The town of Tierrasanta is referred to as the "Island in the Hills" as it has no direct bordering neighbor towns, the surrounding areas are Route 52, Route 15, and Mission Trails Park. MCAS Miramar is located right next to the Tierrasanta making it an ideal location for military personel. The park covers nearly 6000 acres of hiking and bicycling trails. Also in town is a sizable recreation center encompassing athletic fields or all sorts, tennis courts, swimming pools, and well vegatated walking paths.

Mission Valley

Mission Valley is an area that is located just a few miles East of the Coastal Communities and a few miles North from Downtown San Diego. It is a very convenient central location to 4 of San Diego's main highways, and surrounds two major shopping areas, The Mission Valley Mall, and The Fashion Valley Mall. There are several tastefully appointed condo complexes that have been built within the area that very suitable for young families, students and retirees, and being in an area that offers everything one would need right nearby lessens the need for a vehicle.

Mission Hills


This cozy town within a city is a very desirable location for those who want to keep in close proximity to the city but are looking for something more unique than a suburban feel. Many of the neighborhoods have well preserved and finely remodeled Craftsman-style homes. These home designs continue to prove to be timeless.  Mission Hills has it's own row of restaurants, grocery stores, and local artisan shops along Washington Street. Mission Hills is close to Balboa Park, and Scripps Medical.


Perched high up above the city of San Diego to the north is this classic urban chiq community that has a mix of newer high rise condominiums with classic single family structures. Leading from Downtown San Diego, Banker's Hill and Hillcrest rise above the city revealing fantastic San Diego Bay and Downtown views. Where San Diego is one of the lowest airport approach cities in the US, homes in the flight path can watch the planes land at close range. Hillcrest is home of an eclectic and trendy crowd.  There are several designer re-sale boutiques along with trendy furniture and home furniture stores see. Certain pockets in Hillcrest house incredible historic Mission and Mediterranean Style homes that carry values well into the millions. Hillcrest has been compared to the ever popular Silver Lake area in Los Angeles.

North Park

Culturally diverse, this area has a mix of areas that are truly urban, and other that are more suburban. As property values in San Diego continued to rise, the investment in North Park continued. Many of the dilapidated properties have been remodeled or replaced and the neighborhoods have seen new light. Sitting near to the epicenter of Downtown San Diego this is an area has grown in desirability.

It is an area that has more modest housing options, along with finer historic properties such as Tudor and Mission style manors. The area has been transition over the years and many properties have been improved upon.

Normal Heights

SOHO San Diego? I think this might be as close as we might get, albeit Hillcrest is perhaps a close second. Normal Heights is a neighborhood that is far from Normal, and San Diegan's feel it is actually quite special. It is a neighborhood in the middle of San Diego that offers a truly enjoyable casual walking experience along Adams Avenue. It is a very social pocket where people of all interests, and backgrounds congregate. It has become a much sought out area from many in their 20's to 40's, along many long time residents well into retirement age.
