A Small Village in the Heart of Silicon Valley

J+J Team Home Properties

Tree-lined streets and a small village atmosphere characterize Los Altos.  Los Altos is located in the heart of world famous Silicon Valley with a population of 30,878. Los Altos is 40 miles south of San Francisco and at the eastern edge of San Mateo County.  Many Los Altos homes fetch $4 million and higher, putting the city at No. 9 on Forbes’ “Most Expensive ZIP Codes in America” list in late 2021.

City of Los Altos
Calendar of Events

Los Altos is a residential community served by seven small retail districts.  It strives to maintain a semi-rural atmosphere. The civic center sits in the middle of an orchard, a remnant of those that once covered the area. The downtown is a triangle with arterials on all sides that enable most through traffic to bypass Main Street.

Scientific Claim to Fame

Los Altos may have a legitimate claim to having the first scientifically designed sound baffle in 1970. Santa Clara County undertook a seminal study to calculate the effects of alternate sound wall designs along Foothill Expressway. The resulting wall brought about the predicted reduction of seven to ten decibels in noise pollution levels experienced by adjacent homes.

Public Schools

The seven-square-mile city is developed with small businesses, schools, libraries and churches. Los Altos and Mountain View high schools are consistently ranked in the top 1% of high schools nationally. In the MVLA district, 98 percent of the graduates matriculate to college.
