The California Ranch is long and low, swinging out to capture the views, the light and the air of the glorious outdoors. This particular rancher follows the graceful curve of a wide street and faces the glorious Verdugo mountains. The back hugs a parklike setting with lawn, large pool, and private spa under the woods with a waterfall cascading nearby.
Over the fence is the Doctor’s House and Friendship TeaHouse- gated and secured features of Brand Park. Inside is a gracious floorpan with large formal rooms, vintage details, remodeled kitchen “great room” with access to the pool, cozy den with fireplace, and remodeled baths.
Pool cabana provides storage and flexibility. Other features include central heat and air and 200 amp electric service.
Things do not always go smoothly or as planned. DIGGS kept a cool head in the face of drama and closed with a second buyer for a higher net to the seller.
In the heart of prestigious Cumberland Heights is this romantic home with diamond paned leaded glass windows and a front porch dripping with flowering vines. Gleaming wood floors, gracious formal rooms, and a French Country kitchen hint at intimate dinners with friends.
Three bedrooms upstairs include 2 with built in storage walls, serene views of the mountains, and beautiful abundant light. Downstairs is a suite suitable for a master or separate mother in law quarters, with private entrance and full bath with dry sauna.
The backyard is breathtaking. There is just enough lawn, lacy shade trees, and a gated pool/spa area with waterfall that looks like a natural stone grotto. A stunning guest house faces the pool with double French doors, a soaring beamed ceiling room, fireplace and 3/4 bath.
Sold in 11 days for full asking price. This home was so fantastic, we just showed it in all its glory.
There is a certain quality of light that defines a beach house on the cape. The style is relaxed but refined, as your most interesting friends gather over a great bottle of wine in the warm formal living room or over the gourmet meal you whipped up in the spacious showcase kitchen.
Laughter fills the air as the kids tumble over themselves through the bright sunroom on the way to the pool and patio area. Later, you tend to your organic “secret” veggie garden before you retire to your airy bedroom tucked into the dormers of the second floor. The day closes with a nightcap sipped on your bedroom balcony watching the sunset color the San Gabriel mountains.
It is good to be home.

I have known and loved the McGinnis family for years. I was acquainted with them through Church, but I got to know them on my regular rounds through the neighborhood. I always made sure I had extra time when I knocked on their door- George would often invite me in and tell me stories of […]
I first met Robert and Emilie at an open house in La Crescenta. They knew they needed to get their kids into a different school district, but they loved their house and neighbors. Letting go was a process…. Robert is s occupational therapist and Emillie is a registered nurse. They have three children, Audrey and Nicholas, 10 and […]

You are finally ready to invest in a place of your own. You want someplace with personality and a cool vibe. You want an open air entrance, preferably with a little outdoor sitting area to call your own- no more dreary apartment buildings for you! Your place needs a lot of light- an end unit with extra windows is just the ticket. You love your master bedroom with ensuite bath and it’s nice to know there is a second bedroom and bath that is perfect for guests when they drop by.

There is room for another car even though you’ve got a couple of motorcycles, a workbench and a few surfboards in there. How did you ever live without your own garage? Cooking is going to be a blast in the updated kitchen- even better, Whole Foods and Smart and Final are moments away. Trader Joe’s is just a tiny bit further. You work really hard and it’s good to have a sweet place to relax- you flip on the fire in the fireplace, take a sip of a cold craft brew and sigh- this is home.

Large updated townhouse with private 2-car garage. Contact us to request a showing.
You love the sweet and easy lifestyle of townhouse living. At the end of a long day you pull into your spacious private garage and shut the door. Workout clothes get tossed in the wash and the bikes are stored for tomorrow’s ride. The Costco haul goes in the spacious cabinets. You take the perishables to the bright, remodeled kitchen, and let the kids snack at the kitchen table. They would prefer to be on the patio just outside, but it’s too hot. Today the central AC feels heavenly. Your partner is curled up in the step up den, the fireplace is turned on, despite the weather. Later, when your friends are over, you enjoy the wide open Living and Dining Rooms and how the recessed LED lights bounce off the wood floors. You are glad you only had to tidy the 1/2 bath downstairs- the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths are upstairs and private. After everyone leaves it is time to relax in your Master Suite. Clothes go in the walk in closet, your partner is enjoying the master bath and you are relaxing by the fireplace, the second one in the unit. Ah, this is the life.

