Trumark Homes Release For Sale 5 Model Homes at Glass Bay Community in Newark on Heels of Reaching Over 90 Percent Sold

Trumark Homes’ second residential community in Newark is met with robust buyer demand

 San Ramon, Calif. (August 16, 2018) Trumark Homes, the national award-winning California homebuilder, announced today the release for sale of the Saltcreek and Seagrass model homes at its Glass Baycommunity in Newark, CA. In just one year, Trumark has already achieved an impressive sales milestone of more than 90 percent or almost 200 of the homes sold, including a full sellout at one of its neighborhoods, Boardwalk. Featuring three distinct neighborhoods, Glass Bay introduces 217 new single-family detached homes to the Tri-City area. This marks Trumark Homes’ second residential community in Newark having reached a sellout of the 164 homes at its Timber community in late 2016.

“The sales velocity we’ve experienced to date at Glass Bay underscores the continued demand for housing in the Bay Area,” said Tony Bosowski, Division President, Northern California. “It’s remarkable because we began selling homes from a dirt lot prior to our sales office opening and long before buyers could even tour the model homes. From that point forward, we knew that these homes would not last on the market for long.”

Glass Bay consists of three distinct neighborhoods surrounding a central park, including: Saltcreek comprised of two- and three-story homes with three to five bedrooms; Boardwalk with three-story, four-bedroom homes; and Seagrass, featuring two-story homes with four to five bedrooms. Homes range from 1,829 to 2,420 square feet and all boast 10-foot ceilings on all main living floors. Prices started in the low $900,000s.

“Our buyers have run the gamut from Silicon Valley professionals to first-time homebuyers and everyone in between,” said Tony Bosowski. “We have welcomed 80 families to Glass Bay and are proud to introduce the new homeowners to the caliber of home crafted in every Trumark community.”

Located at the intersection of Willow Street and Enterprise Drive in Newark, Glass Bay provides convenient access to public transportation, schools, such as the University of Phoenix, Decry, ITT Tech, and Ohlone College, parks, sports facilities and shopping.

The Pacific in San Francisco Reaches Complete Sell Out; Trumark Urban Closes More Than $300 Million in Sales in 24 Months

Stunning architecture, advanced virtual reality technology and unmatched location drive record-breaking prices and swift sell-out 

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. (July 26, 2018)–Trumark Urbanhas announced the complete sellout of the collection of 76 residences located at The Pacific, located in San Francisco’s prestigious Pacific Heights neighborhood.

“It is incredibly fulfilling to reach this milestone and to see this breathtaking building come to life with new homeowners, families and activity after years of hard work by the Trumark Urban team and our many partners,” said Gregg Nelson, Principal and Co-Founder of Trumark Urban. “We set out to raise the bar with The Pacific, and I truly believe we achieved that through a focus on design, meticulous interiors, groundbreaking technology and an ongoing commitment to be a great neighbor within the Pacific Heights community.”

Sales for the building’s 76 residences, led by West Coast sales and marketing firm Polaris Pacific, launched in summer 2016 and immediately drew a flood of interest for the one-, two- and three-bedroom homes. Each residence features distinctive entertaining spaces, chef’s kitchens, up to 11-foot ceiling heights and floor-to-ceiling windows with picturesque views of San Francisco that span from the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, the Marin Headlands, Tiburon and Sausalito, to the Island of Belvedere.

Unique to The Pacific is the Row Home Collection – 10 three- and four-story townhome-style residences as well as the Penthouse Collection, which includes seven Penthouses ranging up to approximately 3,073 square feet and four Grand Penthouses with private, expansive wrap-around terraces ranging up to approximately 4,048 square feet.

In early 2017, Trumark Urban rolled out one of the largest, most advanced applications of virtual reality in residential real estate to date to simulate the Penthouse Collection via Samsung Gear VR headsets, which enabled potential owners to explore the customizable shell penthouses as fully designed homes. Significant sales interest was also bolstered by The Pacific’s Broker Advisory Board, a partnership with some of the city’s top luxury brokers to help shape the project from conception.

An adaptive reuse development designed by Handel Architects, The Pacific is the first large-scale newly constructed, residential development in Pacific Heights in decades. Nestled next door to Fillmore Street, the location is second to none channeling a cosmopolitan oasis near parks and quiet streets with the urban conveniences of high-end retail, Michelin-star restaurants and activities. The Pacific has drawn inspiration from the lasting residences found mainly in neighborhoods of London and Paris, marrying this with a modern interior aesthetic. The exterior architecture plays off of the neighborhood, a modern interpretation of classic Victorians’ bay windows.

Beyond the mold-shattering architecture and bespoke interior design by Glenn Rescalvo at Handel Architects, the collaboration with Jay Jeffersand Jeff Schlarbon model residences, the intimate art installation from Helen Amy Murrayand the collection of five-star service and amenities, the most significant asset this building has is the address itself.

The Pacific offers a full range of amenities including private vehicle valet, full service concierge, lobby attendant, a private Observatory Lounge overlooking the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, a private guest residence called “The Fillmore” and a world class fitness center.

The Pacific is located at 2121 Webster Street, San Francisco CA 94115. For more information, visit thepacificheights.com.

