San Francisco may get all the hype, but Oakland's where it’s at. Anyone familiar with the East Bay can attest to Oakland’s remodeling renaissance. The city is not only eco-conscious, thriving and hard at work, but it’s evolving every day. The homes of Oakland are an eclectic blend of old and new, Victorian and urban, Craftsman and contemporary, traditional and LEED-certified. To the visitor and local homeowner alike, Oakland is a sight to be seen.
The Bay, and much of California for that matter, is a national pioneer in green energy efficiency. Home solar power installations have sprung up in all corners of Oakland, setting an example of sustainable remodeling for the rest of the country. Indeed, our homes are a testament to that dedication—there have been more energy-efficient replacement windows, HVAC systems, siding, and solar installations in Oakland than nearly any other city in the country. All types of Oakland contractors, remodeling companies and developers continue to revitalize the East Bay.

And don’t get me started on the cool factor. In a city where each neighborhood holds distinct pockets of diversity and cultural flavor, there is always something new to explore. Take Uptown Oakland, where you can sample the best fried-chicken sandwich this side of the Mississippi, marvel at new paintings at Oakland’s famous Art Murmur event, and check out the brightly painted historic homes in Old Oakland -- all in a day’s work. Or, for a view you won’t forget, cruise on up into Oakland Hills, where some of the most incredible home architecture sits before a backdrop of the entire Bay Area—the Golden Gate Bridge included.
This isn’t just a place to pass through on your way to San Francisco. It’s a place to kick back, get some sun and marvel at the diversity of Oakland’s inhabitants. From Berkeley’s fabulous tie-dyed folks to East Oakland’s artist warehouses and collectives, there’s a magnetic pull here that keeps the cool kids coming back. We live here, we love it here, and we maintain our homes to reflect that spirit of revival. The East Bay is about life, culture, and diversity, and we at CalFinder are proud to call it home.
