Meet the team: Mary Amador and Jasmine Paredes, Home Service Department

At Bonadelle Neighborhoods, we take pride in both building houses and relationships that will last for generations to come. This relationship begins from your first encounter with a sales team member and continues long after you receive your keys through our home service/warranty department.

Mary Amador, who has worked for Bonadelle Neighborhoods for 17 years and leads the warranty department, is assisted by scheduling coordinator, Jasmine Parades. With Amador’s extensive experience working with thousands of new homeowners to ensure quality that will last for generations and Parades commitment to customer satisfaction our service team ensures that your new home is well protected. Our warranty team paired with trade partners who Bonadelle Neighborhoods has trusted for several years, or even decades for some, helps fulfill Bonadelle Neighborhoods commitment to both value and service.

 

Interview with Mary Amador:

 

Q: What about the company has made you want to stay working here for so many years?  

Amador: “The dedication Bonadelle Neighborhoods has to our homeowners to provide a quality home.”

 

Q: What do you find to be the most rewarding aspect of your role? 

Amador: “Helping homeowners ease into their homes and providing them with the tools needed. I also enjoy seeing the homeowner’s excitement when they do their orientation.”

 

Q: What do you think is the most important thing for homeowners to know regarding their home warranty? 

Amador: “That Bonadelle stands behind their warranty and has confidence in their trades partners.”

 

Q: What is the most often asked question you receive from homeowners?  

Amador: “’When do I get my keys?!’ More seriously though, they will ask about the function of the home and how to troubleshoot some problems they may be having.”

 

Interview with Jasmine Parades:

 

Q: What led you to the home warranty department? 

Paredes: “I come from a work background of customer relations and I felt that being a part of the home warranty department would be a great fit for me. I’ve always enjoyed helping and engaging with homebuyers. It’s nice to see how excited they are to enjoy their new home.”

 

Q: What advantages do you think being a local homebuilder has in regard to warranty for homeowners?

Paredes: “Purchasing a home with a local builder has its advantages regarding home warranty because you get to continue to build a relationship with the builder outside of the Welcome Centers. You are not forgotten about after receiving your keys. Bonadelle Neighborhoods really strives to be there every step of the way from beginning to end.”

 

Q: What do you think is the most important thing for homeowners to know regarding their home warranty?

Paredes: “Communication is key. As we form a relationship working together, we become a team of our own.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meet the Team: Anna Renna, Sales and Construction Coordinator

Anna Renna serves as Bonadelle Neighborhoods Sales and Construction Coordinator and after 32 years of working at the company, it’s safe to say that Renna is an expert at what she does. Renna plays a vital role in the homebuying process and acts as the company’s ‘control center’. All paperwork, design options, and contracts go to Renna’s desk. She is there for the homeowner from the beginning steps all the way to the end of the process when she makes the new homeowner baskets with the keys inside.

Over the last few decades Bonadelle Neighborhoods has played a role as both Renna’s employer and extended family. When Renna started working at Bonadelle Neighborhoods her daughter was only seven months old. When her daughter grew up and joined the work force, she worked at Bonadelle Neighborhoods. Renna’s family ties with Bonadelle Neighborhoods don’t end there. Her son and his family were recently house hunting and ultimately chose to live in a Bonadelle Neighborhoods home.

Having been hired by JB, Renna has seen the transition of roles between him and John Bonadelle. More recently, Renna has also experienced the beginnings of the next transition within the company with John Anthony and Bianca Bonadelle and Tyler Pryor joining the Bonadelle Neighborhoods team. The perspective and experiences Renna has gained over the years maker her a vital employee to Bonadelle Neighborhoods.

Q: What about the company has made you want to stay here for so many years?
Renna:
“I love that they are family oriented first. JB would close the office during the Christmas/New Year’s Holidays so we could be home with our families. I never had to miss a school event, awards, cross country meet, soccer, basketball games for my kids or grandkids.”

