Serving All of Gilroy

Gilroy has established itself as the place to be if you work in the bay area, but you’re looking for your home to be in a bit of a smaller town where you won’t be dealing with the hectic big city life. In a sense, it’s what San Jose could have been or should have been. At this point though, San Jose has just grown exponentially to the point where if you were looking for it to be an out from the big city life that you had in San Francisco it’s just not going to cut it. Even if you are to head out to the suburb area.

Living in Gilroy is taking all of that one step further. Although you are a bit further away from some of the main tech hubs than you would be in San Jose or directly within the main Bay area region where all of this development is taking place you get the breather of the small city life. We just can’t say enough about how privileged Gilroy’s location really is. Do you want to head over to the main coastal area of Monterey county? That’s only a small drive away. Are you looking to drive into the main San Fran area every day? That is something that you can do. You’re about an hour and change out from the San Fran area. If you want to head to Menlo Park or Palo Alto you can be there within the hour. As far as California distances go that’s a great deal.

If you own a property in Gilroy that you want to rent out or just want extra help with the upkeep contacting local property managers can be the right decision. Have your real estate investments really work for you instead of them being yet another full-time job that you have to take care of.
