CNN.MONEY.COM ranks Irvine at the TOP of the “best cities in America” list!
The CNN study looked at places where large portions of the population worked in anticyclical industries such as government, health care, education, agriculture, and legal services.
Our own OC city, IRVINE, ranked #4!
Long before developers embraced the idea of mixed-use communities, there was Irvine. It was born in the 1960s, when the University of California commissioned architect William Pereira to design a new campus and town. Today, its population hovers around 200,000, yet it feels much smaller thanks to its tight-knit neighborhoods and more than 16,000 acres of green space.
Families say Irvine is pretty close to perfect
. The school district has \won national recognition for stellar test scores, innovative curriculums, year-round schedules and open-style classrooms. The university is the city’s largest employer, but some two dozen companies, from Google, Gateway to St. John’s Knits, also call Irvine home.
In addition to being one of the best cities in America, Irvine leads the pack for one of the safest cities America by the FBI, for the last 3 consecutive years.Although the cost of housing may be higher than other neighboring cities, home prices have held up better than those elsewhere in Orange County and foreclosures are few and far between. Irvine would be an outstanding city to purchase your dream home, raise your family, and bask in the comfort and security of knowing your investment is safe.
