Serving All of La Verne
A small city located just 30 miles outside of cosmopolitan Los Angeles; La Verne offers an attractive blend of small-town comfort and big-city attractions. Formerly known as the “Heart of the Orange Empire,” La Verne was well regarded as a pillar in the citrus industry until the end of the Second World War. Today, most of the orange groves have been replaced with thriving communities and comfortable subdivisions. With a median income of just over $75,000 and a population of about 30,000, La Verne is an affluent suburb that is perfect for families, couples, and single people. In fact, a number of retired celebrities and athletes have chosen to call La Verne home.
