Homes For Sale in Queen Creek
If you’re looking for a place that’s constantly moving forward into the future without sacrificing its rich heritage, Queen Creek is the town for you. The town itself is relatively new and was only incorporated in 1989, but its history goes back much farther than that. Before residents officially formed the town, long before Arizona even became a state in 1912, native communities settled in the valleys of the San Tan Mountains. Farmers and miners learned how to live off the land. Immigrants flooded into the area and created safe and vibrant communities. Today, many residents of Queen Creek are descendants of the town’s founding families; many roads in the town have even been named after these families, and residents are remarkably aware and respectful of the town’s humble beginning as a farming community.

It’s true that the town itself is fairly new -- but elected officials and town leaders have already worked with the residents of Queen Creek to create multiple strategic plans for town development, ranging from everything from the preservation of natural landmarks, to road planning, to providing economic opportunities for each of the town’s 31,000 residents. The town provides valuable (and free!) resources for residents opening up their own small businesses, and for anyone who wants to give their public building a “face lift” but can’t afford to do so, the town has a Facade Improvement Program which helps business owners improve the aesthetic of the town through monetary grants. The median age of Queen Creek’s residents is 30.3 years and approximately 72 percent of all residents have a college or higher education degree -- in other words, the residents of Queen Creek are dedicated to making the community into a friendly place for young professionals and families alike.
