White House Properties
As Dennis said, Woodland Hills is a good choice if you want to be further west. I would especially recommend West Hills as being a neighborhood of nicer (but older) homes.
If you have a family with school age children, then you might want to consider Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, or Oak Park, where I live. Our schools are highly acclaimed vs the L.A. schools which are having a pretty rough time of it! But depending on your lifesstyle, the area can be a little sleepy. You don't have the socio economic diversity and while we have FABULOUS shopping at the OAKS mall in Thousand Oaks and great stores in Westlake Village, we don't have a main street where people go out walking, shopping and eating on Saturdays! We are the suburbs! On the plus side, we have lots of open spaces, hiking trails, tennis, golf and are just a short hop (20 mins to 1/2 hoiur) to PCH and the beach. I would love to take you on a tour of both areas when you get toCalifornia. That's the best way to start. GOOD LUCK! Sim
I would say a good "halfway" area would be Sherman Oaks close to Ventura Blvd. There are great shops and restaurants around. It isn't right in the middle, but driving time should be fairly equal for the both of you. If you want to be further west, I would recommend Woodland Hills.

Congratulations on your upcoming move to California. Regarding what is a better location to work between Burbank and Glendale, it generally depends on your profession and where the opportunities exist. However, in general for a young urban professional, I will recommend Burbank. Burbank is centrally located and will afford you access to the universal studios and many other studios and all forms of entertainment, restaurants and other places that interest similar other young urban professionals. Burbank is also a wonderful place to live. Feel free to call me at 818-825-6996 to discuss in detail.