Q: What has it been like to see the transition between generations of families working for Bonadelle Neighborhoods?
Renna:
“I love, love, love seeing the kids, John Anthony, Bianca and Tyler Pryor grow up and take part in Bonadelle Neighborhoods. My daughter also worked here as a receptionist for a few years.

Q: What about this company do you believe sets it apart from others in the industry? Renna: Bonadelle homes have been around the Fresno area for years, they are a quality-built home at affordable prices.

Q: What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Renna:
“Knowing that these families have made a very important purchase and now have a new home that they can take pride in. My son just purchased a Bonadelle Neighborhoods home in Bella Vista in Friant. His family loves it there and that makes me happy.

 

Meet the Team: Cindi and John Dewey, Sales Counselors at Canyon Creek

Potential homeowners who walk into the Canyon Creek welcome center will be greeted with the friendly smiles of Cindi Hargrave and John Dewey Miles and will most likely be offered a fresh cookie and a plethora of candy. To both Hargrave and Miles being a sales counselor at Bonadelle Neighborhoods doesn’t mean just selling houses, to this team it’s all about building a community, and they want every person who walks through the welcome center doors to feel at home within the community. From the very beginning of the homebuying process new homeowners will experience the confidence this team has in the company they work for, the knowledge they both have in the product they are selling, and the support they offer each new buyer.

Hargrave has sold homes in nine different communities over the last 10 years that she has worked for Bonadelle Neighborhoods and has simultaneously built friendships with her buyers while the company builds their new dream home. For Miles, Canyon Creek is the first Bonadelle Neighborhoods community he has sold at after being hired three months ago, and he is looking forward to the next communities he will sell.

 

Interview with Cindi Hargrave:

Q: What is your favorite thing about this job?

Hargrave: “Seeing what was once a dirt field become a community, watching the kids riding their bikes, families taking evening walks, and new mothers pushing strollers. Knowing that in some way I have helped make this possible.

 

Q: What about this job surprises you?

Hargrave: “The many close friendships and personal relationships that I have been blessed to make with my buyers that have continued even after I have moved to another community.

 

Q: What about the homebuying experience do you think is the most important thing for potential homeowners to know?

Hargrave: “Do not lose sight of the dream of becoming a homeowner. It is possible and all they have to do is start the process and give us an opportunity to make their dream come true. Bonadelle Neighborhoods strives to make a prospective buyer into a homeowner from the very moment they walk into our welcome centers.  We figure out a way to sell them a home, even when they aren’t prequalified. That is the dream that Mr. Bonadelle had when first starting his company, for everyone to attain the American dream.”

 

Interview with John Dewey Miles:

Q: What do you believe sets Bonadelle Neighborhoods apart from other builders?

Miles: “I did not grow up in Fresno, but I have a decent social circle since I moved up here. Everyone knows Bonadelle Neighborhoods, even up in Coarsegold. Bonadelle is family owned business and there is something to be said about that. It is more personal from an employee and homebuyer position.”  

 

Q: What about the homebuying experience do you think is the most important thing for potential homeowners to know?

Miles: “The most important thing is the confidence they will get when they buy a Bonadelle Neighborhoods Home.”

 

Q: What is your favorite thing about this job?

Miles: “My favorite thing about this job is handing the homeowners their baskets, you can never quite anticipate their reaction.”

 

 

 

 

 

Meet the Team: Daniela and Amanda, Sales Counselors at The Grove

It’s been a year since Bonadelle Neighborhoods hired Daniela Ataide and Amanda Lopez and within that year both have sold at several of our communities. Currently, you can find Ataide and Lopez at The Grove welcome center working on paperwork and finalizing purchases for The Grove Cottages development.

