Groveland, FL (Oct. 14, 2013) - Mike and Martha Diaz loved their home in South Florida, and had no intentions to move, until a chance encounter with a friend led them to the home of their dreams at Trilogy Orlando. One visit to the community’s beautiful location nestled in the gently rolling hills of Groveland and small-town charm with sophisticated amenities quickly won them over. Within the course of a few months, Mike and Martha Diaz were loving their new home at Trilogy Orlando, a top 55+ active lifestyle community in Orlando.

It was a life-changing Saturday! We are originally from south Florida and moved to central Florida for a change of pace in 2007. We own a home in Grand Island (just about 40 minutes from Trilogy) and had no intentions of moving or looking to move. Our home is in a quiet, new neighborhood with good amenities and we were close to family.

We have some very dear friends whom we’ve known from our church since we moved to central Florida. They have a lovely home here in Trilogy and one day in April 2012, we decided to visit and join them for lunch. Our friend Irma had surgery performed on her shoulder and we thought it would cheer her to be together for a little bit.

Well, that was the Saturday we fell in love with the community….

They invited us to see the models, which were impressive. Then as we walked around and started visualizing how the community and the crazy amenities would be like, we started looking at each other and thinking – “can we do this?”

We are not impulsive people but somehow we found ourselves considering at least an “inquiry.” Our friends could not believe we were interested, so after our visit we went home, talked some more and prayed about us possibly buying a home. The next day, we came to see Dave in Sales and expressed our interest, but informed him that we had to worry about renting our other home in order to buy one at Trilogy and we really didn’t want the headache most landlords go through.

Thank goodness for Marketplace Homes, which at the time, had affiliation with Shea Homes. Following Dave’s explanation of their program, we felt it was a no-brainer! We started working with all the numbers and off we went to look at available lots.

We had always wanted a house with a huge tree in the back and that’s exactly what we found in Trilogy, as if this lot had been reserved for us! We moved here late November 2012 – this has been one of the best decisions we’ve made in our lives. We feel happy, safe, and blessed with a beautiful home and community. Our options for activities and events have multiplied since we moved here.When family and friends visit, they totally understand why we moved again (since they knew we had no plans to move).

For prospect buyers, I would say that Trilogy Orlando is true to their residents and the lifestyle you will encounter is one that you would only see in 5-star hotels or resorts. We enjoy everything about our community and are thankful to have the health and the energy to experience our new life.
