Warren W. Smith
Vice President of Sales

It is exciting to see the continued interest in Toscana even during the warm summer days. We've had a total of 38 sales in 2015 with 18 resale homes and 20 new homes.

There are still buyers looking during the summer. The Sales Executives work all summer and continue to show properties both in person and via our online virtual tours. If you have friends or family interested in Toscana, we have some great values as shown below in our Available Properties in addition to some wonderful new Sunrise Signature Homes that have just been completed.

Our team is solely focused on Toscana and that allows us to best serve the needs of our homeowners. If you are interested in learning more about listing your home or receiving a market evaluation, please do not hesitate to call us at 760-772-7000 or stop by if we can be of any assistance.

Show Home Remodel Project
Three of the Show Homes are a getting a brand new look that will be unveiled in November! We are working with two designers - Cindy Sage FitzHenry of Fitzwell Interiors and Jeff Valenson of Jeff Valenson Design. They have fresh and exciting designs planned and we can't wait for you to see them this fall. The renovations will include floorplan changes along with new flooring, cabinets, countertops, furnishings, art and accessories.

In the 621, changes include updating the great room media wall to accomodate large TV's and a new layout for the master bathroom. Click here to see the new plan.

The 623 has the most dramatic changes with the wall removed between the kitchen and dining room, a large "L"-shaped island added, the soffits over kitchen and wet bar removed and new niches in the living room. Click here to see the new plan.

The master bathroom layout in the 723 has been improved. Click here to see the new plan.
