Jerry and Marcia Anderson, with their Cavachons Teddy Bear and Tiffany Love, had been on Wind Crest’s priority list for ten years when a brand-new apartment home in Prospect Crossing inspired them to move sooner from New England.

“There’s never been a better time to join the priority list at Wind Crest,” says Sales Counselor Sandy Shelpuk. “As we prepare to open two new residence buildings this year, Summit Square and Quincy Point, it’s so important to plan now to make sure an apartment home is available when you’re ready to move.”

The Highlands Ranch, Colo., Erickson Living-managed community has long been a popular choice for retirees. But brand-new apartment homes in the final neighborhood of development are generating more interest among those looking for amenity-rich, maintenance-free living. 

Wind Crest is currently accepting reservations for Summit Square and Quincy Point, which are reportedly selling quickly. Summit Square is slated to open in June, with Quincy Point opening in October. 

“There’s no better way to plan for retirement than to join our priority list,” says Sales Counselor Tony Stephenson. “Especially because we’re seeing an increase in appointments from people who are curious about the new buildings and want to plan their move now.”

The priority list is the first step in moving to Wind Crest. It not only acts as a waiting list for the apartment home style of your choice, but it also allows you to get to know Wind Crest and your future neighbors. Priority list members get invited to exclusive community events and can even try clubs and activities before moving. So you feel at home even before settling in.

Additionally, priority list members are the first to know of planned construction projects and updates. “It’s a great way to simply stay informed about what’s happening here,” Shelpuk says.

While you never lose your place in line on the list, if someone before you turns down an apartment home, you have the chance to move in sooner than you might have expected. “As we move into what is our final phase of development, this may be your last chance to move into a brand-new apartment,” Stephenson says.  

Seller’s market

Another unique aspect priority list members can take advantage of is Erickson Realty and Moving Services. Each Erickson Living-managed community has its own local personal moving consultant who provides complimentary coordination of all realty and moving needs, including downsizing, home staging, packing, and selection of a real estate professional.

Personal Moving Consultants Beth Brandenburg and Sandy Woudstra can come to your home for a complimentary visit and moving assessment. 

“It’s currently a seller’s market in and around the Denver area,” says Woudstra. “With favorable interest rates, new homebuyers are highly motivated. If you’re considering a move to Wind Crest, now is the time to list your house, and Beth and I can help.”

Priority list success

Marcia and Jerry Anderson have watched Wind Crest expand from its very first neighborhood, as they visited from New England ten years ago and joined the priority list at that time. “We followed the progress and decided this was the time to do it, when we could complete the move ourselves and not be a burden on anyone,” Marcia says. 

While they were keeping tabs on Wind Crest, they had learned about Prospect Crossing, one of the newer buildings that opened last April. Because they had been on the priority list, they were able to choose a beautiful apartment home with cathedral ceilings and a balcony for their two Cavachons, Teddy Bear and Tiffany Love.

“We chose Wind Crest for the weather, location near one of our children, and all the amenities and opportunities here,” Marcia says.

Jerry adds that after a lifetime of New England winters, he’s looking forward to a winter where he doesn’t have to shovel snow or worry about getting around outside.
