In Los Angeles, we hear a lot of concern about outdoor air quality. There's the smog in the air from all the LA traffic, and when a wildfire hits, you can actually see the smoke clouding up the skies. One thing you rarely hear about, though, is the quality of the air inside our homes, despite the fact that it's what we breathe in the most. 

In fact, there are no federal guidelines controlling indoor air pollution, despite mounting data indicating just how dangerous it is. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels.”

The affordable housing crisis in Los Angeles continues to worsen with each passing year and city officials have been struggling to come up with any meaningful solution. This month, however, the LA City Council has voted to pursue a new plan to help bring some relief to homebuyers.

This practice began in 2013, with the tech company Opendoor, and since then, others have followed suit, including Redfin,…

Today's blog post marks the beginning of a new series we'll be doing where we'll tell you everything you need to know about duplexes in Los Angeles. We're choosing to shine a spotlight on this type of property because although they're sometimes overlooked as an option, they can be the ideal choice for prospective owners, investors, and renters. These properties are less expensive than a single-family home, so they're great for the renter or owner who wants the feeling of an SFR, but can't quite afford that yet.  If you're considering getting into real estate investing, starting off with a duplex is a great way to get your feet wet without taking on the responsibility of a multi-unit building.

Los Angeles restaurants have been struggling to survive since the beginning of the pandemic and women-owned businesses are being disproportionately affected. The National Bureau of Economic Research reported a 25% drop in the number of women business owners last year, a decline they classified as "unprecedented." 

In response to this crisis, a group of women who own Los Angeles restaurant and hospitality businesses came together to form the charitable organization RE:Her. Its mission is to advance women in the industry and provide them with mentorship, grants, and resources. 

To kick-off 2021, they've organized "10 Days RE:Her," their first virtual food festival which will include special take-out menus from over 100 restaurants across the…
