In January of 2020, we at Rob Rice Homes installed our self-service kiosk at the site of our newest community, Bradbury, in beautiful Tumwater, Washington. We listed one home for sale at the time, with the expectation that the units would sell at their usual pace of about two per month. In less than two months, customer response not only exceeded our expectations, it actually broke our sales record! As of today, we have no completed homes available in the Bradbury development, however, more are coming soon.
The fact that Bradbury’s homebuyers are choosing this community prior to seeing a completed home is a testament to builder and designer Rob Rice’s reputation. With over 3,500 elegant homes in 47 beautiful planned communities, Rob’s expertise in design, functionality and enduring value shine through.
Rob isn’t the only Rob Rice Homes’ team member impacted by our sales boom; our real estate broker, Heather Keating, has spent the past two months ensuring that every one of our new homebuyers received the top-quality, superior service we are known for. Heather, who has been part of the Rob Rice family for a decade, agrees that this season is the busiest she’s ever seen, especially for the presale of homes in the delightful Bradbury community.
“In a market with very limited inventory, our presale program provides buyers a wonderful opportunity to choose their plan, lot and interior options, customizing the most important options of their home,” said Heather. Many features for which other builders charge extra, come standard in all of Rob Rice’s spectacular homes. With our presale plan, buyers have extraordinary influence over the final finishes of their home long before it’s even constructed.
Heather recently accompanied one of her Bradbury presale buyers and our design partner Deanna with Signature Floors & Interiors (pictured) to select custom finishes for their home, including gorgeous slab countertops and stunning tile backsplash. “I love meeting buyers and helping them choose personalized elements for their new home,” she said. “I feel like each one becomes my friend.”
Unlike many independent real estate agents, Heather does not work in general resale, but sells Rob Rice Homes exclusively. She worked for nearly a decade with our Villages of South Hill community before joining us in representing the new Bradbury development. “It’s a great feeling to be part of an exceptional team of professionals,” she said, noting the Rob Rice team’s, “integrity and dedication to providing exceptional quality, great value and the gold star standard of excellence.”
“A home is likely the largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime,” said Heather. “Thurston County has an amazing group of real estate brokers assisting with Rob Rice’s commitment to provide top quality, exceptional value and the development outstanding neighborhoods. It’s great teamwork!”
While Bradbury is nearly sold out of current inventory, there are more elegant yet affordable homes on the way in 2020. If you hurry, we have one home available, to be completed in late March. The Spruce offers 2,445 sq. ft. in a 2-story home with a desirable main-floor master suite. Offered at $434,950, this gorgeous home is located at 9040 Eleanor Dr. SE in Tumwater.
