Leaving their small hometown in Arkansas to move to a major metropolitan area in Southern Nevada, Debbie and Jerry Williams flew to Las Vegas three times to make sure their family found the right place and the right home in which to put down their new roots. Their search ended at Montclaire, a family-friendly gated Pardee neighborhood in Henderson.
"Everything came together as it was supposed to, as if it were meant to be," Debbie Williams said. "We are close to the airport for my husband's work, the best schools for our children, plus convenient shopping and dining. With long distance help from our Realtor and Pardee's sales counselor, everything meshed together and made us feel at peace."
And while they love their new home, a Plan Four that includes a theater room, hobby/laundry room and walk-through pantry, the Williams family is most impressed with their Pardee buying experience.
"They made everything go so smoothly and they were very friendly," Debbie Williams said.
"Rick McCollum, our customer service representative is awesome. You could call at any time and he would be over lickety-split. And Dennis Shavor, the construction superintendent, often checks in on us and waves whenever he sees us," Debbie Williams said. "The friendliness is just wonderful - like back home."
The Williams family includes Jerry, who owns a telecommunications company, son Josh, 12, who will attend Del Webb Middle School, and Kirstie, 21, who will attend University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The Montclaire neighborhood is in a newer area of Henderson just off Horizon Ridge Parkway and Jeffreys Street.
"The gated neighborhood provides buyers like the Williams family with a nice mix of peaceful living along with easy access to work and play," said Pardee Regional Sales Director Rob Tuvell.
Montclaire's six floor plans range from 2,789 to 3,959 square feet, with as many as six bedrooms and four baths. Prices start from $291,150.
All of Pardee's newly designed homes, including those at Montclaire, are part of the builder's LivingSmart brand, a program with standard and optional measures that boost energy efficiency, save water, improve indoor air quality and encourage material conservation and the use of recycled or sustainable resources in new homes, according to Tuvell.
Through two new programs, Pardee is helping many families overcome obstacles to buying a new home. Offered through an independent company and exclusively for Pardee Home buyers in this market, the Smart Move Advantage program will rent a qualified buyer's existing home for as many as three years.
"The Smart Move Advantage program represents one of several steps Pardee Homes has taken to boost buyer confidence and smooth the path to new-home ownership," Tuvell said.
Through Pardee's own Homeward Bound program, prospective buyers can receive expert assistance on credit issues that can affect home loan availability.
To visit Montclaire, take Eastern Avenue south of St. Rose Parkway and turn right on Horizon Ridge Parkway. Follow Horizon Ridge west then turn left on Jeffreys Street. The entrance is ahead, on the left.