When it comes to buying a house, both women emphasize the importance of purchasing a home from a local homebuilder – it’s also the reason why Ataide and Lopez applied to work for Bonadelle Neighborhoods when the job opportunities arose. To them, choosing to buy from a local homebuilder means exceptional customer service that is only a short drive away, employees who are ready to help, and a reputable history in the local community. Ataide and Lopez strive to make the homebuying experience as exciting and easy as possible and hope to show all prospective homebuyers what sets Bonadelle Neighborhoods apart as the Valley’s local premiere homebuilder.

Interview with Dani Ataide:

Q: Why should someone buy from Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Ataide: “I think it’s important to buy from a local builder, Bonadelle Neighborhoods, who has been building quality homes in the Central Valley for generations, takes pride in providing exceptional customer service from a team of supportive and knowledgeable professionals, offering peace of mind to buyers by streamlining the entire process of purchasing and building a brand new home.”

 

Q: What about the homebuying experience do you think is the most important thing for potential homeowners to know?

Ataide: “I think it’s important for potential homeowners to ask questions when unclear on anything pertaining to the purchase of their new home, be patient and understanding of the many variables with a new build and understand and trust the process during the build and loan processing time.”

 

 

Interview with Amanda Lopez:

Q: What is your favorite thing about this job?

Lopez: “I enjoy people and paperwork (I know that’s weird). I enjoy checking items off my lists, makes me feel accomplished. I enjoy the people I work with and that everyone has an open door even the main bosses.”

 

Q; Why should someone buy from Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Lopez: Bonadelle is a local builder. Their corporate office, lending, title company, and most important warranty department are all within driving distance. You’re not going to get the run around with answering machines or email you can speak with us face to face.

 

Meet the Team: Jeff & Kate, Sales Counselors at Harvest

This Team Member Tuesday we are introducing Jeff Nermon and Kate Leonard, our sales team at Harvest at Riverstone. Jeff has been with Bonadelle Neighborhoods for almost ten years and has worked at nine of our communities! Kate joined the company almost two years ago and worked at the Canyon Creek welcome center before coming to Harvest.

 

Both Jeff and Kate have unique perspectives on Bonadelle Neighborhoods homes because both have lived in them! They go beyond the position of sales counselors and can understand the needs of every Bonadelle Neighborhoods homeowner, being one themselves. It is evident that both Jeff and Kate stand behind the quality we strive for and are eager to help homeowners find their own home sweet home. Make sure to stop by Harvest and meet this experienced team!

 

Interview with Kate Leonard:

Q: What led you to work for Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Leonard:After moving back to California, I knew I wanted to work for a local builder with roots in the Valley and understood the needs of the community. From my very first interview, I could sense that everyone on the team really enjoyed their job and was treated like family. I also grew up in a Bonadelle home in Clovis and could personally attest to the quality of homes we build.”

 

Q: Why should someone buy a home at Harvest?

Leonard: “Harvest is a great option for anyone who wants to be a part of Riverstone at an affordable price. The Central Valley has never seen a community of this size with resort style amenities before and I think it’s really exciting to be a part of this brand-new concept.”

 

Q: What is your favorite thing about this job?

Leonard: “So many of our homeowners first come to us initially wanting to buy but not really thinking it’s within their reach. My favorite part of my job is helping people understand it is a possibility for their family and the steps they need to take to achieve this dream. I really love seeing the joy on my client’s faces when they receive their keys!”

 

 

Interview with Jeff Nermon:

Q: What led you to work for Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Nermon: “The opportunity to work for a family business where you don’t have all the layers.  Prior to Bonadelle Neighborhoods, I worked for a couple of national builders, where you are just a number to them.”

 

Q: What makes Bonadelle Neighborhoods communities unique?

Nermon: “Knowing firsthand with not only having bought a brand new Bonadelle home myself, but also compared to other builders, quality and value stand out.”

 

Q: Why should someone buy a home at Harvest?

Nermon: “First, Harvest is the most affordable in Riverstone.  Second, being able to be a homeowner in a community that is all about being a part of something bigger.  The sense of community and the comradery you just don’t get anywhere else.”

