Palms/Mar Vista is okay only in certain areas, mainly on top of the hill between Palms Blvd, the 405 Freeway, National Blvd, and Centenila/Bundy(same street different name in some areas). Culver City could be a good option for you if you'd like a house.

One last question, does any one realty company stand out above the others?

Hi
Welcome to Santa Monica. I am a realtor in Santa Monica and I live in there too. I am working with Keller Williams in Santa Monica which was a wonderful change for me. I get the right education every day and they update me regarding the market, and we have profit sharing at our office, which means that if you bring more people to Keller Williams you get part of their commission and you can still earn money after you retire.
Let me know if you are interested in more information.

Good Luck
ROYA

Definitely agree with this statement. North of Montana is one of the most sought after areas in SaMo. Anywhere just North or just South of Montana and you will be just fine.

I actually prefer SaMo over MDR, just a personal preference.

There are some bad areas of Santa Monica

IMO Marina Del Rey is the best place for relaxation

While Santa Monica is usually the place for some night entertainment

I'd definately pick SaMo! It's very diverse and has a lot to offer. It's my favorite area on the westside.

There's only a 'pocket' (around SaMo college) of an area in SaMo that is a little rough around the edges, but not "bad" as in terms of some areas such as Watts. Yes, the area right around Montana is the most upscale, but I think Ocean Park and Sunset Park neighborhoods on the southern/south east end of the city are safe too - just average middle class neighborhoods.
