When Pat Young and her husband Wayne moved to Highland Springs in May 2016, they were focused on the maintenance-free lifestyle, abundant amenities, and built-in social opportunities.

Real estate’s spring selling season is upon us, and if 2019 is your year to consider vibrant retirement living, no doubt financial considerations are at the top of your list.

Most of the 145 clubs at Highland Springs are open to all, but there’s one group that’s just for the guys.

The Men’s Breakfast Club at the North Dallas Erickson Living community meets every other Friday morning at the Fireside Grille, one of five on-site restaurants, for breakfast and a guest speaker.

It’s been one year since Pete Robertson completed a long-held goal, and now he has a book to show for his efforts.

Pete’s book, Home Is Where the Heart Is, was published by WestBow Press under his given name, Bryce Robertson, and is available for purchase online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

When Joyce Glivinski cut the ribbon at the grand opening of Twin Oaks Square, the newest residence building to open at Highland Springs, it was the culmination of a journey she didn’t see coming.

You can’t always anticipate the next bend in the road. Just ask Tom and Kris Allison.

“I’m as surprised as anyone,” says Kris. “If you told me two years ago I’d be married and living at Highland Springs, I wouldn’t have thought it possible.”

When Highland Springs opened its newest residence building, Twin Oaks Square, in August 2018, one special group of guests was among the first to tour the new space.
