Mar Vista Real Estate
The Mar Vista neighborhood is near the heart of Los Angeles’ Westside, neighboring Santa Monica, Palms, Venice, Culver City, and Del Rey. It is a diverse city of single-family homes and apartment buildings. The hilly area known as “Mar Vista Hill” near the Santa Monica border have spectacular ocean views that give Mar Vista its name and hold some of the most expensive land in the community. Consisting of approximately 55 thousand residents, it is less densely populated compared to its adjacent cities, allowing you to escape typical LA congestion. Our Team Leader, Sherri, was a founding member of the Mar Vista Historical Society adding to The Noel Team’s expertise in this area.
