Jackson at Walden: Meet Charlie and Paul

Meet Charlie and Paul! This lovely couple, originally from the UK, are thrilled to be the newest owners to a 2 bedroom + den home in Jackson at Walden! Their 1,263 sq. ft. Jasmine floorplan overlooks the courtyard and is the perfect fit for these two outdoor adventurers, who answered some questions for us so we could get to know them better.

What about Walden attracted you? New community and modern housing

Why did you choose to buy at Jackson? Price range was perfect and we are really looking forward to the courtyard/fire pit area

How did you hear about us? Internet

What floor plan did you choose and why? Jasmine 1 – our kids have left home so we didn’t need a big house and loved the idea of a little den upstairs to use as another TV room

What’s your favourite thing about your new home? The open concept on the first floor and the huge window in the main bedroom looking over the courtyard

What was the home buying experience like in the UK? In one simple word — nightmare! Long and way more stressful than here.  Nothing is certain until one month before you move in. Even when you finally sign the contracts and get your moving date, the deal can still fall through. You are in a chain of people and if one part of the chain pulls out (for any reason) i.e. you loose your buyer or possibly the house you are choosing to buy

If you had a superpower what would it be?  Charlie – to fly / Paul – time travel

What’s your nick name? Pauly G (G = ginger hair) 

What inspires you? Anyone who has overcome odds to achieve what we all think is the impossible (Charlie)

What do you do for a living? Logistics

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why? Terry Fox because he was a runner, overcame huge personal odds at such a young age and continued to inspire people to raise money for others. (Charlie)

Elon Musk because I would like to hear his plans for space colonization and the future of humanity. (Paul)

If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why? 35, because I wasn’t as stupid as I was in my 20’s and I hadn’t started to get fat! (Paul)

I think we speak for everyone when we say we’re happy to get to know our new neighbours a little more. We’re thrilled to have you join the Jackson at Walden community.  

Until next time!
