I love living here and have no regrets about buying a house. We are an unincorporated city which means things run a little differently. The biggest perq is no HOA and no city property taxes. It's pretty quiet but there are coyotes... but they were here first so no complaining! We have several parks in a tiny area, including a duck pond you can fish in, a dog park, and a playground with basketball courts.
Most people are pretty friendly. There is some crime but that is in all of Phoenix and it's nothing violent.
We are removed enough to have some peace and quiet and see stars, but we are still very close to shopping and restaurants.
We also have several long-term care facilities in the area for those needing work close by. Banner Boswell is very close as well, definitely within biking distance and the Surprise shops are a 10 min drive up Grand Ave.

Need more job opportunity, more restaurants and retail stores near by and higher rating elementary schools for the area.
It's a small quaint town with amenities one would never expect to find. We have several parks and the people are very welcoming. Our small community is also a stone's throw away from shopping malls, theaters, restaurants, and other avenues of entertainment. You name it!
