‘Exclusive’ is the right word to describe Siena Lakes’ priority list

Created date

November 29th, 2019

My name is Suzy McAllister, and I’m one of the sales counselors here at Siena Lakes, the new senior living community coming to North Naples, Fla. If you’ve been wondering what it means to join Siena Lakes’ priority list, I can share all the benefits this exclusive membership provides. 

Joining the priority list is the best way to discover everything that Siena Lakes has to offer and is a smart financial decision for many reasons. A $1,000 refundable deposit opens up a plethora of benefits, events, and assistance not available to the general public. Here are just a few of the many perks you can look forward to.

Special events for members only

Periodically, you’ll receive invitations to a variety of exclusive Priority List events, including seminars, parties, trips and travel opportunities, and social events. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know your future neighbors.  

For example, recently a presenter spoke on the topic “In the Gardens of Claude Monet’s Giverny” at Siena Lakes’ sales center while attendees enjoyed tea and finger sandwiches. It gave attendees the chance to be immersed in the Siena Lakes culture while enjoying a complimentary meal and presentation.

Live the Life program

Want to live like a resident? This fantastic program lets you experience the amenities at Siena Lakes before you move. Keep an eye out for this future opportunity once the community is built.

Advance news, information, savings opportunities

You will be the first to be notified of any new information, including apartment home availability, services, custom interiors options, new construction, and special money-saving offers. This gives you a distinct advantage over the general public. 

A secure spot in line

Your spot on the priority list is determined by your priority date, the date you joined the list. You have the advantage of reserving available apartment homes ahead of those who joined after you. Even if you decide to pass on the available homes and continue to wait, your position in line won’t change. 

Membership transfer

Your priority list membership is transferable to any current or future Erickson Living communities across the country. Best of all, your original priority date will still be honored, so you don’t have to worry about losing your spot in line.

Realty, moving services

Once you start to plan your move to Siena Lakes, you can take advantage of exclusive access to Erickson Realty and Moving Services, a special program that simplifies your move from start to finish. Even if you’re not ready to move right away, there are some important steps you should take today: 

• Schedule a home visit. As your Siena Lakes sales counselor, I can come right to your door to help develop a plan that’s tailor-made for you. Contact the sales and information office to schedule a time.

Make a financial plan. If you have financial questions, I or a member of the sales team will help you work through your options and develop a plan.

• Learn about the resources available to you. I can connect you with downsizers, packers, movers, painters, landscapers, estate sale experts, home stagers, and so much more.

• Connect with a local real estate agent. Let me recommend a trusted real estate expert to help you sell quickly and for a fair price. If you sell your house through one of our preferred real estate professionals and move to our community, we’ll reimburse up to $2,000 of your approved moving expenses.

Entrance fee choices

You’ve worked hard to build your nest egg, so you’ll want to consider choosing a Type C fee-for-service community like Siena Lakes. You’ll have the option of securing your apartment home with a onetime entrance fee that is either 80% refundable or nonrefundable. Most importantly, you’ll only pay for higher levels of care if you need them. (Ask to see Siena Lakes' Residence and Care Agreement, which has all the details.)

Predictable monthly expenses

Because your apartment home is maintenance-free, you can forget about costly hassles like house repairs, unpredictable utility bills, and property taxes. Your monthly service package covers all your utilities, day-to-day expenses, campus amenities, a choice meal plan, biweekly housekeeping and linen services, and a 24-hour concierge.

Healthy peace of mind

Wellness is woven into every aspect of life at Siena Lakes—from nutritious meals and fitness opportunities to the convenient on-site medical center. With a wealth of stimulating activities and social opportunities, you’ll feel fit in mind, body, and spirit.

“I am very excited to see such a strong and positive response to Siena Lakes since we opened our sales center earlier this year,” says Fred Moschetta, sales director at Siena Lakes. “Our priority list is growing daily. In fact, we have guests walking in to join because all of their friends have already done so. Our location is a hit, our floor plans are a hit, our variety of amenities are a hit, and our timing is a hit. Come visit the sales center and we’ll tell you all about Siena Lakes.”
