The Tramontana family – excited new members of Encanterra Country Club – give some insight as to why they feel Encanterra was the best choice for them as they enter an exciting  new stage of their lives.

Why did you buy at Encanterra?

“We looked at several different communities in the area and just fell in love with this one.  As soon as we drove through the gate we knew we wanted to be here. The amenities and friendliness of the people were positive attributes to moving into this community.”

Did you shop anywhere else for a home?

“We purchased a home in Mesa in Feb. of 2012.  We loved the home, but the neighborhood just wasn’t very friendly.  So on weekends we would travel around the area looking for our next “retirement” home.  We looked at about 7 – 8 communities throughout the area and none of them had the effect that Encanterra has.  We knew as soon as we drove through the gate that this was ‘the one’ now if we could only make it work!”

Why did you decide to buy now?

“We really didn’t think we could make this work having been in our Mesa home for only 7 months.  But thanks to Shea’s great sales team and the option of the sale of our home to go forward, we decided to go ahead and list it and see what would happen. We listed it through Shea Preferred & Ben Leeson who was so helpful with staging and getting everything ready to show.  We had our first showing on a Monday at 10:00am and a contract at 4:00pm at full asking price no less!  Now we had a contract and nowhere to live.  Just a little stressful, until Ben once again came through with a short-term rental here at Encanterra. So here we are, living our dream.”

 How much time do you plan on spending at Encanterra annually?

“We are full time residents here at Encanterra, I am lucky enough to be retired, but my husband is still working.  Hopefully he can retire in the next few years, that’s our goal and we couldn’t be happier.  We are both golfers and absolutely love this course and the many activities that come with living here.  We feel like we are on a staycation every day!”

What would you recommend to folks who are still shopping for a home today?

“Don’t wait, this is a beautiful community and the people are so welcoming and friendly.  The Staff is outstanding to work with.  Everyone is very professional and so helpful with whatever you might need. We have made so many new friends, but if feels like we have known them for a long time. We just can’t say enough about the lifestyle here, come join us!”
