Where Should I Live?

Ask a realtor

You are...

A couple growing a family that needs more space and wants good schools 

San Elijo Hills, nestled between La Costa and San Marcos, is an award-winning community that features the highest-rated schools in North County, good home values since it is slightly inland, outdoor amenities, and family-oriented neighborhoods.”
- Mary Maloney, Hometown Realty

“There are the obvious choices, such as Mission Hills and Point Loma, for superior schooling, but Del Cerro, San Carlos, and Allied Gardens also meet these desires. The housing is more affordable. There are public spaces, mountain views, regional parks, and community recreation for the kiddos, in addition to (private, public, and charter) schooling options.”
- Amy O’Dorisio, Ascent Real Estate


You are...

A DINK (dual-income couple with no kids) 

“The couples I’ve worked with all have dogs but no kids. They are leaving P.B., Mission Beach, and downtown for neighborhoods like Kensington, North Park, and University Heights with a sense of place and history that are pedestrian-friendly with restaurants and coffee houses, and homes that they perceive as having long-term appreciation.”
- Ken Baer, Willis Allen

“If you’re looking for more peace and privacy, but are not ready to leave city life in its entirety, homebuyers and even renters should consider South Park and Golden Hill. With proximity to downtown and Balboa Park, the lifestyle guarantees you’ll walk and bike to shops, yoga studios, coffee roasters, and restaurants.”
- Brooke Russo, Century 21
