Curtis Park is a community of older established homes, each home unique in character, clean and well kept, very nice surrounding. Near freeways, parks, schools. As far as it being a safe neighborhood I would direct you to the crime map report http://crimemap.sacsheriff.com/cvc I would suggest you drive, walk the area at various times of the day to ensure your satifaction as to what makes you feel safe.
I say to you Sir, we don't know the day nor the hour that crime can strike, but we must always be vigilant. Be trully apart of the community that you choose to reside in, be involved with neighorhood watch. Yes, be your neighbors keeper, kept your family, home and property safe.
Happy Home shopping!
Mamud, it is against federal law for any licensed agent to answer this question. they all gave you the right answers to find that out for yourself. And honestly, it's a very personal decision. Even if you call the police department and ask 'is such and such a safe neighborhood?' they most likely will not answer. Not that it isn't safe but it's called steering and illegal. Even the most expensive, gated communities could be 'unsafe' depending on your criteria....so talk to neighbors, check the crime statistics, and drive/walk the neighborhood at various times of the day. That will give you the best indication.
