Hello everyone,

I recently got a job in Santa Monica and my office is on the Ocean Park Blvd. My husband works in Glendale (Brand Blvd to be precise). We live in Orange county at present and plan to move to a place which is a good compromise for both of us commute wise. We looked at apartments in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and they are super expensive. Also, it will be a longer drive for my husband. We are considering Sherman Oaks and Encino. What do you guys think the commute will be like for both of us. Any suggestions will be helpful!

my wife and i live in encino and she works in santa monica. her commute is around 45-60 minutes each way, but it can be much worse when there are accidents or lane closures. glendale shouldn't be as long, but it's not exactly close either. the problem is that the westside is very difficult to access if you don't live on the westside, so i would live closer to the santa monica location if possible. have you looked at culver city or palms? both are fairly close to santa monica and offer easy freeway access to glendale.
