Pulte Opens Model Homes for New Broward Community 

One of the nation’s largest homebuilders, Pulte Homes, is constructing 86 single-family homes in a community called Cassia Estates, located in Lauderdale Lakes. The homes feature three-to-five bedrooms, two-four bathrooms, and two-car garages. The residences will range from 1,450 to 2,850 square feet, with prices starting in the mid $400s. To help interested buyers gain a better perspective, tours of two models homes are available, as well as information on the other five layouts. 

“Single-family home construction in Broward County is still pretty rare,” says Brent Baker, division president for Pulte in Southeast Florida. “With modern designs, smart home technology and attractive prices, we think Cassia Estates has much to offer.” 

The homes available for touring are the Chapman and Hanover models. The Chapman features an open design built around the kitchen and gathering room and the owner’s suite has a private bath with a large walk-in closet. The larger Hanover model has four bedrooms and two baths with a flexible living space with a café and a gathering area.

Pulte Homes is building Cassia Estates with a fiber network that delivers high-speed internet service to homes. Owners can expect seamless Wi-Fi reliability and increased bandwidth provided by built-in access points and direct wiring throughout the house. 

“This is just one example of how our Life Tested Home Designs make homes better,” says Bridjette Shelfo, Vice president of sales for Pulte’s Southeastern Florida region. “The pandemic has taught us that buyers are very focused on having a strong, reliable internet signal for work and entertainment.”   

Situated between Florida’s Turnpike and I-95, Cassia Estates is bordered by West Oakland Boulevard to the north and MLK Jr. Avenue to the east. The surrounding area features A-rated charter and magnet schools. The community also has no development district costs with low homeowners’ association fees.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
