Our beloved East Valley communities of Gilbert and Chandler are once again turning heads on a national level. The Phoenix suburbs are being touted by Law Street, a major national news site, as two of America’s top 10 safest cities with populations over 200,000. The website determined the rankings using 2015 statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Report.

According to the data, Gilbert was recognized as the second safest city in the nation for the fourth time, surpassing places like Virginia Beach, Virginia; Santa Clarita, California; and even Scottsdale, Arizona. Meanwhile, Chandler ranked tenth overall, dropping a couple spots from last year’s number eight position.

Both Gilbert and Chandler are no strangers to the national spotlight. In fact, in 2014, Gilbert was ranked as the 20th best community to live in by 24/7 Wall St., a New York-based financial news and opinion website. Similarly, in 2015, Chandler received attention as one of the top family-friendly cities in the country by Livibility.com, a leading online resource for researching communities.

Of course, we don’t need accolades and rankings to know that Chandler and Gilbert are the quintessential places to raise a family and enjoy life to the fullest. Just ask the residents at any of our five Maracay Homes neighborhoods situated throughout these high-demand communities – we’re willing to bet they share the same sentiment.
