City of Palo Alto

Thirty five miles south of San Francisco and fourteen miles north of San Jose, Palo Alto is one of Santa Clara County’s most prestigious addresses. Home to many Silicon Valley companies and Stanford University, Palo Alto residents enjoy all that a university town offers and reflects the vibrancy and texture of a 100+ year old city entrenched in a sense of community and appreciation of the diversity of its population of over 60,000 people. Tree-lined streets, pride of ownership throughout beautiful neighborhoods, an award-winning public school system, 30 city parks, many cultural and recreational venues, a colorful downtown, plus the popular Stanford Shopping Center, and incredible moderate climate ... all reasons Palo Alto residential real estate is hard to come by. For many decades demand has out-paced supply for the buyers desiring to live in this stimulating community. The city encompasses an area of approximately twenty six square miles, of which one third is open space.
