Homeowner Spotlight | Meet Gerry and Paige

Gerry knows all about checking boxes. As a project manager for a global supply company, he and his wife, Paige, were looking for the perfect mix of location and lifestyle. They had a tall order for a short list: great local restaurants and a neighborhood that would work for his anything-but-typical commute by airplane. That’s when he found Tracy Hills, with its proximity to area airports and the character of downtown Tracy’s food scene.

Life on the road is more glamorous than it sounds, so Gerry needed a home near an airport that he could leave for in the morning and come back to on the same day. That’s because most of the month, he’s traveling for work.

Gerry and Paige looked at moving to cities from Scottsdale to San Diego. Tracy wasn’t even on their radar until a friend told them about all the exciting new developments in the area. That’s when they found Tracy Hills. After visiting, they knew Vente’s Plan 3 was the perfect home for them because of the multigenerational suite option that could grow and change with their needs.

“It also has a great room that’s more efficient and space friendly and a loft upstairs for my office on the days I work from home,” Gerry explains. “We were also able to customize our backyard with pavers, a large outdoor kitchen, California room and a wood-burning oven for pizza or tacos to entertain our friends.”

And when they’re not hanging out in the backyard, Gerry and Paige love to frequent the local food scene in downtown Tracy. Gerry says, “It was a huge selling point to have restaurants, shopping and culture close by.” He continues, “Everything just has so much character. I think downtown Tracy has infrastructure and growth potential to be as good as downtown Livermore.”

Best of all, Gerry can leave for work in the morning and make it home by dinnertime to hang out with their 30-something-year-old box turtle in the backyard, who also enjoys his corridor of serenity.

Now the couple has everything they need to make flights to work and dinner reservations all in the same day with a life well lived at Tracy Hills.
