I am working with a doctor from NYC and I am from LA myself so we get along great and I have a keen sense of what he is looking for.
With Kids, like myself, I have to think that school districts are a key factor so there are three areas that come to mind right away.
I suggest you contact me directly so I can find out a few missing details and then I will definitely know where to put you from several choices in the north side of town.
If you need referrals, recommendations, I can give those to you without hesitation.
I look forward to serving you.

In regards to places to live, I would think you should start with finding something close to where you work so you can have more time to spend with the family. There are good areas in many different parts of the city. If you want to buy, you will find that the prices are extraordinarily low. If you want the more urban feel there are loft style places to live downtown.
As far as schools are concerned, we are a "young" city and it seems that there is school almost within 8 blocks of wherever you might find houses.
Call or email me so I can help you make San Antonio feel like home even before you move here. I have a few videos about San Antonio on my website at http://www.MySanAntonioHome.net

The best way to pull off a successful location of the best home to fit what you are looking for... is to evaluate each home, take a look at the area it is in, and determine if it fits your wants and needs, and makes you feel like it's home.
You will want to look at things like commute to work... You may have the perfect home, but if you have to drive 2 hours to work every day, it may not be so great..
I can make this a lot easier for you... shoot me a text, send me an e-mail, or give me a quick call. I'll email you all of the homes that fit what you are looking for, help you to narrow the scope, and we can look a stats, surroundings, etc.

North of 1604 is all new construction, whereas "inside the loop" classifies neighborhoods like Alamo Heights, Monte Vista, Olmos Park, Tobin Hill, and King William. Here you will find older, or historical- quality architecture, loads of trees, inviting street-scape, and tons of exciting things happening as the urban area is quite "switched on.".
And too, "Inside the loop," there is ample supply of art and culture, foodie-fun, friendly, lively, city, re-development, urban action, close to downtown and the evolving riverwalk.. I would think being from the city- you would gravitate to these areas?
If you want to do something COMPLETELY different and go charming, quaint, "country," look at New Braunfels or Boerne. They still offer proximity to a variety of locales of all genres... Certainly proximity to any commutes may help you to narrow it down. There are a ton of great things happening all over the city, and it is the hill country-beautiful in many areas.
Feel free to contact me directly if you would like anymore feedback, or if I can help in the transition, (a big one :- ), in any way.
You can get into a school at any home price range. If your teens are middle schoolers, the top schools are in the Stone Oak area and in Brookhollow area. The top high schools are mostly north of 1604, but living there will mean some traffic.
You should consider your commute, Buy a home near one of the many interstates (San Antonio is among the top 3 in Interstate miles per capita and getting around is pretty easy for a city of 1.5 million).
Feel free to e-mail if you have any questions about the city. If we connect and you would like me to help you with your home search, we can do that too.
If you will let me know the monthly payment your are looking to have, I will find you the best neighborhood and home for you. Also, need to know your whats and must haves in a home.
Call me to discuss.
Thanks, Roland , Broker/Owner.
Well, your question is rather broad. There are lots of wonderful areas in the greater San Antonio TX area to look into. It would depend on what is important to you, for example, proximity to work or schools, both...price range and etc :).
That's why it's important to get with a local RealtorÂ® who can help you to narrow down exactly where you want to be and what type of home you want.
I would be happy to help you if you like.
