What can I do to prepare for my design appointment?

In preparation for your first design appointment, please review the list of options and the accompanied pricing provided in the gold colored, Design Studio folder that was presented to you at time of Reservation. Please review this list ahead of time to have a better sense for what you would like to add to your new home. You may want to check with your Lender prior to your appointment to see if additional costs can be incorporated into your total financing package If you have furniture fabrics, bedspreads, or pillows that you wish to match, please bring them with you so that we may help you coordinate the perfect color scheme.

How much time can I expect to spend at the design studio?

Please allow 2 – 2.5 hours for each appointment. Depending on the extent of options ordered and the time at which you purchased your home, you can expect from two to five appointments with your Designer

On average, how long does it take to finish a house, based on the day framing begins?

It normally takes 8 months to complete a house. The exact time depends on the house size and the options chosen.

Why are there different cut-offs for design selections?

Brookfield Design has specially selected a variety of upgrade option opportunities for your new home. The options have been separated into four groups depending on the stage of construction. All options are ordered as a package for each construction phase. In order to better estimate your delivery and move-in date, it is important that there are no changes to the options past the Cut-off date. If you have purchased your home when construction is already underway, consult with your Brookfield Sales Representative or Designer to understand what group of options are available, as well as what the specific cut-off dates may be.

Do you have references of other home buyers that have purchased from you?

Yes, we have very happy home buyers.

Anthony and Nicole in Anaheim
"Linda Tom was great, and her customer service skills were exceptional. With her knowledge of options, she took into account our values and concerns. She fully explained all options and helped us feel confident about our choices without feeling like the sale was the main and only goal. We really felt helped; she was ale to pinpoint our needs and wants and helped us make the best, right decisions.

Aaron and Shelby in Carlsbad
"I can't say enough about how great Cheryl was to us. She was patient with us and listened to our ideas, helping us create a beautiful yet functional home. She was flexible with our schedule and always made time to meet with us. She never made us feel pressured by deadlines and, instead, worked with us until we were satisfied with our design. Even after moving into our home, she has been a great resource to us."

Mike in Irvine

"Pegi was extremely detail oriented and thorough in making sure our option selection experience went well. This included special requests like having our pony wall cap stained to match our stairway railing stain upgrade. They all look great! We were encouraged by Pegi and the sales staff to tour other units during appropriate hours in order to see many available options actually installed. This was a huge help!"

Ii Xu in Irvine
"We feel so lucky to have Terri as our designer She is very professional and has great taste She made the most tedious process become a wonderful experience. Every time we made a change, she always made sure that the change coordinated with other options. There was no pressure, no worry and no regrets."

Cindy in Lake Forest
"Alice is my designer and, frankly, she is simply the best. I imposed a lot on Alice during the process to help me make design decisions far beyond than just my design purchases, and she always provided her professional expertise- I valued her opinions so much! One thing I should add is that Alice was the designer on my last Brookfield home and, because I liked working with her so much, I specifically asked if I could work with her again. She wasn't a designer in my new neighborhood, but she took me on as a client once I requested her even though this was additional work for her. Alice is a great designer and Brookfield is very lucky!"

Cody in Lake Forest
"Christina was incredibly helpful with our design selections. She was able to work within our budget, help us choose upgrades that would work together and provide alternate suggestions when we were dreaming too big. She was able to show us how our home would look and feel when completed, and guide us confidently throughout the process."

Alex and Jenn in Playa Vista
"Wendy Hurst could not have done a better job. We loved working with her, and she always took the time to ensure we were comfortable with our choices."
