Buyer Testimonials

We're proud to play a part in creating lasting memories for so many families throughout Southern California. We continuously receive positive feedback from our homeowners, and we're honored that they choose to share their experience with us. Read below to discover why buyers fell in love with their Pacific Communities home.

Owning a beautiful, fortified, and affordable home is the American dream; thanks to Pacific Communities that dream has come true! Our journey with Pacific Willow started initially with an online search for new construction homes within our preferred areas. Right away we were lured in by the pricing, size lots, floor plans, and imaging displayed on the website.

We were about 2 months in on our home quest and knew immediately that we had to check the site out. Promptly we made our first phone call and Debbie the sales agent informed us that but she could give us a walk through at the actual sites. The very next day we met her and when we stepped into the plan 4, though at the very early stages of construction, we fell in love instantaneously and knew right there and then that this home had to be ours, it seemed to have had our names written on it- its floor plan, pricing and location was unbeatable and outstood every other competition in its path. We chose our desired lot and started our relationship with Pacific Communities right away.

Debbie then introduced us to the Deninne Wier; the preferred lender representative from imortgage. Deninne took us through the mandatory qualifications process and in less than a day we were prequalified for the home. Though we had several financing options and lenders at the time, working with Deninne was the easiest, most comfortable, trustworthy, and informative lender who went above and beyond to meet our needs and found the most favorable middle ground for financing our home. Dennine answered every one of our million and sometimes repetitive questions without hesitation to ensure our clear understanding of the process. Not once did we feel like a bother, but rather though she had many other clients, Deninne gave us an experienced that she was not just invested in benefiting the company but she had our interest at heart and our business was of utmost importance.

As the construction process continue, our initial sales agent Debbie introduced us to Terry who took over as our new agent, the transfer was smooth and communication of our requests were well done. Terry then played a great role in suggesting and assisting with getting convenient upgrades within budget. Terry was friendly, very insightful, and never too busy to answer our questions or give us an extra tour , he was on point with meeting our concerns. For example, our desire was to have a sink pre-plumbed in the laundry room. Though the cut-off time had pass, Terry knew how important this was to us and went above and beyond to contact the builder, to get the approval, and to get the job done. He knew exactly what to do to make us comfortable and happy with the investment we were making to buy our new home.

Additionally to the great services rendered by the loan officer and the sales agent, though we have never personally met the builder, from our negotiations and multiple special requests that got approved, often times even giving us additional incentives to meet a middle ground in our negotiations, we felt confident the unseen person was one of character and one who was truly invested in making our experience personal and real.

A few months later our home was complete, escrow was about to be closed and we did the final walk through with the customer service representatives. He was very thorough, diligent, and had a keen eye for any final fixes. Chris the superintendent then worked speedily at any request without hesitation. In fact since we visited the site so many times, we had also developed a relationship with Chris. He was always there, and as the house went through the final stages of construction he welcomed any concerns we had and made attempts to get things to our liking even before the final walk through.

We developed such a relationship with these individuals that even after the purchase of our home, we still visit the office just to say hi to Don and Terry, We still message and see Deninne whom even though escrow has closed still makes the time to answer any concerns and Chris is still around willing to mend simple fixes- we are truly happy and grateful.

Unbelievably, we were first-time home buyers without even a realtor so we knew very little at the start of the process. But these professionals listed above walked us through every step, delivered client-centered professional service and in the end we could not have asked for more. Of course there are few hiccups but most importantly there are measures in place to fix these hiccups and we have seen it put into effect.

Today we are proud homeowners, we are 4 months into our new home and each time we enter our community, pull up on our porch, or step through the doors of our home it takes our breath away. The beauty of this magnificent 4163 sq ft of living space, three car garage, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathroom edifice which includes a media room, den, formal living and dining, kitchen, nook, great room, pantry, washroom and seated on 9500 sq ft of land is an unbelievable masterpiece- built from a mastermind of class- open space with a modern edge architecture that is just astonishing. As a young couple we know our older selves will thank us later for the great investment we have made. Indeed home is where the heart is and our heart is at home at Pacific Willow.

Thank you Pacific Communities for making our dream come true. We are proud and happy homeowners.

“WELCOME HOME” – A huge banner stretched from the porch support to the tiny sapling tree!  We were finally going to move into our new house!  We had watched it take shape from the time it was just a frame on a concrete foundation. The paperwork, qualifying, buying plus selecting our flooring and other beautiful finishes had all been so effortless. Everything just fell so smoothly into place.

The sales office folks became good friends. The construction people from the supervisor to the carpenters recognized us and enjoyed showing us the progress each time we visited.  They seemed as delighted to be building it as we were to watch it being so professionally built. The suppliers were almost as delighted with our selections as we were. We met other buyers in the neighborhood and are looking forward to long friendships with them. By the time we were ready to move in, the house, the neighborhood and all the Pacific Communities Builder personnel were OURS.

