ONTARIO, Calif., March 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Families are finding their happy place at New Haven in Ontario Ranch, where seven home collections are selling, and over 400 happy homeowners enjoy beautiful neighborhoods, excellent recreation and a vibrant, friendly community. 

Vince Lopez is one of many delighted homeowners at New Haven but has a unique distinction—he lives and works at the community. “I was looking for a new home in the Chino/Chino Hills area,” he says. “But my wife kept talking about a new Ontario community she saw online—it was New Haven!” The decision to buy a townhome at Holiday was almost immediate for the couple, yet one surprise confirmed their decision: Vince realized his employer, loanDepot, was the preferred mortgage lender for Brookfield Residential, the master developer of New Haven. “That clinched the deal,” he says. Especially since his purchase led to a significant lifestyle perk—virtually no work commute. “I had the opportunity to transfer to loanDepot’s Ontario branch and I jumped at it,” he reveals. Now, as a loan officer for New Haven he gladly assists new buyers make their homeownership dreams come true at New Haven. “The people I’m helping here are going to be my future neighbors and I want them to know what a great community they’re joining.” New Haven is built around a lifestyle brimming with family recreation, parks, community social events, fitness classes and much more, including a welcoming atmosphere where neighbors become friends and the good stuff happens all year round.

For Vince and his family, that good stuff has made his own homeownership experience extraordinary. “The amenities are wonderful at New Haven and my kids have never been happier,” he remarks. His family are regulars at The Resort and Picnic Park, where they enjoy the pool, splash zone, and playground. He and his wife also appreciate the central location near shopping, dining, freeways and more. “Eastvale Gateway is great for errands,” he notes, and while he can literally “walk to the community sales office for work” on weekends, having the 15, 60 and 91 freeways nearby are a big convenience.

“My family loves living here and we knew it was something special even through the buying process,” he reflects. “Our sales team was exceptional.” He was consistently kept up-to-date on the progress of his new home and when he stopped in to the sales office, the sales team was always helpful and welcoming.

“Overall, purchasing at New Haven has been a great decision for my family, and as a Loan Consultant here, I feel lucky I can help other families do the same.”

Ontario Ranch, located within the city of Ontario, California, will span across 8,000+ acres and has been thoughtfully planned with attainably priced new neighborhoods, modern amenities and abundant recreation, elements that are the foundation of a well-rounded lifestyle. The future Chaffey Park will be the centerpiece of Ontario Ranch, a sprawling open space with parks and trails for playing, walking and exploring the outdoors. It has been sensibly planned to align with the goals of the Healthy Ontario Initiative and its efforts to provide residents with opportunities to enrich their wellbeing. Ontario Ranch is envisioned as a mixed‐use area that will encompass residential neighborhoods, commercial facilities and recreational amenities.
