Domani, The Rilington Group's 55+ active lifestyle gated community in Palm Desert, recently became the perfect second home for Debbie and Tom McCready of La Habra, California. "We have been coming to the desert for years and always loved it, even the summers," laughs Tom. The couple had owned a timeshare in Palm Desert at Marriott Shadow Ridge. "We decided we wanted to own a new home in the desert to enjoy on weekends and vacations. A friend told us about Domani, and it just felt right for us from the moment we saw it," Debbie recalls.

The McCreadys originally chose Residence 4, a 3-bedroom and 3-bath 1,825 square foot home. After thinking about it they decided the smaller Residence 1 at 1,586 square feet was a better fit for a second home lifestyle. "We called Casey Erickson, Domani's Community Sales Manager, and explained that the smaller home was what we wanted after all. We decided to add a pool and included that in our purchase. Casey immediately said changing was fine and was so patient working with us throughout the entire sales experience from start to finish and beyond," said Tom. "Casey made it all easy and enjoyable. He has become a true friend”.

Both Tom and Debbie have worked in the construction industry for years. Tom, a Project Executive with a large commercial construction company, was impressed with how the Rilington Group builds homes and communities. "I watched the construction progress and throughout it, I continued to see a superb level of quality. It was as seamless as you can possibly imagine," Tom notes.

The standard features often sold as upgrades that make the difference in a home are standard at Domani, including granite kitchen counters, maple cabinets and porcelain tile flooring throughout great rooms. These impressed Tom when he and Debbie went to the Domani design center. "I figured we would have to spend a boatload to get exactly what we wanted. It was quite the contrary. This came right down to the tiles we wanted for the pool. Everything we wanted was well within our budget because there are so many standard features that you usually have to pay extra for as upgrades," says Tom, who confided the only problem they have with living at Domani is leaving it on Sunday nights to go back to Orange County.

Domani, with 202 single family detached homes priced from the $300,000's, offers the perfect size neighborhood with amenities often only found in large communities. The Domani lifestyle includes an elegant gated entrance, clubhouse, fitness center, and resort-style pool.
