Real Estate Agent with MR Realty

SanTan Village: Growing at the Speed of Life!

Located at the heart of Gilbert, Az., SanTan Village is a master -planned  500-acre urban village that will encompass approximately three million square feet of retail, entertainment, restaurant, office space and residential in an outdoor environment. I have already called this my new neighborhood mall, I have frequented the Harkin's which has been open for some time now and I love it! Everything is scheduled for the Grand Opening starting this weekend and I must say I am shocked! There is so much growth in this area it's so much fun to see and watch! This is my neighborhood and it's amazing what a piece of farmland can transform into! This is just one of five malls in a 8 to 10 mile radius, it's amazing how they can fill the stores!! Holidays here we come!!      For the store directory CLICK HERE  Click Here for List of Stores Alphabetically

This aerial was compliments of a dear friend that works for the Town of Gilbert and helps me keep in the know!!  What a great shot, I can actually see my house in the background!


Mark your calendar!  In celebration of the opening of Westcor's newest shopping center, SanTan Village, stop in and join in for a weekend filled with events and entertainment beginning October 26!   Sneek Peak October 25!

So much thought and hard work goes into your blogs-- can you tell me if your seeing any results from people with money in their pockets to spend on a new home ??  I would hope that all your well thought out ideas and graphic presentations are bringing hard results.

Neal - this picture in the actual pixel size is amazing. I actually scrolled through it and found my house! Pretty terrific photography I think! I love to see aerials. I love MSN's Virtual Maps! Fun stuff.

Kim - Yes a friend is coming to town and I think we will find our way there for the festivities!

Jason - Honestly, I am amazed this town can handle another near by mall, but they are popping up everywhere. I am sure they will be able to fill it up in no time with customers! This area is growing like mad. 

Roylen - Some results so far. Others have successes all over AR.

Chuck - Yes, I remember back in the 70's when Gilbert seemed like a day trip and we had to pack the car to get there and my folks lived on Gilbert Rd, between Broadway and Main St. in Mesa.  Perception from a kids eyes but the growth is amazing and exciting just the same! Glad you stopped by neighbor!!