Pacific Communities’ Customer Service has kept us very happy with our home, making sure we’re satisfied with the quality. We’re watching eagerly as more houses are built and new neighbors arrive. Now that we’ve lived here a while, we, and our friends and family, all love everything about our home and neighborhood. We now greet our visitors with, “WELCOME HOME”!

We chose Pacific Communities because Gigi and I were looking for a new home opportunity that offered good price and great value. We knew we wanted to live in a nice area where we could build a foundation and grow our family. This new home and neighborhood has been a tremendous blessing to our family. Due to the exceptional value of our home, we found our reason to stay in California, as Nevada was our second choice.

The Pacific Communities team was wonderful, from customer service to sales. The superintendent, subs, and sales were welcoming and put us at ease. We feel that the best days are ahead for us here at this community and are reminded when we wake up to see the mountains each morning.

My husband and I moved from Central California to be near our families.  We were not in the market for a 55 plus gated community, but one day when we were in the area looking at homes I saw the Orchid sign and after talking my husband into just looking, we found that we actually really liked the homes, location, and the price values.  After talking with Mary Ellen who we felt comfortable with right away and going over the details of what the community would offer to us and the cost and values of the homes  we decided this was a great place to live.

We are so grateful we made the decision to purchase a home with Orchid.  We just love it here and have met so many wonderful friends and also started a “meet and greet” once a month so the community can get to know one another which has been very successful and a lot of fun!  One of the great parts of our home is when we look out of our kitchen window we can view beautiful Idyllwild as this is where my husband and I were married 27 years ago.  I am also excited to share my sister and her husband have fallen in with Orchid too and will be moving here in May.

My husband and I have been searching for the “right home” and couldn’t find it in any of the senior communities we had looked at. Ron mentioned he had seen signs along the freeway for the “Orchid assisted living community” in Menifee. We happened to be close by at an open house in another senior community and as we made our way home to Temecula, I saw the Orchid signs with one exception – no mention of assisted living. My husband had misread the signs. I immediately made him turn around and go back to Menifee to view the Pacific Communities Orchid models.

The minute we walked into the model office, we were hooked – we loved the Plan 1 layout, the amenities, the construction of the home, the price point, the feel of the neighborhood, the individual homes with the front yards and perfect back yard area for our patio and gardens.

Mary Ellen, Robert, and Felix were so informative and helpful – we have never encountered such an excellence in customer service. They were the true definition of a team, who is never too busy to answer any questions or offer assistance.

Ron and I moved into our new”right home” a few days ago and could not be happier.

My family took residence in Moreno Valley (Rancho Belago) 11 years ago, when the market prices of homes were amazing. During a hike on the many trails here we spotted the homes designed by Pacific Communities and realized that this is where we wanted to be. Pacific Communities has designed the most beautiful exterior and interior homes that I have ever encountered in my life. Their homes are extremely spacious, great for entertaining and of course, “Bragging Rights.”

In our community we have the best of both worlds. City views that are breathtaking as well as mountain views with unbelievable sightings of wildlife. Coming from the Los Angeles County area where the homes are small and extremely expensive, Pacific Communities’ homes are a dream come true. I could not wait to have my family see what Pacific Communities has offered to my family. I was so excited to share my blessings with my friends and family. After all, I had all the room in the world to have them all here to celebrate with my spacious kitchen and extra large bonus room.

Buying from Pacific Communities was quite far the best decision I have ever made. Thank you for making our dream come true.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Pacific Communities Builder for our dream home! The introduction to this community came at a pivotal time in our life. As I was planning my retirement, my wife and I were conflicted about a possible move. However, upon touring the Pacific Communities homes and community in Menifee, we quickly made up our minds. We were immediately charmed by the homes and the neighborhood. The floor plans are generous and we fell in love with the quality and finishes. I was personally very impressed with the open concept that allows for an easy flow in all the homes.

In addition, the sales office for PCB is excellent. The office personnel were very patient with us, very knowledgeable, and experienced. They worked closely with us to make our move a reality. The home itself is well built and high quality, with a very simple and smart design that was immediately appealing to us. The quality of the home and the available options allowed us to personalize our home before we moved in. The value and price of the home made the purchase a very sound financial investment and decision. Purchasing this home from PCB was a great choice. I can’t believe I finally have my first new home and was able to retire and enjoy it! Living the Dream!

My wife and I have been extremely impressed with the staff and management at Pacific Communities. They have treated us as a valued customer with absolutely no problem too small to be addressed.

I am especially pleased with the effort they have put into making sure our home was completed inside and out in a manner that makes us proud as home owners.

