. By showing interest in the life of the community, you show that you want to become a part of it. And your neighbors will be more than happy to welcome you.
