Community Spotlight: Stratford Crossing in Waukee

Homes and lots are moving fast at Stratford Crossing in Waukee!

We’re not surprised. This community is close to the Waukee Northwest high school and the future Waukee Sports Complex!

We’re building 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom homes from our American Dream Series and our Advantage Series. You’re going to be pleasantly surprised to see homes starting in the low $200s – that’s a great deal in Waukee!

If you haven’t stopped by to look at lots and floor plans yet, then you should do it SOON. We’re in different stages of building for each home and RIGHT NOW is the perfect time to pick out paint colors, features, and talk about upgrades. Call Tammy Heckart, Realtor with RE/MAX CONCEPTS at 515-778-8807 to learn more!

New Floor Plan from Greenland Homes: Impala

We’ve added a new floor plan to our Advantage Series lineup. It’s called the Impala. It’s super spacious and perfect for a growing family with 1,816 square feet!

Room to Grow & Plenty of Storage

There are 4 bedrooms upstairs – the master suite has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. The laundry room is upstairs too, making chores a bit more convenient (I mean no one likes doing laundry!) and keeping the mess upstairs.

The kitchen is open to the great room with an island. There’s a large pantry, plus a drop zone from the garage. There are so many storage options just in the kitchen alone!

The great room is the REAL SHOW STOPPER though, with a fire place for the evening and large windows to let in natural light during the day. This room will definitely be a favorite spot for your family.

You’ll be able to tour this floor plan in Autumn Park West in Grimes soon! Call/text Tammy Heckart, Re/Max Concepts (515-778-8807) to learn more about building this floor plan in one of our communities!

5 in 5 with Danny West, Re/Max Concepts

1. While searching for homes, which Greenland Homes communities will home buyers find you in?

A. You’ll find me in Altoona, currently representing Country Cove Park, WillowBrook Estates, and Meadow Vista South.

2. Why did you choose to represent Greenland Homes?

A. I love representing Greenland Homes because they care about their customers. They build a well-known quality home and are responsive and do a great job listening to their client’s needs.

3. We always ask what your favorite feature or floor plan?

A. Under-cab lighting in the Advantage Series Preston floor plan! This feature is one that you don’t realize how much you love it till you have it in your kitchen. Soft light that really helps set a calming mood especially in the evenings. One of the “must have” to go on your home needs list.

4. What else can you tell us about you?

A. I am getting married in 2020 to my fiancée Molly. I have a 12-year-old daughter Lexee that loves sports (volleyball & softball). I like to do game nights with the family, help Lexee in her sports, and cheer on the Packers!

5. If you had to leave us with an inspirational quote, what would it be?

A. “In order to do something you’ve never done…you have to become someone you’ve never been.” Les Brown

 

“I have used Danny twice in selling two homes in past couple of years and would not hesitate to do it again. His communication skills are excellent telling us what prospects thought, offering advice and in selling the home for great prices. If you’re looking to sell or buy, do yourself a favor and listen to someone who has experienced Danny’s dedication to you. Just make sure you call Danny, then sit back and relax and he will do the rest.

Thanks Buddy, Bob Lohr.”