 

 

Meet the Team: Tyler Pryor

The Bonadelle family isn’t the only family working at Bonadelle Neighborhoods. Dean and Tyler Pryor have been a hardworking father and son team within the office for eight years. Bonadelle Neighborhoods was Pryor’s first employer after graduating from Fresno Pacific University and the company has had a unique opportunity of watching him grow from a recent college graduate into a young professional. When Pryor first started with the company, he joined the sales team and was mentored by his father, Dean, and John Bonadelle, who passed down their knowledge from JB to him.

 

After eight years of working as a Sales Counselor, Pryor recently transitioned to Loan Officer at Premier Mortgage Inc. where he helps Bonadelle Neighborhoods customers find the right loan in order to purchase their dream home. Pryor’s years in sales paired with the mentorship he has received from both his father and John Bonadelle makes him the perfect fit as a Loan Officer. Bonadelle Neighborhoods is excited to watch Pryor continue to grow in this new position and looks forward to many more years of working alongside the Pryor family.

 

Q: Please provide a little background on your journey to working at Bonadelle Neighborhoods.

Pryor: “I was born and raised in Fresno,Ca.  I went to high school at Clovis West and ended up graduating from Fresno Pacific University.  All I did growing up was play baseball and go to school.  I was very fortunate that my parents never missed one of my games, from T-ball all the way through college ball.  With my dad being an important part of Bonadelle Neighborhoods, I can’t thank the Bonadelle family enough for giving him the flexibility to share in all of those experiences with me.  I have grown so much as a person in the last 8 years with Bonadelle Neighborhoods and can’t wait for this new chapter with Premier Mortgage,  Inc.”

 

Q: What made you want to follow in your father’s footsteps and work at Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Pryor: “I was in my last semester of college and wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go.  Without my knowledge, my Dad had spoken to John Bonadelle about making me a part of the sales team.  Caught off guard, they offered me a job with Bonadelle Neighborhoods and I thought it would be a great opportunity.  Bonadelle Neighborhood’s has done so much for my family, I knew I was in good hands and that it would be the best decision for me moving forward.”

 

Q: What is it like working for a family company alongside your own family members?

Pryor: “Being able to work alongside my Dad and the Bonadelle family for the last 8 years has really been an eye-opening experience.  The Bonadelle family has some of the hardest workers I’ve ever seen.  You don’t really know what to expect starting a new venture but seeing everyone work together to make sure the company runs as smooth as possible is something really cool to see.

 

Q: What are some of the most important things you have learned from your father and John Bonadelle about the homebuilding industry?

Pryor: “John takes a lot pride in his sales skills he learned from his father.  He always has good sales tips and he knows every aspect of the homebuilding process, which he is never shy about passing along.  My Dad and John form a great team.  They understand each other and always seem to be on the same page.  The homebuilding industry is always changing, but the foundation of Bonadelle Neighborhoods is as consistent as ever.”

 

Q: What has the transition from Sales Counselor to Loan Officer been like?

Pryor: “I have always been a numbers guy like my dad.  It’s been a very smooth transition from new home sales to lending.  I love helping people find a loan that works for them.  Not every loan is the same, so helping borrowers understand the differences and make decisions based on that is something I really enjoy.  I pride myself in being someone people can trust.  Getting a loan is a huge deal, so having someone you can trust guide you through the process is a very important thing.”

Meet the Team: Dean Pryor, Chief Financial Advisor

Dean PryorOver 40 years ago, a young professional with a background in finance and a degree from California State University, Fresno applied for a job at John Bonadelle Sr.’s (JB) company, Trend Homes. Dean Pryor got the job and immediately earned the position as the number two man to JB, who mentored him daily. This would be the start of a strong business relationship between Dean Pryor, and the entire Bonadelle family. When John Bonadelle joined the company a few years later it was the perfect team – JB led as President, Pryor worked as Chief Financial Officer, and Bonadelle was Vice President. Together the team built hundreds of houses and played a paramount role in building out the Central Valley.

