San Carlos is known by many as “The City of Good Living”. With just over 28,000 residents, this once sleepy town is now a vibrant community featuring award winning schools and a destination downtown. In the mid-1990s, San Carlos underwent a massive transformation as it completed its journey from an older town to one that became overrun with young families and new businesses.
Most buyers are attracted to San Carlos for three primary reasons (1) award winning schools; (2) a small-town community feel; and (3) a downtown featuring a variety of restaurants, bars and eclectic shops.
San Carlos has benefitted tremendously from the technology boom. Its mid-peninsula location puts it half way between San Francisco and the heart of Silicon Valley. San Carlos offers properties with world class views in its hills, to properties in the flats which offer an easy walk to downtown, parks and schools.
