About Folsom


Folsom welcomes visitors with wonderful recreational opportunities, excellent dining experiences, and a wide variety of shopping destinations.

The crystal clear waters of the American River feed into Folsom Lake, providing fresh water for the region and endless opportunities for water sports or quiet contemplation.  Miles of biking and jogging trails wind through Folsom’s neighborhood greenbelts, connecting to the American River Bike Trail, which extends all the way to the Golden State’s capital city,Sacramento.

Folsom offers wonderful recreational activities right in your backyard.  There’s Folsom Lake, Lake Natoma and the American River with boating, water skiing, swimming, hiking, biking on the American River bike trail, horseback riding, and fishing.

The Sutter Street historic district has 80+ shops and restaurants, big box stores and the upscale Palladio at Broadstone, (the 54 acre open-air mall) plus Folsom Premium Outlets is available for those who enjoy shopping.

Folsom Parks and Recreation offers activities for all ages.  The Folsom Zoo is a favorite with families. There are concerts in Folsom City Lions Park in June and July and Wednesday night concerts in June at Palladio.

Features of interest in the City’s Civic Center include the Folsom Community Center, the Folsom Public Library, the Gallery at 48 Natoma, the Folsom Senior Center, sports fields, a picnic area and gazebo, and more. The animals at the adjacent Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary charm and educate youngsters and the young at heart.

Rich in history

The Folsom Historical Society hosts a number of museums in the Historic District, including the Museum of Wonder & Delight and the Folsom Pioneer Village.  Down the road from Sutter Street, visitors hear tales of prisoners and their guards from a retired prison guard at the Folsom Prison Museum, located in front of the grounds of the notorious California prison itself.

Dawn and Manny have been helping our extended family through multiple purchases/sells and they have been absolutely a pleasure to work with through the entire process. They are always available, friendly and extremely supportive. We are not local and they have been incredibly helpful with multiple FaceTime house viewings and final walkthrough with the seller, since we couldn't always be present in person, going out of their way to help us buy our new perfect home.

Our experience with Dawn and Manny to sell our home in El Dorado Hills was exceptional. Everything they shared with us about their approach in preparing to list our home (inspection, decluttering, staging), creating marketing materials (video, flyers, showing the home), negotiating the final deal and finalizing all the paperwork were accomplished in a collaborative and professional manner. Dawn and Manny are wonderful individuals who we enjoyed spending time with throughout the process. We highly recommend Dawn and Manny!

Ande was wonderful to work with and was instrumental in finding us the perfect home for our family for many, many years to come. Her knowledge of the areas we were looking at and what we liked after only a few meetings was exceptional. She was extremely patient with us (we changed our mind a lot) and she and her team genuinely cared about finding us the right home. I’m pretty sure they were as excited as we were when we found it! We’ve been in our home a few weeks now and couldn’t be happier! The only bad thing is that I miss talking to Ande everyday. 🙂

when I first started looking for a home to purchase, it was a bit overwhelming but right when I had Ande by myside helping me along with the whole process it lifted a huge weight off my shoulders and made the whole home purchasing experience amazing and exciting for me. I highly recommend Ande Salazar to all my friends and business associate as the best real estate in the greater Sacramento county area.

Our house sold in one day, over asking. Manny and Dawn's prep work, use of social media, knowledge of the market, outstanding photographer, and overall professionalism, were the reason. I have recommended, and will continue to recommend Manny and Dawn to my friends.
