Top 5 Reasons Moms are loving Eastmark in Mesa

What’s all the buzz about Eastmark lately?  Oh nothing…it’s just one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the country consistently recognized as the #1 seller in Arizona.

That’s all great but why are Moms loving it?

1. The variety of homes offered at many different price points suits the needs of a wide range of families.  If you aren’t the new build type and need to move a little more quickly, there are several gorgeous gently used resale homes available. Check with The New Build Ninja for the list of specs available and get the best of both worlds, the brand spanking new home and the quick move-in!

2. The community feel is strong between neighbors.  There are many active Facebook social groups like Eastmark Moms, Eastmark Neighbors  and Eastmark Babysitters Group .  The beer club, gardening club and healthy life group brings those with similar passions even closer together.  The Eastmark Experience info page will keep you up to speed on the First Friday concerts, holiday events and all the other neighborhood happenings.

3. The amenities make life much more enjoyable and ridiculously convenient.  No mom wants to pack everything and everyone up just to drive several miles to the public pool or the park for fear of having to quickly pack up again and come home because someone had a meltdown or an accident.  Some of our favorite amenities are the 12 neighborhood parks, the splash pad, the Handlebar Diner, the Great Park, the Visitors Center with game room and the neighborhood pool.  The upcoming farm, lighted ball park and dog park are sure to be winners once they are complete.

4. The schools are very attractive and very close.  Queen Creek high school is coming to Eastmark in 2019.  Eastmark offers two of the country’s top-ranked charter schools. BASIS Mesa at Eastmark will be serving grades K-12 starting in 2019.  Sequoia Pathfinder Academy at Eastmark is a STEAM-based elementary school that serves grades K-6.  The Learning Experience, serving the early education needs of children 6 weeks to 6 years, plans to open an Eastmark campus.  The public elementary school, Gateway Polytechnic, serves K-5.  There’s also a new Legacy Traditional School being built nearby that will be opening this year.

5. The commute is super reasonable.  These days anything affordable with the new home smell also comes with a 45 to 60 minute commute to the city depending on traffic. Eastmark is super close to the 202, the 24 and the 60.  It’s 30 mins to Phoenix Sky Harbor and 10 mins to Gateway Airport.  San Tan Village and all the shops and restaurants is 12 minutes away and Downtown Gilbert is only 18 mins away.

MOMnation…Not your Average Mommy Group

MOMnation isn’t just a Mom’s group.  It’s a community that learns from each other.  We’ve been learning a lot lately.  Here’s what we’ve been up to!


14 Moms toured Eastmark model homes discussing the latest design trends and how to  recreate designer looks on a budget.  Our Moms had so many ideas at the end of the tour!!  One attendee had this to say “…Talked to the hubby after we left and he was on board with doing some simple DIY upgrades I saw in the beautiful homes. My favorite had to be the accented ceilings and air stone wall, so pretty. Thanks for organizing a fun day Jill, Jen & Katie.”  Organized by Jen Duncan, The “New Build” Girl, Katie Lambert and Jill Dench with Team Evolution Real Estate 🙂

Our very own Organization Guru, Katy Krupnick with The Tidy Cottage, completely reorganized an entire pantry in less than two hours while several Moms watched in awe (while sipping wine and eating delicious gluten-free brownies).  Attendees went home with many tips and tricks on organizing their own homes…and a new obsession with gluten-free brownies.  Thanks to Annette Johnson for hosting our awesome Moms!!


In January, Movies on Main and MOMnation welcomed representatives from our charity of the month NCCC-National Cervical Cancer Coalition.   Disney’s Frozen played and Princess Elsa and Princess Anna, with AZ Enchanted Events, were there too hosting activities and taking photos with the kids and MacPea Photography.


74 Moms met “speed date” style at Boulders on Southern last Saturday and had two minutes to connect with each other before moving on to the next.  Friendships were made and fun was had!  Thanks so much to Ted for the great experience at Boulders on Southern!


Shondi Zwaschka was the perfect hostess for  our “GYST” class featuring: Money!  After only one hour our Moms walked away with a better understanding of basics on budgeting, saving on insurances, how much debt really costs and how to get rid of it, and how to start big E-funds for life’s curve balls.  Priceless!  (ha ha…get it?)


MOMnation Day is every third Thursday at the Chandlers Farmers Market and Erika Lenz with Team Evolution Real Estate and #DogstoDoorknobs joined Katie Lambert (pictured) in January with some cute pups to adopt.  Special thank you to Angels for Paws Animal Rescue.  Please contact Erika if you are thinking of adopting a pup.  There are so many sweet friends that need great homes!
