To me, Echo Park represents the Eastside at its best, a diverse, colorful neighborhood full of energy, pop-up boutiques, amazing restaurants, coffee shops, inventive graffiti murals and lots of exciting real estate (with prices fast on the rise). Flanked by Silver Lake to the west and Downtown to the east, Echo Park is where I spend most of my days when not in New York, and it has a walkable, village feel not unlike Brooklyn.

Hip, urban, contemporary, family friendly, pet friendly, walkable, unique – these are all words I’ve heard used to describe my amazing neighborhood, the Westside community of Playa Vista. Located between Marina del Rey, Westchester, Culver City and Playa del Rey, Playa Vista is one of the newest fully-planned communities in Southern California. With over 3,000 existing homes and hundreds more on the horizon, housing is just the beginning of what this amazing community has to offer.

As a lifelong resident of Manhattan Beach, I am proud to be a local in what is and has always been an amazing city. Manhattan Beach has changed dramatically in the last 15 years, and many of the old spots that made Manhattan Beach the off-the-radar, mom-and-pop store, surfer beach town it once was are now gone. Many people only know Manhattan the way it is seen today, with a multitude of highly rated restaurants, boutique hotels and high-end shops.

Located just 12 miles north of Santa Monica lies the once sleepy, rustic beach town known simply as the “Bu.” Malibu Beach is a 20-mile stretch of coastline that was once made famous by the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean. Most of the time, the “Bu” is still quiet and uncrowded – except for the summer months, when the affluent residents go on holiday and rent their beach houses for up to $100,000 per month.
