With The Legend of Tarzan coming out in theaters last week (but not getting great reviews), Tarzana is getting a lot of attention in the press!
A great story in L.A. Weekly highlights The Origin Story of Tarzana, a Neighborhood Named After An Ape! In 1919, Edgar Rice Burroughs paid $125,000 for Mil Flores, the sprawling, 540-acre country estate of Los Angeles Times publisher Harrison Gray Otis, who’d recently died. Burroughs renamed the estate Tarzana after his novel Tarzan of the Apes, and the rest is history.

Why am I writing about Tarzana, CA? Well, for starters, I live here. Although I said that I would never move back to the Valley, I ended up here anyway! And it was a great decision for my family. My parents live here so I get free babysitting for my 3 kids. I also grew up here so it really does feel like home. I also play golf here at a course 5 minutes from my house, so it makes it very convenient! And lastly, I help people buy, sell and invest in real estate here. Wait a minute… now that I think about, it seems like my entire life is in Tarzana!