Before I met Carin Hoffman, I worked with two other agents from two different companies. The first one was not a go-getter and quite frankly kind of lazy. The second one was very impatient and snappy and I felt like I was walking on eggshells. Then Carin came into the picture and everything changed! She […]
I first met Eric and Kathy in 2006 when a mutual friend (and past client) introduced us. I helped them buy their first home in North Hollywood. Eleven years later, Eric and Kathy tracked me down because they had decided to combine households with Kathy’s mother. They needed to find a suitable home to fit […]
Behind stucco and tasteful wrought iron is a magical abode where color and light create a tranquil get away.
Behind stucco and tasteful wrought iron is a magical abode. Moorish arches frame a protected front porch and a heavily leaded glass door beckons you inside. An enormous Living Room is anchored by an elaborately tiled fireplace on one end, and an interesting book case wall on the other. The people who live here are anything but boring! The formal Dining Room leads to a super cool kitchen with high, wood beamed ceilings, tons of light, storage and a commercial style stove. Three bedrooms include a lovely master with walk-in closet and remodeled en suite bath. The large hall bath is also remodeled. Creatives are drawn to the soul of this home, so an artist studio is a must! The garage is finished for use as a studio including french doors opening to the covered patio and backyard. The large basement adds tons of extra storage space. Highly anticipated NoHo West is just blocks away. Get in early and watch property values soar! Modern upgrades include copper plumbing, newer sewer line, central air and heat.
An elegant home designed by an Imagineer….
The last Imagineer (personally hired by Walt Disney) designed this house… a real life “It’s a Wonderful Life” home in Glendale. The two story Colonial style home sits on a tree-shaded avenue and is a seamless blend of elegant formal spaces and cheerful, open gathering spaces. A six bedroom house can be just about any configuration of living arrangements you can name, with two bedrooms downstairs (one is set up as a den and can be opened to the living room) and 4 bedrooms upstairs. Three baths ensure that no one should have to wait. The back of the house is one large and cheerful space containing a peninsula style kitchen, family room/eating area, walk-in pantry and laundry area. French doors lead to the entertaining deck and grassy garden area.
Sit. Relax. Listen to the breeze. Float away to the sounds of the running fountain.
You want peace and quiet. You love a real “neighborhood”, but prefer to see nothing but the verdant trees and hear little other than the breeze and the birds. Welcome to a remodeled contemporary home that enjoys almost complete privacy. The open floor plan features large formal spaces, well appointed kitchen and baths, and large home theater that could serve as a 4th bedroom suite. The master suite features lavish bath and walk in closet. Numerous skylights light most rooms during the day, and all LED lighting takes over at night. A 5.88 kw solar electric system means low, low utilities! The nearly carefree yard features large entertainment deck, sheltered sitting porch and separate yard (currently a kid’s yard) down below. One of the generous bedrooms features a solarium wall, perfect as the ideal home office amongst the trees. Highly coveted Verdugo Woodlands Elementary, Dad’s Club and Montrose Shopping Park are all nearby.
Everyone wants to hang out here. Fun is here. Love is here. Tranquility is here. A good life is here.
There is an alluring mystery to an architectural Spanish hidden behind glorious bougainvillea and magnificent Japanese Maple. Located on a quiet street in the coveted Rossmoyne area, GoodLife DIGGS starts with a trestle beam ceiling Living Room, stepped up formal Dining Room, and a rare and coveted original glass ceiling center Atrium featuring a vintage tile water fountain. You can feel the quality of the maintenance- this is a home for living, not endless weekend projects. The kitchen has been opened up and remodeled, and each bath is remodeled, one with a spa style tub. One of the generous bedrooms is styled as a TV room and den, and leads to a structural covered patio. Entire summers are spent here, visiting with friends as the host whips up a BBQ feast in the outdoor BBQ Kitchen. Above this patio is probably the most defining feature- a full one bedroom guest house with separate entrance- everyone wants one, but so few exist!

Kendyl is excellent! She kept us informed of the sale of the home and advised us appropriately every step of the way through texts, phone calls, and emails. I appreciated the emails from Simone about reminders and what to expect along the way. Overall Kendyl was professional and attentive to our needs and handled us […]
Had a great experience under some what trying circumstances.
She put us at ease right away by being honest and straightforward about what our house was worth. If it weren’t for Simone and Stan and the rest of the crew helping us pack and clean our house in those last few days, we would have never gotten out of there.
We met with Kendyl and appreciated that she was clear and concise. There was nothing unanswered and she had a lot of knowledge of the area. Everything during the sale of our house exceeded our expectations. I’ve enjoyed working with Carin and Simone and all the others. They were all very helpful. The whole process […]
Kendyl Young is a friend. Because I know her so well and trust the level of her integrity, I have referred her to more than 20 people over the last 20 years. As expected, when it came down to handling my Real estate needs, her skills far exceeded any expectations that I could have ever […]
We walked away feeling assured that our home would be in good hands with a wonderful family. We would highly recommend Kendyl for the purchase or sale of your home. She and her excellent staff will take good care of you.
