When the Nest is Empty…Get a Bigger Nest

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 5, 2018

The Reserves at Val Vista - Forever HomeMichelle Smith, a Phoenix-area real estate agent, found herself in the same position many parents do when her son and daughter prepared to move-out for college: what do I do with all this extra space?

The answer, she thought, was downsizing. “Every other house I bought, I bought with my children in mind… this house we bought for us.” With decades of real estate experience behind her, Smith had Shea Homes® at the top of her list of builders. Knowing she didn’t want to move far from Chandler, where she’s lived for the past 25 years, Shea’s The Reserves at Val Vista naturally caught her eye.

“What we really wanted was a house with great entertaining spaces that didn’t have a million rooms,” she says. Originally she and her husband wanted a smaller space once the young ones moved out. But as they started looking at The Reserves, that changed; you’ll find no small spaces at The Reserves. The more Smith thought about what she really wanted from the next chapter of her life, she realized less space wasn’t the answer. This would be a home for many years to come, a home for birthdays and holidays, for grandparents and grandkids. Floorplan 7004 fit the bill perfectly.

The Smith’s fell in love with the design, and were the first couple to buy a home in the community.

Floorplan 7004 is 3,983 square feet.

Anything but downsizing.

“All the spaces you would usually entertain in – the breakfast nook, the dining room, the living room, kitchen – are very large. You could comfortably have 40 people in here.” Entertaining space: check. And while the kids would be moving out for school soon, Smith was keeping an eye on the future. With three large bedrooms and an additional casita, she wanted her extended family to have a place to stay for years to come.

“I could put in a king size bed, I could put in a crib, I could put in blow up beds – all so when my children have families of their own, they have a place to stay.”

It wasn’t just her children she had in mind. The Smiths added a backyard casita, as a future optional living space for their own parents. “It’s so perfect for an extended family down the line. We love that aspect of it.”

Room for the family: check. Between spacious bedrooms and oodles of living space, Smith knows her home will be the holiday getaway of choice for years to come.

Q: What makes the experience of buying, building, and living in a Shea Home special?

A: Honestly, we all have a passion for our guests and customers from the moment they walk through the front door. We are genuinely interested in their wants and needs in a home, as well as their interests and work life.

Q: What are the unique selling propositions of your community? What sets your community apart?

 A: The specific topography and surrounding atmosphere of this community, I think, set it apart from others near-by. Within minutes of walking, you can be hiking or biking in the South Mountain Park, which you can see from a good portion of the community.

Q: Tell us about a time you helped a family find their dream home, and what it meant to you.

 A: We had a customer here who I connected with quickly, who ended up being out of town for a while after their visit. We had spent hours talking on the phone and via FaceTime one day and they ended up pursuing one of the most sought-after locations in the neighborhood. I think what meant the most to me, was the happiness on their face when they walked through the front door. We are now frequently visited by their dog, Tank!

Q: What community amenity at Vantage do your homeowners love the most?

A: The pools without a doubt. The reserve-ready clubhouse and movie theater are wonderful parts of the amenities here, but the two heated pools and hot tub areas are far too serene to pass up, and are active year-round!

Q: What does living the Shea difference mean to you?

A: Living in a Shea home currently, I can certainly testify that the thought process and design in these homes are on a whole new level. There is just a grand usage of all the square footage with very minimal wasted space, and very high attention to detail.
