Pro #4

Coming in at number four, new construction. Our city continues to grow and there's a need for more housing. We have new construction such as The Groves in Whittier, the hiking trails, and Candlewood Villas. Coming in at number five is our family favorite Uptown Whittier, which has a diversity of restaurant and foods such as vegan, Indian food, Asian, Mexican food and of course our family's favorite Peruvian food. Uptown Whittier also have plenty of cute shopping boutiques and it's farmer's markets.

On the east side, we have Friendly Hills Country Club. On the north side we have Whittier Narrows Golf Course and on the south side, we have Candlewood Country Club.

NOW LET'S GET INTO THE CONS

Con #1

Coming in at number one is a distance to the freeway. Depending on where you live the further east, the farther the freeway can be. If you live in West Whittier, the freeway can definitely be 15 to 20 minutes drive depending on traffic.

Con #2

Coming in at number two, Whittier Boulevard is the city's main traffic artery. It can become pretty busy during rush hour, so you quickly start to learn all the shortcuts and side streets. Willie Garcia: So, if you're looking for that perfect area, perfect Whittier neighborhood that you're considering moving into or would like to see simply give us a call, send us an email, send us a text message, or even send us a lightening bolt however you'd like to get a hold of us.
