Rosedale in Azusa -- the Perfect Community for Extended Families

AZUSA, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 16, 2012) - For some homebuyers, finding the perfect community is a family affair -- and that is particularly true for new Rosedale homeowner Mai Thai. She and three of her siblings, as well as extended family and relatives have their own homes within this award-winning master plan and Mai is delighted that her family is so close to each other. "My brother Andy purchased at Rosedale first and my two sisters and I followed him here. Offering a tranquil setting that gives us easy accessibility to our jobs in Orange County, downtown LA and Riverside, all of us can't think of a better place to be together as a family," Mai explained.

"I always wanted to stay in LA County, but wanted to live within a quiet area. As soon as my brother and sisters discovered Rosedale, I immediately knew this community was exactly what I was looking for. It's naturally beautiful and serene, but close to everything, such as Target, Costco, Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart. I also love that my family and I can easily drive to our favorite Asian restaurants or markets in the San Gabriel Valley from Monterey Park to Roland Heights and even Little Saigon -- convenience is key for all of us. I purchased the first home I ever looked at and feel very fortunate about my decision. Everything from the location to the home and the overall appeal of the Rosedale master-planned community was perfect," she added.

Rosedale, San Gabriel Valley's fastest selling master-planned community, has impressed smart consumers with its new neighborhoods and spectacular recreation. "I never believed in homeowner's dues or Mello Roos taxes, but now I appreciate everything they pay for -- the perks of living here are incredible. When I saw how well-built Rosedale was, with the beautiful views and amenities, where the streets and trees and facilities are taken care of, I have a much deeper understanding of their importance. I love the recreation center and my entire family thinks it's the best thing around. During the summer, my nieces and nephews spend a lot of time in the pool and we have reserved the clubhouse several times for special occasions. My family is very close-knit and love spending time together and it's so easy for us to gather for barbecues and other activities at The Resort. I particularly like the fitness center and use it quite frequently; it's just a great situation."

"Everyone in my extended family is extremely happy living at Rosedale -- it's the ideal community in a great Southland location and we are together, which is the best part of all," Mai added.
