Thinking of moving to the Phoenix area early 2010....is there a specific area where the accounting jobs are? Also, where are some of the good places to live for affordability, low crime and families? Want to avoid the gettos and have an 11 year old daughter.

There are SOOO many threads here already about all the suburbs and different areas of Phoenix itself, with lots of information for you to read.

We don't have too much in the way of "ghettos".

I understand you don't keep them in one place.....it's my understanding that Phoenix is more spread out. Unlike Seattle were we have a major downtown that everyone communtes too. I was wondering if Phoenix has a central finance district? For example, would that be downtown Phoenix or some other suburb of Phoenix?

Most of the large banks have large buildings downtown (Chase, Wells Fargo, US Bank, etc.). Brokerages, etc. may be a bit more spread out, but much of that, too, is in the Central Ave corridor.

it is all spread out though - companies may have a large building and then offices all over the place - for example Edward Jones has a big office in tempe, AMEX has a large presence in northern phoenix, insurance companies are spread all out as well as brokerages

kpmg has a large office in tempe

it's really spread out - no financial district or business district per se

the camelback corridor, downtown and the "uptown" central corridor probably have the highest concentration - but it's far from a given that's where you'll end up

That's because there is so much tax payer money holding up those buildings in the "financial district"
