Quote from ArvinC EMT
yeah everyone is telling me to check around the greater phoenix area, especially Gilbert and Chandler from permanent residence. ANy thoughts on that?
Of the two I prefer Gilbert, but obviously that is personal preference. We looked at homes in Chandler and I got irritated by the constant drone of the planes overhead. That may not be the case now, but about 10 years ago there was a small airport there and it felt to me that planes were buzzing overhead every 5 minutes. It drove me nuts.
Gilbert was lovely; very new, fresh...lots of new build homes etc. Lots to do, and easy access to Phoenix and the main freeways (read...jobs), especially for some of the major metropolitan hospitals such as Mayo etc.
These are all my subjective opinions, of course. I strongly suggest you spend a few days touring the area and getting a feel for the vibe of each city to find what works for you. Some will depend on your age, interests outside of work, whether you have children etc.
