Chandler Has A Diverse Business Base – From Banking to High Technology to the Bio-Sciences
Chandler is in a sense the “New Silicon Valley” in that many high tech companies have relocated their corporate headquarters to Chandler Arizona. Chandler had for a long time positioned itself as a technology center and this has come to fruition and with the companies came an entirely new breed of Arizonans. Many engineers, computer scientists, Bio-Technology and specialists in these fields and a great many innovations have come out of Chandler and make this city a great fit for companies who flourish in an environment of innovation and creativity. As a testament to this dedication, Chandler continues to invest significant resources in the 101 Science & Technology Corridor, as well as the rest of the city to ensure superior infrastructure. This corridor is South Chandler and the “Newer Chandler” that resembles Scottsdale with its lake and golf communities, million dollar homes for about half the price if what you would pay in Scottsdale. I would recommend as a Chandler Realtor that anyone looking to relocate to Scottsdale had better take a close look at Chandler. I have been selling homes for over a decade and I have sold many homes in Scottsdale, Gilbert and Chandler. I will say that South Chandler is every bit as elegant and charming as Scottsdale and has virtually the same retailers as well. What the developers do in North Scottsdale they “Clone in Chandler”. For a good Example there is a famous Italian restaurant in Scottsdale that is also in Chandler (under a different name) but identical menus and ambiance; and the menu is about 65% less expensive in Chandler. Chandler also has several golf courses, private clubs, and golf communities that are even better to play than many of the courses in Scottsdale. The lake communities in Chandler are also much nicer and newer in Chandler than in Scottsdale. There are many advantages to living in Chandler over Scottsdale one of which is the proximity to the Sky Harbor airport and freeway access to Central Phoenix; and most of the infrastructure and roadways are much newer in Chandler and the city has been very strict with its building codes.
