About Us


At the turn of the century, Los Angeles' newly prosperous merchants created the first nearby suburbs: West Adams, south of downtown by the new University of Southern California campus, and Angelino Heights, just to the northwest. Here they built monumental mansions, soaring gingerbread Victorians and those new cutting-edge "modern" homes, Arts & Crafts Craftsman Bungalows.

Now, more than 100 years later, many of these venerable residences have new lives. We at City Living believe that the neighborhoods surrounding downtown aren't just reminders of a storied past. They are viable places to live, with affordable and charming homes, easy access to downtown, the studios, and the beach, and, most importantly, a sense of community. These communities' large, historic homes still give you more house for your money than anywhere else in Los Angeles.

City Living Realty has been the pre-eminent broker in the West Adams-USC area for a quarter century. City Living was the first real estate firm in Los Angeles focused specifically on the sales of Victorian, Arts & Crafts, Mission Revival, and other early 20th Century residences, from designated local and federal landmarks to the numerous intact and restorable vintage homes found throughout West Adams and Angelino Heights, Hancock Park adjacent and Highland Park. City Living itself is officed in a Victorian-era commercial building near the university.


City Living Realty has been the leader in promoting awareness of the unique and valuable architecture of the West Adams area. Twenty-five years ago, we began to educate homeowners and buyers of the special nature of our neighborhoods and of the need to actively pursue preservation of these characteristics in the face of development and remodeling threats.
