Why Srour & Associates

Srour & Associates has been assisting developers and property owners build in the South Bay and Southern California for over 40 years. We know how the City, County, and State approval processes work, and we know who to talk to. Whether you are a developer, an architect, or a property owner, you need to spend your time on what you do best – not get bogged down in the details of navigating processes and zoning codes. That’s what we do best.

We can build a development team through our network of architects, designers, engineers, landscape architects, and special services providers that we work with in the South Bay. Or we can integrate into your development team to get the approvals the team needs.

Track Record

We handle the entitlements for a majority of residential development projects in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, including approval for Coastal Development. We have entitled hundreds of condominium units in Redondo Beach, El Segundo, Lawndale, Hawthorne, City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, Newport Beach, San Clemente, and Westminster.

Our Backgrounds

Srour’s principals are Brandon and Stacy Straus. In 2018, we purchased the firm from its founder, Elizabeth Srour. We have since expanded the firm’s offerings, to include pre-purchase due diligence, expediting of building permits, and overall project team management, as well as use of new local and State-level housing laws in development projects.

Stacy is an organizational powerhouse and a born multitasker. Brandon is a recovering attorney of 27 years. Between us, we have decades of experience in the private and government sectors, which as helped us understand how to get things efficiently through the approval process, giving you comprehensive development services. Nothing is too big, but also nothing is too small.




With a slant toward efficiency and operations, Stacy brings tools to developers that assist in streamlining the process, and ultimately saving time and money. With experience working with government regulations, Stacy uses that to benefit the client with tearing through the red tape and accessing local government staff.
