Arcata is where my wife Heather and our two daughters, ages 6 and 8, call home, and I'm going to gush a little or a lot about how much we love our town! And how amazing it is to be raising our family here, with first and foremost excellent and highly rated schools, a gorgeous Redwood forest at the top overlooking "Bayview" and adjacent to Humboldt State University, and blocks from our own home, an incredible bay and marsh/trail system at the bottom, and a Plaza and wonderful parks like Stewart, Healthsport and the Arcata Community Center interspersed between. I'm going to stop here, but if you'd like more detail and info about how great life is here and how perfect Arcata is to raise a family please reach out to me and I will share my thoughts with you.
My website has the best Arcata real estate search available. It is easy-to-use and updated by the Humboldt Association of Realtor’s every 15 minutes. If you are looking for a home in Arcata, the market for super premium homes, (like the one we are trying to find you!) moves very quickly with some homes selling in a day or two or before they go on the market. So I would definitely recommend that you also sign up on Zillow for text and email updates for Arcata homes, and include Bayside and Fickle Hill if you are also interested in those areas. While you are there please read my reviews and look at my profile to learn more about me and my service.
