Our client, a life-long renter, architect and structural engineer was looking for fixer that he that he could perform a major renovation on. He wanted to be in an urban “suburban” neightborhood—a residential neighborhood walking distance to shops, restaurants, and happening spots around town. He wasn’t sure what part of town he wanted to live in, as long as the neighborhood, price, and renovation opportunity fit his criteria. We searched properties in Venice, Santa Monica, West LA, Silver Lake, Highland Park, and Eagle Rock. He ended up with the perfect fixer in West LA, single family residence in the ever so popular “Little Osaka” area, walking distance to the numerous restaurants, shops, and markets on Sawtelle Blvd., and is now working on plans to build his dream home.
