District 6

The Western Addition

A historically African American neighborhood, the Western Addition boasts the Fillmore District, the “Harlem of the West” home to jazz greats of the 20th century, and the historic Japantown enclave, representing two of the more significant cultural corridors in the City. Glorious Victorians and Edwardians mix with newer construction, and the area is an eclectic and busy mix of old and new San Francisco: tech sector professionals live alongside young families and senior citizens, while nearby dining areas boast some of the City’s most innovative chefs.


A varied, diverse, and welcoming part of the City, NOPA (North of the Panhandle) centers along the Divisadero Street corridor, with its rich array of restaurants and cafes, unique retail, legacy entertainment venues, and more. NOPA is just downslope from iconic Alamo Square and its globally famous Painted Ladies, and steps from the Panhandle and the eastern entrance of Golden Gate Park. Area property is a rich mix of apartment houses, single family homes, tenancies in common, and condos.

Hayes Valley

Hayes Valley has enjoyed a 21st century renaissance, evolving into a diverse and welcoming community of retirees, young families, single professionals, and longtime neighborhood residents. Home to Alamo Square, some of the most exquisitely preserved Victorian homes in all of San Francisco can be found in Hayes Valley. Single family homes, condos, and duplexes are the principal residential property types in the area; price points remain both competitive and high. Hayes Valley also features unparalleled shopping and dining, outdoor space along Patricia’s Green, and walkable proximity to the City’s legacy performing arts venues.
