Hello everyone, my husband is considering a job in the San Francisco Bay Area, the company is located in Emeryville. We actually live in the Hudson Valley area in NY that's like an hour drive to Manhattan. We have 3 kids, two of them in school and a baby, so moving to a good school district is very important. We don't know the area and I would really appreciate any feeback on where to rent, best school district, things to do, parks, house sizes, etc... We have a 5 Bed/3.5 Bath house now, can we find something this big in the San Fran area?? We also need to be close to a major airport since he will be traveling a lot. We had moved a lot in the past 4 years so I want to make sure this time we are not buying until we are sure we really love the area.

It sounds like you are looking for a more suburban area? Would you like a newer ore older neighborhood. I think that Orinda, Lafayette, or Moraga would be nice. They have a small town feel, but are very close to Emeryville. Alameda would also be a good choice.

Moderator cut: Realtor advertising there are some great neighborhoods in Oakland and Berkeley, such as, Crocker Highlands, Upper Rockridge, Montclair, Redwood Hts, Thousand Oaks, Ridgemont...The elementary schools are highly regarded and they are close to parks, restaurants, shopping, transportation, etc...

The Lamorinda area is nice as well. It's more suburban and children and schools are a large focal pointt of the community.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
