In this issue we bring you interviews with Zahn McClarnon, veteran actor and longtime area resident, as well as L.A. County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who’s busy forging a connection with our community after it joined her district at the end of 2021. You’ll also meet eight local real estate pros and learn about the services they provide to help buyers, sellers and renters navigate the market.
