At the Heart of Silicon Valley
Cupertino is one of several cities in Silicon Valley, a region in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. Many technologies and computer companies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook were founded here. The city of Cupertino is the home of Apple Inc., with its headquarters located inside a modern circular complex building. It is a 150-acre structure between Interstate 280, N Wolfe Rd, E Homestead Rd, and Tantau Ave. The complex houses nearly 12,000 employees in a single four-level “spaceship-like” building surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Visitors and new-city residents can take an outside look at Apple HQ with ample opportunity to tour nearby homes and neighborhoods.
A Brief History of Cupertino

As of the 2020 census, the population was 57,820 and is expected to increase in the next few years.

Condos and Townhomes
Whether you want to rent or own a condo or townhome, our real estate team has experience in helping families and individuals find the perfect living arrangement. If you don’t feel the need to move into a large home, something smaller like a condo or townhome can be the ideal fit. A condo is a more affordable alternative in an area where single-family homes are pricey. Condos make the perfect living space for first-time buyers or couples that desire something smaller and more manageable.
Townhouses are a good choice for first-time homebuyers or other budget-minded individuals who want more space than typically found in a condo. Because you’re sharing the walls, townhouses generally are less expensive than single-family homes in the same area, even if they have very similar square footage areas. Townhomes also come with limited outdoor or patio space, with some having a private garage for storing equipment or a vehicle.
