Encino, California – A Great Place to Live and Invest in Real Estate

History of Encino

Encino is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, California. It is located in the central portion of the southern San Fernando Valley and on the north slope of the Santa Monica Mountains. Encino is surrounded by Reseda on the north, Sherman Oaks on the east, Bel-Air on the southeast, Tarzana on the west and Brentwood on the south. 

In 1769, the Spanish Portola expedition went over the Sepulveda Pass and stayed two nights at a native village near what is now Los Encino’s State Historic Park. The name Encino was derived from the mighty oak tree that can be seen in the area and that would give Encino its name, which is Spanish for “oak tree” or “evergreen”. 

If you’re looking for a place to invest in Real Estate then Encino is for you. It is known as a quiet and upscale neighborhood with a small town feel and amenities within walking distance. In Encino the average lot size is bigger than other areas of the city allowing you to have a wider space for your home and giving you your money’s worth.
