Nearly 900 homes have sold at Eastmark since opening in June 2013, and the community was recently ranked as one of the top 10 fastest selling masterplanned communities in the nation by RCLCO.   Eastmark’s signature Community Life programming has led to strong neighbor referrals as well.  Suzanne Walden Wells, Director of Community Life for Eastmark explained, “When choosing a home, the first things most of us consider are price and floor plan. At Eastmark, there’s another equally important element – community. Nothing can compare to the joy of an impromptu porch party or dancing with 1,000 of your new best friends at a First Friday concert. Eastmark attracts people who want to be a part of a community where neighbors connect and are truly engaged.”   Today, Eastmark’s 10 national and local homebuilders are offering more than 50 different home floorplans in 23 neighborhoods.  This includes  the Encore community, which offers buyers 55+ a unique neighborhood with exclusive amenities within the masterplanned community.   Eastmark’s Growing Amenities   In response to the rapid sales pace, Eastmark launched its next phase of the amenity package and will open the community’s first resort-style pool for residents this spring.  The ‘Mark, the community’s welcome center, will be transformed into an indoor/outdoor recreation center connected to the exclusive pool area for kids and adults to enjoy.   High Quality Schools, an Apple and a Stronger Economy   Apple’s Arizona Global Operations Center resides at Eastmark and DMB’s Operations team is working to bring more high-quality jobs to the area.  A 3,200 acre development, five square miles, Eastmark will be home to thousands and is planned for millions of square feet in commercial uses, hotel and recreation.  Over time, this community will be a hub for the Phoenix East Valley.   Anchored in the civic center of Eastmark, two world-class elementary schools educate more than 1,000 students today.  BASIS, one of the leading charter schools in the nation, operates their only Mesa campus at Eastmark and Sequoia Pathfinder Elementary focuses on STEM education for their students.  A new A-rated public school opened this year to serve the community and it is just a short walk from Eastmark neighborhoods.
