My husband is being transferred to SoCal in a few months from Phoenix. Please offer some leads for us to start looking as far as nice places to live. We are most interested in good school districts for our kids (7 years and 1 year). Our annual income is $140K. Thanks!

You have also posted this in the Orange County forum. Is your husband being transfered to somewhere in Orange County or Ventura County? If your husband is being transfered somewhere in Orange Conty there is no way you want to live anywhere in Ventura County. This would be a very very loooong commute, and not necessary. Orange County has many areas that would suit your needs without a 3-4 hour roundtrip commute.

He is a pharmaceutical manager, so his district is Southern California. We can live anywhere in the area -- I picked Orange County and Ventura county to post, as those seemed to be the most desirable places given that he travels all over the place depending on where his reps are.

Orange County: Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Newport Beach, etc. are all great, safe places to live with good schools.

Ventura County: Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Moorpark, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village are also all great, safe cities with great schools. This area of Ventura County is called the Conejo Valley, which is less crowded than Orange County.

Schools: Thousand Oaks area. Income: just about anywhere in the county except maybe North Ranch Westlake Village or Santa Rosa Valley. Nice: very subjective. Depends what this means to you. East Ventura County is car-culture heaven (especially Thousand Oaks) and for this reason "not nice" to me. West Ventura County to me is "nice" as it has a mix of people and grit simply missing in east VC. Plus the weather is much milder in the west than east. This especially spells "nice" for me. Can't handle triple-digit heat day after day.

Wherever you consider, check Great Schools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community for ratings of the neighborhood schools. This has been a huge tool for me.
