Lakewood MBI Real Estate

Incorporated in 1954, Lakewood has always emphasized family and values. Approximately 85% of housing units are single family dwellings. Housing tracts blossomed during the early 1950’s intertwined with parks and commercial/retail developments. Along with the almost 3,000 businesses in Lakewood, about 150 acres of the city are devoted to parks and other landscaped open space with over 36,000 trees lining streets and shading city parks servicing its over 80,000 residents. The majority of Lakewood is serviced by the Long Beach Unified School District with the other portions, the Bellflower Unified, ABC Unified and Paramount Unified Districts.
