Specializing In These Neighborhoods

Leimert Park

What I consider the heart of South LA, Leimert Park is truly a cultural mecca.  It's full of amazing Spanish style homes, caring neighbors, treelined streets and even has it's own village with shops, art galleries, a theatre and much more! You'll be hard pressed to find a block that doesn't have a block club captain. This is a real neighborhood where people look out for each other, take pride to beautify celebrate it.  The neighborhood has been transforming over the last few years to accommodate the construction of the Crenshaw Metro line.

Baldwin hills

A residential community and affluent neighborhood in the South region of Los Angeles, California. It is located in the namesake Baldwin Hills range overlooking the Los Angeles Basin and the lower plain immediately to the north.  Much like its neighboring areas View Park and Windsor Hills, Baldwin Hills is now sought  aggressively as a neighborhood of choice for its stylish ranch style homes, many that have pools, and its breathtaking cityscape views of downtown and West Los Angeles. Baldwin Hills is within walking distance of recently redesigned Kenneth Hahn Park, with hiking trails that connect all the way to the Culver City scenic overlook. 

view park/windsor hills

Traditionally known as one of the most affluent African American communities in America, but now shifting to one of the most desirable communities to live in the Los Angeles Area. The two neighborhoods are part of a band of neighborhoods, from Culver City's Fox Hills district on the west to the Los Angeles neighborhood of Leimert Park on the east, with one of the largest, wealthiest, and most well-educated geographically contiguous upper-class communities in the western United States. There is a superb collection of houses and mansions in the Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean styles, most of which remain today. View Park architecture features the work of many notable architects, such as the Los Angeles Investment Company, Postle & Postle, R. F. Ruck, Paul Haynes, Leopold Fischer, H. Roy Kelley, Raphael Soriano, Charles W. Wong, Robert Earl, M.C. Drebbin, Vincent Palmer, Theodore Pletsch and Homer C. Valentine. It is also rumored that renown African American architect, Paul Williams had built several homes in View Park.

park mesa

Just south of Vernon, Park Mesa rests below Leimert Park, but is complete with a surprising wealth of craftsman and traditional style homes dotted with palm tree-lined streets. Many of the lots are bigger than the neighboring ones in Leimert, and as the next area of choice for redevelopment, there are already the budding rumors of Roy Choi’s LOCOL setting up shop. Construction is already underway for the new Metro rail running down Crenshaw which will eventually connect at Florence Blvd. to the airport.

inglewood

A city in southwestern Los Angeles County, California, southwest of downtown Los Angeles and home of the popular L.A. forum. Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park is currently under construction in Inglewood and when completed around 2019 will be the new home of both the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers.

jefferson park

The Jefferson Park neighborhood is perhaps one of the City’s best examples of the remainder of the street-car era and influx of the craftsman era. Many of the single-story bungalows still maintain their original design and charm, making the many streets of this vast district instantly charming. A significant number of Jefferson Park houses were built using prefabricated kits or plan books produced by the likes of Sears and Pacific Ready-Cut Homes. Jefferson Park found instant favor with African American and Japanese American families having survived most of the racial discrimination set in from the 40s.  And while the neighborhood today is more diverse, many of the business and institutions along Adams and Jefferson Boulevards and Western Avenue, within the HPOZ, reflect the contributions of these cultures to the community.