 

Today Pryor still holds the CFO position at Bonadelle Neighborhoods, manages the accounting department, and acts as the Sales Administrator where he reviews and approves every sales contract for the homeowners. He is also the managing partner and broker of Premier Mortgage. Over the years Pryor has had the unique experience of watching the generations of Bonadelle family members grow up and establish themselves as young professionals in the homebuilding industry. He has even had the opportunity to watch his own son, Tyler join the Bonadelle Neighborhoods team. Pryor is an invaluable asset to the company and a wonderful mentor to the younger generations.

 

Q:  At this point you have now worked with 3 generations of the Bonadelle family. What has it been like for you seeing that transition?

 

Pryor: “When I started with John Sr. in 1979 I was 26 years old. I had a financial background but zero construction knowledge.  He put me in as the number two man in the company and was very patient as he taught me the business.  He had an amazing work ethic and a brilliant business mind. John Jr. came aboard, and it was my job to pass on what I had learned to him.  He has been great to work with. He has taken the very best parts of John Sr. and made the company even better. We’ve worked together for many years and we think alike.  John number three came a few years ago and he’s the smartest of all of us.  The company is in great hands with John, Bianca and I’m sure Mia to follow.”

 

Q: What are some of the most important things you have learned about this industry over the years?

 

Pryor: “Stay consistent. Treat others with respect.  There will be good times and bad times and you just keep working hard with the goal in mind.  Build a quality home at the best price you can.”

 

Q: What about this company has made you want to stay with it for so long?

 

Pryor: “I work with GREAT people!  A few I hired and they’ve been with the company 25 + years. The Bonadelle family has always treated me as part of the family.  We all share the same goals.”

 

Q: Why do you recommend buying a Bonadelle Neighborhoods home over another builder?

 

Pryor: “We work hard to build a home that our homebuyers would be proud to show off and we are local. Our homes have never been better than they are right now.  We stand behind our homes and we will be here when you need us.”

 

Meet the Team: Bianca Bonadelle, Communications and Public Relations Director

Bianca Bonadelle recently joined Bonadelle Neighborhoods as the Communications and Public Relations Director after having moved from Dallas, Texas. Growing up, Bonadelle was always interested in the family company and loved stopping by the corporate office after school to visit her father and mother to see what new project they were working on. As she grew older Bonadelle also became interested in other industries, specifically communications and fashion, but she always tried to find ways to relate them back to homebuilding and real estate.

Bonadelle pursued degrees in both Journalism and Fashion Media at Southern Methodist University and after graduation chose to start her working life in Dallas. Bonadelle worked as a publicist for an advertising agency that is the largest independently owned company in America. Working for such a large company, she had the opportunity to connect major companies and brands to the public through their messaging. While none of Bonadelle’s accounts were real estate focused, the exposure she received and the work tactics she learned are extremely applicable to our company. Bonadelle is excited to be back in the Valley working with her family and is looking forward to contributing to Bonadelle Neighborhoods’ success.

 

Q: How do you apply what you learned from your previous employer and college education to your position at Bonadelle Neighborhoods?

Bonadelle: I studied Journalism at SMU and I believe that my involvement in the extracurricular programs offered for journalism majors really strengthened every aspect of my communications skills. I was a reporter for SMU’s newspaper, The Daily Campus, as well as an anchor for the student run broadcast show, SMU Look. These opportunities forced me to become a better communicator both through written and spoken word. Communicating effectively is beneficial for any job, but I plan on exhausting these skills in my new position as it is a necessary element in my job description. After my first internship in PR I saw the importance of having strong communication skills and the overlap between Journalism and Public Relations. It made me want to be a publicist, and after college that’s exactly what I did. I worked on the public relations team for a major advertising agency in Dallas and really started utilizing the skills I had learned as a Journalism major for my job. I understand how to pitch a story to reporters and the best way to contact them because I once was a reporter for SMU. I understand how to effectively communicate a brand’s message to the public because of the skills I learned through anchoring for the show and conducting interviews. While the world of public relations is so much more than pitching reporters and brand messaging, I plan to use those strong skills of mine and apply them to this job like I did my last and I am excited to see the results it will bring to the company.

