Relocating to Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley was once called The Valley of Heart's DelightBecause Silicon Valley seems to be the epicenter of entrepeneurship, we have a constant influx of high tech professionals, especially, to this region.  Many hail from far away places either in the US or abroad.  It is my pleasure to assist them in making the “South Bay” home and help them to find the perfect place to live whether it’s a house, condominium or townhouse. 

I’m a Silicon Valley native but have lived in other places, too (including in Florence, Italy, while a junior in college) so I’m very empathetic as to the upheaval and culture shock that can be involved in moving to a new place.

Silicon Valley Relocation Information

There are several blog posts written for people relocating to Silicon Valley (the San Jose area, primarily Santa Clara County). You can view them by clicking on the category link for relocation related articles.

Additionally, I have a small website specifically for moving to Silicon Valley: There you’ll find general info on Santa Clara County, what it’s like, what homes cost, etc.

Old Republic Title has an online Relocation Guide to Santa Clara County (and also other communities in the greater San Francisco Bay Area) you can view too.
