About The City of Belmont

Belmont, meaning “beautiful mountain” in French, is a peninsula community halfway between San Francisco and San Jose. Situated primarily on the hills overlooking San Francisco Bay and the coastal range, the area is abundant in trees, vast canyons and gorgeous wooded hillsides. Homes are nestled throughout, reflecting a solid residential base.

The small, but busy downtown has easy access to freeway and rail transportation and is a mix of locally owned shops and commercial shopping. The population of approximately 25,000 works in San Mateo County with only 17% commuting elsewhere. There are excellent private and public schools with exceptionally high test scores and one of the few peninsula Universities in Notre Dame De Namur on the site of the historic Ralston Mansion.

Belmont has a rich heritage of fine homes from the turn of the twentieth century. During the late 1990s housing demand increased dramatically, in large part due to the growth of the nearby headquarters of Oracle Corporation. Belmont continues to enjoy the security of a very low crime rate, less than one-fifth the national average.
