Like test-driving a new car or tasting the samples in a grocery store, most people enjoy the opportunity to try before they buy.

At Brooksby Village, those interested in the Peabody, Mass., Erickson Living community, have a chance to do that very thing through the community’s Live the Life program, an initiative that gives prospective residents a firsthand look at the Brooksby lifestyle.

“Our Live the Life program has taken off because it allows people to stay at the community and see what life here is really like,” says Sue Davis, sales director at the Peabody community. “Our guest suite has been booked solid for the past several months.”

The Tribune recently sat down with Sales Counselor Jane Kiegel to learn more about Brooksby’s Live the Life program.

Q: What does a Live the Life stay at Brooksby include?

A: The Live the Life experience is typically a three-day, two-night stay on campus in our beautifully appointed guest suite. This complimentary program includes meals during the stay and access to activities and classes.

Q: Are there opportunities to customize a Live the Life stay?

A: Stefanie Graves, our events coordinator, works with guests to create a personalized schedule for their visit. Activities, resident interactions, dining reservations, and the opportunity to experience the community’s nightlife are tailored to suit the individual tastes of each guest.

Q: Why do you think the Live the Life program is so popular among prospective residents?

A: Live the Life gives our customers the unique opportunity to test drive the campus before they make a decision to move. Fear of the unknown can make this decision so difficult. Giving people the ability to meet residents, try the restaurants, and sample our classes and activities provides a much better sense of what it feels like to live at Brooksby.

Q: What feedback have you received from people who have participated in Live the Life?

A: The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Customers are telling us they had no idea how much they would enjoy life within the community. It also familiarizes people with the campus itself, which can be very helpful when it comes time to select the location of their apartment at Brooksby.

Q: Do you have to be on the priority list to participate in Live the Life?

A: Live the Life is one of the many benefits of joining the priority list. Whether you see yourself moving in several months or several years, joining the priority list is the best way to guarantee you’ll have a home at Brooksby once you’re ready.

Q: How do I join the priority list?

A: All it takes to join the priority list is a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and a nonrefundable processing fee of $150 per person. The day you join the priority list becomes your priority date. This gives you preference over everyone else who joins after you, so you can secure your favorite apartment when the time is right.
