DEFINE THE NORTHSIDE IN YOUR OWN WORDS
The Northside of San Antonio is a large and vastly growing area of our city with many smaller and unique neighborhoods like Stone Oak that allow San Antonio to keep that small-town, close knit community feel.
WHY IS THE NORTHSIDE YOUR FAVORITE AREA?
My family and I live in the Stone Oak area. We absolutely love the community, our church (Lifehouse Church on Wilderness Oak), and NorthEast ISD schools are top rated.
WHAT MAKES THE NORTHSIDE SO SPECIAL?
The landscape of Northside San Antonio is so beautiful with hills, parks, and trails tucked seemingly around every corner. The area is also accessible to all our family's activities, restaurants, medical facilities, and entertainment.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO LIVE ON THE NORTHSIDE?
The community with so much to offer all ages. Three large swimming pools, a lazy river, splash zone for kids, soccer field, two playgrounds, basketball, six miles of bike and hiking trails in a hill country setting. Plus there are two PGA golf courses along with a world-class resort at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort and Spa. The schools are community-centered. It feels like a one-school town, with the location of Cibolo Green, the close proximity to Tex Hill Middle School, and of course CT Johnson High School sits on top of the hill, which can’t be missed from most anywhere in our neighborhood.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NORTHSIDE RESTAURANT?
There are so many great dining experiences on the Northside of San Antonio, but my all-time favorite pick goes to the Tex-Mex giant, Pappasitos!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NORTHSIDE MENU ITEM?
My favorite menu item is the steak fajitas at Pappasitos with a side of bacon wrapped Shrimp Brochette (cue salivary glands)!
WHAT IS A GREAT NORTHSIDE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE?
One of our family's favorite outdoor activities is to go to Fiesta Texas. Or, if we want a quiet outdoor adventure, the trails at Panther Springs Park, near the Parman Library, is a great nearby option.
WHAT IS A NORTHSIDE EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED?
My wife and I look forward to attending The Taste of Northside, an annual Fiesta event benefitting the Brighton Center- a provider of developmental and educational services for children in San Antonio. We also love attending the Fourth of July celebration at The Club of Sonterra.
WHAT IS A NORTHSIDE HIDDEN GEM?
The Club of Sonterra is a great hidden gem in the Stone Oak area with activities for all ages and annual events that allow us to make great memories with our family. The cost of membership and the services they offer is actually very reasonable and more affordable than most people presume about a golf and country club.
WHAT'S YOUR SOURCE OF PASSION FOR REAL ESTATE?
I love people and building relationships. Buying or selling real estate can be an emotional process and I love the art of the deal, getting my clients the best price and terms at closing.
