When Nate and Kate first toured Gilbert, they were caught off guard. Having been prior residents of both Central Phoenix and Tempe, they saw it as a completely different lifestyle. Still, what caught them most off guard wasn’t the switch from urban to suburban, it was how rural such a connected area could feel. “When we came to visit and turned off the freeway, we were passing farms and horses and goats. We didn't really know that Gilbert existed down here. It doesn’t really feel like the Arizona desert that we’re used to,” Kate told us. They fell in love immediately. It provided all the modern conveniences of their “old life,” paired perfectly with the safety, security, and space necessary to conduct their new one. The Hill’s had just recently expanded the family with little Dex and desperately needed to expand their living situation to match. Now, they live in a gorgeous, open floor-plan, single-family home in Old-Town Gilbert. The love eating breakfast at the kitchen island, they love relaxing in the evening in their first-ever private backyard, and they love letting Dex roam the halls rambunctiously in his John Deere tractor (complete with ‘sidecar’ for the pup!).
