Brentwood & West LA

Brentwood is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

Welcome to Brentwood and West L.A.

Secluded luxury homes, world-class dining, and L.A.’s iconic nightlife

Brentwood is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Los Angeles, bordered by Pacific Palisades and the even ritzier Bel-Air neighborhood. Brentwood is a quiet community full of modern, luxurious homes hidden behind tall, ornate gates and lush gardens. It’s not as densely populated as the rest of the metropolitan area. You’ll have quick access to the freeways, the beaches, and the Santa Monica Mountains.

West L.A. sits in the middle of the beaches and downtown. You’ll find single-family homes and resort-style condominiums closer to Los Angeles’s most iconic nightlife. Sunset Strip is full of historic music venues and famed hotel lounges. Lively sports bars and nightclubs line Santa Monica Boulevard. Melrose Avenue is dotted with boutique shops, bohemian cafes, and chic eateries.

Though it’s next to the hustle and bustle of West L.A., Brentwood retains much of its residential charm. It’s a quieter and more laid-back neighborhood where long-time residents know each other. West L.A. gives a mix of professional and social appeal. Residents are more active, spend more time outdoors, and stay out late into the night.
