RENTING IN L.A. is a locally sourced guide for renters on all things real estate & rental related: from finding a new home, to the application process, to signing a lease and living in a rental to pursuing your dream of future home ownership.
This blog was created and curated by the real estate gurus and the leading experts in the leasing industry, The Rental Girl. The Rental Girl is a Leasing Agency with neighborhood branches throughout Los Angeles, California. Each branch is operated by a unique individual rental agent providing free apartment and home rental listings to renters. The Rental Girl lists apartments and homes for rent in all the great Los Angeles neighborhoods.
The Rental Girl agents are all California licensed real estate agents who are instrumental in navigating renters through the treacherous Los Angeles rental market and ultimately motivating and leading them through ‘first time home buyers’ fears and stumbling blocks to achieve their dreams of one day owning their own home.

A former opera singer with a B.A. in Advertising from Pepperdine, Julie was an Account Manager at a boutique ad firm. Now, she parlays the savoir-faire that led to successful film trailers (one in which she has a cameo) to put clients and renters at ease. Having been raised an LA girl, Julie has lived in some of the town’s best zip codes, including Malibu, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks, and Hollywood. Most recently, she’s put down roots in Culver City, the area where she works as hard as she plays. When she’s not matching house hunters to the homes they love, Julie enjoys sharing the glittering aesthetic of her ‘hood’s history. (Psst! She suggests The Culver Hotel for its Gatsby vibe, cause it brings out her inner flapper girl.) She’s a tiny girl with a big heart. Her newest passion connects her to people and four-legged friends alike at Adopt & Shop, a local rescue organization that saves animals from kill shelters.
Fallon is a true gem at The Rental Girl, marking five years with the company. Starting as an assistant to the Los Feliz agent, Fallon begins cultivating a love for all things Eastside. When she became licensed, it was only natural that she become the heart and go-to-gal for the rentals in East L.A. Beware though, as an expert in this side of town if you ask her where to grab the best cup of coffee, she may end up listing one spot from each neighborhood- she’ll argue you can never have too many options! Born and raised in a military household (her father severed in the U.S. Army). Fallon grew to understand the importance, and significance, of being able to truly call a house a home. After moving across the globe every three years, she decided to move out to Los Angeles to finally lay down her roots and attend The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Fast forward to today and Fallon still finds happiness in the city of angels. She is passionate, driven, and positive – she is The Rental Girl.

A new and on-fire Angeleno, LBA melted the ice off Chicago’s city sidewalks, where she founded a theatre troupe that received accolades under her artistic direction for transcendent storytelling and won an award for Leasing Agent of the Year and an overall Marketing Superstar award from her property management team. That insider experience gives her an edge as she transfers to the land of sun, sand, and stars on Hollywood. She’s spent months traipsing around her Hollywood nabes, checking out the best coffee shops, comparing rent prices, and learning why Bette Davis famously advises newcomers, “Take Fountain, darling.” (She says, “Don’t do it.”) She’s digging the secondhand shops and getting to know her neighbors. Ever the thespian, LBA knows to trust the process as she collaborates with others, on stage and off.
