Three and a half years ago, Iâ€™d never been to Union City.Â My first visit to Talavera was right after I started at SummerHill.Â For Talaveraâ€™s 1st sales release, there was a tent set-up in the parking lot to announce the release.Â The homes were just barely started and the models hadnâ€™t even opened yet.
Well, Talavera has come a long way in 3 years, Debra, the awesome community sales manager, has been there to sell 206 homes.Â Amazing.Â Sheâ€™s even gotten into our new social media campaign and has posted photos on Talaveraâ€™s Facebook page.Now she is selling the final 4 homes, including two of the models.Â The great news is that these homes are ready for move in before the holidays.Â And, they are well-planned for easy entertaining with your family.Â Â Youâ€™ll be sure to enjoy your turkey, sinangag (garlic rice) Buddhaâ€™s delight or any other holiday foods that appeal to your family.Â Got a special recipe?Â Weâ€™d love to try it, just share it with us in the comments section.
Once the holidays are over, youâ€™ll have time to appreciate the other benefits of Talavera.Â The location canâ€™t be beat.Â If you commute across the Bay to the Peninsula, youâ€™re just off the 84 at the last exit before the Dumbarton Bridge.Â Commute to an office in the East Bay?Â Youâ€™ll also be close to the 880 making it easy to get where you need to be.
And, then thereâ€™s so much to do when you get home.Â Take the kids out to the 4-acre park, complete with a soccer field and play structure, right inside Talavera.Â Or if you like to run as I do, the Alameda Creek Trail is just across the street from Talavera.Â Debra thought I was a bit extreme when I went out for a 9 mile run on the trail in 2006 when I was training for a half-marathon, but it was literally a great place for a nice, long run.
Or just enjoy a quiet evening in your beautiful, new single-family home.
Need a bit of adventure away from home?Â Union Landing is very close to Talavera for plenty of shopping and dining options.Â Check out iFly, where you can â€œsky diveâ€ inside.Â Donâ€™t believe me?Â You just have to check it out.Â Or hit the movies at the 25-plex Cinemark theaters.
It will be bittersweet to sell-out at Talavera, but we love all the new homeowners that are now members of our SummerHill family.
