Having lived in an older home in town the much lower utility bills in the villa was a very pleasant surprise, as was the lower property taxes. I find my villa cozy but not crowded.  The open concept provides a feeling of spaciousness while providing a smaller, more manageable home.

After 2 ½ years here, I’m very happy with my choice.

Being in the construction industry, you come to expect great relationships and superior quality of the people you work with.  Not only is Choice Homes a partner of ours, their attention to detail and fantastic attitudes towards the house building process is why I chose them to build my own home.  The process was seamless and trouble-free, everything I knew I would receive due to their amazing service, and why Choice Homes will be the first choice for my next home.
