Sherman Oaks is much like its San Fernando Valley neighbor, Encino: a quiet LA suburb that allows for city convenience with small town peacefulness. High-end malls and a smattering of hip boutiques and restaurants are a draw for the families who call Sherman Oaks home, and the neighborhood has a reputation for being part of the affluent area of the Valley.

Manicured and amenity-rich. Sherman Oaks has all the comfort and convenience of an affluent suburb—clean streets, upscale malls, and multiple parks make for easy living.

Nestled right at the convergence of the 101 and 405 freeways, Sherman Oaks’ location allows for easy jaunts to the west and east, or even further north to Ojai or Santa Barbara for a lovely weekend getaway..
