Diverse home styles, small-town vibe, and abundant outdoor recreation.

Welcome to Livermore

Livermore is a growing city in the Eastern San Francisco Bay Area that hasn’t lost touch with its small-town roots. Livermore’s agricultural heritage is evident in its thriving wine country. Upscale, but never uptight, you’re sure to find families enjoying picnics on the lawn, or listening to live music at one of Livermore’s forty wineries.

 

Livermore began as a ranching, agricultural, and railroad town. In the 1950s, Livermore’s population began to increase, and some of its first suburban communities were developed along the northern edge of town. Slow growth continued, and well-planned neighborhoods spread to the south. Today’s real estate includes spectacular custom properties with expansive lots and sweeping vistas of the nearby hills, historic homes within walking distance to locally owned shops and eateries in the quaint downtown, and exquisite suburban communities – both new and well-established – with a close-knit neighborhood feel. Livermore’s diversity, its small-town charm, and its proximity to both the San Francisco and South Bay areas make it a desirable place to call home.
