El Segundo


Vista Sotheby's International Realty

Only a few minutes from the beach and a few miles away from the big city of Los Angeles, El Segundo provides a charming hometown feel to its residents while prospering a healthy business environment for its workforce. El Segundo is a thriving business center with a workforce over 85,000 that are employed by some of the nation’s most prestigious companies. The name of the city itself foretells its story. El Segundo means “the second” in Spanish, which was the name originally given because it was Standard Oil Company’s second refinery. The local citizens further defined their home as El Segundo a Nada, “second to none!” This rings true as El Segundo remains home to 12 Fortune 500 companies, it is proud of its Air Force Base, and equally proud of its aviation heritage and recognition as the “Aerospace Capital of the World.”
