When choosing a place to live, a lot of thought goes into deciding the lifestyle that is the best fit. We're now Living my San Francisco Dream, after 40 great years of living in San Carlos, where I continue to work. If you're wondering what appealed to us, take a look at a few of the reasons:

Walk Score for Jackson & Van Ness, SFOur neighborhood is walkable!

San Francisco Opera HouseThe cultural options are many!

Nagano Sushi, Geary Blvd, SFStaff at The Candy Shop, Vallejo St, SFOwner, Polk Street Florist, San FranciscoThe shopkeepers are friendly!

Dragon Head, SF Civic PlazaSomething goes on all the time!

Jackson Tower, Jackson and Van Ness, SFOur condo life is grand!

view from Pacific Place, SFAnd the views aren't bad, either!


Do you want to explore the idea of leaving the suburbs and moving to San Francisco? Give me a call, and soon you can be living your San Francisco dream, too.

I lived in Napa for almost 10 years and took a jacket everytime we went to The City - the weather can change 10 degrees in 2 miles....great area to live!

Lottie, good for you, deciding to "live your dream".  I have to say I am a bit jealous, although I love my Rockwall, Texas living.  I love San Francisco having lived many years ago in Foster City.  I have two dear friends who moved from Texas to live their San Francisco dream.  They have lived that dream for years now and I enjoy visiting them.  It is a lifestyle like none other and all the reasons that you mention are reasons they love living there and that I love visiting them.

My cousin is a Realtor in San Francisco. Never understood why he always has a smile on his face. Then I noticed the transaction price of some of his closings!

Doug, prices are high here; competition is tough as you might imagine. But the reasons for living here go far beyond real estate prices!

Judi, on the surface our lives are very different, but I have a feeling that we're not.
