Orinda or San Ramon - both seem to have great schools (elem through high). Any opinions on which place is better to live in?

Both Trulia and Zillow don't have the latest info when "for sale" home's status changed to "pending", thus wasting my time. Only Redfin is reliable.
I would suggest working with a local realtor to help you find a property.
