I am a 78-year-old woman who is SO thankful to have been raised in Willow Glen. I attended Edwin Markham Junior High, Willow Glen High, and spent wonderful Friday nights and Saturday matinees at the Garden Theatre.


Now my daughter lives in Willow Glen, about 2 blocks away from my childhood home. We are both blessed.

Milford Village is the area to buy a house. It is the area in Milpitas with Yosemite to the south, Calaveras to the north, Carnegie to the west, and Temple to the east. I've spent many years here and have enjoyed it. An occasional bad neighbor has been the only problem. ... more

Sunnyvale is my hometown. My parents moved here in 1960 for the weather, location and quality of life. It is considered one of the best-run cities in Silicon Valley. Rents are high in Silicon Valley. Your Art Institute should give you some guidance on housing options. If not, we have some of the best property managers and apartment communities in The Valley. ... more

We have so many wonderful cities to choose from but some will price most people out of the market.

Of them all, Campbell is a great and fairly place to live. Great schools*, centrally located, low crime, and a small town, community feel. As with most towns, there are areas that are more desirable than others. The neighborhood in between Leigh, Campbell Ave, Meridian and Curtner is very nice and gives you access to the distinguished Cambrian School District*. ... more

Hi Chi-hua:

Interesting that you should cite the plane noise. Most of my clients are more concerned about the noise from the freeway (280) rather than that of noise from planes, and--believe it or not--there is a lot less noise from planes with the reduced activity from Moffett Field. I hardly hear planes or jets, as much as I did in the past.

As for quieter sections of Los Altos, I've noticed that the further I get toward Palo Alto (in the hills), the more the noise from other sources (freeway or planes) seem to be noticeable. I believe this is due to the topography of the area (more rolling foothills and less densely wooded areas) allowing for less difussion of sound. I don't seem to hear as much noise from planes or freeway along, say, Magdalena or the areas behind Foothill College, but there are many other areas that are equally as quiet in Los Altos and Palo Alto.

If noise is a factor in your buying decision, it's best to take the time to visit the home as many times as possible to hear noise in the morning, during the day, afternoon and in the evening. This will also help you understand traffic patterns in the area as well as parking and commute issues that may impact your decision to buy a home.

And, most importantly, work with a great agent to help you find a home and to ferret out any peculiarities of the property that might cause you concern after purchase.

Good luck!

I would say around $3,200 . I rented a 3 bedroom 2 Bath Duplex for $2,500 in 95051 earlier this year and it didn't even have Cupertino Schools.
