About Berkeley California

Berkeley is a quintessential California city with residents that are proud to call it home. Well known for its cultural diversity, environmental awareness and academics, Berkeley truly has something to offer everyone.

Located on the eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley has many nearby neighbors.  To the south are Oakland and Emeryville.  To the north is Albany and Kensington and to the East is the Pacific Coastal Range whose ridge line is the border with Contra Costa County.

Home to the University of California’s first campus, Berkeley is a relatively small city with busting neighborhoods. From Craftsman bungalows, stately Victorians to wooded hillside hideaways, homebuyers have many options to choose from. Famous architects such as William Wurster, Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck have contributed to some of Berkeley’s unique real estate.

Your Berkeley’s Founder & Neighborhood Ambassador- Arron Sweeney

Arron lives in the Berkeley Hills neighborhood with his wife, dog and children. Having spent over fifteen years in restaurant management, Arron brings his entrepreneurial spirit and client relationship experience to the Red Oak Realty team.

Originally from Sioux City, Iowa, Arron fell in love with the Bay Area and decided to make it his permanent home in 1998. During the process of buying his own home in Berkeley, he realized that there wasn’t an online resource that helped tech-savvy families get connected to what was happening within their neighborhoods. Determined to fix that, Arron started Your Berkeley as a way to share his enthusiasm and love for the Berkeley community.

Whether you are visiting or new to Berkeley, Your Berkeley is your starting point for experiencing the best that our community has to offer. Head back to the home page.
