Flora Mae Statler founded Surprise, Arizona in 1938. She named it such because she 'would be surprised if the town ever amounted to much.' Well surprised she would be, to know that this small plat would become one of the fastest growing cities in the nation between 2000 and 2010. Lots of new homes are available at reasonable prices, along with other modern properties built in the 2000s. Houses rule the market here, but you'll also find a number of condos and townhomes.
