I have been a resident of Santa Clarita since 1981 and attended elementary, junior high, and high school in Santa Clarita. I spent my early years in the San Fernando Valley and LA areas, but with those cities reaching its limit for new construction and schools getting over crowded Santa Clarita was a great alternative for my parents and has become that alternative for many families. The funny thing is today you will find that half of the people who live here lived in the San Fernando, Burbank, and Tujunga areas at some point of their lives.
There are several reasons why Santa Clarita is a desirable area to many home buyers:
Location: The proximity and location of Santa Clarita to LA City and surrounding areas makes it very easy to access and enjoy the cultural and business opportunities in the LA area. Many adults are willing to make the commute to the LA area to live in one of Valencia's Master Planned communities and enjoy the hour distance to the beach or the mountains. SCV is ranked as one of the top retail markets in California and some of the most successful entertainment, biomedical, technology, manufacturing, lifestyle, and aerospace companies are based in Santa Clarita.
Award Winning Schools: Nearly two-thirds of Santa Clarita's elementary schools have been named a California Distinguished School at least once, if not several times, for a total of nearly 90 individual awards of recognition since 1986. Santa Clarita schools consistently rank among the top 10 percent in the state. Please visit the link to Santa Clarita's Schools under Community Information to learn more about individual schools.
Price and Affordability: Home buyers who are looking to buy a home in Saugus, Valencia, Newhall, Canyon Country, Castaic, Stevenson Ranch, Acton, or Agua Dulce will be impressed with the quality and price range of the homes for sale in the Santa Clarita Real Estate Market. After many buyers purchase their first homes in Santa Clarita they will usually sell their home within 3-5 years to move up to larger spaces.
I have been in real estate since 1996 and have represented over a thousand home buyers and home sellers in the Santa Clarita and surrounding areas. Properties range from single family homes, condos, townhomes, investment properties, multi-unit, land, REO's, and short sales. I specialize in single family homes, condos, and townhomes in Acton, Aqua Dulce, Canyon Country, Saugus, Newhall, Valencia, Castaic, Stevenson Ranch and even Green Valley. I also represent Ventura County, San Fernando Valley, and Palmdale and Lancaster. I take pride in working directly with my clients from the first phone call until closing and far after; my clients become my friends. With almost 2 decades of real estate experience, it is my pleasure to represent my clients and leading their dreams to reality.
