San Francisco is one of the most well-known and recognisable cities in the world.
Famous for its beautiful Golden Gate Bridge and steep streets, San Fran’s rich and diverse culture makes this area truly unique.
Justin Fichelson, co-founder and CEO at Avenue 8 brokerage says: “San Francisco is a place of ideas and innovation and is the Florence of our time. Most of the things that are changing the world, from Tesla and Facebook, to Uber and Twitter all originate from this small geographic region. It has the most innovative and entrepreneurial environment and culture anywhere. When it comes to popular neighbourhoods, there are many great areas. Pacific Heights is one of the most expensive areas in the city and includes the Gold Coast aka ‘Billionaires’ Row,’ which has some of the grandest mansions in the city with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay”.
Annie Williams, associate at Sotheby’s International Realty – San Francisco Brokerage adds: “San Francisco has always been an attractive place to live due to its incredible natural beauty and temperate climate. The seven hills of SF allow stunning water views and twinkling city lights from many unexpected vistas.
“A three-hour drive in any direction from San Francisco allows access to world-class skiing and boating in Lake Tahoe, the beaches and golf courses of Carmel and the sunshine, views and wineries reminiscent of Europe in Napa and Sonoma Valleys. What has been layered on top of that for the past 30 years is a strong and diverse job market. The proximity of Stanford and Berkeley have churned out world leaders in biotech, high tech and now digital currencies and the bankers and lawyers who support them. Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Russian Hill, Nob Hill and Noe Valley are all upscale places to live.”
