The Weissman Story

Retirees Find Convenience, Perfect Home and Lifestyle at Summerfields West

testimonial from the recent retirees, the Weissmans

Although they had resided for 17 years in a townhouse located a mere 15 minutes from the Summerfields West 55+ community in Williamstown, Mary and Tom Weissman would embark on an exhaustive new home search extending through Southern Jersey and even into Delaware. Yet, the retired couple would ultimately make the practical decision to remain near family members and local healthcare providers, while simultaneously making the life-changing move to Summerfields West.

Summerfields West entrance“When the multiple levels of stairs in our townhouse became too much for us at this point, we decided it was time to go,” stated Mary. “After a friend recommended Summerfields West, we decided to go check it out and, are we ever glad we did. From the moment we arrived and saw the impressive entry to the community and soon met Anne Marie Burgo, the Sales Manager, who gave us a tour of the model homes, we realized there was something very special about this place, something more than the wonderful home styles and the perfect location.”

What the proud new homeowner was alluding to echoes the sentiment of so many other active adults who now reside at Summerfields West; namely, a prevailing spirit of friendship and togetherness that is often found lacking in other 55+ communities in the area that are not nearly as affordably priced as Summerfields West. “Even though we’ve only been living here about a month, we’ve made lots of new friends and have found everyone to be very friendly and engaging,” she remarked. “We take a walk around the block every night and talk to the neighbors who are out and about. It’s very quiet and peaceful here. We feel very safe, too. We absolutely love it here at Summerfields West.”


Of the five available home designs, the Weissmans selected the popular Wildflower model, which offers three bedrooms, two full baths, a walk-in closet, covered front porch, an enchanting morning room and—most importantly to Mary and Tom—a generously proportioned master bedroom to accommodate their king sized bed. “In our search, it was difficult to find rooms and floor plans that would fit all of our specific needs; that is, until we visited Summerfields West,” Mary said. The couple also opted for the standard countertops, cabinetry and flooring, but decided to purchase stainless steel appliances. Additional space to the home was added by removing the large garden tub in the master bedroom. “We love how spacious the master bathroom is, too,” she added. All of the home designs at Summerfields West offer customization options to better suit each homeowner’s taste, style and preferences.

The couple also takes full advantage of the onsite Recreation Center at Summerfields West. “We go to the gym several days a week. We probably would not go to a gym outside of the community, so this is perfect for us. Very convenient and we can work out any time we choose.

Like most Summerfields West residents, the Weissmans welcome visits from friends and family, made possible in large part by the community’s easily accessible location in desirable Monroe Township. “We have already had our first family Sunday spaghetti dinner, which everyone enjoyed,” said Mary. “Everything has turned out so well for us here at Summerfields West. We couldn’t be happier!”

Summerfields West is convenient to Philadelphia, Atlantic City and a long list of lifestyle necessities, from health care and education, to shopping and recreation. For more information about Summerfields West, call 856-629-2011.
