Welcome to Redwood City
Vibrant, thriving, and the perfect blend of urban convenience and suburban serenity
Just a short drive outside of central San Francisco and on the edge of the renowned Silicon Valley, Redwood City offers homeowners an idyllic lifestyle full of world-class restaurants, outstanding entertainment venues, art galleries, festivals, and a thriving business district as well as a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. Welcoming neighbors and a family-friendly personality that permeates every corner of the community are just a couple of the reasons why Redwood City is now one of the most attractive neighborhoods for some of California’s most successful entrepreneurs, business owners, and families.
Originally established as a port city for logging products and other local goods, this community has now become a center for technology and exciting new developments. While not technically considered part of Silicon Valley, Redwood City is home to a variety of forward-thinking technology companies like Oracle and Evernote, offering several job opportunities as well as helping to contribute to the ever-growing economic boom seen throughout the area in recent years.
