Woodland Hills Real Estate Broker & REALTOR®

[by Jason Ian Hector, 10/16/2015] Probably the most rapidly developing area in the San Fernando Valley is the Woodland Hills area with the expansion of the Village at Westfield Topanga being a centerpiece.  There are several new construction properties for purchase and lease as well.  Woodland Hills offers a unique city vibe because it's high rise business district as well as a great residential areas. Woodland Hills is located in the southwestern area of the San Fernando Valley, with Warner Center business district in its northern section. Running east-west through the community is the 101 Freeway (Ventura) and Ventura Boulevard whose western terminus is at Valley Circle Boulevard in Woodland Hills.  I have had tremendous success with short sales and purchasing REO properties in West Hills having sold a property on Bobbyboyar, Hackney and Rudnick.

Currently, Woodland Hills is undergoing major development with several multi unit residential projects in and around Warner Center.  The historical background of Woodland Hills rests in the story of Rancho El Escorpion. The rancho was first owned by three Indians and a Spaniard, title for most of it eventually passed to Miguel Leonis a Basque who came to the Valley in 1858. Within a short time after he arrived he married a widow whose father, Odon, had been one of the rancho's original owners.  Woodland Hills is also the home of Los Angeles Pierce College. This community college opened September 1947, and had its beginning as an agricultural school. While it continues to be known for its excellent agricultural and animal husbandry programs, Pierce's students can now take a wide range of academic and professional subjects there in a rural setting. Pierce College is also the site of the farm market, haunted house, petting zoo and many other fun activities for the family.

Woodland Hills is a community of gently rolling hills and luscious trees. In the early 1920’s, a developer planted over 120,000 eucalyptus, sycamore, fir, pine and pepper trees to lure prospective buyers. During the Great Depression, Harry Warner, of Warner Bros. Pictures, bought 1,000 acres to breed thoroughbred horses. When Warner liquidated his real estate holding in fifty years later, many corporations and financial institutions put down roots in the area, creating one of the most densely populated business centers in the world.  Woodland Hills offers several community events throughout the year including the Warner Center Park Music Festival, Art Shows and Movie Nights.

Warner Center contains many low rise office buildings, as well as several high rise skyscrapers, notably three that are all in the same lot of land (all three being zoned out for commerce). There is also some residential and industrial, as well as some retail such as the Westfield Promenade. The western-most stop of the Orange Line Transit way ends at the transit hub of the same name on Owensmouth Street, in between Erwin and Oxnard streets.
