I have a client who lives off of Boulevard between Ralph McGill and North Avenue. She moved into a beautiful home (new construction) and within a week was broken into. She now has an alarm, has been there 1 month and not yet another break in. It's too bad really because surrounding that area are so many great neighborhoods, some of which are affluent and homeowners leave furniture out on their patios with no incident. The area is most certainly taking a turn for the better, the question is, how far is it into the turn? My client is a single woman who's lives alone so, it's safe to say she doesn't feel threatened or she would move.
