  1. Growing City

Marathon Ranch is located in Gilbert, a close-knit community that successfully blends suburban conveniences with its agrarian roots.  The Town of Gilbert is the fifth largest in Arizona, and according to Niche, it was ranked No. 1 in 2018 for categories like best suburb to live, best place to raise a family and best place to buy a home because of its low crime rate, diversity and high-performing schools. The town is developing into one of the largest municipalities in Arizona and its population has grown to over 237,000 residents.

  1. Entertainment

Gilbert is full of a variety of dining options, ranging from big-name restaurants to local, family-owned eateries – and most are a short distance away from Marathon Ranch. Shopping and entertainment options also are plentiful, with Gilbert’s downtown entertainment district, the Heritage District, located nearby.  The quaint district is perfect for the whole family to enjoy various museums, theaters, galleries and shops, not to mention the hottest restaurants in town. San Tan Village and Chandler Fashion Center are the top shopping destinations, providing locals with a large collection of retailers and fun.

  1. Major Employers

Ranked as the 14th hardest working city in America, Gilbert is home to a variety of employers in a broad range of industries. Places like Isagenix, Intel, Banner Health, Paypal, Avnet and the Gilbert Unified School District provide ample opportunities for those in the work force. You’ll live only a short distance away from work, cutting travel time down significantly.

  1. Outdoor Living

Scenic golf courses and numerous parks await future homeowners. Zanjero Park offers a horseback riding trail within its 20-acre, outdoor wonderland. Gilbert was also named a Bicycle Friendly Community and offers 135 miles of outdoor adventure. Most of Gilbert’s parks are connected by three bicycle friendly trails. The connected parks offer shade, community ramadas and other features that the family can enjoy.
