Welcome to Beverly Hills
Southern California’s most famous and glamorous luxury neighborhood
On Los Angeles’ glamorous West Side, Beverly Hills is one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world, not to mention home to some of its most famous people as well. Located practically right at the midway point between downtown Los Angeles, the beaches of Santa Monica, and the Santa Monica Mountains, Beverly Hills provides a perfectly situated luxurious enclave for all Los Angeles has to offer.
Despite its name, Beverly Hills, the area is mostly flat and was originally a lima bean farm. In the early 1900s, a group of investors bought the land hoping to strike oil. Unable to find black gold, they decided to subdivide it and sell it as residential lots, eventually creating one of America’s golden communities. From the start, the neighborhood was marketed as an exclusive and luxury suburb. With the growth of nearby Hollywood, it quickly became home to prominent entertainers and businessmen. Downtown Beverly Hills is home to great shopping and dining, including the famous shops of Rodeo Drive, Spago by Wolfgang Puck, and the more casual Wally’s.

Beverly Hills is unapologetically flashy and luxurious. Most of the neighborhood’s mansions and multi-story homes are in the quiet residential area known as the Flats, located between Santa Monica Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. The most luxurious and exclusive homes are secluded on the hills north of Sunset Boulevard.
The heart of Beverly Hills is in the downtown area known as the Golden Triangle. This mecca of upscale entertainment lies in an area of a few blocks enclosed by Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, and Crescent Drive. On the streets around Rodeo Drive, you’ll find designer clothes, high-end dining, and the most refined classic, vintage, and modern cars lining the streets. South of Wilshire Boulevard, you’ll find more shopping and dining along with more modest homes.
