Elle Gaensslen has joined The Howard Hughes Corp. as sales and marketing manager for the community’s custom lots in The Ridges village.
Gaensslen replaces Roger Pettiford, who recently retired after successfully overseeing sales and marketing in The Ridges for more than 16 years.
Gaensslen brings more than 18 years of real estate and retail management experience to Summerlin, most recently earning top sales production honors from her previous employer.
“Summerlin set the standard in Southern Nevada for quality of life, and I am thrilled to work in one of the crown jewels of this master plan,” Gaensslen said. “Today, we are actively selling home sites in Azure, one of The Ridges’ premier neighborhoods offering lots from one-quarter to three-quarters of an acre and priced from the low $300,000s to $1 million-plus. It’s both gratifying and thrilling to help those in our community seeking the ideal location to build their dream home.”
Azure in The Ridges is adjacent the third, fourth, fifth and sixth holes of Bear’s Best Golf Course, designed by PGA golfer Jack Nicklaus. Residents of Azure have access to Club Ridges, the village’s 9,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness facility open exclusively to residents of The Ridges. Azure offers convenient access to the I-215 beltway and is just minutes from McCarran International Airport, the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Summerlin, where a 106-acre fashion, dining and entertainment center will open Oct. 9.
