Jim Weber is an independent real estate broker. He specializes in the sale of victorian and craftsman homes in Los Angeles. I wish everyone could appreciate and see the beauty in the great architectural heritage of Los Angeles. The victorian and craftsman homes of Los Angeles represent a golden age of architecture. These Historic homes are surprisingly affordable and are still available to the common man and woman. John Ruskin and William Morris (founders of the 'arts and crafts movement') would be proud to see their dream still alive in of all places Los Angeles.
Jim is a real estate professional who loves these architectural gems built during LA's golden age of architecture.
I love to show prospective buyers houses designed and built by past generations of artists/architects. This makes real estate a very fulfilling avocation. The next step is to preserve these neighborhoods. They offer a quality of life that is missing in other parts of the city.

The most important current political question affecting the historic homes of Los Angeles is how effective the HPOZ'S are going to be. I strongly support the creation of the HPOZ's (Historic Preservation Overlay Zones). Once you see the beauty of these homes you can understand why these neighborhoods need to be preserved. Granting HPOZ status to these neighborhoods will empower them. Once these zones are fully enacted and operational - watch these areas flower!
He lists and sells residential and income property primarily in the pre-wwII neighborhoods such as the Historic West Adams, North University Park, Echo Park, Angelino Hts, Highland Park and the Mid-City areas of Los Angeles. But he will travel to where the "Old Homes" are - from Pasadena to the sea.

He has worked with buyers, sellers and investors since the early 80's. He also has a property management business specializing in the renting and leasing of historic homes, apartments and commercial buildings. He offers free tours of the Historic West Adams neighborhoods, and has a wealth of knowledge he passes on to interested buyers.

As an agent, and then as a broker, he has sold many houses rich in LA history including: the only "Green and Green" home left in Los Angeles on Cambridge, The Original Von's (The Supermarket) family home on South Kenwood, the Bullocks Mansion on So. Hobart, Harry Belafonte's old home on So. Victoria, an early 5000 square foot Paul William's Colonial on W. 21st St., several of the early "mediterranean" homes designed and built by L.A. Smith., the Abbott Kinney Craftsman on W. 24th St., the Workman family home, a fabulous colonial, on Gramercy Park, several Rupenthal bungalows on w 30th st, plus many craftsman homes designed by Frank Tyler, and many others of note.

He was on the negotiations committee and at the bargaining table championing quality education. He represented LA's teachers on the local, state and national level. He was always and still is passionately committed to quality education. He believes a world class city like Los Angeles should have a world class educational system.

He graduated from UCLA and has a Master's Degree from CSULA. He has lived in Historic West Adams with his family since the early eighties. They reside in one of Los Angeles' earliest Mediterranean style homes, a 4000 square foot 1916 Mediterranean designed by architect L.A. Smith. Smith designed many historic properties including the RIALTO theater in South Pasadena, the BEVERLY theater in Beverly Hills and part of the 1932 Olympic Village ( West Adams Gardens - now student housing) near USC.
