Hi,

We consider relocating to LA (by my husband's workplace). He will be working at Century City.
We are looking for some nice neighbourhood, with good schools, which is not far from the work. Our rental budget is 2000-2500 and we prefer family house or condominium. We thought about Culver city, Glendale, Sherman Oaks or La Brea/ Fairfax area. What do you know about these places. Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance. Your help is very important for us. We will thank you also for any helpful links regarding LA issues

If your husband will be working in Century City, the furthest you want to be is Culver City. Try Westwood, Brentwood or Santa Monica. La Brea /Fairfax area (north of Pico) is also a decent area (I live near Pico/Fairfax). With your budget should be able to find something that fits your very general description.

Glendale or Sherman Oaks will come with nightmare commutes.

If schools are a concern, then this will make things a bit more difficult. Culver City is hit or miss from what I understand. Beverly Hills apparently has pretty good schools and so does Santa Monica. However, these areas are very expensive and finding a house or roomy townhome to rent will probably exceed $2500/month. You may find something though. If you are willing to stretch your commute a bit, El Segundo near LAX apparently has very good schools and is about the same distance from Century City as some of the neighborhoods in the Valley that you mentioned. It certainly isn't cheap there, but prices are definitely lower than Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

Santa Monica should do. It's nice and has good schools. Welcome!
