La Mirada is a  community known for many things, some of which are nice homes on beautiful tree-lined streets. It’s been one of my favorites since very early in my real estate career. The city is also known for Biola College and the famous La Mirada Theater. The newest attraction just opened, SPLASH” the acquatics park, this is an amazing place,  great for everyone. It’s located on 18 acres of the La Mirada Regional Park. Personally, I’m a huge fan of parks, and I think La Mirada Regional  is one of the best in Southern California, (it’s one of my personal favorites) best of all, it’s free of charge.

  1. Hi Lynda, interesting market report and sounds like an excellent location! If we ever hit Disneyland I’ll give you a call. 🙂

    I bet the residents love being so close to the airport!

  2. Lynda,

    You are a wonderful source of local real estate information. The residents (and future residents!) of La Mirada are lucky they can count on you.

  3. Hey Stephanie,
    Thanks so much. If you’ve EVER within the vicinity of Disneyland, I’d love to meet you!

    BTW, I always use the Disneyland reference to place my community on the map. We have so many cities here that run into each other it’s difficult to figure out. Therefore, it’s easier to explain my area if service is about 45 minutes surrounding the park.

  4. Hi Maggie,
    So good to hear from the number one Real Estate professional in Miami Redlands.
