Residential property values have been rising steadily in Contra Costa and Alameda counties. Simply put, more people want to move here for affordability, access to public transit, job growth, good schools and the diverse East Bay lifestyle that suits families and young professionals alike.
Tech start-ups and major companies have been setting up shop, moving to, or expanding in the East Bay. Recent high-proﬁle moves to Downtown Oakland include Pandora Media, Oracle, and Blue Shield of California. Sungevity, Clorox, and Kaiser Permanente also call Oakland home. Tesla and Facebook have expansions planned in Fremont.
People continue to migrate from metro centers to the suburbs. The exodus is driven by affordability, availability of homes for sale and rentals, jobs and good schools. Dublin, Brentwood and Hercules are among the fastest growing cities in the East Bay. Dublin alone grew by nearly 26 percent between 2010-2017 and ranked third on Realtor.com’s study of America’s “10 Top Suburban Neighborhoods.”

What we like best about Abio is their knowledge of the industry and ability to communicate that so you know exactly what is going on and what will occur. We also like the “non-pressure” style, whether purchasing or selling. They truly want you to be happy and not just “close the deal.”Lloyd
