Welcome to Redwood City

Contemporary and community-oriented
Located in the center of Silicon Valley, Redwood City is a technology-centric town. It’s known for 255 sunny days a year, warranting the town slogan “Climate Best by Government Test.” Great weather and community orientation make this town a perfect destination for NorCal dwellers. 
Redwood City’s rich history began with Spanish Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza’s arrival and exploration in 1776. By the 1840s, there was an inundation of Americans migrating west. During the California Gold Rush in 1848, the town became industrious, with logging, tanning, and shipping being its primary services. The area developed further in the early 1900s, and by 2000, Redwood City’s population grew to over 75,000 people.
Real estate prices are high though lower than other neighboring towns, with the median home value being approximately $1.3M. This historic town offers a wide range of home architectural styles, including Victorian, Queen Anne, Eastlake, bungalow, Spanish Revival, and the more contemporary California ranch-style. So many different home styles offer something for everyone’s liking.
