Whether you want to move to Ann’s Choice now or a few months down the road, no one knows what apartment styles will be available then. 

“We feature 30 different floor plans,” says Sales Counselor Marie Dmoch, “but we’re more than 97% occupied. When you see the dream apartment home that’s right for you, you must strike while the iron is hot.”

Dmoch knows how easy it is for people to put off their move to Erickson Living’s retirement community in Bucks County, Pa. Residents often tell her, “My only regret is that I didn’t move sooner.”

“Don’t let their regret become yours,” she says. “Take that first step and join our priority list.”

The win-win approach to shortening your wait

The priority list, comprised of people who plan to move to an Erickson Living community, allows prospective residents to reserve their place in line for the apartment home of their choice. All it takes to join is a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and a $150-per-person nonrefundable application fee.

When prospective residents submit their deposit, that date is noted as their priority list date. Once their preferred floor plan becomes available, the sales team gives first right of refusal to priority list members based on their joining date. 

Members also can turn to Personal Moving Consultant Colleen Rosica for complimentary coordination of any and all of their realty and moving needs through the Erickson Realty and Moving Services program.

Those services include downsizing, home staging, packing, and selection of a real estate professional.

“Members also receive invitations to exclusive Ann’s Choice priority list events,” says Dmoch. “Each time they return to campus, they become more familiar with our community, and the people who live here, and their future neighbors.”

Living a fuller life

When visitors walk through the doors at Ann’s Choice, they immediately experience the lively atmosphere of conversation, laughter, and engaging activities that signal a vibrant community. 

“Actually,” says Dmoch, “people live more independently here than in their house. They only give up their homeowner responsibilities and their worries.” 

They also live safely and maintenance-free. The Ann’s Choice security and maintenance teams are on the job 24/7, and each is just a phone call away. 

The community’s transportation department provides scheduled shopping shuttles and bus trips to special events in Center City Philadelphia and beyond, freeing residents from the hassles of driving and parking.

And on-site amenities like a fitness and aquatics center, five restaurants, and more than 150 clubs and activities mean residents needn’t rely on family or friends to take them places.

A full-service medical center staffed by Ann’s Choice physicians is on site, too. Appointments last 30 minutes, and residents in need of urgent appointments can be seen that day.

When new residents find themselves living fuller lives, they also realize they don’t miss the things, or the house, they left behind. 

“It’s not the house that matters, it’s the memories” says Dmoch. “You’ll bring those with you, and you’ll make new memories at Ann’s Choice.

“Moving here is the best decision you’ll ever make. It’s a gift you give yourself and a gift you give your family.”
