East Valley Real Estate Community

The East Valley is an eclectic area offering college towns, urban farming, classy gated communities, and comfortable middle-class neighborhoods. As its’ name suggests, the East Valley is located south-east of Phoenix and Scottsdale which means it’s close to the states’ capital without being right-smack-dab in the middle of it all. It’s the perfect location for those who want convenience without the major city traffic.

Tempe, of course, is a college favorite. Home to the Arizona State University Tempe campus, this community is currently at the forefront of technology and innovation. Offering one of the nations’ most modern light-rail systems as well as free Orbit shuttles around campus and downtown, it’s a great area for those seeking alternative commutes. Tempe also boasts over 175-miles of bikeways and they certainly don’t go to waste! Thousands of commuters’ bike, walk, and ride to work and school every day. A favorite amongst Millennials, it was recently ranked one of the best placed for 20-somethings to live.

The neighboring city of Chandler is home to over 60 well-planned communities ranging from comfortable middle-class to exclusive and luxurious. Downtown Chandler hosts a weekly farmers market and residents can visit the Fashion Center Mall where they’ll find over 185 stores and shops.

Gilbert is a family-friendly town that’s been ranked one of the best places to live by CNN Money! And its communities are as culturally diverse at the people. The master-planned community of Agritopia is turning heads everywhere for its’ brilliant dedication to sustainable living, right in the middle of a suburban desert. The focal-point of the community is a shared urban farm where residents can help to grow fruits, vegetables, and livestock and then reap the fruits of their labor; literally!

Ahwatukee and Mesa round out the East Valley, each with their own unique styles. One is isolated, and one is bustling but both offer spectacular views!
