Thank you for your question about a good place to raise your daughter in Hollywood. There are great neighborhoods throughout Hollywood and West Hollywood that are thriving with families and have strong communities.

A lot depends on price. Personally, I recommend Beverly Hills or Westwood for raising a daughter and having a career in Hollywood because they are close enough to commute.

Hi Titi! Congrats on making the move to LA. You'll love it! I work in the Hollywood Hills and I live in the Hollywood Hills. My husband and I plan on having a baby sooner than later and I think its a great place for us to begin a family.
When people are relocating, I always suggest a short term rental, while you search for a home and get to know the city. LA is huge and you will most likely want to live near where you are conducting most of your business.
Take care!

Realtors are not allowed to give opinions on particular neighborhoods (it's called steering) but you can check up demographics (income levels, crime rates, etc.) on a site called http://www.city-data.com all you do is just put in the information asked and it will give you neighborhood details as well as comparative information. ;)

In fact, here's the exact link for you to input the address;

What kind of music do you play? My husband is the lead guitarist of a band that tours all over the world. They're currently writing their 5th release and their music has been featured as part of Guitar Hero 2, Rock Band, and on a horror movie soundtrack. Do you tour with your daughter? What label are you signed with?

I'm currently working with some clients who are relocating from the U.K. (I'm a member of FIABCI/International Real Estate Federation). Would you be coming over on a P-Visa and getting permanant residency?

If you'd like my husband is endorsed by Ibanez and his Artist Rep and Record Label Execs live out in beautiful parts of LA so I could ask them for recomendations for you. I can be reached at elizabeth@elizabethherbert.com

Funnily enough, I am English.

In any event, there are so many areas of Los Angeles to consider but it depends on your budget. Another great, up and coming and trendy area is Echo Park which might suit your lifestyle. Depending on how long you intend to live in the home you should also consider the school districts.

Titi, the village of Toluca Lake is a gorgeous, safe area at the base of the Hollywood Hills on the Burbank / Los Angeles border. Learn more about the area via the web reference, below. Many musicians, actors and creative people live in Toluca Lake due to the close proximity to many studios, restaurants, shops and the ease of freeway access to the rest of Los Angeles. There are also award-winning schools on both the L.A. and Burbank sides of the Village. If you are not yet working with a Realtor®, give me a call - I be so happy to help.
