When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

Portuguese and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 24.9% have Asian ancestry.
Glen Frazer / Christie is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Glen Frazer / Christie (21.2%) than in 96.0% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 4.5% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Glen Frazer / Christie neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, the Glen Frazer / Christie neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 90.8% of California neighborhoods
for executive living, based on the wealthy, educated professionals,
executives, and managers who choose to reside here, the spacious homes
that are prominent features of the real estate in the neighborhood,
and the high real estate appreciation rates found here relative to
other neighborhoods in the state.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Glen Frazer / Christie
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Glen Frazer / Christie neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.3% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.5%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Glen Frazer / Christie stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 81.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
