Bay Property Group loves San Francisco and Oakland, but there’s a lot more to the Bay Area than these big-name cities. For aspiring residents who come to us to find their next abode, home sweet home can range from an urban loft to a refuge in the hills.
Dozens of towns surround San Francisco and major East Bay hubs and each has its own unique, only-in-the-Bay qualities that are worth apartment shoppers to consider, and one of them is Albany, a city on the east shore of San Francisco Bay in northwestern Alameda County. Situated between North Berkeley, El Cerrito, and Richmond, Albany is close to major freeways, as well as BART and other public transportation.
For residents seeking a small town ambiance with the vitality of a major city, Albany may be a good fit — it has it all.
Albany is home to Golden Gate Fields, where you can experience horse racing, spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, and some of the best people watching the world over.
Solano Avenue is Albany’s main artery and offers a cornucopia of charming retail shops, bookstores, antique dealers, and ethnic restaurants with a variety of cuisines to satisfy every palate.
Residents with children will enjoy friendly neighbors, grassy parks and playgrounds, and top-notched schools with a tradition of excellence, consistently placed in the 90th percentiles year after year.
There is a lot to explore in Albany and throughout the Bay Area before you settle into your new apartment, and Bay Property Group will show you around. We know these towns.
