Welcome to Rocklin
Fast-growing mining town with a luxury property market.
Steeped in rich mining history, Rocklin is a beautiful small city located northeast of Sacramento. Originally known for its granite mining quarries, Rocklin granite found its way to many international landmarks, including the Bank of Italy, the Bank of America, and the United States Mint.
With sweeping views of the surrounding Sierra Mountains, Sutter Buttes, and Sacramento skyline, modern Rocklin has transformed into a popular real estate market thanks to its diverse housing options and excellent quality of life ratings. Home to properties built in a variety of architectural styles, from Craftsman to Colonial to Spanish Revival and Mediterranean, Rocklin has a home to match every taste and preference. The sprawling planned communities of Stanford Ranch and Whitney Ranch are incredibly popular among potential homeowners for their tranquil residential streets and convenient access to all the city’s major amenities.
This varied property market, accompanied by the city’s plethora of excellent schools, beautifully kept public parks, and lively downtown district, renders it extremely attractive to families, young professionals, and retirees alike.
