Woodlands hills is not far from LA and is a safe area depending on which side you are living on. But hopefully you come down to so. cal and enjoy the great weather and rides we have here.
Thanks for the info, I will be doing more research for Souther Cali... San Jose looks pretty good place to live and rent doesn't seem much of a difference since my job will be require for relocation and pay raise that will meet California living cost.

I will be working with Business Accounts, generally zip code based hence not a lot of driving from different cities to cities. For example if i'm relocated to San Jose, I will be mainly in San Jose. So the commute from my work isn't too bad, and i will be working at office very minimal and work from home

I have been to San Diego and it's a ver ynice place, yea they gave me a really wide range of locations - hence I'm just asking around where would be a nice place to reside

Not really driving a lot, mainly within cities for work; maybe driving to explore different cities, but not for work.
Not really preference in 'ethnicity' I would like to be somewhere center that I can drive to certain major cities within hours.

My consideration is mainly safety, price I can negotiate with my employer

Thanks everyone for the input and questions - I do greatly appreciate it; i've been searching the web, but it just doesn't do justice
