Jack, I live in Portofino in Brentwood which is the same builder. We love it here. The purchase process was something to get used to. The Lexington Park homes are selling fast as is Portofino so I would recommend that you make up your mind quickly as prices are going up. If you don't have a Realtor already, I would be happy to assist you in a purchase of new construction as I have been through the process and can guide you along the way. Call me at 925-336-4938 and I'll be glad to answer any questions. Remember, that before you sign up at a new subdivision, make sure that you have your Realtor with you or you will lose the right to be represented.
