My experiences have been excellent in Gilbert. I think everyone has different experiences.

Glad to see Scottsdale leading the list. People think the town is uptight and snobby, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

People who don’t live there judge Scottsdale by Old Town, but Old Town is mostly people who don’t live there - either tourists or people from other places in the Valley.

I lived right in Old Town for a little while, in a condo development that seemed super uptight at first. The management was for sure, but the people who actually lived there were SO nice and it was also the most diverse place I’ve lived in AZ.

Recently we moved to a house a little further north, but everyone is still super chill and friendly. I’ve met half of my street whereas when I lived in Mesa, everyone pulled into their garages and at night and didn’t interact at all.

I said I think. And RE is a side gig for me. Barely even a dent in my day to day life, but it's another revenue stream. What do you do exactly?

I voted for Scottsdale to be ironic. I think many people did the same. I don't think you'll find any truth to this poll.

I didn't vote yet, still weighing my options. I think "by my pool" is the most chill place in town on Saturday nights when I break into my stash, but that wasn't an option.

Scottsdale is a lot friendlier and more laid back than Mesa. I have to agree with you on that. I don't think I'd ever live in Mesa. Chandler and Gilbert are laid back too. If I got a job in Scottsdale, I could try living there.

I was born in “Snobsdale”, my dad’s family lives there and I have lived in city limits for short stints on numerous occasion. Why I call it “Snobsdale” like many other locals is not based on old town but rather central and north Scottsdale. Or did we forget that Silverleaf and the Carefree areas of far north Scottsdale exists too, in addition to central Scottsdale that borders Paradise Valley? My dad’s side lives in Central Scottsdale and while I love them to pieces, they are snobby. Driving the newest luxury vehicles, going on the nicest international trips... But this is also why they are so adamant on wanting to stay in their neighborhood despite their complaints on what patio homes and townhouses go for in Scottsdale these days: the community fits them. People want to live amongst others like them, this is scientific fact.

Being snobby is a personality flaw. Everyone has personality flaws, I’m sure I have some myself. But you cannot be laid back if you are a snob and in some cases you can’t even be friendly as a snob. So Scottsdale should not be leading this poll, because a strikingly significant majority of Scottsdale fits it and why the nickname came to be.

Scottsdale’s best neighborhood has and will always be South Scottsdale. Truly an exception to the rest of Scottsdale.

I feel like jealousy/envy is also a personality flaw.

Nahh, people are so nice in Scottsdale. I accidentally bumped into someone in Scottsdale and the kind lady said, "don't worry about it." While in Tucson, they say, "watch it buddy." I've had all positive experiences in Scottsdale. If anything, the least friendliest suburb in Maricopa County is Mesa. Anywhere else is friendly, some areas more than others. Phoenix is just like any big city, some nice areas and some not so nice areas. The majority of people are nice here.
