Ponderosa...At Home

The Coachella Valley real estate market is having one of its best summer seasons ever as homebuyers move away from bustling cities for more space and communities that take life at a slower pace. With low interest rates and beautiful new homes to choose from, you can see why people are flocking to the desert.

Sage in Palm Desert is the oasis you’ve been searching for in these unprecedented times. These homes feature five inspired floor plans and come with buyer-owned photovoltaic solar. Plus, residents enjoy the great resort-style amenities, where they can break a sweat in the fitness center, escape the heat in the refreshing pool and much more.

The community is open, and you can get pre-qualified today. Make an appointment by contacting Casey Erickson at 760.984.9026 or [email protected].

Summer will be here before you know it, which means now is the best time to brighten up your home décor with some of the season’s top design trends. Whether it’s a fresh new look for your interior or an outdoor setup ready for hosting summer gatherings, these tips will give your home the update it deserves going into the warmer months.

Start inside your home by adding touches of color. Splashes of yellow are great for bringing summer vibes into your space, while blues and pastels can reenergize more neutral palettes with cool hues. This can be done with pillows, table accessories, accent furniture and even wall art. Small changes can have a big effect.

Gravitate toward greenery with some new plants. From centerpieces to freestanding floor plants, having plants in your home will not only help create a summery feel, but they also improve household air quality, so bring on the botanicals!

When decorating for summer, it’s important to create a comfortable outdoor space since you’ll be spending a lot more time outside enjoying the weather. Choosing the right items to fill the space will make it even more tranquil and inviting.  Mini seating areas with sofas and armchairs will make it seem like a cozy extension of your home. Accessorize with mixed fabrics to add texture and choose colors that are on trend, such as this year’s light earth tones including lilac, clay and green.

Finally, embrace the timeless trend of the herb garden. An edible garden is perfect for people who love to cook—it also provides a natural fragrance to your space.

No matter which trends you choose this year, personal touches will give your outdoor space the welcoming atmosphere it needs for all of summer’s best gatherings.

There’s no better place to host a party than a Red Hawk home by Ponderosa Homes, and there’s no better way to spend a night than catching up with great friends and industry colleagues in a setting reminiscent of an evening in paradise.

It was all of that and more at this Ponderosa Homes celebration honoring our employees, partners, city officials and others who contributed to bringing the community of Red Hawk to life.

Esteemed guests were treated to exquisite catered fare and specialty cocktails while a steel drum band provided the evening’s soundtrack. The conversation was lively, and the atmosphere was inviting as visitors toured the new one- and two-story single-family model homes to see first-hand the exciting homeownership opportunities Red Hawk will bring to the San Ramon Valley.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the event and to all who helped make Red Hawk possible.

If you haven’t been to this inspiring new community in Danville, be sure to come by for a visit!

On May 25, 2017, the Ponderosa family lost our esteemed president, Richard “Dick” Baker. In a career that spanned more than 40 years, Dick made his mark on the homebuilding industry throughout Northern California and, over the last 20 years, as president and CEO of Ponderosa Homes. An integral part of the leadership team, along with Linda Morasch and Kile Morgan, Dick guided Ponderosa to achieve success even in the most challenging of times, most recently spearheading numerous land acquisitions and entitlement strategies such as Ironwood in Pleasanton and the entitlement of Tracy Lakes.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dick was a force to be reckoned with in our industry, serving on multiple committees and devoting much time and financial backing to philanthropic endeavors. Dick understood the importance of providing housing and shelter to those who need it most, leading him to found the HomeAid Northern California chapter, which has gone on to build more than 30 multi-unit shelters for homeless families. In 2005, he was inducted into the CBIA California Homebuilding Foundation Hall of Fame for his commitment to charitable giving and mentorship.

A beloved husband, father, brother and colleague, Dick will always be remembered for his caring moral support, strong leadership abilities and, of course, his wonderful wit and sense of humor. He will be deeply missed by all.

This month the Ponderosa family is shining a spotlight on the The SUHI Foundation, spearheaded by our very own chairman, Kile Morgan Jr. In partnership with The Morgan Family Foundation, The SUHI Foundation will be awarding a record-breaking $250,000 in scholarships to thirty nine exceptional students at Sweetwater High School in National City, CA.

The Foundation is currently in it’s eleventh year of providing scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 to university bound students, and most are eligible for renewal for four years in order to help students pursue their degree. This year, a total of six scholarships worth $500 each were also awarded to students attending community college. In addition, the Morgan Family Foundation has awarded a full scholarship estimated at $200,000 for one student to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Founded in 2006, the SUHI Foundation has awarded over $700,000 in scholarships and supported a total of 102 students in their dream to work toward higher education. We at Ponderosa Homes are proud to work with this wonderful organization.
