Moving to Citrus County from their home near Annapolis, Maryland, was a major challenge for Jim and Maria Schmidt. Not only was it a big change in lifestyle, but it was also their first new construction after 34 years in the same house. A primary concern of theirs was finding a house that was big enough to accommodate friends and relatives during visits, and one that had all of the features that they didn't have in their old house. They were looking for their dream home.
After seeing the Sanderson Bay "St. Martin" model home, they knew they had found what they were looking for in a new house. But, as with every new house, changes had to be made - add a workshop for Jim, a 3-car garage, change the lighting and make sure that the kitchen was everything that Maria wanted, just to name a few.
"Chuck Sanders and his staff readily incorporated all of our wants and desires and made several suggestions along the way that improved some of our original ideas," said Maria.
"Even as construction progressed, plans were still tweaked and changes were made, and Chuck and his folks handled every one of them with a smile and a can-do attitude. They made us feel like family, taking a personal interest in delivering just what we wanted and in the way we wanted it."
