Recently, we sat down with New Home Advisor Katrina Harless to learn more about life at Lakeview Trails at Morrison Ranch and what she’s excited to see at our new community.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m an Arizona native who found it easy to fall in love with real estate in our beautiful state. I have been doing new home sales for 12 years, primarily in the East Valley. I love my job because it allows me to make people’s dreams come true with owning a new home and improving their family’s lives.

What are you most excited about for the opening of Lakeview Trails at Morrison Ranch?
As a homeowner myself, I know how important it is to find the perfect place to call home. Morrison Ranch is one of the most desirable communities in Arizona, so it is easy to get excited about offering this unique lifestyle. With modern, Flex Design® options and new, smart home features, our floor plans will offer something exceptional to fit everyone’s lifestyle. Not only will you be proud to own a new home, you will also be happy to call Morrison Ranch your community with character!

Morrison Ranch is known as a community with character. Can you describe what makes this master planned community different?
With its green grass, tree-lined streets dotted by old-fashioned street lamps and white picket fences, it is like a different world from its surrounding desert landscape. The beautiful backdrop of the Superstition Mountain range accented by the vast blue lakes and old grain silos is stunning! Living in Morrison Ranch is like living in a small Midwestern town, where everyone knows each other and waves as you drive by. There really isn’t anything else like it in Arizona!

What are some of the features people will love about living at Lakeview Trails?
Lakeview Trails is literally that! A beautiful, double-lake system that offers walking and biking trails — not only around the lake, but down all the tree-lined streets framed by bright green grass.  Designed with its residents in mind, Lakeview Trails encourages people to bike or walk to work, the grocery store, or even down the street to your child’s soccer game. Between all of the community activities, including the Fall festivals and youth fishing tournaments, you are bound to meet your neighbors and make new friends! Morrison Ranch, as a whole, truly gives you the meaning of community.

What’s your favorite part of the Morrison Ranch lifestyle?
Morrison Ranch is hard to beat!  You are smack dab in the heart of Gilbert, as well as close to the freeway and local, A-plus schools. The downtown Heritage District is only minutes away, with its Western ambiance and wonderful restaurants and shopping. And if you like to shop, San Tan Village is also only a hop, skip and jump away. Offering an outdoor mall experience with everything from Coach to the Apple store and more, you are sure to find what you are looking for. If you need to get off your feet and grab a bite to eat, you can pick from among the many acclaimed restaurants. You can also indulge in any of the spas nearby or join in on numerous local activities and events, like running a 5k. Morrison Ranch offers so much more to its residents than just a home. You will become part of a community that cares!

How do you help prospective buyers find a home that’s tailored to their lifestyle?
Everyone is unique in what they desire and need to improve their life and way of living. Listening to what their daily routines are and what they like to do on the weekends is a huge part of how I help people find their perfect new home.

What would typical weekend activities look like for someone who lives at Morrison Ranch?  
Grab your bike and ride down to the lake for a fun family picnic. Or teach the kids how to fish in one of the lakes. Walk to the ice cream shop and grab a cone with your friends. Or gather at a festival for fun and festivities with your neighbors and loved ones. Play catch at the park with your son or jog the tree-lined streets to find your zen. Anything is possible when you live at Morrison Ranch!
