Living in the San Fernando Valley
The San Fernando Valley, commonly referred to as “The Valley,” is home to more than 1.75 million people. Much of it falls within the boundaries of the City of Los Angeles, though there are several incorporated cities within the valley, including:
- Hidden Hills
- San Fernando
Several of the areas of the San Fernando Valley that are part of Los Angeles are known by their neighborhood names, such as:
- Sherman Oaks
- Universal City
- Granada Hills
- North Hollywood
- Studio City
- Woodland Hills
The communities of the San Fernando Valley run across the spectrum of socio-economic classes, from low-income working-class neighborhoods, primarily in the northern and northeastern areas of the Valley, to wealthy communities with high-end real estate along the northern slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains. Large swaths of the Valley were developed in the post-War housing boom in the middle of the 20th century, with single story homes on relatively small lots in family-friendly neighborhoods, and the area has served as the scene for countless television shows and movies depicting the typical American neighborhood. If you have not yet chosen the area of the Valley where you want to find your new home, we can work with you to explore the area and select the ideal neighborhood for you and your family.
Schools in the San Fernando Valley
With the exception of the community of West Hills, the San Fernando Valley falls under the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), a district which is the second-largest in the nation and which includes more than 650 schools. In addition to the public school system, there is a seemingly endless list of private schools ranging from religious to secular and including many that focus on arts-based education and other specialties. Beyond secondary education, students in the San Fernando Valley can matriculate to California State University, Northridge or to one of the many community colleges in the area.
Parks and Outdoor Living in the San Fernando Valley
Though it is known nationwide as being part of the urban sprawl of Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley offers a surprising array of opportunities for outdoor recreation, and thanks to its Southern California climate, it offers these opportunities year-round.

Furthermore, the hills surrounding the Valley feature many open space areas with trails for hiking, running or mountain biking.
