Neighbors Unite to Raise Funds for Local Cause

By serving communities, we serve the greater community. Our teams empower residents to give back to important causes close to their own hearts. At Power Ranch in Gilbert, Arizona, this manifests itself in the annual Quartermania fundraiser.

A partnership between the community association and the Association of Power Ranch Entrepreneurs (ASPiRE), the Quartermania auction raises funds for a local charity. This year, the event benefited House of Refuge, a faith-based organization in Mesa helping homeless families in crisis by providing transitional housing and supportive services.

Together, ASPiRE, the on-site team and Power Ranch homeowners raised $12,635.97 – exceeding this year’s goal of $11,000. These funds allowed the Power Ranch Community Association to adopt a House of Refuge home for one year. This adoption includes safe housing, utilities, monthly food boxes, community center access, financial literacy programs, comprehensive support services and more.

Last month, members of the Power Ranch Board of Directors, on-site CCMC team and ASPiRE presented a check to House of Refuge. A plaque recognizing the community’s contribution now hangs on one of the organization’s 88 transitional homes. 

“We set a high bar for Quartermania this year, and our community came together to shatter expectations,” said Rebecca Hill, lifestyle director at Power Ranch. “We’re grateful to everyone who helped make this possible and excited to see how our contribution enables House of Refuge to serve those in need in our community.”

CCMC Communities Featured on RCLCO’s Top 50 List

RCLCO Real Estate Advisors recently released its list of the 2017 Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities, and seven CCMC-managed communities were included.

This news follows a similar list released from John Burns Real Estate Company. John Burns’ list featured six of the communities CCMC serves.

“The RCLCO list affirms that we are privileged to serve some of the country’s most successful communities,” said CEO D. J. Cole. “Appearing on both of these lists is truly an honor and source of pride for these communities, their residents and CCMC.”

RCLCO’s list included:

  • Inspirada | Las Vegas, NV (No. 8)
  • Daybreak | South Jordan, UT (No. 19)
  • Vistancia | Peoria, AZ (No. 20)
  • Cadence | Las Vegas, NV (No. 22)
  • Leyden Rock | Arvada, CO (No. 23)
  • Estrella | Goodyear, AZ | (No. 30)
  • Mountain’s Edge | Las Vegas, NV (No. 40)

“Congratulations to all our top-selling communities and thank you to our teams in these – and all our other – communities, who continue to work tirelessly creating experiences that connect people and ensuring their neighborhoods feel like home for current and potential homeowners,” D. J. added.

Six CCMC Communities Among Top-Selling of 2017

CCMC communities are well represented on John Burns Real Estate Consulting’s list of the Top 50 Master-Planned Communities of 2017. The annual list is based on number of volume of new home sales.

This year’s list saw strong gains in the Phoenix and Las Vegas areas, both of which are among CCMC’s key markets. Developers and builders in these regions have reported improved demand across the full spectrum of buyer types, according to John Burns.

CCMC communities appearing on the 2017 list include:

  • Inspirada | Las Vegas, NV (No. 8)
  • Daybreak | South Jordan, UT (No. 20)
  • Vistancia | Peoria, AZ (No. 21)
  • Cadence | Las Vegas, NV (No. 23)
  • Estrella | Goodyear, AZ | (No. 30)
  • Mountain’s Edge | Las Vegas, NV (No. 41)

“Having the privilege to serve six of the fastest-growing master-planned communities in the country is an honor for CCMC and our local teams,” said CEO D. J. Cole. “I believe it’s also a testament to our ability to build community and create experience that connect people. When considering purchasing a home, buyers are looking at more than location; they’re seeking neighborhood connections, quality amenities, service and pride of ownership. They want to ensure their new community feels like home.”

CCMC to Provide District Management Services to Leyden Rock Metropolitan District

CCMC’s presence in Colorado continues to grow. In 2018, we will begin providing district management services to the Leyden Rock Metropolitan District in Arvada. The Leyden Rock community was created with active families in mind, and more than 60 percent of the community is open space. Amenities include 17 miles of trails, neighborhood parks, a pool and a clubhouse. The community will build out to 1,500 homes.

The Metropolitan District functions similarly to a community association, as a board of directors governs daily operations to manage certain aspects of the community. The state of Colorado permits these organizations as a means to finance community planning and manage critical infrastructure, such as streets and certain utilities.

“We’re excited to expand our services in Colorado with this addition,” said division president Delores Ferguson. “A special thank you to vice president Denise Hogenes, whose work to develop strong relationships with our partners in Colorado led to this recommendation. Denise and the entire Colorado team have gone above and beyond to ensure each of our communities in the region feel like home.”

District management services begin in January. The search for a manager will begin immediately.

Leyden Rock is a project of E5X Management, based in Englewood, Colorado. The company’s portfolio includes projects of varying scopes and sizes. Click here to learn more.
