Formerly the base of the gold rush in 1849, San Francisco remains one of the top global cities across the board as it quickly became the largest and most important population, commercial, naval, and financial center in the American West. From finance, medicine and healthcare, technology, and more, the eclectic and wealthy peninsula is a prime hub of culture, entertainment, and luxury living. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the San Francisco Bay on the north and east, the city spans roughly seven square miles and is home to a diverse and ever-growing population.
With its big city feel (and aesthetic), San Francisco is rich in waterfront areas, open spaces, parks, gardens, and beaches. There is no shortage of entertainment with its countless art museums, music venues, and theatres, including their highly acclaimed Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Opera, and the San Francisco Ballet.
Driven by its close proximity to Silicon Valley, there is a high demand for housing. The massive city is divided into ten major real estate districts including the Presidio, Diamond Heights, Ashbury Hights, Castro, Haight Ashbury, Twin Peaks, Noe Valley, Alamo Square, and Downtown.
With so much to explore, all of California is at your fingertips. Whether looking for a weekend getaway to the wine country of Napa and Sonoma Counties to the north, or longer vacations at Lake Tahoe at the east, or day trips to Monterey and Carmel to the south. Just a short ferry ride across the San Francisco Bay, the tight-knit and affluent hamlet of Tiburon was named after the leopard sharks that swim along its pristine coast. Ten miles north of Sausalito, the scenic peninsula is one of the crown jewels of Marin County.
