Best LA Neighborhoods
is a Los Angeles real estate blog
bringing like minded buyers and sellers together.

Beyond shelter …

Real estate is about people. Every home sold is a mutual exchange of wants.

That’s the definition of a successful home sale.

In our case, we bring buyers who have a penchant for modernist architecture and appreciate good design together with the homeowners selling these kind of homes. Whether you’re on the hunt for a mid-century modern home designed by one of history’s great modernist architects, a character Spanish in the hills, a newly-built small lot development, or America’s original pre-fab – the CA bungalow, the goal is to curate your search and introduce you to the owners who are selling them – and visa versa.

You can find a list of generic homes anywhere. When you want to find an architectural gem or be inspired by your living space start by reading the blog and explore the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, then find a home by searching a curated list of architecture for sale

Sonya Coke Los Angeles Real Estate Agent


I’m Sonya Coke – creator of Best LA Neighborhoods, a real estate agent, lover of wine, and a Dwell magazine devotee.

Since the early 2000s I’ve sold an assortment of luxury residences, starter homes, and heavy fixer uppers in various price ranges throughout Mid LA, the Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Eagle Rock. All the spaces I’ve helped my clients buy and sell share this in common – good bones, an abundance of light and open living.

Experience helping a buyer find their dream home (sometimes even before the home hits the market) to helping sellers price their home right to generate a flurry of interest, to negotiating (which is where I’m told I get that twinkle in my eye) has earned me some modest bragging rights. It also keeps me excited, and reminds me of why I got into this industry in the first place.

If you’re thinking about selling a home with good design and architectural integrity or considering buying one – I’d love to help.
