I'm looking for responsive buyers' agents who are familiar with Norcal (and familiar enough with Socal) to do a comparison. Anyone? =D

Hi there! I actually lived up in Norcal for 8 years before moving back to the Orange County area. Let me know if you're still seeking any assistance at all.

This is such a great question. For those relocating to the Sacramento region, specifically, Folsom, EDH area, I am your agent.

To give some background, my family and I made the move from San Diego in 2006, as my husband was in the Military at the time. Having also worked in title and escrow for home sales in Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and Rancho Mirage, I am quite familiar with those areas as well.

As you very well know, the real estate market in the Sacramento region is quite different. Coming from Southern California, I probably have a good idea of what you are interested in. I would love to hear from you.

Have a wonderful day!

Great question! It would help a lot if you could narrow down general areas in Socal and Norcal. Having said that and seeing that you are from Irvine, CA . I know the following areas in Socal reasonably well:
Irvine Ranch
Newport Coast
Huntington, Seal and Long Beach areas

San Francisco, Walnut Creek, Pleasanton, Pleasant Hill and Concord
Sacramento, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Roseville, Lincoln, Auburn, Placerville

If any of those communities make the match in your mind, let me know how to contact you and I would be happy to start by understanding your objective.

Thank you,

I'm not sure of your objective but the MLS that we use here in Sacramento allows us to view homes and values across (most of ) California. I would assume that's true of you with your MLS subscription service as well in the Irvine area.

Are you a buyer or an agent? Price per square foot is the general comparison for pricing but lifestyles vary town by town much less 8-10 hours away. Can you be more specific on what you're trying to compare? Here are some examples of questions that might be relevant. Are quality of schools important? Employment? Commute time? Specific interests/hobbies/pasttimes for you and your family? Are you specifically interested in someone who knows Irvine and surrounding towns to give you an area around Folsom that is 'similar' and explain the differences?

I'm just guessing here... but if you could be more specific on what are the important factors for you, I think some can help you.

while I've lived in the Ventura/Oxnard/Camarillo/Thousand Oaks area back in the day and now in Folsom... I'm curious to know why you'd like to know if some of us have that experience...

I have been an investment Realtor since 1991 in San Jose and now living in Quail Hill in Irvine. I am sure I can give you perspective of both north and south CA.
