San Ramon is a growing city of some 75,000 people, situated off Highway 680 in the San Francisco East Bay, around 30 miles east of San Francisco. It is very well-positioned for commuting to San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and Silicon Valley. Increasingly though, residents are likely to work locally, many in the growing Bishop Ranch office park. This is a beautiful area surrounded by rolling hills, and activities here are limitless. There are hiking trails, biking trails, a theater, a movie theater, golf courses, a community college, and many parks. And that’s just for starters. We have great schools, numerous restaurants at all price points and much more.
Just like most of the Tri-Valley, San Ramon had its beginnings as a ranching and agricultural area, with rolling oak studded hills and spectacular valleys. It was settled in the late 1700’s, but it was the gold rush period that really put San Ramon on the map, thanks to a stage coach line that ran from the valley to Oakland. Today, San Ramon is a dynamic city with a variety of homes, parks, shopping and entertainment options, and a major employment center.
Considered by many to be just another bedroom community, San Ramon is now a highly desirable place to live.
