Welcome to the first installment of my new blog, Wahlen’s World!

In this forum, I’ll be sharing what’s new in the realm of ranch-style condominium living and how Cornerstone Development can help you enjoy the comfortable, convenient, low-maintenance lifestyle that you’ve always dreamed about!

Here at Cornerstone Development, we’ve experienced such success in the last few years that we decided to expand to capture other Milwaukee suburban areas.  Our condominium neighborhoods can now be found in Menomonee Falls, Brookfield, Sussex, Mukwonago and Oconomowoc. We’re also very excited to be launching new neighborhoods in Greenfield, Cedarburg and another in Brookfield. We find that most people like to stay within a 5-7 mile radius of what they’re familiar with including family, friends, doctors and churches. This gives us an opportunity to reach an even broader market.

Cornerstone’s Success Secret? Neighborhoods!

We’ve enjoyed success and growth because we’re committed to creating neighborhoods one customer at a time. Cornerstone Development is open every day of the week and that makes it convenient for people to see what we’re all about. We get to know our customers and their extended families and we truly work very hard to facilitate neighborhoods.

The sales in Oconomowoc and Mukwonago have been very exciting, too.  In Oconomowoc we had a Grand Opening in late September of 2015 and we have 34 of the 48 homes already sold. Mukwonago has been much the same. While we’ve been there for a few years, we’re already 75% sold out.

Our staff really pays attention to the feedback our customers give us, too. The thing we hear most often is they like how open, airy and bright our homes are. They are ranch-style, which is what resonates with people, and each dwelling really feels like a home. You don’t have someone above or below you and once you come in it’s easy to picture yourself living there.

The Milwaukee area, in general, has a pretty high level of building quality. Actually, it’s the highest I’ve seen in this country. That sets the bar high and we’ve got to take it higher. We try to do that by communicating well with our customers, involving them in the process and letting them tour and see their home along the way so in the end they are very comfortable in the new home they’re getting.

John McGivern Coming to Mukwonago June 26th

We are excited to announce that Milwaukee Public TV’s John McGivern, host of the popular “Around the Corner with John McGivern”, will be joining us at The Glen of Mukwonago on Sunday June 26th from 1 – 3 pm in our Clubhouse. It’s going to be a great time and we hope you can join us! It’s going to be a fun and casual “meet and greet” with John. This gentleman is so pleasant and so much fun to be around that he doesn’t have to put on a show to make you feel comfortable and to make you laugh and enjoy yourself. We also like John because he believes in neighborhoods. He takes great pride in having grown up in a nice neighborhood and he touts that on his show as he travels around Wisconsin.

We will also have tours of our model homes and the clubhouse, as well as refreshments.  So please mark that date on your calendar and join us!

The Glens of Greenfield and Cedarburg

We feel blessed that we’ve found some tremendous parcels of land in these two communities that really fit our mantra. Both offer beautiful scenery, secluded, yet close, with convenient shopping, freeways and other necessities.  Our neighborhood in Greenfield is just steps away from everything you need, yet you feel like you are living in the Root River Parkway. Meanwhile, The Glen at Cedar Creek is just .9 miles from the charming downtown City of Cedarburg.  Our homeowners there will be very close to downtown yet have the opportunity to live adjacent to a beautiful maple grove forest and a beautiful body of water — Cedar Creek. The clubhouse will be the first building built in both locations, beginning with The Glen of Greenfield in July and The Glen at Cedar Creek this coming fall.

Closing Thoughts

One thing we really like to stress with folks is that we can time to your needs. For example, we can simply plan on a home right now for next year. Or, if you need something quickly, we can also meet your needs. Some people have recently sold their homes and need to get into a new home soon. We have homes that are turnkey ready, and we also have homes that will be ready next year – ready when you are!

Whatever your situation or your specific set of needs, we’re here to give you the best new home buying experience possible.

Thanks for joining me and enjoy your summer!
