LA aaroe
The rise of Silicon Beach has shaped both the job and real estate markets across Greater LA. Largely because of its growth, LA County now has more high-tech jobs than Boston-Cambridge, Santa Clara County and New York City, according to the County’s Economic Development Corp. It’s also transformed the housing market on the whole Westside. In this issue, you’ll learn how our Pacific powerhouse emerged … and where it’s headed. Enjoy!

In Place: Silicon Beach

Strung along four miles of coast from Santa Monica and Venice to Playa Vista, the Silicon Beach tech area first emerged when a handful of small startups moved south to flee the high rents and heavy competition of San Francisco’s Silicon Valley. Now, just a few years later, it’s widely considered the second- or third-largest tech hub in the world, home to more than 700 companies.
Success hasn’t wilted the pioneering Silicon Beach spirit. In addition to major players like Snap, Google, Yahoo!, YouTube, BuzzFeed, Facebook and Electronic Arts, Silicon Beach is home to over 500 tech startups. No wonder once-dismissive Northern California venture capitalists regularly venture south in search of promising new deals. John Aaroe Group and our Northern California Pacific Union offices now regularly assist clients moving between the two tech kingdoms. more »