 

Q: How have you adjusted from working with a company of 800+ people to a family owned business?

Bonadelle: Having the opportunity to work for such a large advertising agency allowed me to work on some amazing accounts with businesses and non-profits that are well known around the country, and in some cases the world. Working on accounts like these required a lot of dedication, creativity, and diligence. Working for Bonadelle Neighborhoods really is no different. While we may not be known worldwide or have 800+ employees, we are dedicated to our work, we are creative with our floor plans, models, and advertisements, and we are made up of diligent employees who care about this company, the homes we build, and bettering our community. Adjusting to my new job with Bonadelle Neighborhoods was a fairly easy transition, although I am still not used to calling my bosses ‘mom’ and ‘dad’.

 

Q: How do you plan to use your position to advance the company? What specific goals do you have set for your position?

Bonadelle: My most immediate goal is to expand Bonadelle Neighborhoods’ presence on social media. Now more than ever people are relying on their phones to access news and learn about companies and I think it’s a great way to share our brand’s message of building homes for families to enjoy for generations to come. I think it’s an amazing thing to support our community by supporting other businesses and local non-profits and so I hope to get more exposure for our charitable contributions and partnerships. I believe it will in turn give those non-profits and organizations more opportunities to reach larger groups of people in the Central Valley. A long-term goal of mine that I hope to one day achieve is to land a feature in a major publication likes Forbes.

 

Q: What do you like best about your job?

Bonadelle: I love that I have the opportunity to be back in the Valley working with my family, pitching stories to the local news outlets, and sharing our company’s story with the community. Being able to carry on the legacy that my grandfather has left behind while working alongside my parents and brother truly is something special that I love being able to do.

Meet the Team: John A. Bonadelle

John A. BonadelleFrom a very young age, John Anthony Bonadelle knew he wanted to be involved in the homebuilding industry, just like his father and grandfather. To him, physically seeing the results that you are continuously working towards, like a new community that a few months prior was only a vacant field but is now filled with moving trucks in the driveway and excited families moving in, is unlike any satisfaction he could receive from another industry.

Growing up John A. would spend early summer mornings out at the construction site learning the foundations for how to build a quality home. After getting his realtors license in college, he eventually moved on from the construction site to the sales offices and began selling the homes that he once used to build.

John A. now acts as Bonadelle Neighborhoods Director of Operations, his responsibilities include locating, entitling, and acquiring undeveloped properties that have the potential to be valuable for the company. We sat down with John A. to talk more about his vital role in the company, how he plans on continuing the strong legacy his father and grandfather have built over the last 75 years, and his future goals as a young professional.

 

Q: Explain the process of finding an undeveloped lot and transforming it into a community that families can enjoy for generations to come?

Bonadelle: “I am more or less involved with every step from taking a vacant undeveloped property to preparing it for homes to be constructed on. This includes working with local land sellers to identify properties we feel can be created into a neighborhood that is appealing to both future residents and the surrounding neighbors; working with the cities to create an entitled subdivision and then ultimately budgeting for and developing a property into a future community. I also have a handful of other various responsibilities such as serving on our existing homeowner associations (H.O.A.’s) executive boards prior to us completing a neighborhood and the homeowners ultimately managing their own H.O.A.’s.”

 

Q: What made you want to return to the Valley after having lived in Dallas?

Bonadelle: “The Central Valley has always been home to me, and it is a great place to work and live. Central Valley residents are extremely friendly, honest and hardworking, which I very much value. From a career perspective, I have always wanted to work with the company and felt I could make a positive impact to Bonadelle Neighborhoods and the home buyers we serve.”

