Detached Design, Private Yard, Competitive Pricing Prompt Family to Purchase Silverleaf's Residence Two

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 3, 2016) -  Homebuyers are turning to California Pacific Homes' Silverleaf in Irvine's Portola Springs® Village for detached courtyard living at attainable prices. Omer and Anjelica Gercek recently purchased a home at Silverleaf for their family of five. After looking at both attached and detached homes in Mission Viejo and Lake Forest, they came across the new Silverleaf neighborhood in Irvine. "During our home search, we realized three key elements were most important to us: a three bedroom detached design, a private yard for our kids and competitive pricing. We found all of that and more at Silverleaf."

The Gerceks purchased the Residence Two, a smartly planned, two-story courtyard home that comfortably accommodates the couple and their three young children. "The spacious, open-concept floorplan is very light and bright, which is important to us," Omer says. "We also like having a second story with the bonus room where our kids can study and play." The gourmet kitchen is another feature that instantly made an impression. "Anjelica loves the kitchen design with oversized countertops, a large center island and white cabinetry that opens up the room." Modern amenities, such as a Bertazzoni range, a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and microwave and Pental Quartz countertops round out the kitchen's appeal.

Silverleaf's quality construction played a pivotal role in their purchasing decision,
as well. "I prefer new homes over resale because there are no know exactly what you're buying," explains Omer. "Our Silverleaf home is brand-new and has a 10-year warranty, which gives us peace of mind."

Omer, a Verizon Wireless telephone engineer, and Anjelica, an assistant to a Huntington Learning Center's coach, covet Silverleaf's desirable location in Irvine's Portola Springs Village where they're conveniently close to work and award-winning Irvine schools. "We love that a new elementary school is so nearby and a state-of-the-art high school is opening soon, so our children will never be more than a few miles from us during the day."

The family enjoys spending time together and the village's parks and resort-style recreation make their family-time effortless. "There are so many amenities available in our community but we probably use the pools more than anything else. We also like having trails and open space so accessible," says Omer. The family is also looking forward to the future Portola Springs Park, opening in 2018, which will offer a community center and native garden, lighted sports fields, tennis courts, volleyball and more.

The purchasing experience with California Pacific Homes was a pleasant surprise for Omer and Anjelica, who have owned three previous homes. "It's rare to find a sales team as honest and informed as the people we worked with at California Pacific Homes -- they far exceeded my expectations. Karen, our Sales Manager, knew every detail about Silverleaf, and offered some useful perspective on other communities, too," Omer reflects. "She gave me such confidence and trust in my purchase and still personally follows up to make sure everything is running smoothly. We feel a part of the California Pacific Homes' family."
