Proper usage of "Can be said to be"


When is the proper time, if any, to use the phrase "Can be said to be"?



My wife and I had an arguement whether or not it was grammatically correct, or if it was even proper english.


This is the context upon which I attempted to use the phrase:
"If many people have positive judgments about me, I can be said to be surrounded by friends"



Help is appreciated.
