Paul and MaryAnn Fox have spent most of their lives on the East Coast where they first met, excelled in their careers, raised their children and bought their first home together. But when their son, Jack, moved to Las Vegas in 2014 for a job, they became more interested in visiting The Entertainment Capital of The World and exploring all that the city has to offer. While the Foxes were helping their son find a home to purchase, they stumbled upon One Las Vegas and discovered the high-rise condominium lifestyle was exactly what they wanted for their own.
“We weren’t looking for a new home, but after spending only a few hours at One Las Vegas, we began reassessing our future because we suddenly saw ourselves being a part of this community,” MaryAnn said. “During our One Las Vegas presentation, we were amazed by the diversity of resident amenities, including the business center, two-story fitness center, exclusive resident mixers, spacious floor plans and the spectacular Strip and valley views. Upon realizing the incredible value of a One Las Vegas condo, we immediately signed papers for a one-bedroom home, just the perfect amount of space for the two of us.”
The Foxes always dreamed of someday retiring on the West Coast, and in 2004, they took a leap of faith and moved to Los Angeles. MaryAnn is an ASP-certified home stager and recognized that L.A. had a lot of room for her to grow her skill set, especially when the housing market was at its peak in 2004. Paul, at the time, owned a medical equipment company, which he has expanded into other markets over the years.
“It’s no secret that L.A. homes come with a sticker shock that’s often hard to digest, so we simply rented a condo during our time there,” Paul said. “We married two years after moving to L.A., which was the biggest highlight of our move there, because in 2008, we packed up our belongings and returned to New Jersey where we bought our first home together.”
In December 2015, their son had shown interest in buying a home in Las Vegas. Paul and MaryAnn didn’t look at too many options before they found One Las Vegas, just south of where Jack rents a condominium.
The Foxes began their Las Vegas home search for their son in December 2015 and could hardly contain their excitement when they found One Las Vegas.
“Jack was skeptical of the high-rise lifestyle, which ultimately worked out for us because we came back to One Las Vegas that same day to make an offer,” MaryAnn said. “We only moved in a few weeks ago, but we are enamored by our new home. The home prices are very economical given the value and abundance of the community’s amenities and the whole team goes above and beyond to ensure our happiness. Neighbors are friendly and the proximity to everything we need is nearly too good to be true.”
The Foxes kept their home in New Jersey where they spend most of their time, but they plan to gradually shift their primary residence to Las Vegas, particularly because they look forward to enjoying their golden years in their new home.
“We aren’t the best at playing pool but we have every intention of participating in some friendly competition with our neighbors soon,” Paul said. “We laugh because after our son saw our new home, his perspective on high-rise living started to shift. Of course, he doesn’t want to live in the same community as his parents, but finders, keepers.”
