Most Expensive Sonoma Neighborhoods
Sonoma is a somewhat small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 11,017 people and eight constituent neighborhoods, Sonoma is the 407th largest community in California.
Sonoma home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but Sonoma real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Sonoma is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 86.31% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Sonoma is a city of professionals, managers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sonoma who work in management occupations (14.67%), office and administrative support (13.35%) and teaching (8.01%).
Of important note, Sonoma is also a city of artists. Sonoma has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Sonoma’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Sonoma telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.58% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Sonoma is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
