I’ve been living in the Millbrae Mills Estates area since 2006. At the time, my family was relocating back from a 4-year stay in Beijing, China, and were trying to decide where to move. My husband got a job in Brisbane, and when I looked into areas with good schools, we immediately came upon Millbrae as a great option. Having lived in the East Bay for many years prior to our move to China, I was familiar with Millbrae basically as the same vicinity of SFO. In any case, housing worked out perfectly for us, and it was the perfect place for us in terms of schools for our children and a great commute for my husband.
Many years later, my children have gone through Taylor Middle School & Mills High School, and I still love living here. Millbrae is the perfect combination of having a small town feel, while being ideally situated between San Francisco and Silicon Valley. We are very proud of the transit station, and there is a lot of planning going into developing that area to draw even more people to our area. Being in the Mills Estates area, we also have the added benefit of beautiful bay views from many of our homes (including being able to watch planes landing and taking off from SFO). It’s not difficult to be genuinely enthusiastic about buying and selling homes in SoMill, because I have a true appreciation for what this area has to offer.
