I cant find a place in California including Beverly Hills where each home is perfect, we all know it is not a perfect world. I have not had an issue with any type of vandalism or theft that is a BIG statement for the world we live in.
We walk to the theatre, Original Joes, Gordon Biersch, Camera 1, Pizza My Heart and to the great Farmers Markets at both San Pedro Square and Japan Town. There is a real sense of pride in renovating a home built at the turn of the century and Naglee Park is full of these treasured gems and being part of a history of the home and the community. I recently sold a home to a Canadian fellow and when I asked him why he wanted to specifically live in Naglee Park he told me it was because of our great Fourth of July Parade which is a slice of pride and a Naglee Park classic community event. It ends in a pot luck picnic in the William Street Park. Most recently a Naglee Park Home Tour was added and each year over 700 tickets are sold to this one day event in April sponsored by the San Jose Woman's Club. Before I forget we Naglee Parker's also sponsor the larges Dog festival in Northern California another great community event. You can come even if you dont have a dog!!! I hope you will take a tour of our neighborhood the hidden gem that no one (even most San Jose residents) be authentic be a Naglee Parker!!

The open house I held on S 15th St. brought in about 30 prospective buyers. I met several neighbors and read the Advisor which is a neighborhood community paper that the homeowner had. Like I said this is a tight-knit community and there are a lot of volunteers for their community. They even have a July 4th parade so check out the area again this weekend.
I have friends that live in this area and I they have never mentioned anything to me about not feeling safe.
However, what makes a particular neighborhood "safe" is best decided by the individual who will be living in the area. A map-based geo-located crime stats tool that I recommend you visit is http://www.crimereports.com/map?search=san+jose%2C+ca
You will have to zoom into the Naglee Park area; however, I think you will find this site quite useful. Take a look at the "Analytics" tab as well.
While a Buyer can "go it alone" when buying from a Builder, it is much more prudent to have your own Realtor representation. Here are a few considerations to be aware of when buying from a Builder: http://docs.Steven-Anthony.com/BuilderRealtorAgent.pdf
