Hi, I’m Warren Oberholser. I’m a realtor in the East Bay Tri-Valley area in Northern California. My goal is to help both buyers and sellers get maximum results for one of their biggest investments, their home.
Okay. Let’s address the elephant in the room. What determines a cool neighborhood? That’s a good question. So to make this video fair, I created some measurements or criteria to apply to each city so I could rank and rate their neighborhoods.
Here are the criteria I used. In order to qualify as a cool Tri-Valley neighborhood, you need
1 Great location
2 Unique feature or features
3 Good neighborhood price
Now the price doesn’t reflect the cheapest neighborhood in the city, rather a good deal or value for what you’re getting. Of course, my picks are pretty much subjective.
However, being in the business for a while, I kind of know what buyers are looking for or more important, what they think is cool. And to keep things exciting and fresh and a bit challenging for me, in this BLOG/video, I will not feature any neighborhoods I have featured in my previous BLOGS/videos. Well, enough of the ground rules let’s get started.
We’ll begin with Alamo. The neighborhood is the south Westside area. This is the older part of Alamo. Homes are built in the 1930s to early 1960s. The original construction was from 900 to 1400 square feet. However, many homes have been completely remodeled adding additional square feet to the property. Lot size from 8,000 feet all the way up to an half an acre. Location, it has quick access to Danville Boulevard and the 680 freeway. However, it’s conveniently located from the Alamo traffic area, making it a quiet setting.
Here’s Danville. The neighborhood, the homes located on Glasgow Circle. This is part of Diablo Highlands community. They were built in the late 1980s to early 1990s. Average home size is from 1800 up to 2,800 square feet, lot size from 5,000 to 7,000 square feet. Location, it’s conveniently located off of Camino Tassajara Road, which gives quick access to the 680 freeway. However, it’s tucked away just enough to be quiet and secluded. Cool factor: Some of the properties have backyard canyon views.
Okay. Let’s look at San Ramon. The neighborhood is Pine Valley. The homes are built in the late 1960s to early 1970s. You’ll find a mixture of one to two story homes. The majority are single story. Average home size range from 1,000 to 2,400 square feet. Average lot size from 5,000 to 9,000 square feet. Location is great, close to the freeway, parks and schools.
Cool factor: You’re close to everything. Including parks, schools and the Glass House museum.
Let’s take a look at Dublin. The neighborhood is Creekside. The homes are built in the mid 1990s. You’ll find a mixture of one to two story homes. Average home size is from 1,500 up to 2,800 square feet. Whilst sizes are a bit small, around 4,000 square feet, located right off of Dublin Boulevard makes it convenient for 580 freeway access.
Cool factor: Close to everything, including Hacienda Crossing shopping center and yet the neighborhood is in a quiet area.
Here is Pleasanton. The neighborhood is Mission Park. The homes are built in the 1960s. This neighborhood is primarily made up of one-story homes. The average home size is from 1,400 up to 1,900 square feet. Average lot size is from 6,000 up to 10,000 square feet. However, there are some cul-de-sacs that have lot sizes over 12,000 square feet. Location, close to the freeway, shopping strip mall, main street, parks and schools.
Cool factor: You can walk to downtown Main Street and the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
And last, but definitely not least is Livermore. The neighborhood is Sunset East. The homes are built in the late 1960s to early 1970s. The average home size is 1,000 up to 2,300 square feet. Lot sizes are from 7,000 to 10,000 square feet. The location is outstanding being the residents are within walking distance to the schools and Robertson Park.
Cool factor: Close to numerous activities, including the Livermore downtown area.

Hello…I work with both buyers and sellers in the Tri-Valley area of Northern California. The Tri-Valley is comprised of 6 cities: Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, and Alamo. To better understand what each city has to offer, I have created a Pros and Cons video and BLOG for each – (Pros & Cons for Pleasanton, Pros & Cons for Livermore, Pros & Cons for Dublin, Pros & Cons for San Ramon, Pros & Cons for Danville and Pros & Cons for Alamo). If you are thinking about purchasing or selling a home, please reach out to me by text, phone, or email. If it is convenient, I can schedule a Zoom chat so we can discuss your home goals.
