San Ramon

Welcome to San Ramon

Sprawling suburban town popular among commuting professionals

Known for its splendid natural surroundings and enviable views of Mount Diablo, San Ramon is a sprawling suburban town located only 35 miles north of Silicon Valley and east of San Francisco. Intersected by Interstate 680, San Ramon is only a few minutes’ drive away from both Dublin and Danville, only adding to its convenient appeal. Despite its small-town status and charm, San Ramon is the site of several major corporation headquarters, including Cooper Companies, the Chevron Corporation, 24 Hour Fitness, and AT&T's West Coast head offices.

The town’s burgeoning business district, beautiful outdoor spaces, many annual festivals, and year-round sunny weather have made it particularly popular among professionals and young families who work in town or commute daily to the surrounding cities. 

Originally part of the Rancho San Ramon land grant, the settlement developed into a railroad town before flourishing into the active, sought-after community it is today. Thanks to a surplus of space, most residential properties in San Ramon are multi-story single-family homes surrounded by well-manicured lawns and expertly landscaped gardens.
