Welcome to Sacramento
On-the-go urban living in the “City of Trees”.
Founded in 1848, Sacramento is the capital of California and the seat of Sacramento County. Known as the "City of Trees” and the “Farm to Fork Capital,” Sacramento is home to hundreds of parks and green spaces, as well as the American River Parkway, which gives residents a visual break from the city’s impressive, towering skyline. Sacramento's diverse population and culture are reflected in its food, art, and music scene, and thanks to its strong economy and sunny climate, the city is a popular destination for families and retirees alike.
With homes ranging from condos and penthouses to classic California bungalows, mid-century residences, and huge suburban properties, the city’s real estate market is exceptionally strong and varied. As a product of America’s Fab 40s, Sacramento has a lot of distinctive character and small-town appeal despite being a bustling metropolis.
