Ocala Preserve Reviews (5)
Bob is my sales agent and he has been extremely helpful. During the sales process, he took the time show me Trilogy and make sure what I found what I was looking for. During the tour he showed me homes that the owners expanded their lanai to allow them to BBQ and grill since he knew that was important to me. Once I made the decision, he found a lot that would put the lanai away from the sun and I could choose the elevation and colors that I wanted. Since then when I had a question he made sure to get me the answer.
When it came to the design process, Sarah was a joy to work with and made picking all of the options fun. Part of the reason I am having a home built is that I prefer a more urban contemporary design than most 55+ people would want. Sarah was able to concentrate my choices on the options that would fit what I liked and make sure the colors worked together. She made sure to show me examples in the model homes if I was not sure if I wanted something or not. Also there were a couple things that she took the time to explain why I should select certain options. If you have a hard time making decisions, you could go into decision overload with all of the options.
During my design visit, the golf pro arranged to give me a tour of the course, explaining how the hybrid course works and I played 8 holes before storms forced me back to the clubhouse. While hoping to wait out the storms, I had a chance to meet and talk with some residents and builders. They were all friendly helped reinforce my decision to move to Trilogy.
When it comes to the build process, the project manager, Shaun, has contacted me to explain what will be happening during the build process and when I will need to visit. Sunday I received an email with a picture my lot preparing it for when the build permit was issued. Now comes the really hard part. Waiting for my home to be completed.
