If you're coming to Oakland, feel free to download a Relocation Package courtesy of Chicago Title Company. It will provide you with some great information about our City including schools, transportation, recreation, restaurants and more.
You can learn a little about our different neighborhoods and search the Oakland MLS for homes that fit your needs. To get familiar with the roads, highways and neighborhoods, use Google Maps and zoom around the City to get a feel for things.
If you don't have the time to search on your own, you can fill out my Homefinder form which will tell me exactly what features you need in your next home. I will locate homes that most closely fit your needs so you can decide if you want to see them.
You can also search for schools in Oakland and other nearby cities, which is a great tool to have if schools are an issue for you.
You can accomplish all of this using this site, and when it's time for you to talk to a professional about making your plans a reality you can contact me.
Also, check out the Oakland Encyclopedia to learn more about this fabulous city.
