Los Gatos, San Jose, and Silicon Valley Real Estate

Mary Pope-Handy, Realtor and real estate blogger covering Santa Clara County and adjacent areas

Welcome to, with info on Silicon Valley real estate

This site is part of a network of sites and blogs that I run, this one being the oldest and covering the broadest area (multiple counties in Silicon Valley / Bay Area), with a focus on home selling. 

Please also visit my other sites:

Mary Pope-Handy in Chicago Walnut RoomBrief Intro

Silicon Valley encompasses a broad region, including Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and a little of Alameda and Santa Cruz Counties.

Santa Clara County, now sometimes called "lower Silicon Valley", was once known as The Valley of Heart's Delight. This is where I focus my work in helping nice folks to buy and sell homes, but I do have experience throughout these counties and beyond.

Looking for information? I have a number of blogs, and between them there are over 2,000 articles on Silicon Valley real estate, neighborhoods, homes, and related tips for consumers. This one,, will cover Silicon Valley more broadly than my other sites (which seldom go beyond Santa Clara County), but also will include San Jose, Los Gatos, and nearby areas.

Of course, no website (no matter how comprehensive) can take the place of personal guidance and advice. I'd welcome the opportunity to connect with you, discuss your home buying or selling plans, and see if we might be able to work together.
