About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1998. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Los Angeles County

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this apartment unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

Great Apartment with Magical Details!

  • 5 of 5

A cute apartment in a very safe neighborhood. Lovely decor, and some magical details perfect for our trip to Harry Potter at Universal Studios! Hanging lanterns, a small porch swing, a winding stairwell approach complete with statues framing the entry really completed our experience. Lloyd was charming and personable, and gave us some great advice on local restaurants within walking distance. Used Lyft to easily ride to and from Universal. I would definitely stay here again!

Amazing, comfortable & very clean property. Lloyd was a very friendly & supportive host. Felt completely comfortable in the area & this property. The oranges Lloyd left at our doorstep was the perfect touch & I made fresh orange juice which was delicious. When we return to LA we wont look anywhere else. Thanks so much Lloyd & see you again soon. Vicki, Tony & Ceara
