Last April, I wrote about The Lakewood Beautiful awards program which honors Lakewood homeowners that go the extra mile to reflect a special “pride of ownership” in the homeowner’s property to maintain well-kept, beautiful homes and landscaping.
This program was founded 29 years ago by the late Jacqueline Rynerson. The Lakewood Beautiful program is a way to encourage and thank Lakewood residents who improve their homes and gardens. Studies have shown that home upkeep and beautification efforts by caring and committed residents keep crime rates low and property values healthy. Everyone in the community benefits from this.
As a Realtor® specializing in the Lakewood Mutuals area of Lakewood, I am honored to represent the many Lakewood sellers and buyers that I have been of service to during my career of over 22 years. I take great pride when showing property in this beautiful city which is why I choose Lakewood to start my real estate practice.
This year there were 262 homes nominated. The nominees were evaluated for property maintenance, landscape design and overall appearance. Awards were given in two categories. Twenty-nine homes received the top Distinguished Recognition award, and 86 homes received honorable mention.

The Lakewood Beautiful Program’s primary sponsor for 2010 is the Water Replenishment District of Southern California. Other generous sponsors include City Light & Power, Inc., EDCO Waste Services, Gateway Business Bank, Lakewood Center, Lakewood Lions Club, Lakewood Pan American Association, Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe, Piazza Family Restaurants, R. F. Dickson Company, Southern California Edison, West Coast Arborists, and Willdan.
