What Makes the Bay Area Marketplace Different

Hill & Co. Sales Manager Jill Gumina was quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle recently, this time responding to the question “What makes the Bay Area marketplace different from other local markets?”

Here’s what she had to say:

“Our unique ability to embrace change of all manner and style, search for better solutions, improve the quality of our lives and those around us and the diversity of lifestyles make the Bay Area an exceedingly desirable place to live.”

“Creating companies and work places that develop new medical, environmental, technological, educational and socioeconomic transformations draws and attracts the brightest people in the world to our communities.”

“Couple those attributes with some of the best weather on the planet, beautiful and vibrant coastal and inland cities and towns and the attraction is irresistible.”

“A strong labor market that includes skills and jobs of all levels and dimensions fuels that desire and drives up the need for additional housing.”

“Property values and construction costs are at all-time highs with contractors searching worldwide for qualified workers. Huge demand and low housing supplies continue to sustain our robust and vigorous housing market, unlike anywhere else in the country.”
