There’s a reason Rick and Ernie choose to practice in Berkeley, California. As successful business owners for the past 15 years, we have seen the dynamic sides of Berkeley and have chosen the East Bay as our place to call home. No strangers to the East Bay, we grew up here and love it! Our clients come from all over and we can’t stop boasting about the great reasons to settle here. We thought it might be useful to list some of the best reasons to buy in the surrounding areas of Berkeley.
Here are our top reasons:
Location, location, location: Berkeley and its surrounding communities offer homeowners a terrific place to call home. Its central location to San Francisco, the East Bay, South Bay and in between allow residents a choice of where to work, play, and visit, all within a short and easy jaunt on the freeway or a hop on Bart.
Hometown feeling: Go Bears! There is nothing like the hometown feeling of supporting your local teams, and Berkeley and the surrounding areas offer an opportunity to jump on the Cal Bears Bandwagon. The University of California is a top-notch, well-respected College and it’s right in our backyard. Students from all over the world call Berkeley home, and we are proud to honor their success and enjoy all that the University of Berkeley brings to our community.
Foodies Delight: People flock from all over to enjoy the delicious food opportunities Berkeley has to offer. A culinary melting pot, Berkeley is known for its delicious food choices from award winning Italian eateries to sushi, burgers, vegan delights, Chinese, high end restaurants, sweet retreats, bars, Korean, Indian, and coffee houses.

Diversity: Highly known for its acceptance of many people, beliefs, points of view, styles of attire, and ways of life, Berkeley is a fantastic town to live and express whom you are. Berkeley embraces all styles and ways of life and is one of the most accepting places to live and work. On one street corner you may see a professional in a suit and tie and standing across the street might be someone in the infamous Birkenstocks and tie-dye shirt or shorts and t-shirt or flowing skirt. Love yoga? Practice Buddhism? You’re not alone. Berkeley and our surrounding areas are the epitome of a mesh of interests.
Architecture: Our buildings have history and are some of the most awe-inspiring pieces of design in the Bay Area. Drive along Tunnel Road and see the famous Claremont Hotel or spend some leisurely time along the Berkeley campus and take in the beauty of the classic homes and buildings. Travel 8 miles and see the gorgeous architecture made famous by Bernard Maybeck. Timeless classics, these buildings represent beauty, class, and art.
