Sherman Oaks, California

Though only 8 square miles, Sherman Oaks packs a big punch. Unlike the rest of the San Fernando Valley, Sherman Oaks is a heavily urbanized area that is home to small skyscrapers, big business, and great shopping.  But just because it’s structured like a mini “Downtown Los Angeles” doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of quiet neighborhoods to find a home for you and your family.  What better place to lay down your own roots than a neighborhood that offers both a strong retail/restaurant corridor and yet is still full of parks and quiet residential streets?
