This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of California Association of REALTORS®. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was born and raised in California and I love it!
I don’t think I’ll ever move away and most people don’t.
I grew up in San Francisco with a view of the ocean outside my window!
I loved to walk to the beach whenever I wanted to get away or go shopping in downtown San Francisco.
The weather never gets colder than 50 degrees most of the year. And it never snows.
We have the best artisan foods, specialty food items, top rated restaurants, a wide array of authentic ethnic cuisine, and fun events that happen every month. For those with food allergies, you’ll find many restaurants who will happily cater to your needs.
I currently live in South San Francisco, minutes away from San Francisco and 10 minutes away from the beach. Everything is close by. I mean everything!
We are 5 minutes away from 2 Costco’s, 3 Targets, drugstores, many different supermarkets including Asian grocery stores (which I can’t live without), a gourmet coffee shop (as well as several Starbucks and Peet’s), and easy access to the freeway.
I love the convenience of being close to everything and having options on where to buy my groceries and things I need.
Many tech startups are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more. Every time I hear about a new tech business and I look up their address, 90% of the time, I find that they’re in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The other thing I appreciate about living in California is the diversity of people. People are more versed in other cultures and food here.
And unlike other states, California is a long state. This means you can drive 8 hours and still be in California.
That also means there’s so much to explore without ever leaving the state. If I wanted to get away, I could drive 2 hours south to beautiful Monterey and Carmel.
I could go 4 hours north to visit scenic Mendocino or 2 hours north to the famous Napa Valley for wine tasting and the best food.
Or I have the option of driving 8+ hours south to go to Los Angeles or visit Disneyland. And I have all these places that I can visit without ever crossing the state border.
When we had to move 3 years ago to a city 45 minutes east of San Francisco, we used a REALTOR®. And I’m so glad we did because she found us a place very quickly that fit our budget, was in a nice neighborhood, and across the street from a popular strip mall, which made grocery shopping and running errands very convenient. It also made the process of moving less stressful!
