  AZUSA, CA, Feb 16 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
For some homebuyers, finding the perfect community is a family affair --
and that is particularly true for new Rosedale homeowner Mai Thai. She
and three of her siblings, as well as extended family and relatives have
their own homes within this award-winning master plan and Mai is
delighted that her family is so close to each other. "My brother Andy
purchased at Rosedale first and my two sisters and I followed him here.
Offering a tranquil setting that gives us easy accessibility to our jobs
in Orange County, downtown LA and Riverside, all of us can't think of a
better place to be together as a family," Mai explained.

    "I always wanted to stay in LA County, but wanted to live within a quiet
area. As soon as my brother and sisters discovered Rosedale, I
immediately knew this community was exactly what I was looking for. It's
naturally beautiful and serene, but close to everything, such as Target,
Costco, Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart. I also love that my family and I
can easily drive to our favorite Asian restaurants or markets in the San
Gabriel Valley from Monterey Park to Roland Heights and even Little
Saigon -- convenience is key for all of us. I purchased the first home I
ever looked at and feel very fortunate about my decision. Everything from
the location to the home and the overall appeal of the Rosedale
master-planned community was perfect," she added.

    Rosedale, San Gabriel Valley's fastest selling master-planned community,
has impressed smart consumers with its new neighborhoods and spectacular
recreation. "I never believed in homeowner's dues or Mello Roos taxes,
but now I appreciate everything they pay for -- the perks of living here
are incredible. When I saw how well-built Rosedale was, with the
beautiful views and amenities, where the streets and trees and facilities
are taken care of, I have a much deeper understanding of their
importance. I love the recreation center and my entire family thinks it's
the best thing around. During the summer, my nieces and nephews spend a
lot of time in the pool and we have reserved the clubhouse several times
for special occasions. My family is very close-knit and love spending
time together and it's so easy for us to gather for barbecues and other
activities at The Resort. I particularly like the fitness center and use
it quite frequently; it's just a great situation."

    "Everyone in my extended family is extremely happy living at Rosedale --
it's the ideal community in a great Southland location and we are
together, which is the best part of all," Mai added.

    With more than 100 new homes sold in a year, homebuyers are encouraged to
