One of my images from Los Angleles aerial photoshooting with amazing golden hour moment, got published on the cover page of November 2017 issue of Apartment Age, a publication of AAGLA. The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles (AAGLA) is Southern California’s leading advocate for affordable quality rental housing.
AAGLA’s mission is to serve the interests of multifamily owners, managers, developers and suppliers with services and activities to maintain a high level of professionalism in the multifamily housing industry. AAGLA directly advocates for the rental housing industry locally in the city, county, state and federal government to better serve the rental housing needs of the public in a just and fair manner.


The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles has been the voice of the Multifamily industry for over 100 years! It is an association of owners, managers and suppliers who desire professional growth, operational advice, advocacy on behalf of the industry and individuals who seek to surround themselves with like minds. AAGLA is made of members who have a passion and interest in investment property and want to maintain the highest standards in the rental housing industry. AAGLA members house Southern California.
The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles (AAGLA) was founded by Elizabeth McGonigal in 1917 when McGonigal and a handful of friends sold their rental properties in Long Beach and reinvested their money in Los Angeles rental units. McGonigal became the first AAGLA president of the newly formed association. Membership dues were $1 a year.
In 2009, AAGLA became a chartered affiliate of the National Apartment Association ensuring members would be represented in Washington D.C. and in 2014 became a founding member of the California Rental Housing Association, amplifying our member’s voice throughout the State of California. Since 1917 through today, AAGLA has provided the opportunity for members to meet regularly with other rental property owners to share experiences of common problems and possible solutions learned from fellow professionals. As aspects of rental housing has changed so has AAGLA but we have remained at the forefront of multifamily issues for 100 years.
