Just southeast of Phoenix, Gilbert has transformed from an agricultural community to a thriving and economically-diverse suburban community. During the last three decades, Gilbert has seen tremendous growth, increasing in population from 5,700 in 1980 to more than 275,000 in 2022. Many recent accolades, including being named the 7th Safest City and the 12th Best Place to Live in the country, explain why so many want to live and do business in Gilbert.
Today, Gilbert boasts top notch master planned communities such as Seville, Val Vista Lakes, Morrison Ranch and The Islands, as well as suburban “ranchettes” with horse privileges. Gilbert has all the shopping and dining options you would expect from a growing community, whether you head to the original downtown area on Gilbert Road, or visit San Tan Village, one of the Valley’s newest locales for shopping and dining.
Gilbert’s booming housing industry is coupled with booming business. Gilbert is home to many companies with focuses in Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace and Defense, Bio-Technology, Clean Technology and Renewable Energy.
With great public parks and a superb public school system, Gilbert has something for everyone.
