Services for Real Estate Pros with Property Services & Short Sale TC

Even though I'm a transplant I still love living in Southern California.  But with that in mind I realize that Cali has a lot of Top 10 rankings, especially the most polluted.  So here are the sad rankings of this Top 10.


  1. Bakersfield and Delano, California
  2. Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Riverside,  California
  3. Visalia and Porterville,  California
  4. Fresno and Madera,  California
  5. Pittsburgh and New Castle, Pennsylvania
  6. Modesto,  California
  7. Birmingham, Hoover, and Cullman, Alabama
  8. Phoenix, Mesa, and Glendale, Arizona
  9. San Diego, Carlsbad, and San Marcos,  California
  10. Sacramento, Arden, Arcade, and Yuba City,  California /Nevada

REPLY to Dave - We do have a lot of things in the works and implemented in terms of cleaning up the environment but it's still not enough.  Hopefully, it will get better:)


REPLY to Lindsey - I'm been to Minnesota and I have friends living there.  I do enjoy the city, food, and people.  But sad to say...yes, Cali has a lot of pollution.
