As a denizen of Los Angeles for over 30 years, Steve Eshelman has a broad-based knowledge and love of the city. With a continuing curiosity, he is always searching out and finding unique properties. His love of the architecture of the city, familiarity with its neighborhoods and the city’s rich and complex history put him in a great position to help locate that special property for his clients.
Steve grew up in Northern Virginia, near Washington, D.C., and attended college at Virginia Commonwealth University. He graduated in 1971 with a degree in Modern European History and a minor in Islamic History. His languages include English, Spanish and Italian. Living in Washington D.C. for several years gave him an understanding of a city with a constantly changing fabric of people and positions with active, important positions and demands to match. After several years working in communications in Washington, he moved to Los Angles to pursue a career in film.
Working in Los Angeles, Steve earned entrance into the Directors’ Guild of America as an Assistant Director and Director. He has been a member of the DGA for over 25 years. In this arena, Steve has helped highly creative, deeply motivated people execute their vision, tell their stories and accomplish their creative goals. Putting cameras and crews in houses and neighborhoods all over the city, Steve can understand a client’s needs and how to bring them to goal. He still maintains his membership and continues to work in the field. All of this has led to a deep knowledge and understanding of the city, its neighborhoods and how it functions.
Steve and his family continue their connections to the city with public service work transitioning former gang members into professionals in the film business, membership and volunteer work in various neighborhood historical preservation groups and continuing commitments to the schools their daughter attended.
As a proud associate of the Brian Ades team, Steve Eshelman looks forward to finding the perfect home in the perfect place for all of his clients.
