Just Sold Las Vegas Real Estate – 6862 Apogee Ridge Court Las Vegas, Nevada 89135

Posted by Ben Jones on Tuesday, December 18th, 2018 at 11:16am.

Twenty years ago the Ray family had an incredible opportunity to leave Las Vegas and move to Southern California. But, after nearly two decades away, the pull of aging parents, children and even grandchildren grew strong enough for the Rays to reconsider a move back.

So here was their new challenge, how do you come back home? So much had changed in 20 years. Where do you begin to find the perfect house? The perfect place to retire? The Rays wondered, 'Where do we even start?'

Luckily, the Las Vegas Real Estate Tonnesen Team's Roxanne Wortham Brown had over 27 years with relocation and real estate experience under her belt. She sat down with the couple and asked some key questions: Where was the extended family located? What was important in a home? What did retirement look like? Was golfing or other activities a factor? Social life? Friends?

After deducing some very important aspects of their retirement dreams, it was time for Roxanne to initiate the search. Swimming pools and a single story floor plan was paramount, so touring resale homes with completed pools started the process. After exhausting those options and not finding a good fit, Roxanne turned to a specialized new home program and helped the Rays 'build' their dream home. Not all Realtors have access to this technology, but it saved the day for the Ray family. Roxanne was able to narrow down the perfect home according to the desired square footage, price point and amenities at Nova Ridge at the Cliffs Village in Summerlin.

Finally, construction was complete, and just in time for the holidays too. The house stood absolutely gorgeous with a pool slated to break ground in time for summer. Roxanne was able to negotiate and coordinate contracts and pertinent walkthroughs. All parties worked hand-in-hand to overcome even the smallest of obstacles. Pardee Homes went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate the eager family.

In the end, just like a fairytale, everyone lived happily ever after. According to Roxanne, 'I couldn't have saved the day for this family without the wonderful tools available to me by the Tonnesen Team and Berkshire Hathaway. Without our new home program, I would have had a much harder time in helping the Rays find their way home...find their way to a perfect home'.
