    Valley Glen / Van Nuys / Lake Balboa Real Estate

    Valley Glen

    Valley Glen is a community in the southeastern portion of the San Fernando Valley district of the City of Los Angeles, California, United States. It is home to Los Angeles Valley College, Grant High School, and The Great Wall of Los Angeles, a half mile-long mural painted on one of the concrete sides of the Tujunga Wash portraying the history of California from the perspective of women and people of color.

    Until 1998, the area was simply considered a part of Van Nuys, with the eastern section being a part of North Hollywood.

    Van Nuys

    Van Nuys is a district in the San Fernando Valley region of the city of Los Angeles, California, United States.

    The area is named after Isaac Van Nuys, who was of Dutch descent and a participant in a ranching enterprise called the San Fernando Homestead Association, a group that purchased most of the southern San Fernando Valley (south of present-day Roscoe Blvd) in 1869 to grow grain and run sheep. Van Nuys split this huge acreage with his senior partner, Isaac Lankershim, getting the east area (present-day Lankershim Blvd. crossed his section).

    Lake Balboa

    Lake Balboa is a district in the San Fernando Valley region of the city of Los Angeles, California.

    It is bordered by Encino to the south, Van Nuys to the east, Reseda to the west, and Northridge and North Hills to the north.

    A debate about the official recognition of Lake Balboa as a community by the city of Los Angeles was resolved in January 2006, when the city of Los Angeles adopted a formal community naming process. This had important implications for the official existence of many other Los Angeles communities created prior to January 2006. These communities include Arleta, North Hills, Porter Ranch, Valley Glen, Valley Village, West Hills, Winnetka, and many others.
