Our DREAM Process

The Smart Way to Find Fort Worth Apartments

Hunting apartments in Ft. Worth can be a beating, so why not let Smart City do the heavy lifting for you? At Smart City, we employ a 5-step DREAM process to build a totally unique and customized apartment search just for you, so you’ll get exactly what you’re looking for and feel totally confident on move-in day.


The first thing we’ll do is pair you up with your own personal agent, a licensed real estate agent who knows the Fort Worth rental market inside and out. Your agent will chat with you and ask you some questions to figure out what, in your mind, makes a home a home.

“My agent listened to all of my needs and wants but somehow still knew the things I didn’t even know to ask about. They dig deep and know what I don’t know.”

Real Market Knowledge

Based on your wants and needs, your agent will use our own real market research, along with his or her personal insights and experience, to build a list of Fort Worth apartments that meet your criteria. Rather than simply auto-generating a list like other apartment locators in Fort Worth, we’ll provide you with a personalized list of potential rental properties.

“My agent found an awesome complex that had just been built within a few minutes of my job. I had no idea it even existed!”

Explore Options

At this point, your agent will go through the list with you and solicit your feedback. By the time the two of you are done, every apartment on your shortlist should be one that checks all your boxes.

“My agent really keyed into the features I wanted in a new apartment. I couldn’t tell you how many times I changed my priorities, but she rolled with it and made sure I got what I wanted while staying in my budget!”

Active Touring

Your agent will now go through your list and set up apartment tours with the properties that you’ve flagged as your favorites. This is all at your convenience and based around your schedule, of course. If walk-in viewings aren’t feasible, your agent should be able to set up video tours with most apartment complexes.

“My agent listened to all of my needs and wants but somehow still knew the things I didn’t even know to ask about. They dig deep and know what I know I don’t know.”


Once you decide on an apartment, your agent will stick with you through the application and approval process to make sure everything goes smoothly. And when it’s time for the move, we can even help out with tasks like transferring your utilities.

“I just moved into my apartment and despite it being a month since we last spoke, my agent still reached out to check on how I was doing on move-in day!”
