"Nob Hill, from a Local and Real Estate Professional's POV"

I live on Nob Hill right across from Grace Cathedral and I'm also a real estate professional specializing in this area.

What's not to love about Nob Hill? It's near everything. Minutes from Union Square, the Wesfield, the Embarcadero, Chinatown but residential enough: safe, quiet, family-friendly. it offers amazing views, safe walks, shopping options (Trader Joe's, Whole foods) and recreational activities of all kinds. In my experience, rent around the area ranges from $2500 to as much as you're willing to spend.

However, a distinction must be made between Nob Hill and Lower Nob Hill or "Tendernob". As you head downhill towards the Tenderloin, you may have to choose between affordable rents or the safety and quiet of Nob Hill. It is also not as family friendly. On the other hand, it offers a variety of nightlife options, restaurants and bars. Rent-wise, I've come across studios and 1 or 2 bedrooms from $1200 to $2000.

Hope this helps and I would love to be of assistance in the future. Have a lovely rest of 2013!!!
