Matthew Conde, resident of Mar Vista in Hunters Creek has found a fun and constructive way to walk his dog “Jax”. Matthew says ” I’ve been walking him around the pond and he loves jumping in the water and picking up plastic bottles in the grass along the waterline. He kept bringing me the different objects that he found so now I have to bring a poop bag and a garbage bag!”. On a typical walk around the pond, Jax picks up between 3- 5 plastic bottles and other objects.
Matthew attends 5th grade at West Creek Elementary where he recently won 1st place in the school spelling bee. He’s an A student and is involved in several other activities like playing on a U-11 competitive soccer team for the Hunters
Creek Soccer Club. Matthew’s parents, who are both listing agents in Hunters Creek said that ” anything Matthew puts his mind to, he does well”. This is why when he came up with the idea of using his dog to help keep the neighborhood clean, they weren’t at all surprised.
“Jax” is a 10-month-old yellow Labrador Retriever who loves jumping in the water and playing fetch as most Labs do. Jax however, is more interested in retrieving plastic bottles and other objects out of the pond than he is in chasing balls. Matthew’s parents say that the 5th grader spends lots of time playing and training with the K9 on a daily basis. [right after he finishes his homework].

Hunters Creek is a great place to raise a family. As a matter of fact, in 2011, the writers at both “CNN/Money” as well as “Money” magazine were soo impressed with Hunters Creek as a neighborhood that they both ranked it the 21st best place to live in the whole US on their top 100 list.
The criteria that was used to make this determination included housing, education, financial, quality of life, weather data and also leisure and culture.
Because I live and work in Hunters Creek, I can tell you first hand that Hunters Creek absolutely backs up all the hype and in my opinion, it should be even higher on that list of the best places to live in the US. I’ve always found it impressive how the planners were able to fit so many great things into one neighborhood. From the A schools to the parks and nearby shopping all nestled in untouched conservation areas that are home to just about every species of Florida wild life.
Housing in Hunters Creek
Because of my profession as an Orlando real estate Broker, I’m very familiar with the Hunters Creek real estate market. Even through the housing market of 2007, Hunters Creek didn’t suffer as much as some other less desirable Orlando neighborhoods. And having sold hundreds of Hunters Creek homes throughout the years, I can tell you that whenever I get a listing in the Hunters Creek area it won’t last for very long. Hunters Creek property values are almost back where they were back in 2006 mainly because it seems that everyone wants to live here… I can’t say that I blame them.
