It's not legal for real estate agents to comment on crime and on "good and bad districts" of any city or areas within a city. I suggest you talk to local residents to get their feedback. You should also contact the local police department. There's also a free website that will give you information on crime: http://www.crimereports.com
Let me know if I can help you further with your property search.
