I live in Danville 94506. Moved here from Danville 94526. What does that mean? Moved from west side to east side. I found a larger, newer home that I really liked on the east side and here I sit. Most of the newer homes are on the east side. You will pay a premium for a home within walking distance to downtown Danville.
Danville is a city with a high quality of living, great schools and wonderful neighborhoods. They differ a bit. Greenbrook has a great swim/tennis club, but older homes. Alamo Creek on the east side has wonderful spacious new and nearly new homes, but their aquatic center is not yet complete.
You need to make a list of attributes that are important to you in your next home and discuss them with your buyer's representative.
http://www.LiveDanville.com is a website where you will find blogs with blog tabs on homes for sale and home values and school API's in 94506. http://www.VickieSellsHomes.com is all inclusive of Danville and San Ramon neighborhoods.

It is good of you to put a picture of you and your son on the question page; it makes it more like I am talking directly to you! All of Danville schools are part of the San Ramon Valley School District so you can go on their website, http://www.srvusd.k12.ca.us, and see their school ratings and find out which schools a particular address will attend. Unlike Walnut Creek where there are a lot of areas which have more mature residents, Danville (especially the newer home areas) tends to have a multitude of children. We have many people from all over the Bay Area making Danville their destination of choice because of the excellent school system!
I have been selling real estate in the Danville area since 1985 and would be happy to assist you with any further questions you may have about the town of Danville.

Community activities are major. On my website I have an Area School link that will provide on overview of the schools in the area. The link Trends & Statistics will get you the California Association of Realtors. The Market Data link provides a great deal of statistics for this area. Enjoy!!
By the way, when I bought my house my children were in preschool (now they are parents themselves). I looked at many communities, and settled in Danville because of the many child-oriented attributes! I'd make the same decision again! It just gets better all of the time!
I currently reside in Danville having moved here from Pleasant Hill over 6 years ago and I absolutely love it. Since I don't know your price range I can tell you that there are several neighborhoods priced from about the mid $500,000 to over a million within walking distance to 12 years of excellent schools. Additionally a park, pond, trails and membership pool are also located within this area, although the major draw is the schools. A real bonus is the parks organization which is one of the best around with many events and classes I've not seen offered anywhere else. Besides school keeping your children occupied there is so much to do in this area I doubt you will ever hear them complain that there is nothing to do. Hopefully this little bit of information has been helpful to you. :)

My suggestion would be to go to Garage Sales on Saturday mornings:
It is a lot of fun and you get to meet and talk to people.
If you see a FOR SALE sign, you can ask them about it and pass the info to your Realtor.
Good luck and may God bless
For the past seventeen years I have raised two daughters in Danville, they have grown up to be intelligent, well rounded adults. You canâ€™t go wrong with any part of Danville! Within Danville there are two different zip codes 94506 and 94526 it is just your preference as to what area you like best. Here is some detailed information for you to go over on both of the areas. If there is anything else I can do for you please do not hesitate to call.
I would be happy to send you more details specifically on Danville neighborhoods, market trends from month to month, and inventory levels.
Gto know the neighborhood, with your agent before you purchase. See what commute patterns look like, see if there are kids playing in the street, talk with neighbors on a block you are considering buying. The more homework you do, the happier you will be with your decision.
Happy home hunting!

Danville in a whole is a great place. What you need to decide is what you want in a home, your price range and then see where Danville you may get what you want in the perfect area of Danville. You also might like to think about whether you like old or new. West Danville for the most part is a very desirable area. You have older homes in gorgeous neighborhoods that have been updated. What you might say is the best of both worlds. When you know what kind of home you like, then you can find that perfect house. There are new communities up and rising even in Danville. Call me if you would like to dscuss your options and find that perfect house in that perfect neighboorhood you have been always lookng for and I will find it for you.
All my best,

Nice picture. Danville is a city with great schools and high quality of living. If you like the newer home area with two schools (elementary & middle) close to the neighborhood, please come to visit the neighborhood of my new listing at 158 Channi Loop. There're townhouses and single family homes ranging from about $490k to above 1M.

I see you are presenty in Walnut Creek. All the schools that feed into either Las Lomas High School or Northgate High School will also be excellent. Walnut Creek will have a wider socio-economic range than the other areas mentioned. That may be an important plus or minus for your consideration.

It all comes down to what kind of neighborhood you really want. Flatlands are always easier for bike riding, etc, Your agent should give you the whole tour of neighborhoods that fit your price range, so you can identify the kinds of neighborhoods that feel right to you - big trees, big lots, older homes, newer homes, smaller lots. That way you eliminate the areas that don't work and you can focus on those that do. I like to take people on a Saturday morning, so you can see activities happening, see your potential neighbors. Then, among the neighborhoods where you feel you could call it "home" you can talk with your agents about which ones have more kids in the ages of yours. Good luck!
