Back at the Ranch

The Wiseman Family

Chris and Jamie Wiseman have been Cordillera Ranch residents for seven months. Chris is a Project Manager with Marathon Petroleum and Jamie is a Physician specializing in Family Medicine and Functional Medicine. They moved here from Kenai, Alaska with their children Reagan who is 7, Brayden who is 5 and Colten who is 4. 

Why did you choose to live in Cordillera Ranch?

Both of us grew up in the San Antonio area and always had a love for the Texas Hill Country. We have lived in many places, initially due to Jamie’s career path in medicine and then Chris’ work in the oil and gas industry. Most recently we lived in Sterling, Alaska along the beautiful Kenai River. We love being outdoors as a family. Chris loves to fish; Jamie enjoys hunting; our three kids love to be outdoors, whether hiking, swimming or having fun at the lake. Our youngest would be strapped to us starting at six months of age as we hiked glaciers in Alaska. We ultimately wanted to return to the great state of Texas and be closer to family but have the serenity and peacefulness that embodied the great outdoors. We wanted land, views and a sense of community but not quite the isolation that we experienced in Alaska. We knew the schools in Boerne were fantastic and kept finding ourselves coming back to Cordillera Ranch as it checked off our wish list items as well as having all the activities and amenities for us as a family, as a couple and each of us individually.

What do you and your children enjoy the most on the Ranch?

We love absolutely everything about Cordillera Ranch. Chris gets to enjoy golfing on the weekends when he returns from his frequent work trips. Jamie has even started to take a couple golf lessons and goes out with Chris to the range to get more practice. Better yet, our two eldest have expressed interest in golf and Brayden is frequently at the range or on the course with Chris practicing and observing. We love being able to come back on Friday evenings in the summer and head to the Club to enjoy dinner outside after the kids are done with soccer practice. The kids absolutely cannot get enough of the Kid’s Club, and the staff there has been amazing to all three kids. We love if we need a date night, we don’t have to travel far and there is the Kid’s Club for the kids. We have enjoyed the family-oriented activities such as the Halloween Bash and Breakfast with Santa. We have enjoyed being Cellar Club members and Jeffrey always has great suggestions for us.

Overall, Cordillera Ranch offers many options for our family at our leisure and we are getting to meet new neighbors and friends on a regular basis despite the craziness of having three young kids in school, extracurricular activities and our work schedules. It has been a blessing on many levels that we are truly appreciative and grateful for.

The Norcross Family

Ryan and Jessica Norcross are Cordillera Ranch residents since summer, 2019. They moved here from Fresno, California with their children Emma who is 7 and Olivia who is 5. Ryan is the Vice President of Robb Ross Foods and Jessica is a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Why did you choose to live in Cordillera Ranch?

It’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen! When we started talking about leaving California, our good family friends suggested we check out Cordillera Ranch. We looked at other areas in Boerne and quickly realized this was where we wanted to be. The minute we walked into the dining room and saw the gorgeous view outside, we knew this place was special. It’s like this super-secret club that we can’t believe we’ve stumbled onto. The members are all so friendly and have made us feel like we’re amongst life-long friends. There are so many different services and activities available all the time. Whether it’s golf, the gym, kid’s camps, wine dinners, movie nights, spa services or a fun family event the Club has put together, there’s always something fun to do! Everything about Cordillera Ranch is top-notch.

What do you and your children enjoy the most on the Ranch?

We love all of the social events: Wine dinners and gatherings with Jeff Cohen, the family Halloween Party, Christmas on the Ranch, Brunch with Santa, anything we get to do as a family. Our kids LOVE the Kid’s Club and all of the different camps they get to be in with their friends. They’re obsessed with the horse camps, riding lessons with Miss Suzy and anything that gets them out to the stables.

The West Family

Jason and Jennifer West and their children, Connor, age 14, Sawyer, age 12 and Walker, age 9, have been Cordillera Ranch residents for seven months. They moved from Argyle, Texas, just north of Fort Worth. Jason is a Trauma Surgeon at Methodist Stone Oak Hospital. 

Why did you choose to live in Cordillera Ranch?

When we were looking for homes in San Antonio, we restricted our search primarily to Cordillera Ranch. There was no other area that could compare with the amenities, quality of homes and the abundant nature activities available. We chose to live here after visiting friends who had moved here five years previously. When we viewed the sunrise through our back window overlooking the Hill Country, we knew we had made the right decision.

What do you and your children enjoy most on the Ranch?

Jason enjoys the golf course and practice facilities as well as the workout room. Jennifer enjoys the hiking trails and workout facility. Our boys like the shooting range, fishing, hiking in the parks, tennis courts and kayaking. There is no place like Cordillera Ranch. Even after seven months, we still say, “It’s like living on a resort.”
