Pasadena is a lively mix of past and present. Steeped in history, the city manages to honor long-held traditions including the Tournament of Roses Parade while also embracing the future by being one of the major hubs of technology and innovation in Southern California and home to Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology. The city also has deep cultural history anchored by the Pasadena Playhouse and the Norton Simon Museum. 

Real Estate: Pasadena has a wide variety of single family homes for sale as well as condominiums, townhouses and apartments. Real estate can be classic, including many Craftsman, Tudor, and Spanish Revival homes but recent developments have also given the city a modern flair. From the quaint charmers of Bungalow Heaven to massive estate properties along Orange Grove Boulevard, Pasadena real estate truly offers a wide variety of options for any homebuyer.

Community Life: Community life in this area is rich and varied. Tour one of the local historic neighborhoods, stroll around Brookside Park, catch lunch or dinner at one of the many hot new restaurants, or attend a reading at legendary bookstore, Vroman’s. The Rose Bowl Flea Market, held on the second Sunday of each month is a treat for lovers of all sorts of collectibles. Beauty abounds with sites like The Gamble House and Pasadena’s City Hall. Fun for younger set includes Kidspace, one of the top-rated children’s museums in Southern California. Pasadena’s Convention Center also brings a wide variety of exhibits and shows to the area. Old Town provides not only shopping but a multitude of dining and nightlife options all within a few short blocks.

Education: The Pasadena Unified School District encompasses Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre with 17 elementary schools, five middle schools and four high schools. There are also a number of private and parochial schools in the area. The former campus of Ambassador College is now Maranatha High School, a college preparatory Christian private school. Other private schools include Mayfield Senior School, Chandler School, La Salle, and St. Francis. Other educational opportunities in Pasadena include the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Fuller Theological Seminary, Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Pacific Oaks College, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena City College, and Los Angeles Music Academy College of Music.
