Hillcrest Real Estate

Located just north of downtown San Diego and adjacent to beautiful Mission Hills, Hillcrest is one of San Diego’s most diverse neighborhoods offering urban living with a village feeling.  Apartments and condominiums are plentiful here, with a smaller percentage of single-family homes.  Hillcrest is a colorful and diverse community brimming with coffee shops, bars, restaurants, and boutiques.  Streets are lined with antique stores, specialty shops, bookstores and specialty food outlets. The area is the center of San Diego's vibrant gay and lesbian community hosting the Gay Pride parade and other events.

There are still a number of craftsman style houses in Hillcrest, many dating from the early 1900s.  In recent years, the price of these homes has increased dramatically but Hillcrest still offers great value with countless secure condominium and apartment complexes, many of which have recently been rebuilt.  With neighboring downtown the site of numerous high-end condominium developments, Hillcrest has become an increasingly desirable neighborhood for those seeking the amenities of city life.
