Bakersfield California Real Estate

        Homes for Sale in Bakersfield CA

Central Valley CA Bakersfield MapOur beautiful city of Bakersfield California came along with California's gold rush in 1851, and grew into a real town with the discovery of oil. Its history includes a certain Colonel Thomas Baker who settled early and founded a little side business feeding the horses of travelers from a field of alfalfa. He was apparently rather popular as the formal township of Baker's Field was incorporated in his honor in 1898. Our access to the railroad, airlines, a network of highways - and convenience to the mountains, coast, LA, and other nearby resort towns has made Bakersfield CA a great place to call home for everyone.

Bakersfield homes for sale are as varied as the topography of the land around it. The mild climate of the San Joachin Valley reflects its three surrounding mountain ranges - the Tremblor, Tehachapis, and the Sierra Nevadas. As the mountains tower around it, the Kern River runs through it and joins the nearby Lake Ming in providing water sports and recreational activities for the whole family. From white water rafting and camping to biking and hang gliding in the mountains, we have so much to do and see that our residents always have a variety of fun activities to choose from.
