One of the most walkable of the East Side neighborhoods and quite possibly the friendliest. Business is buzzing on Glendale Blvd with what seems to be a new store or restaurant opening monthly. Bike along the restored LA River or stroll down one of the tree-lined streets. We enjoy the breakfast burritos at Via Corona, the #10 at Indochine, and pretty much everything at Proof Bakery. It’s all about community here, so join in the fun at the Sunday Farmers’ Market or grab a seat at the communal tables at All’acqua, Canele, Viet Noodle Bar or The Village Bakery. Most homes priced from the low $600s to $1.1M.Take a Tour →
Probably the most diverse of the Eastside hoods with hipsters, artists, old timers and Dodger Blue calling it home. Sunset Blvd and Echo Park Ave are the lifelines — offering everything from homemade tamales to tattoos, organic produce to prize-winning pizza. Check out the lilies while jogging around the lake, ascend one of the steep staircases, or take in a game at Chavez Ravine. We’re down with a beer and peanuts at Gold Room, window shopping along the Sunset, and just about anything at Dinette. Watch out for hipsters blazing down Sunset on their fixies. Most homes priced from the mid $500s to $1.3M.Take a Tour →
Long considered the heart and soul of the Eastside, SilverLake continues to be renowned for all things hip. If you’re looking for action the bars, restaurants and shop around the Sunset Junction will feed your fix.
Or if you’re feeling mellow…grab a frisbee and head on over to the Meadow. Bare feet welcome but no dogs, BBQs or organized sports. People-watching around the Reservoir, house coffee at Cafe Tropical and the outdoor beer garden at Red Lyon are all things we enjoy. Don’t miss Silverlake Wine’s tastings, a dozen at L&E Oyster Bar and shopping at Yolk. Most homes priced from the $700s to $2.5M.
The Real Estate Mom
A Southern California native, Courtney graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Southern California.
She began her professional life as a producer of tv commercials and as a Hollywood studio executive. After Courtney completed her third home renovation, she was urged to consider a new career. So began a successful run in residential real estate which now spans more than two decades. Above all, she strives for exemplary customer service with a can-do spirit.
Courtney is a mother of two, a classically trained pianist, French speaker and never turns down a good meal.
Kurt, also born and raised in California, graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Communications.
He started his real estate career in West Seattle, where he was the number one realtor for the better part of a decade. After taking a two-year sabbatical, during which he traveled the world with his brother, Kurt landed in Los Angeles and has been practicing real estate in California ever since. He brings the life lessons he learned around the globe to his career, and is always certain to keep his priorities straight.
Kurt is a sucker for a killer bottle of wine and an afternoon game of golf (not in that order!).