I would highly recommend the Pacific Communities organization in the Antelope Valley to others who are interested in working with a professional and ethical organization that builds quality homes and stands behind their work.

Very seldom do you come across a company that understands the true value in new home construction and what is a fair and reasonable price for their properties.

For Pacific Communities, building homes may be their business, but delivering exceptional customer satisfaction is truly their passion. Dante and LaToya Jamison’s purchase of their second Pacific Communities home further attests the builder’s enduring commitment to its new homebuyers – and existing homeowners.

“Our very first home purchase, back in 2002, was a Pacific Communities home,” Dante Jamison stated proudly. “And like most first-time buyers, my wife LaToya and I were anxious about making our first big purchase.” Luckily, Pacific Communities made the process a little easier for the young couple. “Our salesperson made us feel so comfortable and welcome,” LaToya said. “We had a lot of questions, especially about financing, but she was exceptionally patient and understanding with us. As first-time homebuyers, we were so relieved and thankful to have such a positive experience.”

The Jamisons’ first home, a spacious floorplan from the builder’s earlier “Pacific Collections” neighborhood in Palmdale, proved to be a very rewarding investment for the couple. “When we were shopping for our home, we distinctly remembered how Pacific Collections’ roominess and added features stood apart from the competitors,” Dante explained. “In fact, we had even been considering buying resale property, including older homes. But, we just kept going back to Pacific Collections.” Added LaToya, “These homes offered so much more, and we found the combination of value and quality irresistible.”

The Jamison family, now blessed with three children – Dante Jr., 7; Demani, 4; and Demarius, 3 – are enjoying life in their current Pacific Collections home. However, with the expansion of their family, the Jamisons soon became eager for more room to spread out and grow. “When we were ready to start searching for our second home, we already knew what we wanted: the same high standards we had already come to know and appreciate with our first Pacific Communities home,” Dante explained. “As you can imagine, that made it really easy to decide who to turn to first for our next purchase.”

Coincidentally, the Jamisons were the first to register on the interest list for Pacific Highland, the builder’s newer community in Palmdale at the time. “When we first heard about Pacific Highland, we knew we had to act fast. It was going to be the neighborhood for us,” LaToya insisted. Indeed, the Jamisons locked in early on the home of their dreams at Pacific Highland – a Plan 6, one of the largest plans available – complete with a super loft, media niche, exercise room and more. “We feel lucky to be among the first to get chosen for this community,” added Dante.

Although Dante works in Los Angeles, quite a distance from Palmdale, he doesn’t seem to mind his commute so much. “It’s nice to know you have a beautiful place to go home to,” he smiled. “That’s what matters to me. And we really appreciate our neighborhood and overall location. We’re close to new shopping and schools, which makes it convenient for our family. And we love going to Lake Elizabeth. There’s a lot to do out here, and it’s nice knowing everything’s nearby.”

“We know that we’ll be happy at Pacific Highland for many, many more years to come.”

Valerie Taylor fondly remembers the night when she and her husband Barry picked out their floor plan at Pacific Etiwanda. They were sitting in their car, parked right outside the sales office, the night before the community’s initial phase release. The couple was determined to be one of the very first buyers at Pacific Etiwanda, a neighborhood by Pacific Communities.

“We spent the night in the parking lot so we could get the house we wanted,” said Valerie, laughing at the recollection. “But going over the brochure and floor plans that night in the parking lot, we changed our minds. We chose a different house.”

Valerie and Barry bought their Plan 2 home from Pacific Etiwanda’s Vineyard Series in 2001. After looking at other communities, Valerie and Barry were drawn to Pacific Etiwanda because of the spacious floor plans, the value and the location.

Joining Valerie and Barry in the then brand-new community was Valerie’s niece and her niece’s fiancé. “They asked our advice on where we were buying,” Valerie said. Her recommendation of Pacific Etiwanda led the engaged couple to join Valerie and Barry’s parking lot campout. The next day, they bought their first home, where they still happily reside, from Pacific Etiwanda’s Meadows Series.

Valerie and Barry knew they could count on Pacific Communities to build them a quality home. “I was familiar with them as a builder,” said Valerie, who sold homes for Pacific Communities for about two years in the mid-1990s. “I knew we’d get a good home.”

Valerie and Barry particularly enjoy the spaciousness and usefulness of their family room and kitchen area. The two rooms flow effortlessly into one another. “It is very, very open and has a huge island and access to the backyard through French doors,” said Valerie, describing the space. The family room and kitchen area are perfect for entertaining. “We are always having a lot of people over,” Valerie added.

In every neighborhood they build, Pacific Communities offers buyers a host of popular options to ensure that each home is perfectly suited to the owners. “We didn’t have to go someplace else for the options,” said Valerie, explaining yet another reason why she and Barry bought a Pacific Communities home. She describes their experience with the builder’s home customizing and buying process as “very seamless.”

