How do you find rentals in Eagle Rock?

Kathleen from Providence, RI needs help finding a place in Eagle Rock:

Hi, my family and I may be relocating from Providence, RI in the very near future. Based on the commute (to Sylmar) and schools and neighborhood, we’ve decided that we like the Eagle Rock area very much. However, most of the methods we’ve used before in locating rentals (apartments or houses) are not working very well. Craigslist has a *very* small handful, and other internet searching we’ve done has turned up next to nothing. How do people find rental housing in the area? Do you use real estate agents? Are there signs on lawns/in windows? Thanks for any advice!


  1. @Kathleen,
    Hi. I live in Eagle Rock and can happily say that you will love it here. Eagle Rock is in the North East corner of Los Angeles. “nelalist” is a yahoo chat group for the neighborhoods of North East LA You might post a general description of your rental needs and I am sure you will get some helpful replies. It is also a great source of information about the neighborhood and surrounding area.


    Eagle Rock is like a little Mayberry RFD in the middle of big city LA. Great school system, great restaurants & foodie places, great relaxed vibe. And Casabianca Pizza – people come from all over LA for the ‘za!

    Good luck!

    Oh, I would love to say yes, but we are working on a very tight timeframe. We are looking at having a lease signed so the kids can start school at the beginning of the school year. Thanks.
