I would like to begin by saying that when my husband, Stan, and I would talk about our future and our next home I would say, "I don`t know what I want, but I do know what I don`t want. I couldn`t picture us living in a condominium, not knowing who would buy the house next to us. We had lived for many years on an acre of land and we could make all of the loud stereo and television noise we wanted to. Well, one day my husband had a heart attack and was gone in 3.5 hours. You can imagine that left me with a lot of decisions to make. I decided to stay where I was (in all of my familiar surroundings.) I became aware of how big that acre of land really was and how much work my honey had done to make everything beautiful. When the Parade of Homes came, a friend of mine took me out to tour the models and I noted that the first two houses still had yard work to do. She had heard all of my negative remarks about condominiums so she didn`t tell me where we were going next. When I arrived I just followed her and low and behold as I walked into the first one that was called "The Chateau" I declared that it felt like home and as I walked through it I really got excited. I must have visited my home-to-be at least 25 times. During one of my visits, one of the homeowners introduced themselves and they invited me to the next potluck so I could meet the other homeowners. I felt so comfortable with each and every person and I am very thankful for the decision I made to purchase my new home at The Orchards at Cloverdale. Tahoe Homes has addressed my concerns in a prompt manner. I have found that when I have a need, I simply follow the procedures and a very capable workman arrives to assist. The Orchards also has a man that we can call and he sees that the things on the outside of our property get taken care of as well. I hope that you, too, will change your mind if you have had any doubts about condominium living. I am speaking specifically about The Orchards at Cloverdale.
