Newlyweds Robert and Erica Villalpando

Newlyweds Robert and Erica Villalpando recently bought into Fulton Homes’ Estrella Commons.

The Fulton Homes Estrella Commons community is seeing an increase in buyers looking to make the Goodyear area their home. Many are first-time owners, while others are facing “growing pains” and are in need of expanded space.

Robert and Erica Villalpando are among homebuyers choosing to bring their perfect family home to life. Recently wed, they found they needed more room when the time came to combine their families. Fulton Homes had the ideal floor plans and options.  

“Everybody needed to have their own space,” Erica said. “We’re from this area and really like it, so we didn’t want to move out of it.”

From concept to development, the Villalpandos share that they have been pleased with choosing Fulton Homes. Erica admitted she was concerned the process would become overwhelming, especially visiting the Fulton Homes Design Center to customize their spaces. This is Erica’s first new construction home. Robert, who has experience with buying a new build, appreciated how Fulton Homes managed the process.

“From the first visit to now, they’re on top of everything in the building process,” Robert said. “Even at the design center it was pretty simple and there wasn’t any pressure for upgrades. Whatever you want, you can put in your house.”

The Villalpandos choose a spacious floorplan with ample loft space for the children and the master bedroom conveniently located at the opposite side, maximizing privacy. The outdoor spaces featured in the community provided another big draw for the Villalpando family, with plenty of space where their children could safely play without being too far away. 

“We really thought the neighborhood paths were great,” Erica said. “If the kids want to go out bike riding, they don’t even have to leave the community. It’s like living in a park.”

Located at I-10 and Estrella Parkway, Estrella Commons features 23 floor plans starting in the $290,000s that can be customized to fit families at any stage. Close to schools, shopping and dining in the Goodyear area, the community also features playgrounds, outdoor amenities, and plenty of space to play and grow.

“Sales and traffic have been strong across all of our communities this summer as homebuyers look to lock in on the great mortgage rates,” said Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes.
