The Town of Queen Creek Arizona is located in the far southeast valley of Phoenix. What used to be a tiny, "one-street" town, is now becoming a much larger community. Forbes.com recently ranked Queen Creek as one of America's "Friendliest Towns." This is an honor for the local community and it rings true is so many ways for the people who live in Queen Creek. However, the truly special thing about Queen Creek is the Town's committment to maintaining the small-town, rural feel that Queen Creek is best known for. Many people are drawn to the area because of it's location and wide open spaces. With the recent growth in population, there are now many more amenities available in the area, including shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, pretty much anything you'd find in a larger city, ...

Horse properties in Queen Creek Arizona and the surrounding area of San Tan Valley, are wide and varied, ranging from smaller, 1-acre pockets of land wrapped by city development and subdivisions, to larger parcels of land further into the countryside, surrounded by desert landscape and farm land. There truly is a horse property to suit every buyers preference. Some buyers are looking for a convenient location close to town, and there are many properties available that meet that description. Other buyers have a need for more space, more seclusion and the more “rustic” lifestyle of desert living. In general, the larger the horse property, the bigger the budget required. It is much easier to find a 1-acre property than a 3 or 4-acre parcel in the SE Valley. Budget is probably the biggest ...

The Town of Queen Creek is celebrating their 25th anniversary as an incorporated town! 2014 marks the beginning of a year long celebration of the town’s past, present and future called “Celebrate The QC!” I have often said that I love living in Queen Creek because of the town’s commitment to maintaining that small town feel while also offering many of the amenities enjoyed by residents of larger cities.

"Orange" You Glad I Planted Orange Trees? -- The Oranges are Ready! My father-in-law, who was a prolific gardener, always used to say "If you are going to water a tree it should give something back to you." That always brought a smile and probably influenced my decision to plant citrus trees in my yard.  That said, I happen to love trees of all sorts, especially big shade trees. But there is something to be said about eating some fresh fruit, from your own yard. Here we are in mid January and another beautiful day in Metro Phoenix Arizona.  It is nice and sunny and the expected high temperature is well into the 70s. The fruit appears to be ready on my orange trees.  Here are a couple of photos: The Oranges are Ready in Metro PhoenixEric and Josie Crane     "Orange" You Glad I Planted Or...

Sparrow Drive, Cortina -- Progressive Holiday Dinner -- 2013 We are blessed to live on Sparrow Drive, in the Cortina neighborhood of Queen Creek, Arizona. It is a very tight knit group of neighbors, which is unusual in this day and age.  We get together throughout the year, to celebrate holidays, but are also there to help one another during times of need. Last night we enjoyed the 2013 edition of our Progressive Holiday Dinner.  For those who are unfamiliar, a progressive dinner is a dinner party with successive courses prepared and eaten at different residences.  If you've never experienced one -- give it a try!  It's a lot of fun and helps to build a sense of community. Here are a few pictures taken during the appetizer course:               Sparrow Drive, Cortina -- Progressive Holi...
