Chandler, Arizona truly is the perfect place. It has a wonderful school district filled with nationally recognized high schools and middle schools. It is a diverse place for children to grow up and learn in. Additionally, there is also always something fun going on! In downtown chandler there is almost a festival for every occasion and it is a wonderful place to spend time and hang out with family. Everything you need is right around the corner which is a major perk! Overall, if you are thinking about living in Chandler come check it out and I can promise that you wont be disappointing!

Chandler, AZ has been our home for over 12 years. There is so much to do and see here in our town. Out from the hustle and bustle of city life, but close enough to take a short drive to be in the center of it. There are so many activities in the area, you will never be short on things to do. Weather you feel like spending the day at Rawhide, KOLI Equestrian Center, Phoenix Premium Outlets for some awesome shopping, or head to one of the local casinos, you will be kept quite busy. With the vast amount of parks in the area, the Education Centers, Museums or the Aquatic Centers the kids will find their favorite spots. The schools in Chandler are all A rated and above with educators that care about our future and the community. Chandler is definitely the spot to be!
I'm a big advocate for living in Chandler, Arizona. I love the diversity that it contains. I grew up in Chandler and in the schools growing up I had classmates of all ethnicity. I think that was very important in my upbringing.
As an adult I have always been able to find a job in the area and there are houses and apartments of all costs nearby. Chandler is surrounded by all the major freeways as well so that only opens more job opportunities. I also enjoy the night life. There are many areas of entertainment and foods to meet every taste!
