It is great to see all the Members enjoying themselves around the Club. When we are on tours with prospective Members and Homeowners, we love to show them all the different Club activities and everyone having a fun time. It is clear that Toscana is the place to be!

The Toscana Sales Team continues to be the overall volume leader in Toscana with 96% (25) of all the transactions in 2013 including 15 resales! See below for the complete summary of the sales activity and other highlights:

  • 16 resale homes and estate homesites (15 sold by Toscana).
