Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty


It's hard to believe that Gilbert, Arizona was once known as the "Hay shipping Capital of the World." Since the mid-90's Gilbert has experienced a growth explosion not only in population but also in business and commerce. The famous Gilbert railroad tracks that cut straight through the entire Town are still there and plenty of rail shipments find their way through the hustle and bustle of sprawling subdivisions, however, Gilbert is far from the sleepy farm town it used to be. 

Gilbert, Arizona is now the 4th largest Town in the entire State of Arizona. Encompassing just 72.6 square miles Gilbert has transformed itself from an agricultural hub, to an economically diverse suburban populace. But don't let all of this growth fool you in to thinking Gilbert has lost it's cowboy culture. Among the shopping centers, award-winning and nationally recognized restaurants, running trails, and lush green parks, there is still a vast and ever reaching equine lifestyle woven in to the very fabric of this community. 

Horse property owners know the benefits of living in a Town that was founded on a simpler, slower-paced way of living, yet still provides all of today's modern comforts and amenities. Dotted between subdivisions governed and ruled by common Home Owner's Associations are still numerous areas designated for Horse and livestock owners who desire to be a part of this ever growing and thriving suburb of Phoenix. 

Whether you are in the market for an easier to maintain half-acre lot or an expansive ten-acre piece of property which gives you the ability to have numerous stalls, out-buildings, tack rooms, and multiple pastures, Gilbert has just the right home for you. There are a great number of horse properties located right in the heart of Town, or if you prefer a more secluded area on the outskirts of Gilbert, then there are also some wonderful choices that can be found as well.

Kathleen - We've got to let our readers know we're experts in the area and are entrenched in our communities. 

Kat - That's actually a picture I took of a very good friend of mine's house. They own some horse property about 10 minutes away from me so I went over for a visit and snapped some photos.

Erin - Gilbert may be a booming millennial market but there are still vast amounts of horse owners here. 

Amanda - Thanks Amanda. I've bought and sold a lot of horse properties not only in Gilbert but throughout Arizona.

Where does a horse earn money to purchase a property and how do you communicate with them?  Mr. Ed is the only talking horse I'm familiar with, please explain.

I've always loved the wide open spaces and the room to have some horses to graze and ride.  Though, I'm probably a bit to old to start a new cowboy lifestyle.

Roger - The racetrack! Where else?! 

Gabe - I like the idea of a horse property and I like horses but the maintenance and work is a little too much for me personally.
