 What are people saying?

“Located just next to Trestle Glen and Crocker Highlands, Glenview boasts many of the same amenities as those already-hot areas, but has more affordable home prices.This neighborhood features many renovated, single-family homes with three to four bedrooms on large lots. The commercial district is just a short walk, and with downtown San Francisco just a 30-minute bus ride away, many people are flocking to the area for the convenient commute and easy access to other popular Oakland neighborhoods.” – Davey Cetina
