Hi again, You may like Silver Creek Valley CC. The rental market here ranges from $4000-$6000/ month for contemporary mediterranean style homes of appx. 3200-5000sqft. I added a link the swim club uses. Maybe you could gain more specific info on their team events from there.

I think a 'Welcome to California' is in order! :)

Almaden is the best balance of quality, price and value. Several community swim teams in the different neighborhoods, or there are a few club level options if you are more serious about your swim and tennis. The closest thing to a "leave it to Beaver" neighborhood that I have been able to find. Great family centered culture, reasonable demographics, great schools(public and private), lowest crime precinct in the county etc. Expect to see 2.5-4k per month to rent(yikes), the demand is very high right now. Home prices start at approx 700k, median value is approx 1mil for a nice home/location around 2000-2600sf, 1.2ish if you want 3000sf and a little newer, up to 2-4 mil for a few high end places.

Never heard of any of those other agents(except for Roland)... Huh? Must not have raised their families in Almaden. ':o)

Would love an opportunity to earn your business.

Thank you, Christina:

When you mention Swim Team community, are you looking for a community with a Swim Team that is competitive at the Olympic level or something less competitive?

The City of Santa Clara is home to a swim team that does send people to the Olympics and those swimmers often win.

If you are looking for a community with a very competitive Swim Team, I recommend the City of Santa Clara.

Santa Clara has very good schools. In fact, in my early years I grew up in Santa Clara and did attend Santa Clara Schools.

For more information, please call me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

That is a wise decision, most of my buyers go my web page put in a search or searchs and take a bout 6 months to a year before they let me know they are ready to purchase a home. If you like feel free to log onto my web site and put in some searchs or you can email me and I will enter them for you.
As always feel free to contact me with any questions.
At your service,

Hi Christinac,
I can understand how difficult it is for moving from Atlanta to San Jose. Home price is a big difference but you certainly will enjoy great weather. Please contact me if you need information about rental properties or homes for sale in San Jose.
Best of luck,

Kevin Vo
