My husband got his undergrad degree at SJSU and while some of the "burbs" look similar at first, the bay area weather makes East and West San Jose different when the fog rolls in. All of that matters when buying a home.
Happy House Hunting...

Have a great day!
Fourty years ago, there distinct housing complexes and Developments.
Then, they grew together forming a vast metropolitan area.
Perhaps you should tell your Buyer's Agent exactly what you are looking for and they can find it for you.
Good luck and may God bless
