The history of this neighborhood started all the way back in the early 1900’s, when a land developer, Gen. Moses Hazeltine Sherman bought a massive parcel of land. Nearly 20 years would pass before it would turn into what is now known as Sherman Oaks.
One of the events that boosted the development of this area was the construction of Mulholland Drive. You know that big HOLLYWOOD sign that you’ve seen in so many movies and TV shows? Well, it´s right on the side of this road.
But not only that, Mulholland Drive takes you through the Santa Monica Mountains, providing an amazing view of L.A.
Sherman Oaks is a peaceful neighborhood in the heart of San Fernando Valley surrounded by Van Nuys, Reseda and Sun Valley. There are many attractions in this little neighborhood in North L.A. to draw both young and old people, the artistic types, businesspeople, and individuals from many different ethnicities.
White, Hispanic, Asian, African American, and other cultures are widely represented in the area. And the cool thing is, the neighborhood reflects the diversity of its residents in a positive way.
Some of the highlights of this quiet haven are the incredible green spaces surrounding it, a huge variety of restaurants, coffee shops, charming stores, and luxurious homes. In fact, many of our Los Angeles SEO clients have their offices here.
Did you know that Sherman Oaks was one of the first L.A. neighborhood that was developed for commercial and residential purposes? Since then, more than 100 thousand people have established in the area, turning it into a lively and diverse community, filled with small stores and tree-lined streets.
Even some famous people have decided to call this area home, mostly because it is conveniently located near many studios, yet you don’t have to deal with all the hustle and bustle of Hollywood or Studio City. Perfect, right?

Over The SEO Ninjas has done outstanding things for our business growth and our online presence. Prior to working with Over The Top, we attempted to run our own PPC campaigns with very low results (wasting a lot of money). After bringing in Over The Top, who understands our needs and is very attentive, the phone is ringing off the hook. Thank you for helping us triple our profits! We give them the highest regard for their skill set and highly recommend them for any company’s website building and online presence.
After hiring a few SEO firms over the years, with little to no results, I decided to give one more crack at it. I learned about Over The Top SEO while researching the best link building companies on google, and found myself stumbling across their website. I was introduced to the founder, Guy Sheetrit, by one of his employees, and could immediately tell my experience would be different. Guy seems to have a knowledge of SEO that far surpasses that of 99% of the SEO firms I’ve dealt with in the past, and the results speak for itself. I plan on using his services in the months to come.
Over The Top SEO chose a great name, because their results really are over the top. I worked out an estimated ROI I’d get from working with them, and the results have FAR exceeded what I thought I’d be getting. First page results all over the place, ranking for wayyyyy more phrases than I was even expecting, and the traffic has turned into a game changing amount of new business for me and my company. Thank you guys sincerely!
I was the one to locate Over the top SEO for my University and I am happy I did it. These guys are no joke, they know what they are doing from A to Z. no games, no time wasting. purely professional.
We started working with Over The Top SEO after looking for serious SEO experts, we found them in the top positions for most of the competitive words we looked up and after much consideration we decided to go with them, We can’t disclose too much but I can say that it is a beautiful relationship and we are most grateful for the technical knowledge these guys have. Overall just 10/10.
We are a fairly big company in the auto parts industry and Over The Top SEO helped us grow A LOT in the past 2 years. we would gladly recommend them anytime, anywhere.
This company is probably the best we have encountered as of yet, we have been suffering from poor “SEO” experts by 5 companies that are known out there and yet all fail to deliver and over promise the sky. With over the top we literally had 100% interaction in our campaign, we were an active part of the process and still are always in the loop. We finally saw results after several short months with a continuing growth in sales. We are so happy to have met Guy and his team of professionals, and we are not going anywhere.
We were very surprised by the way Guy, Greg, Paul and the team at Over the top SEO works, its the first time someone opens our eyes to what is happening with our campaigns and involves us deeply into the process, which now I understand the importance of why they do it they way they do, we are with OTT for more than 9 months now and we are very happy with them, they are the only company that provided us with raw results constantly.
It sounds that I am very buyest, but hee, what these guys do works. On a daily basis you see your positions improve, traffic get better and your store grow. We are happy bumping into Over The Top SEO, even though we are a dutch company they managed to get Gereedschappelijk the ranking we were looking for. And still improving…!
Really Enjoyed my experience and will continue working with Over The Top SEO in the future. Much love.
San Fernando Valley is home to the world’s leading movie studios, and though many celebrities choose to live in Bel Air and Hollywood, some prefer to live in Brentwood, Canoga Park and some in the quieter neighboring areas, those that non-Angelinos don’t really know about. Bing Crosby and Marilyn Monroe had homes in Sherman Oaks, and Shia LeBauf and Demi Lovato live here.
This brings me to our next point. The entertainment industry is one of the main economic activities along with health care. The former is constantly bringing new people and investments, keeping the economy booming. The healthcare and related industries are also major player in the area’s economy. There is a number of medical hospitals and centers including Sherman Oaks Hospital and other world-renowned medical research centers. The median household income is around $100, 000, which is high for the state’s average.
But what can one do while in Sherman Oaks?
If you are visiting the area, there are many activities you can do to keep yourself entertained. The advantage of this area is that it is very well connected. Do you want to go to the Hollywood Walk of Fame? It’s only a 15 min. drive. How about spending the day at Santa Monica pier? Less than a 30 min. drive. Do you feel like a little retail therapy would do you some good? The Sherman Oaks Galleria is one of the most famous malls in L.A. It’s where Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Back to the Future II, and Valley Girl were filmed. Yeah I know, another Hollywood reference. But, come on! We are talking about L.A! At Sherman Oaks Galleria you will find many shops, but also restaurants where you can have a nice dinner, delicious ice cream, or gourmet coffee. Luckily for us, its only a short drive away from our Los Angeles web design office.
If you are more into independent shops, you can visit the small stores along Ventura Boulevard.
To enjoy L.A.’s unbeatable weather, why not try the Sherman Oaks-Van Nuys Park or the Tuesdays Farmer’s Market. There are many activities to do at the park as it has tennis and basketball courts, soccer and baseball fields, a swimming pool, and a trail for running or walking. At the Farmer’s market, which is set up every Tuesday at the parking lot of Fashion Square Mall, you can get fresh, local produce and food.
If you are looking for a place to call home, or simply visiting L.A. and want to see a different perspective, you should definitely check out Sherman Oaks; you won’t be disappointed.
