Pam; Meet and interview more than one Realtor. After you find someone you like and want to work with, ask that person this question and others. I don't know you, I don't know your needs, I no nothing about you and your concerns. I would say move to Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Los Altos and others before I said 95054 but this is my point. But sure 95054 is a great place to live but compared to what?Best wishes. Hire a professional Realtor.

Hi Pam,
Wishing you a great night! 95054 is a relatively safe place to raise family. The main concentration in zip code of 95054 are Hi Tech companies. Hope this helps.

I've been living in one of the townhouses between Lick Mill and the Guadalupe River trail since mid-September of 2011. I think the neighborhood is pretty nice. I'm single and can't talk about the schools although I know the Don Callejon school is very competitive to get into. I see lots of families with small kids walking the trail and in the small parks.

I haven't experienced any crime. I've been warned by neighbors to not leave the garage door open or leave things on the porch. My place is the closest to the trail and I'm told that minor thefts from garages and porches happen -- all crimes of opportunity.

I like being able to walk to the Rivermark Shopping center, to the restaurants nearby, etc. I sometimes walk the 2 3/4 mile to my office and back. The trail is nice and safe, at least in daylight hours.

My preferred area of Santa Clara is 95051. That is where I was raised.

Hello Pam

The 95054 area of Santa Clara has had a bad reputation for several years. Recent changes to the area now show hope for great change in this area. The new San Francisco 49ers stadium should provide more jobs in the area as well as more desire for housing in this area. The elementary schools are showing improvement in the last two years and new developments are coming to this area. This area has great potential to be something special in the next 5 to 10 years. Best wishes to you and your family
