Brentwood is a personel fav of mine. I lived there several times. There is health food shops, trendy clothing shops, coffee shops, excellent resturants, workout gyms, and pretty much all the things you might need from day to day.
I have worked in this area for over 26 years, and know it like the back of my hand. The proximty to the shops, beaches, santa monica, palisades, views of the ocean in the hills etc makes it a VERY, VERY disirable place to live. It is just a beautiful ,and peaceful place to be.
Let me know if I can be any help on your searches to the amazing area. If you tell me what you are looking for I can tell what area would most likely be for you in this amazing community.
Feel free to call me anytime if you need any information on current listings.
