Welcome to Sherman Oaks

A vibrant neighborhood with a cool, suburban feel


Nestled in the San Fernando Valley, you’ll find the beautiful neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. This lush area includes part of the Santa Monica Mountains. Because of this, residents can enjoy all the metropolitan benefits of the San Fernando Valley while enjoying a quiet neighborhood with a suburban feel and a lower population.

Sherman Oaks is a walkable, family-friendly neighborhood. The streets are tree-lined and shady, inviting long walks or jogs in friendly areas. There are dozens of fine-dining restaurants, delis, ethnic eateries, unusual boutiques, independent shops, art galleries, museums, spas, and theaters. Residents enjoy countless amenities, and public transportation and schools are excellent. The housing includes luxury villas, older estates, and ranch homes, spacious newer homes, opulent condominiums, and upscale townhouses.
