When we at LifeStyle Homes finish building a new home for our customers, we hope it will be a haven for its owners—a place where their family will make lasting memories. That said, we were overjoyed when we heard that Brent and Michelle Van Bever—former high-school sweethearts who reunited after 33 years—were married in their new LifeStyle home this past March!

We recently caught up with Brent Van Bever for a Q&A regarding his and his wife’s experience building with LifeStyle Homes:

Please tell a little about yourself.
I am a senior medical technologist for Health First and my wife, Michelle, is a police officer for Satellite Beach. Between us, we have four adult children and two grandkids. We love the Caribbean and my hobbies are pretty much anything on the water … diving, fishing, snorkeling, boating.

What ultimately made you and your wife decide to build with LifeStyle Homes?
Michelle is the owner of 24-7 Cleaning, Inc. and used to clean new construction homes for LifeStyle and multiple other builders. She spoke highly of LifeStyle Homes and the quality of their homes during construction.

What attracted to you to the LifeStyle Tahitian? Why did you decide this plan was right for you?
The open feel and look given by the vaulted ceilings was noticed immediately when we walked into the model. The split bedroom plan and multiple plant shelves were also something we were looking for. The decoration and paint schemes of the model definitely stood out and the square footage was perfect for us. Linda (LifeStyle Homes’ Pineda Ridge sales specialist) was an excellent guide in helping us choose a model that worked for us.

Why did you choose to build in Pineda Ridge?
We were trying to stay beachside but the cost was just more than we wanted to spend. We wanted an area where we could easily still get beachside, to I-95, shopping in the Avenues, and local Melbourne restaurants. Pineda Ridge was pretty much it. We like the fact that it’s a new neighborhood and it is a gated community.

What have you enjoyed most so far about living in Pineda Ridge?
The location has proven to be perfect for us and the neighbors are very friendly and social. It’s quiet and well kept. Our home is absolutely perfect and we almost don’t want to leave for vacations anymore because we feel like we ARE on vacation.

What would you tell others about your building experience with LifeStyle Homes?
Linda in sales was very knowledgeable and was key to our purchasing a home in Pineda Ridge.  The pricing is fair for the quality of home LifeStyle builds and our superintendent, Russ, did an outstanding job. He seemed to take interest in building our home as if it were HIS. The options available were endless and the entire building process went perfectly.

From the entire LifeStyle family, we are thrilled that you are enjoying your new Pineda Ridge home, Brent and Michelle! Thank you for building with us. We wish you many years of happiness together.

And for any others who may be interested in calling Pineda Ridge your home, act quick! We only have a few lots left in this Melbourne neighborhood. Call (321) 722-1124 for more information.
