I will be working at 8940 Fourwinds Drive, 5th Floor, San Antonio, Tx 78239 .

I am 42, with a wife and child. Our budget is around 200k-250k. I am concerned about the School district where I will live. I am also concerned about family living and low crime. Close shopping and good eats are a plus and I don't want to have to spend an hour in traffic. I was looking at:

Hollywood Park
Oak Haven Heights
North Central Thousand Oaks

and anything in that area.

Any advice?

You can just squeak into northwood at that price. I would take that 1000x over the neighborhoods you have listed.

Those are just fine choices. I have a friend that works at Rackspace and lives in Knollcreek. He says great things about that area. Also look into the Castle Hills area. You'd take 410 all the way there.

If you want a newer home in a family friendly environment, look into Schertz and Cibolo. The drive is a bit longer than some of the other areas mentioned, but the area has good schools and plenty of new retail and restaurants (predominantly chains). There are plenty of homes in your price range.

If it were me, I would also look at New Braunfels but you may find the commute to be too much to deal with.

Best wishes in your search and move!

I had a look at NORTH Castle Hills, very cool place. Right next to a huge woodland park. Low Crime too.

We are turning our attention from North Central/281 area to Ciobolo/Schertz...my husband will be working at FSH. What are your thoughts on Ciobolo and the SCUISD and commute to FSH from there?

I just left San Antonio about a year ago. I was very much your same demographic. We lived in the Redlands area - there are several different Redlands subdivisions, almost all in your price range. They are mostly between Thousand Oaks and 1604 off Jones Maltsberger.

The schools are some of the best in town and crime is pretty low. It is also pretty easy to get to both 1604 and 281 which is a bonus. There are plenty of great restaurants and plenty of shopping a stones throw away. Not only that but the closest HEB is a pretty nice one.

Fall Creek is another nice subdivision in that area. I think you would be hard pressed to find a better part of town personally.

Ciobolo is a nice area and the new subdivisions there are nice. There is plenty of shopping and plenty of nice restaurants in the area. With that said, you are going to hate your commute.
