Neal Communities Brings Together Two Generations

Wednesday, August 30, 2017  |  Homeowner Stories

When Ken and Chris Perun started their search for a home in southwest Florida to retire in, they had no idea where their journey would lead them.

Once they decided on Naples, Maria Bokius, their Realtor with TMB Realty, recommended that they look at the new carriage home community, Avalon of Naples, built by Neal Communities.

“Avalon of Naples has an ideal location, just minutes from downtown Naples and all of the restaurants, shopping and beaches,” said the Peruns. “The location combined with the coastal feel of the community spoke to us immediately.”

The Peruns fell in love with the Windemere floor plan that features two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den. The layout also boasts a one-car attached garage, open family room and a large kitchen with breakfast nook.

“When Melissa Nicoletta, our New Home Sales Representative at Avalon of Naples, took us through some of the buildings under construction, the superior quality of construction that Neal Communities delivers in their homes was very apparent,” says Ken, who was a co-owner in a construction management company in Connecticut and recently retired. “Having been in the construction industry, quality of construction was extremely important to me.”

Located on the corner of County Barn Road and Davis Boulevard, Avalon of Naples is selling fast. The community has four beautiful model homes featuring two to three bedrooms, two bathrooms and one or two-car garages. The homes range in price from $277,990 to $305,990. The sales office and furnished model homes are open daily at 6919 Avalon Circle in Naples.

Justin, Ken and Chris’s son, flew from his home in Chicago, Ill. to join his parents in the search for their new home. “I immediately fell in love with the wildlife and lifestyle Naples offered,” says Justin.

Justin liked the area so much that he flew his fiancé, Ashley Johnson, in from Chicago to show her Naples. She also fell in love with all that Naples has to offer. The Chicago couple, who are to be married in May 2018, called up their parent’s Realtor and soon were out house hunting for a home of their own.

Justin and Ashley were so impressed with the quality Neal Communities offered that they purchased a Starlight home in Canopy, a Neal Communities neighborhood also located in Naples.

“We just loved the home and the pool overlooking the lake and preserve,” says the couple. “It is a huge lifestyle change from Chicago. Since we are getting married and will be starting a family of our own, it just made sense to move near my parents,” Justin says.

Characterized by well-maintained landscaped streets and lake or preserve views for most homes, Canopy combines the serenity of Florida nature and the opportunity to own an affordable, brand-new home, in Naples. It features maintenance-assisted homes and a gated entry, which add to the allure of this well-designed community. Only two opportunities remain in Canopy, which homes starting at $449,189. Canopy is located at 3783 Canopy Circle in Naples.
