Father: ‘Summerlin is a beautiful place to raise a family’

Spanning west of the 215 Beltway in Summerlin is the scenic village of The Paseos. The area boasts more than 32 actively selling floor plans in a range of architectural styles, elevations and price points.

The Collelo family, which includes Tom, his wife, Tina, and 7-year-old daughter, Gabriella, have made Summerlin their home since 2013 and moved into The Paseos village in 2016.

Tom Collelo, a former owner of Las Vegas catering and foods company, Tomasso’s Foods, recently sold the business and is now a full-time father to his junior golf superstar daughter, taking her to golf practice six times weekly at either TPC Las Vegas in Summerlin or nearby Angel Park and traveling with her to tournaments nearly every weekend.

Gabriella, a second-grader at Vassiliadis Elementary in The Paseos village, began competitively golfing at the age of 5 but first picked up a club at the age of 3. Tom Collelo, who is a former professional bowler, said she was born with the gift of golf.

“By the time Gabriella was 5, she had already declared her love and passion for the sport of golf, telling me golf was the most important thing in her life,” he said. “As a former professional athlete, I know that passion and drive is not something you can teach and instill in kids. It’s something they are born with, and it’s evident in Gabriella, who is motivated every day to keep working on her game.”

Gabriella plays from the U.S. kids’ tees and typically shoots between 36 and 40 on a nine-hole round of golf.

“That’s pretty spectacular for a 5-year-old,” Tom Collelo said. “We are excited to see what the future holds for her.”

When the Collelo family members aren’t at the golf course, they are often catching a quick bite to eat at Downtown Summerlin. With Summerlin’s 10 golf courses, Tom Collelo said, the family appreciates the community’s family orientation, great schools and most of all, its beauty — both natural and man-made.

“Summerlin is a beautiful place to raise a family,” he said. “From well-manicured streetscapes to Red Rock Canyon and the mountains that frame the community, Summerlin’s got it all. We love it here.”

The Paseos village boasts a higher elevation that overlooks the valley. Nestled against one of Southern Nevada’s most stunning geographic landmarks, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, The Paseos’ exclusive and exceptional location affords commanding views of Red Rock Canyon to the west, and to the east, the entire valley, including the glittering Strip. Amenities in The Paseos village include the 14-acre adventure-themed Fox Hill Park and Vassiliadis Elementary. At the center of the village is the 12-acre Paseos Park.
