If a move to San Antonio is in your future, you may be wondering which area of the city is best to put down roots. After all, San Antonio is a huge city – home to 1.5 million people. Why not try Alamo Heights? This premier neighborhood is located in central San Antonio, showcasing the best in local eateries, close access to downtown, and a top-rated public school system.

Here are four reasons to move to Alamo Heights in 2019.

1.     Shopping 

While The Quarry and Lincoln Heights shopping centers are certainly a great part of this city, there is far more on offer to residents and visitors of Alamo Heights. From couture boutiques and beadwork shops to quirky specialty shops and designer showrooms, Broadway (the city’s main road) offers a host of exclusive shopping experiences. You’ll also love the upscale grocery store called Central Market located, well, centrally!

2.     Character and Charm 

One great thing about Alamo Heights is that it has unique neighborhoods and homes. You won’t find standard tract housing here, where every house is a cookie cutter version of the next. Many of the homes, in fact, were built in the early 20th century, on quaint tree-lined streets with houses that vary greatly in price, style and features. You’ll find anything from small, charming cottages to large, luxurious manors. Many of San Antonio’s wealthiest residents live in Alamo Heights.

3.     Schools 

Alamo Heights earns high marks in terms of its top-notch school districts. People with kids pay dearly to live within Alamo Heights ISD district lines. In fact, the city boasts a college-bound student rate of 95 percent and has been the recipient of many awards in terms of its students’ academic and athletic achievements. If you have a family, no matter how old your kids are, you’ll want to take a close look at Alamo Heights.

4.     Location, Location, Location

The best part of it is, Alamo Heights is only 4.5 miles from downtown San Antonio, easily accessible to all major highways. The appeal of this central location is a huge selling point for home buyers of all ages. Many professionals choose to commute into the city from one of the surrounding suburbs because the cost of living right in downtown San Antonio is prohibitive.

Alamo Heights is also very close to the airport, as well as many museums, entertainment venues, business centers, and Fort Sam Houston.

They assisted in packing my apartment and moving it, quick and efficient. Great people to talk to and to be around. We worked with both Jon and John, they tackled the hard situation of moving in Texas heat and no ac in our apartment with no complaints and got everything moved over to out new place faster than I expected. Definitely will be using their services again in the future!

Julian and John were great. They took very good care of my belongings and completed my moved within the amount of time I had estimated. They drove safely to the destination and were very polite, answering almost everything with "sir." That was just the move. I had a major family medical emergency near Austin the Sunday before my move and Guillermo was compassionate and helpful in adjusting my move to the times that suited me. After 4 days of exceptional stress, I had a moment of frustration and abrasively responded to something Guillermo said and he didn't flinch. I'm pretty OCD about my stuff but it looks to have all made it without damage to anything. 10/10 Excellent work
