Kristine Kluge is one of two sales counselors at Siena Lakes.

Kristine Kluge had it all figured out. After two previous stints as a Florida resident and a decade of vacationing in Fort Myers, Michigan native Kluge and her husband bought a house in the area, where they planned to eventually retire.

But when the exciting opportunity arose to help launch Siena Lakes, a brand-new Erickson Senior Living community in neighboring Naples, she knew her move to Florida would be sooner than expected.

A bright beginning

“Getting in on the ground floor of a new community is such a unique experience,” says Kluge, now a Siena Lakes sales counselor. “It’s incredible to watch it grow.”

This isn’t Kluge’s first time in a
senior living community sales office. Before coming to Siena Lakes, she was the personal moving consultant for several years at Fox Run—another Erickson community in Novi, Mich. With 25 years of experience with Erickson Living under her belt, Kluge is ready for this new challenge.

Kluge’s current position allows her to interact with prospective residents every day. “I love meeting such a variety of people, learning about their lives and interests,” she says.

So much to look forward to

Being a sales counselor also allows Kluge to share all the exciting news about Siena Lakes with others. “I like to tell people that they can look forward to amenities and activities galore,” she says, “and a fabulous sense of community.”

For those interested in learning more about Siena Lakes, Kluge recommends stopping by the sales center. Not only can people chat with her or another member of the sales team, they can also peruse floor plans, take virtual tours, and more.

On a personal note

One of the things about Siena Lakes that Kluge most identifies with is the close-knit community spirit. She grew up as one of four girls (two sets of twins!) and loves digging into genealogy: “I’ve become my family historian!”

And when she’s not cheering on her beloved Detroit Tigers—in person, of course, when she can—Kluge is enjoying Florida’s enchanting blue skies, sunshine, and beaches.

It’s clear that Kluge loves showing people the magic of a Siena Lakes lifestyle. And even though the community has yet to be built, there’s plenty to see and learn. “Come visit our beautiful sales center,” she says to her Naples neighbors. “My door is always open!”
