Hi, I'm a Real Estate Agent in Santa Clara and the greater Bay Area. I love to work with people that want to find or sell their home. Santa Clara, Ca is a great place to own a home for those looking to buy. We have safe schools, great neighborhoods, entertainment and a booming tech industry.
Santa Clara is located in the center of Silicon Valley and is home to the headquarters of several high-tech companies. It is the site of Levi's Stadium, the future home of the National Football League's San Francisco 49ers and site of Super Bowl L. It is also home to Santa Clara University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of California. The city is bordered by San Jose, Sunnyvale and Cupertino.
Transportation: Santa Clara has two major train stations: the Santa Clara -- Great America Station and the Santa Clara Station. The former is served by Amtrak's Capitol Corridor train and Altamont Commuter Express, while the latter is served by Caltrain and Altamont Commuter Express. Santa Clara is located adjacent to Mineta San Jose International Airport, in fact a small portion of the airport is in Santa Clara. Some other nearby major airports include San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport. Most public buses in the city are operated by Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority. There is a light rail system in Santa Clara and the rest of the county which is also operated by Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority(VTA).
Santa Clara is also home to California's Great America, an amusement park currently operated by Cedar Fair, L.P.. Nearby is the Santa Clara Convention Center, one of Silicon Valley's largest event and meeting venues. Santa Clara also offers several museums such as the Intel Museum, Triton Museum of Art, and the Harris - Lass historical house. Near the above mentioned Mission College is the Our Lady of Peace Shrine notable for its thirty-two foot tall statue which is viewable from Highway 101 in a manner similar to the statue of Junípero Serra in Hillsborough, CA. The Mission City Center for Performing Arts is the city's venue for theatrical productions and entertainment. The San Francisco 49ers NFL football team has its headquarters and practice facilities in Santa Clara. On Wednesday, November 8, 2006, the 49ers announced their intention to move the team to Santa Clara in time for the fall 2014 season, after negotiations failed with the city of San Francisco to build a new stadium.
