Hi Folks.
As San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the U.S., it has a location to suite nearly any person's or family's needs. Some questions you will need to answer so that your Realtor of choice can help you are:
What is your daily and weekend lifestyle like? eg- are you still working or retired?
Do you want to be close to a lake, Church, medical area?
Do you have a need to be near a school?
What is your price range?
Scope of home (how many rooms, etc.)
Do you prefer new construction or pre-owned?
Do you want to walk to night life, restaurants or is that not important?
Naturally there is additional information needed so please see my websites and if I can help, it would be my pleasure.
For new construction, see gvbtx.com
All the best,

Hi Madeline,

That is a tough question for somebody to answer. San Antonio is a big city and you really need to experience it for yourself and answer questions such as... Where will I be working (if you are not retired); What do I like to do? Where are those amenities that appeal to my lifestyle?

I am an Austin based agent but you should find a good agent in San Antonio to work with to help you get questions like that answered. You also should plan on coming into town if you have not already as that is the only way you can decide what is best for you.... after all you are the one who will be living there and you are the best judge if an area will fit your lifestyle.

Best of luck to you!

I hate to answer a question with a queestion but here goes: Is it most important to you to live close to schools? church? work? great places to go out to dinner? live music venues? parks and trails?

There are fantastic areas for all these priorities and I am happy to offer relocation information and moving discounts!

Dear Madeline,

It all depends on your budget, work, if you prefer suburban or urban lifestyle, whether you have kids, need a large yard or rather a garden home etc. I would need a lot more information from you before I could tell you what the best area would be for YOU to live. Contact an outstanding agent, like me, to help you guide in the right direction and get the ball rolling.

I would recommend Stone Oak or surrounding areas of 281/1604, this community is still flourishing to this day, and it is now known for its wealth and top schools. Stone Oak San Antonio boasts many shopping areas and business parks, including the Village at Stone Oak, Rolling Oaks Mall, The Shops at La Cantera, The Rim and North-woods. The Shops at La Cantera include many high-end retailers, such as Dillard's, Neiman Marcus and Macy’s. There is a wide variety of Stone Oak real estate for every budget.
Good Luck,

Ok... I deal with TONS of relocations... and most folks will usually look within 10 miles of where they will be working...

In general.. the majority of folks seem to focus on the Northside of San Antonio. It really depends on your price range and what you are looking for...

So.. let's make your life nice and easy.... send me an e-mail real quick with what you are looking for.. Beds / Baths, Square Footage, Age of home, and your Max Price Range... I'll e-mail you a bunch of homes to check out that fit. That's probably the best way to get an idea of what area you will like the most.
