I have over 400 clients I have sold to in the Long Beach area and they could all give you high testimonials and very few have moved away.
Love working with relocations and would be happy to work with you. I have worked in the Long Beach Area for over 30+ years and lived here for 15 years.

The area just east of downtown is called Alamitos Beach and there are many very nice homes there. At the eastern end of that area is Bluff Park and Bluff Heights, both very nice areas. Just each of there is Belmont Heights, one of the most highly desired areas in the city. There are many other areas within a 15 minute drive of downtown that are excellent: Artcraft Manor, Los Altos and Plaza, all excellent places to live.
Before recommending any of these locations, it is important to know not just the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, etc., but what budget you are working with. The first three locations I mentioned are more expensive, due to their proximity to the beach. Artcraft Manor is very reasonable, but most homes are two and three bedrooms built in the 1940s. Parts of Los Altos can be very expensive and Plaza offers an interesting variety of homes and prices.
None of the areas I just mentioned are known for "high crime", heavy pollution or being run down, which mostly are neighborhoods very close to downtown, due to their age, and the population moving away from downtown over many decades. Now that is reversing as the downtown areas are being redeveloped. There are many more great areas in Long Beach: Naples, Bixby Hill, South of Conant, Lakewood Village, Bixby Knolls (straight up Long Beach Blvd. from downtown), Carson Park, Rancho and Alamitos Heights.
I hope this was helpful.
