My husband is looking at a position in the Glendale area. We looked up the area and it seems the homes for sale are limited there. We are willing to look outside the area, but within 20 minutes of Glendale would be great for him.
If anyone has any suggestions this is what we are looking for:

New construction homes or within 5-10 years old, price to 500K.
Good public middle/high school for our daughter.
Low Crime.
Shopping/restaurants within a reasonable distance, not in the middle of nowhere
Within reasonable distance to Univ./Law School.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I would say try Bayside, Whitefish Bay, Foxpoint or Shorewood area. These are both good areas with good school systems and close to shopping.

Grafton, Cedarburg & Mequon are great areas, within 10-15 minutes from Glendale. Lots of newer homes, great school districts. Fox Point, Whitefish Bay have beautiful homes but the majority are older homes, not new.

I would definitely check out Mequon, and River Hills is also a possibility. River Hills borders Glendale to the north and west, and Mequon is north of River Hills. Both are great areas with high quality school districts. River Hills has some new construction that might be in your price range, but not a lot. You'll probably find a greater variety of new construction in Mequon. Mequon covers a lot of area, but all is within a relatively close distance to Glendale.

As for distance to higher education, River Hills and Glendale are close to Cardinal Stritch University (Glendale) & Concordia University (Wisconsin). The only law school in the Milwaukee area is Marquette, which is downtown and not too far away.
