Boca Bridges Hits $100 Million: 5 Questions With GL Homes On How It Achieved This


We sat down with Jill DiDonna, Senior VP Sales and Marketing for GL Homes for this exclusive insight. 

  1. What sets apart Boca Bridges from other communities?

Boca Bridges offers everything South Florida’s ultra-luxury homebuyers are looking for. High-quality stylish home designs offer up to 8,000-air-conditioned square feet of pure luxury and feature three different exterior styles to choose from. This resort-style lifestyle program features a tennis center and pro shop, a steak house and lounge, two stunning pools and a plethora of amenities and programs for the community’s children. This sought-after Boca Raton location means homebuyers don’t have to settle for less than what they truly want. From the moment visitors drive past the spectacular entry feature to when they tour our models, they feel the Boca Bridges difference. It’s this attention to detail and uncompromising high standards that sets Boca Bridges apart.

  1. $100 million in sales so quickly is impressive, how did GL Homes achieve this?

GL Homes understands and respects the needs of our clients. We have built a reputation for delivering quality, both in the construction of our homes and communities, and in the level of service that we offer every step of the way. Many of our homeowners are second, third, or even fourth-time GL homeowners, and a large percentage of our first-time homebuyers were referred to us by friends of family. When we opened Boca Bridges, we had pent-up demand that quickly translated to sales. To us, these factors are indicators of our success in understanding what our homebuyers want.

  1. Why has GL Homes succeeded in the luxury home building market?

Our buyers have discerning taste and we make it a priority to recognize that in everything we do. We strive for the WOW factor from our entry features, sales offices and staff, designer-decorated models, variety of floorplans and elevations, options, clubhouses, amenities, and landscaping.  Every aspect of Boca Bridges needs to represent quality, prestige, and excellence.

  1. Boca Bridges has 11 models, why so many? And why is this great for the homebuyer?

Building a home is highly personal, so we aspire to offer something for everyone. This includes a choice of one and two-story homes, 31 distinct floorplans including three different exterior styles and a robust choice of design options. The variety of floorplans and elevation styles offers homebuyers a diverse sampling of the homes they can build and make their own. Our model row “Street of Dreams” aspires to evoke the sense of luxury that will be felt throughout Boca Bridges once it is fully developed.

  1. Why are the Boca Raton and Delray Beach markets so important for GL Homes?

Our buyers want to live in sunny coastal Florida locations and few places in South Florida are more desirable than Boca and Delray. With a vibrant culture, great schools, and a high quality of life, this is where a large percentage of homebuyers from both in and out-of-state aspire to live.
