If you are contemplating buying a home in Arizona, you will be hard pressed to find a more comfortable, family friendly city than Gilbert. Gilbert real estate continues to be affordable, and it has great neighborhoods and highly performing schools. Although technically it is a town, rather than a city, it has experienced phenomenal growth in the past couple of decades, yet it continues to have an easy-going, small town atmosphere that is the envy of other cities in the Phoenix Metro area. It has a wide variety of shopping and dining, and excellent freeway access to the north and south. There are also myriad ways of entertaining yourself; following are some of my favorites.
