Fremont Real Estate 

Fremont is a community unique in the Bay area, in that it is composed of five separate smaller towns that were previously established in the area.   As such, it has combined the uniqueness of each of these towns into its larger presence.  In 1956, Fremont was incorporated as a result of a merger with Centerville, Niles, Mission San Jose, Irvington and Warm Springs.  It is a very large city as a result of this combination.  With 220,000 residents, Fremont is the 4th most populous city in the San Francisco Bay area, and centrally located to serve residents who may work in San Jose to the south or Silicon Valley to the west.
