Determination Pays Off for New Homebuyer at Brookfield Homes in Ontario

ONTARIO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - New Brookfield homeowner, Zelda Lemento achieved a dream milestone in her life with confidence and determination. Highly motivated to own a brand new home at GreenDoor at Edenglen, and enjoy the many advantages in Ontario, Zelda tells of getting real help and guidance from the Brookfield Homes sales team at GreenDoor.

"I met with the sales team and they set up a savings budget for me. My goal was to come in every two weeks to deposit savings into an escrow account. I did it! Newly single, I wanted something that was all mine."

Her advice for others who might think they can't afford a new home is, "Set a goal. You can't achieve something without it. I won't say it's not sometimes hard, but you have to work for what you really want. I am proof you can do it. Dare to reach for your dreams."

"I love my Wells Fargo loan," Zelda shared. "It is set up so that I can make small payments weekly, and don't have a full mortgage payment monthly. This way it's much more manageable for me." Zelda accomplished all of this while completing her AA degree and is now working toward her Bachelor of Arts diploma.

The spacious design of GreenDoor's Plan One detached home gave Zelda; Wendolyn, her roommate; and her high school junior son everything they wanted. With three bedrooms, two baths and an office, they can comfortably share their home together.

"I wanted something brand new, on a corner, with a big kitchen and gourmet island where everyone could just hang out and watch me cook."

The kitchen is just one thing Zelda looks forward to every day. A beautiful master suite and a welcoming and recreation-filled community fulfill other wish list items. Her son especially enjoys swimming at the community pool. Plus they love their Ontario address, and access to all that the city has to offer.

The extra garage storage space, up to three-car flex parking, private yards for year-round outdoor living give the Lemento's a full measure of value. They've also gained a long list of technologically advanced and energy-efficient features, including solar panels that contribute to monthly energy savings. Edenglen also offers a low HOA fee and low property tax rate that add to ongoing savings and superior affordability of GreenDoor.

GreenDoor offers four single-family home designs with open floor plans that range from approximately 1,710 to 2,054 square feet, the homes encompass three to four bedrooms and up to three baths, start in the low $300,000s.
