On Saturday, February 20, 2016, while hundreds of home shoppers perused their options for resort home living, Ken and Nancy Dudenhoefer, Trilogy® Orlando homeowners, shared with guests why they volunteered to make the 1,200-mile trek from Groveland, Florida to the Ideal-Living Expo in Greenwich, Connecticut. Their story really started when they discovered Trilogy Orlando several years ago, and today they feel like it’s forever changed their lives! Read on to learn more.

Ideal-Living is the foremost online destination for home shoppers to learn about the best places to live across the country. And, according to its website, the Ideal-Living Resort and Retirement Expo is the #1 place to explore relocation options and begin retirement planning.

Throughout the two-day long event, attendees have the opportunity to attend seminars about financial planning, meet with resort community representatives face-to-face, and connect with like-minded people.

At last month’s expo, two of those like-minded people happened to be Ken and Nancy. In 2010, they and their friends visited Shea Homes® at Victoria Gardens in Deland as part of Trilogy’s Taste The Good Life – Try Before You Buy program. During that stay, they had the unique opportunity to “test drive” a new home, explore the surrounding area, and utilize all of the 5-star resort amenities. Shortly after, they learned about Victoria Garden’s sister property, Trilogy Orlando.

Trilogy Orlando is close to the magic of Orlando but tucked away in its own paradise. At the heart of Trilogy Orlando is Magnolia House – an elegant 57,000 square-foot resort clubhouse that offers the latest in dining, socializing, and fitness. Magnolia House features a comprehensive athletic center, sports bar and grill, professional demonstration kitchen, indoor/outdoor lap pool, tennis, bocce, pickleball, artistic studio, and more.

Looking for the ultimate in resort living, The Dudenhoefers decided to do another Taste The Good Life trip, this time at Trilogy Orlando. They immediately fell in love with the property and purchased their dream home just two months later. They’ve been living at Trilogy Orlando ever since, and they told Ideal-Living attendees it’s been the best decision they’ve made.

“We’re beyond lucky to have homeowners like The Dudenhoefers,” says Mike Fraley, Area Vice President for Shea Homes Active Lifestyle Communities. “When you ask Ken and Nancy why they volunteered, they say they simply want others to see the community through their eyes and understand why they love Trilogy as much as they do.”
