back again for some more specific advice- if you would need to go into the office maybe 2-3 days a week and worked in either far west side area or northwest side - both inside 1604 (specifically looking at Wells Fargo and USAA corporate campuses), which neighborhoods or bonus points for specific communities would fit the bill with the following considerations?

Budget can go higher, but would prefer under $525 unless the list below makes this not feasible
- low crime, relatively safe
- bigger lots with privacy or more spacing between houses (7,500sqft+)
-community features such as walking paths, tennis courts, fitness center etc (typical in newer subdivisions)
- gated/ limited access to community
- green belt lots preferred
- 15 min to decent restaurants/shopping
- newer build
- 30 min to either far westside or northwest side
- friendly neighbors
- more conservative leaning or at least a "live and let live" mentality.
- generally higher household income, 100k+
Based on those specifications, recommend looking at The Village Green, and the various neighborhoods in Fair Oaks Ranch. Those would tick most boxes.

Shavano Park if you want to be closer to the city (Castle Hills would work too)

Helotes or maybe Fair Oaks Ranch/Leon Springs/Boerne if you want to be further out. Maybe Castroville but it isn't quite as upper middle class.

I think being out near Fair Oaks would be a horrible commute to Wells Fargo, but that’s hurt me. USAA it would be a pain, but doable.

The commute from FOR to the city is a breeze since the I-10 construction added 2 additional lanes. I-10 from Ralph Fair Rd. to 1604 is now 4 lanes wide, 3 general purpose, and 1 HOV lane in each direction. There are no more backups or slowdowns. Smooth sailing, no matter what time of day.

I’ve driven on those new lanes. I still think it would be a pain, but I’m able to walk to work right now, so any commute is unbearable to me.

My current commute consists of walking all the way from the bedroom, to the kitchen, to the home office. Distance of under 60 feet, and commute time of under 1 minute, I get it. There is no longer any congestion on I-10 EB, or WB during rush hour, which is massive change just over a year ago.

Will be even better when they get the next leg of the project completed from Ralph Fair, to SH 46 in Boerne. They're currently doing the same thing they did first from Dominion Drive to Fair Oaks Pkwy which includes converting the frontage roads to one way traffic, adding frontage roads where none previously existed, and relocating, straightening, and lengthening exit and entrance ramps. Once that's complete, the plan is to extend the four lane cross section on I-10 to SH 46 from the current terminus just past Ralph Fair Rd.
