Chandler Real Estate Information and Statistics

Chandler is another city located in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States, and is a prominent suburb of the Phoenix.  It is bordered to the north and west by Tempe, to the north by Mesa, to the west by Phoenix, to the south by the Gila River Indian Community, and to the east by Gilbert. It also has satellite locations for many technology companies, including Intel and Orbital Sciences Corporation.

Chandler is known nationally for its annual Ostrich Festival. Initially, agriculture was the primary business in Chandler, based on cotton, corn, and alfalfa. During the 1910s, there were ostrich farms in the area, catering to the demand for plumes used in women’s hats of the era. This demand ebbed with the increasing popularity of the automobile, but the legacy of the ostrich farms would be commemorated by the Ostrich Festival. The Chandler Center for the Arts, a 1,500-seat regional performing arts venue, is located downtown, and the Arizona Railway Museum is at Tumbleweed Park. A 70,000-square-foot Holocaust and Tolerance Museum has been slated for construction in Chandler.