Valerie and Barry enjoy a little more than 2,800 square feet of living space in their Pacific Communities home, which has three bedrooms and three baths. The couple chose a home with a three-car garage. The downstairs den, which could have become an optional bedroom, serves as an office. Valerie and Barry both work from home. In addition, the couple chose to convert an upstairs bedroom into an inviting master suite retreat.

Since Valerie and Barry bought their Pacific Etiwanda home, their son Christopher, now 20, and daughter Michelle, now 23, have both moved out. “As empty nesters, we are deciding what to do with all the space,” Valerie said. The couple envisions an upstairs game room in Christopher’s former space, a huge room that they optioned to convert from a bonus room into a single bedroom.

Amongst the numerous modern amenities that Pacific Communities offers in every home, Valerie mentions the fireplace in the family room as a favorite. She says the couple’s dog, Seneca, is “a permanent fixture” in front of the fireplace in winter. “She just sits and stares into the fireplace even if there’s no fire going,” said Valerie with a laugh.

After years in their Pacific Communities home, Valerie and Barry are still content with their house and community. Valerie notes that Rancho Cucamonga is now a bigger metropolis but that the growth hasn’t detracted from the city’s appeal. “We’ve met some good people,” Valerie said. “We’ve made lifelong friends.”

When Scott and Stephanie Huffman began to consider the purchase of a new home at Pacific Manor in Lancaster, they were already quite experienced as homebuyers, having previously owned four homes, three new and one used. They also had the benefit of living in homes by several well-known builders. In short, they knew what they were looking for and what to expect.

“We are very pleased with the open plan and its flex space,” commented Scott, who is a high school resource specialist. “We are also pleased to have a large, pool-size lot. It gives us our privacy, but we still feel like we are part of the neighborhood.”

“My favorite aspect of the house is the kitchen,” said Stephanie Huffman, a speech therapist. “I love the central island. It ties the kitchen into the breakfast area and family room very nicely. Also, the pantry is a huge walk-in and the double oven is a convenient bonus for meals and entertaining.”

“Energy efficiency was another factor that was important to us,” said Scott. “Pacific Communities has designed this home with efficient, high quality systems for heating, A/C, electrical and water usage.”

“We were also pleased with the high quality of many standard features,” added Scott. “The laundry room, for example, came with a laundry tub and overhead cabinets, there is designer recessed lighting in certain areas and the architecture is well detailed.”

The Huffmans are also enjoying their neighborhood, “when we had our new baby, wonderful people came over with gifts to congratulate us,” concluded Scott. “We were very touched by their caring. I can see that this is a neighborhood where families look out for one another.”

Pacific Manor was one of the most successful and popular new home neighborhoods in the Quartz Hill area of Lancaster, priced from the high $300,000s and featured 2,359 to 4,795 square feet of spaciousness, flexibility, and adaptability to meet the needs of growing families and evolving lifestyles.

As a member of the military family, Staff Sergeant Marcos Diaz passionately works to guarantee Americans a secure country to live in. And as a member of the Diaz family, he now proudly provides a comfortable, happy place for them to call home at Pacific Discovery.

When the Diaz family began their search for a new home in the Palmdale area, they had a myriad of options to choose from. With countless new home communities continually on the rise throughout the Antelope Valley, Sergeant Diaz and his family honed in on high quality construction and comfortable, spacious floorplans as their top priorities. It was no surprise when the Diaz family selected Pacific Communities as their builder of choice – for the second time.

As one of Pacific Discovery’s satisfied homeowners, the Diaz family had built a strong bond with the builder through their previous Pacific Communities home.

“I knew I could count on Pacific Communities again for a quality home at an outstanding price,” explained Sergeant Diaz. “At Pacific Discovery, my wife Bertha and I were immediately impressed by the size and construction of the homes – and the people were so caring. We had a lot of questions, and our salesperson was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. Our experience with Pacific Communities was once again outstanding.”

The Diaz family has since settled in and loves their new life at Pacific Discovery. “We’re so comfortable and happy here,” said Sergeant Diaz. “Our daughter Yahaira loves her new bedroom, especially her spacious closet. Marcos, our little one, seems happy in every room of our home. He’s only 8 months old.”

Pacific Discovery, one of Palmdale’s most popular communities, offers top quality at an exceptional value, with homes starting from the $300s. Adding more value to Pacific Discovery are its well-designed floorplans, offering maximum space for families of all sizes.

“We visited many new communities, and most of the homes felt very small and closed-in,” continued Diaz. “Pacific Communities did an excellent job in creating wide-open floorplans at Pacific Discovery. Every room in our home is exceptionally spacious and comfortable. You can tell that the floorplan layout was very thoughtfully arranged and designed.”
