So you’re thinking of moving? 

Whether you’re new to the area or already a resident of sunny Southern California, here’s four of our top pick locations when it comes to buying a property in Los Angeles. 

Forget looking for a ‘humble’ abode when it comes to these affluent neighbourhoods, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with some of the wealthiest homeowners in the world!


Kicking if off with a favourite for the wealthy and well-known, Calabasas. Buying property here means you’ll be neighbours with some of the word’s most famous celebrities though you won’t exactly be ,rubbing shoulders’ with them, as this pristinely gated community is gated and therefore extremely private. If you are looking for seclusion of grandeur then this is the neighbourhood for you! An active yet reserved lifestyle is encouraged here with everything you need for a wholesome family life, from equestrian trails for horse riding to a man made lake for water-sports. It’s based outside of Los Angeles but close enough to drive in for the action should you need to. 

Pacific Palisades

With stunning ocean views and the impressive hiking trails of Will Rogers Historic State Park and Temescal Gateway Park, Pacific Palisades is how rich people do the suburbs. Though this neighbourhood is now a polished residential area, what’s so unique about it is the eclectic mix of generations and wealth as the area has grown in popularity and size throughout the years. 

If you’re looking for a safe, family orientated area without feeling like it’s miles away from civilisation then Pacific Palisades would suit you swimmingly 😉

It’s minutes away from Santa Monica with a similar active and carefree lifestyle just without the tourists.


Another favourite area of ours to buy right now is Beverlywood. Right on the border of Beverly Hills this centrally located residential area has been named one of the best places to live in California. Crime is low and the quiet mountainous streets and cul-de-sacs are the perfect setting for the well-kept lawns and pristine property fronts. It’s a perfect place to raise a family, there’s 3 private parks including a fountain park and schools here are above average. Beverlywood is exactly the area we’d think of when looking to buy our ‘forever home’. 

Hollywood Hills

The star-studded neighbourhood of Hollywood Hills is always going to appear in a list of best places to live in Los Angeles. The homes here really are a cut above the rest when it comes to opulence and the vast majority of them also boast an outstanding view. Living here is what dreams are made of, with a lifestyle that’s unrivalled and a geotag that’s world widely associated with luxury. The location couldn’t be better if you want to be right in the thick of things when it comes to LA’s iconic monumental streets, strips and boulevards.
