The new office will open the first part of January, said Jean Boehm, founder of the real estate firm. She said the active real estate market in Mountain House has prompted the establishment of what she called “a sister office.”
“We will have the first full-service real estate office in the Mountain House,” she said. “Mountain House is attracting growing attention from home buyers, and we want to be there to serve them.”
Boehm said that Lisa Rocha, a member of the Vintage Group staff for the past 10 years, will manage the Mountain House office. She will supervise 12 full-time agents, Boehm said.
The Mountain House office will be located in 1,500 square feet of the building at 585 Wicklund Way Crossing, near the main entrance off Mountain House Parkway.
“Mountain house is a family-oriented community,” Boehm said. “It has schools, parks and variety of community activities. We think it has a great future.”
Rocha reported home prices in Mountain House are slightly higher than those in Tracy, reflecting the fact that most are newer and larger.
Although foreclosures and short sales currently play a role in the Mountain House real estate sales, as they do in most area markets, regular sales are taking place and six major home builders are constructing homes in Mountain House, mostly by order, she noted. The builders are Meritage, Standard Pacific, Lennar, Pulte, Shea and DRHorton. Shea Homes is also moving forward plans for two new subdivisions under the development’s master plan.
