What do you love the most about your neighborhood?
Location location location: Partially hilly, so has great views. Proximity to 280. Homes in our neighborhood have a good lot size, so while we have the necessary amount of privacy, we don’t feel secluded either.
Amazing neighbors and that we live close to the beautiful Mills Canyon.
What was your journey like buying a home?
The process moved quicker than we thought. We advanced our search by a year due to covid. We narrowed down our search to Burlingame over a few days, and found our dream home within a month.
Fun. And things progressed sooner than we anticipated. We had just started exploring different neighborhoods in the Peninsula and were lucky to find our perfect home in a matter of 3-4 weeks.
