About the Location:

Hollister, a town with Central California independence and charm, was established by ranchers and   farmers in 1872. Throughout Hollister's history, people who have settled here have talked of being fortunate to reside in such a remarkable community.


Hollister is the largest community in San Benito County with a population of 36,599. Even though it  is one of the fastest growing communities in California during the past decade, the town still maintains the quality of living that has brought people here from around the world. Through natural disasters   and tough economic times, the people of Hollister have shown resilience and a special pride in  Community that is unsurpassed.


The land, like the people of Hollister, has strength and charm, far enough away from crowds to offer  very competitive prices for undeveloped property, yet close enough to city conveniences to share a   cosmopolitan atmosphere.