 

Q: How do you uphold the legacy of your grandfather and father in your everyday work?

Bonadelle: “My grandfather built a successful career and company off the idea of creating value by building quality, affordable housing for thousands of Californians looking to achieve the American Dream of homeownership. Over the years California has become an extremely expensive place to live, but despite this Bonadelle Neighborhoods still continues to create the opportunity for homeownership at an affordable price for hundreds of new homeowners each year. For instance, our Legacy Series communities are some of the most affordable first-time home buying opportunities in the entire state of California. These communities are being built in Clovis Unified, one of the premier school districts in California; Riverstone, a top master planned community in the country; and in northwest Fresno, an extremely desirable neighborhood. That is a tremendous level of value for our home buyers and they will see their value continue to grow as they live in their homes long term. Our Signature Series offers pool sized lots that are becoming increasingly rare to find in California and provide the ability for families to grow into their home and enjoy their own piece of California.

 

Long term, John A. plans on continuing to build homes with the same quality and affordability that Bonadelle Neighborhoods has offered for 75 years while also evolving and developing new floor plans.

Lisa Bonadelle

Meet the Team: Lisa Bonadelle, Vice President

Lisa Bonadelle didn’t start her career in the homebuilding industry. After having received her MBA from Cal State University Fresno she worked as the Director of Marketing and Fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Over the last several years of working as the Director of Marketing for Bonadelle Neighborhoods, Bonadelle has been able to apply lessons learned from fundraising and working for a nonprofit to the homebuilding industry. This has allowed Bonadelle Neighborhoods to have a marketing perspective that is both authentic and valuable.

 

When Bonadelle isn’t deciding on the next campaign slogan or advertisement to run, she is acting as the company’s Interior Designer. With a love for both fashion and art, Bonadelle combines the two to create a beautiful living space for families to enjoy for generations to come. The accented walls, perfectly fluffed pillows, and vibrant art pieces are just a few things customers will find when walking through any Bonadelle Neighborhoods model home.

 

In addition to decorating and designing model homes that families can picture as their own ‘home sweet home’, Bonadelle also works closely with the home service department. She is truly there from the start to finish of a homeowner’s experience with the company. Continue reading on to learn more about how Bonadelle juggles her long ‘to-do lists’ at work and special tips on how to make a Bonadelle home a representation of you and your own family.

 

Q: You have a lot of roles within this company, do you have a favorite position and if so, why?

Bonadelle: I appreciate all of the departments in our company as each is essential to making Bonadelle Neighborhoods unique and special. I spend a lot of my time working on marketing and promoting the Bonadelle Neighborhoods brand as well as protecting it through our home service department.

 

Q: How do you begin decorating a model home?

Bonadelle: I immediately determine a design style for each model based upon the demographics of the community that we are building as well as current design trends. I then meet with our wonderful design consultant, Amanda Cooley, at Builder’s Flooring and make paint color, countertop and flooring selections. This allows us to choose a color scheme and theme to keep throughout the home.

 

Q: Do you have any decorating tips for people furnishing their homes?

Bonadelle: Find an item, whether art for your wall or a fantastic bedspread, that you absolutely love and use that as your inspiration for color, style, etc. Once you find something you truly love it is easy to find furniture and accessories that will work with it. Before you know it your home is a true reflection of you and your family.

 

Q: What sets Bonadelle Neighborhoods apart from other builders?
Bonadelle: At Bonadelle Neighborhoods, we truly do our best to build quality neighborhoods that families will enjoy, feel safe in, and be proud of for generations. Since we are a local,  family-owned company, we can closely monitor the development of a community and the homes built in them. We have a pulse on what our homeowners view as important in a home and we do our very best to provide it. We are also surrounded by employees and trade partners who have been with our company for years and who share our commitment to building value for generations.
