welcome to Hollister


We call it home! 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, while being one of the fastest growing communities in California during the past decade, 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.

Located in San Benito County, Hollister is served by major California highways and has one of the few remaining executive airports in the country.

Open, accessible, and friendly - the people of Hollister and the land can bring it home for you.
