170 View from Balcony in Rancho Palos Verdes

A few years ago Palos Verdes Patch featured five reasons Rancho Palos Verdes is one of the best cities in California to raise a family, per the website CreditDonkey.  Rancho Palos Verdes came in at number 7 on Southern California’s Top Ten based on the following criteria:

1)  Education:  The percentage of high school graduates (98.1 percent)

2)  Work-life balance:  Average commute time (31.8 minutes)

3)  Family-friendly:  Number of household with children under the age of 18 (32.7 percent)

4)  Stable community:  Percentage of people residing in the same house last year (90 percent)

5)  Cost of living:  Percentage of income spent on housing (24.5 percent)

The article went on to say the area is extremely safe and features gorgeous homes, many priced well over $1,000,000.  If you needed to hear this from a source other than a real estate broker/agent check it out in black and white.  Of course, this was not news to me as all four of my children graduated from Palos Verdes Unified Schools as I moved to Rancho Palos Verdes in 1989.

Several years ago I wrote the article “100 Reasons to Call Palos Verdes Home,” and it continues to be one of my most popular posts. I have blogged about living the Palos Verdes lifestyle since 2007. I’ve lived it since 1989, and I began selling it in 1992 when I began my real estate career.
