Inspired by close proximity to I-35, Loop 1604, and the local gently-rolling hills, Live Oak
founders believed they had found the perfect location for a family-oriented community…and it turns out they were right. With a small-but-not-too-small population of 13,131, Live Oak remains a “small town” on the cusp of the big city.
Originally home to a rich farming and ranching tradition, Live Oak retains a legacy of tradition. Though new developments and residential neighborhoods have caused this community to evolve from rolling farmland into a cozy urban paradise, the small-town vibes remain. Nearly half of Live Oak residents have lived in the community for over 10 years. Still, nearby, multiple shopping centers, a major hospital and medical complexes, college campuses, and financial resources ensure that Live Oak is anything but outdated.
Geographically only about 15 miles northeast of downtown San Antonio, Live Oak also offers a short commute to military families from Randolph Air Force Base. Area amenities and perks include City Park, Cowboys Dance Hall, Live Oak Community Pool, Midnight Rodeo Dance Hall, Olympia Hills Golf Course, Retama Park, Rolling Oaks Golf Course, The Forum at Olympia Parkway, and more.
Adding to the appeal of Converse are excellent area schools, anchored by the Judson Independent School District. Serving grades pre-k through 12th grade, the district serves over 22,000 students across 32 schools. Students in Live Oak are generally zoned to
Franz Elementary School and Crestview Elementary School, Kitty Hawk Middle School, and Judson Early College Academy. Northeast Lakeview College, a local community college is the newest campus of Alamo Community College.
With a variety of home types and styles, neighborhoods can differ significantly in age, style, features, and price. Generally, homes stay within $100,000-$250,000, and the median listing price stays around $150,000. Price per square foot rests around $84.
