It’s a funny thing about San Marino. For some of my clients this quiet, leafy neighbor to Pasadena and South Pas is the only place they want to live. Yet for others, the little city that hosts the Huntington Library & Gardens is entirely off their radar. So consider this character-filled, 1930 two-level Spanish home. At $1.3 million, it’s not in everyone’s price range. But add top-notch public schools through 12th Grade to the equation and I’d say that anyone who has kids or is planning on having them should consider what this house — and San Marino — have to offer.

There are original details, modern updates, and high-end appliances in a remodeled kitchen. Great outdoor spaces, too. But let’s get back to the schools. San Marino Unified is a small district with just two elementary, one middle, and one high school, all ranked among the very best in the state. They get major support from the community, have tons of parental involvement and — yep. Amazing test scores. So think of it this way…

PRIVATE SCHOOL: $18K/year (average) x 13 years (K-12) = $234,000

SAN MARINO UNIFIED: $0/year x 13 years = $0

And that’s just for one child. Say you have two kids — or more. My advice is, call me. It will be my pleasure to give you a first-hand tour of Pasadena’s beautiful and sophisticated neighbor, San Marino.
