SAN JOSE Real Estate

The largest of Santa Clara County communities, San Jose, was ranked among Money Magazine’s list of most livable cities–common recognition. The dominance of middle-class income levels and attitudes have preserved an enviable quality of life for San Jose residents despite astronomical growth patterns. While San Jose rapidly approaches the million mark in population, it towers as a high-tech giant in the Bay Area with a proven attitude of vitality.
Tract developments dominate the scene, a neighborhood atmosphere that outsiders often label as “land” to the chagrin of loyal residents. What may be lacking in style or innovative architecture is usually off set by lush landscaping and interior decorating. In cultural amenities as well as in high-tech leadership, San Jose shines. It seems that the world-class amenities that were once relegated to San Francisco have ‘found the way’ to San Jose, including professional sports teams, international stars, symphony, opera, light opera, ballet, and repertory theatre.
A good place for growing families, San Jose offers an exceptional children’s discovery museum, lovely parks, and many sports and athletic programs. Creating a more closely knit atmosphere than most large cities manage to provide, San Jose is home to a few welcoming neighborhoods that cater to their own restaurants, theaters, and shops.