Trumark Companies Celebrates 30 Years in Business

With More Than 1,400 Homes Built and Sold in California Over the Past Three Decades, Trumark Proves to be a Powerful Force in the Homebuilding Industry

San Ramon, Calif. (July 26, 2018) Trumark Companies, a diversified real estate development and building firm, celebrates its 30thanniversary this year marking a major milestone in the company’s longstanding history of homebuilding in California. Founded in 1988 by Gregg Nelson and Michael Maples, Trumark has grown substantially over the years in response to the market and now comprises four distinct divisions, including Trumark Communities, a master planned community developer; Trumark Homes, a next generation homebuilder; Trumark Commercial, which builds, leases and sells commercial buildings; and Trumark Urban, a vertically integrated residential developer focused on core urban neighborhoods. Despite its growth, the company’s mission has remained constant over the years: to build inspiring homes and communities in highly desirable geographic areas while ensuring each development is economically viable and socially responsible and enhances the environment and surrounding areas.

“We are truly elated to celebrate this milestone as a company. It seems like 30 years passed by in the blink of an eye, but we couldn’t be prouder of what Trumark stands for today,” said Mr. Maples. “Over the past three decades, we have learned invaluable lessons that will undoubtedly aid in our future growth and success. Trumark is committed to remaining at the forefront of designing and developing the next generation of homes both in suburban and urban locations, with every home made to inspire and delight potential homebuyers.”

Nelson and Maples met during their college years at San Jose State University and later moved their families to the East Bay to start a church. With previous real estate experience under their belt, they founded Trumark in 1988 as a secondary pursuit, not knowing the legacy into which it would evolve. After the market crashed in the early 1990s, the duo stepped away from actually building homes for about 15 years and narrowed their focus to the land entitlement side, while adding a significant commercial development operation. While they were eager to get back into homebuilding, Nelson and Maples didn’t see the right opportunity to do so until after the 2008 recession, which led to the birth of the Trumark Homes division. Vast opportunities in the market over the years have allowed Trumark to diversify its product offering and form several distinct divisions under the Trumark umbrella. Most recently, Trumark Communities launched a new TruLiving brand, an innovative new community model designed to revolutionize the age-qualified sector of the real estate market and featuring the first age-qualified amenity to be registered under the WELL Building StandardÒ.

“We would not be where we are today without the team behind us. We truly believe that we have the most talented, creative, motivated, forward-thinking and hard-working group of people in the industry. They are committed to problem solving, creative deal-making and place-making and they are such an integral part of what we do day in and day out,” added Mr. Nelson. “We would like to thank everyone who has had a hand in making Trumark what it is today and we look forward to our future as an organization.”

Over the course of the past 30 years, Trumark has successfully entitled 30 development sites and over 5,000 residential lots. Trumark Homes has been instrumental in the development of more than 2,200 homesites throughout California and built and sold more than 1,400 homes. The company currently has more than 10 active new home communities spanning the state of California including: Fielding and Perch in Dublin, Glass Bay in Newark, SP78 in San Jose, Centerhouse in Ontario, Founders and Bristol in Chino Hills, Lewis+Mason in Anaheim, The Pacific in San Francisco and TEN50 in Los Angeles. Trumark has received numerous local and national awards, including best attached, detached, multi-product and master planned community in the country and was recently named the 3rdfastest growing private builder nationwide.

Trumark also celebrates its longstandingpartnership with charity:water, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. For approximately every 50 homes that Trumark builds, they provide and serve approximately 200 people with fresh, clean water.

The eight-acre Tribella site is part of Santa Ana’s Harbor City Place plan and offered Trumark Homes an opportunity to develop a unique mixed-use development that includes a blend of street-facing commercial spaces with mixed-use townhomes and single-family detached homes nestled within a gated community. With the majority of the existing homes in the area dating back to the 1950s, Tribella introduced 110 newly constructed homes to a market where young families are attracted to the top-rated Garden Grove public school system.

Trumark Homes Begins Sales for SP78 at San Pedro Square in San Jose

New Townhome Community to Positively Impact Revitalization of Downtown San Jose

San Jose, Calif. (JULY 13, 2018) Trumark Homes, the national award-winning California homebuilder, announced its sales launch for SP78 at San Pedro Square, a new residential community that recently broke ground in San Jose, CA. Trumark Homes acquired the development site in late 2017, where 78 new townhomes will be built adjacent to the popular San Pedro Square Marketplace, adding to the urban revitalization of downtown San Jose in Silicon Valley. Bringing the award-winning homebuilder’s portfolio to more than 10 communities under development in California, SP78 represents the homebuilder’s continued expansion in Northern California.

“Silicon Valley continues to be a hotbed for the technology industry, which has in turn driven pricing up drastically over the past several years,” said Tony Bosowski, Division President at Trumark Homes. “Introducing new housing to the area represents a tremendous opportunity for Trumark to positively impact the growing demand for housing in the Bay Area and capitalize on this primary market poised for continued growth.”

SP78 will feature three-story, single-family townhomes boasting innovative floor plans, thoughtful design and contemporary style blended with functionality. The two- and three-bedroom floor plans range in size from approximately 1,300 square feet to 2,000 square feet and offer attached direct-access garages.

“SP78 is symbolic of the urban, walkable lifestyle that homebuyers are increasingly seeking and we believe we’ve created a tremendous opportunity for those seeking to be connected and inspired at home,” said Gregg Nelson, Co-Founder of Trumark. “The location and proximity to endless shopping, dining and entertainment options will be a key selling point and we are confident this community will be met with significant demand in the market.”

Homeowners will enjoy close proximityto downtown office, retail, restaurants and entertainment, convenient access to public transportation and freeways, and a short commute to the Mineta San Jose International Airport.  Sales launched this summer and model homes are slated to be delivered in fall 2018.

Trumark Homes’ portfolio includes several actively selling communities in the Bay Area including Glass Bay in Newark, Perch in Downtown Dublin and Fielding at Wallis Ranch in Dublin.
