The Richmond is where you’ll find people at work — lowering a load of merchandise onto a street-level elevator, or checking out customers at Green Apple Books.
Welcome to Richmond
It’s where you’ll hear Mandarin and Russian mingling with your own voice. This is the Inner Richmond, a smorgasbord of colors and sounds, just enough removed from the center of the city to comfortably house you and your family for the long run.
The Richmond, anchored by its twin central commercial streets, Geary and Clement, is a neighborhood of great dynamism and diversity. There is true “something for everyone” in Inner Richmond.

What to Expect
Hidden gem restaurants and a frenzied city pace.
For many, Inner Richmond is exactly what they want from city living; the hubbub of daily life leaves residents invigorated and wanting more. They expect to see all kinds of people every day on Clement Street and can spend an entire year exploring all of the ethnic restaurants in their neighborhood.
Urban and pedestrian-friendly with proximity to major outdoor recreation spaces.
Here in Inner Richmond, the residents take “act locally” seriously. They do their shopping on Clement Street, their drinking on Geary, and their hiking in The Presidio. This is a neighborhood full of nooks and crannies, the types best explored with a local.
A different kind of modern San Francisco.
Those looking for a flashy, picture-postcard San Francisco won’t find that in this neighborhood. Yet ethnic food enthusiasts and urban hikers alike flock here, a neighborhood that maintains its ties to the old city while embracing the new.
A diverse housing market is on the rise.
This is a neighborhood of mixed housing options; it’s much easier to find an apartment or condominium here for under $2 million. Overall, though, the area’s appreciation has outpaced the city’s since 2000.
