Where to Live in Los Angeles | Los Angeles Westside

When determining where to live in Los Angeles, keep your lifestyle in mind. Are top-rated schools or privacy a concern? Are city views or ocean views a priority? Will you be happiest situated a short commute from work in a vibrant urban area filled with street life, public transportation, coffee shops, parks, and restaurants? Would you trade walkability for a commute and more square footage and a large yard? Or do you want the best of both worlds?  Whatever your needs, the Realtors of Gaskill+Peterson are here to help you find the best Los Angeles neighborhood for your lifestyle.

The detailed property listing of each property is accompanied by information from Walk Score, which gives you an overview of the neighborhood and schools as well as the distance to the closest restaurant, coffee shop, grocery store, dry cleaner, gym, bar, park, public transportation, and more.
