At 55 being retired in the big city, my love of the Golden State was beginning to lose its luster. This led me to begin my search for a place to call home, away from the hustle and bustle. All roads led me to Woodland Village, a quaint development in the back of Cold Springs Valley. Here I found the perfect place to spend my golden years. However, trying to get into a home was proving to be a bit challenging. I spent the better part of two years submitting bids and being outbid. Then my brother told me about some new homes being built where I was searching. My brother and I took a ride to see the models. From the moment I walked into the sales model I knew I had found my dream. It was a Saturday afternoon and there were a few others looking too. Brick was great to work with, there was no pressure as he showed me the models. The only problem for me with all the models and floor plans was choosing the one that fit me best. Leaving with all the maps, floor plans, and pricing, I set off to pick my dream house. After a few days of contemplating what fit my needs, I returned and sat with Brick to discuss my options. Brick again was very gracious and helpful, together we found the perfect lot for the floor plan I had chosen. We did the paperwork and set an appointment to choose all my options. Meeting with Ed to pick out my options, was as pleasant as working with Brick. Ed was very thorough, he explained everything in detail. He even came up with a few ideas to customize my home to better fit my liking. When we were finished we came up with a time frame of completion, which was going to be at the beginning of winter. Not ideal for moving, I was a little concerned, but to my surprise Lifestyle Homes did something really great. They went to work and finished my house a month and a half early. My experience with Lifestyle Homes has been and remains the best home-buying process I have ever had. The entire staff is a joy to work with, so much so we are all on a first-name basis and I do not feel like a customer, but more like part of the Lifestyle family. After seeing my house and the quality, my younger brother and his wife sat down with Brick and planned their dream home. I look forward to bringing a few other buyers into the Lifestyle family and new home buyers.
