A friend of mine and I were having a discussion which led into how lovely Alamo Heights houses are and also how expensive the absolute gorgeous ones there are... which made us joke that we'd like to go up and knock on the door just to ask, "What on earth do you do for a living in order to afford this house?" LOL
So it got me truly thinking- what are the type of jobs people have that live in those Alamo Heights houses?

Houses like this:
Century 21 United-Action - San Antonio Area Real Estate (http://www.century21-action.com/details.php?mlsid=54-721273&type=1&area=78209 - broken link)

Anyone live in this area willing to inform? I know it's a stupid question... but I AM curious...

I expect some of those people inherited money. Other professions might be college professors, doctors, lawyers, banking execs...

I wonder who that realtor is? I bet he/she is happy to have the extra advertising!

Pretty house, though!

I know where corrupt government officials, drug kingpins and mafiosos live. But, for a friend, are the porn stars female and, if yes, where do they live? This is for a friend , you understand.

The people that I know who live in AH are doctors. Though, they don't live in the huge houses, they live in the smaller ones.

Many of the older "estate" homes in Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos Park have been handed down to the next generation of old SA families. In college I did some intern work for an attorney who lived on Elizabeth in Terrell Hills. Certainly he did well professionally, but both he and his stay-at-home wife were from old-time SA families and most of their $ was inherited, as was the palace... I mean, house. I would imagine that much of the non-inherited money in AH/TH/OP comes from professions like medicine, entrepreneurship, law, real estate/development, etc.
