Keith and Susan Dill Join the Woodleigh Chase Priority List to Prepare for Their Move

June 12, 2024

In real estate, location is everything. So, when Susan and Keith Dill learned that Woodleigh Chase, a new Erickson Senior Living community, was coming to Fairfax, Va.--just 15 minutes from their house in Fair Oaks, Va.--they were intrigued. 

"We wanted to move to a retirement community at some point, but we didn't know where," says Keith. "When we heard about Woodleigh Chase, we thought it might be the place."

With a prime location just three miles from George Mason University, Woodleigh Chase is located on 46 acres in Fairfax, Va. 

"Plus, we already knew about the Erickson Senior Living lifestyle," he adds. "We knew people who lived at Greenspring, the community in Springfield, Va. We've attended various activities, parties, and events there over the years." 

For Keith and Susan, everything about Woodleigh Chase added up to be the perfect fit. Now, as Priority List members, they'll enjoy the same Erickson Senior Living lifestyle and preparing for their move! 

Plenty of space

After conducting more research, the Dills fell in love with the community's spacious, maintenance-free apartment homes

The one-level apartment homes at Woodleigh Chase feature a variety of open floor plans, from one-bedrooms to deluxe two-bedrooms. Each unit includes stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops in the kitchen and patios or screened-in balconies, as well as underground parking. 

First choice in floor plans

To ensure they would have the opportunity to secure their desired apartment home when they're ready to move in, Keith and Susan joined the Priority List.

One of their top contenders is a two-bedroom floor plan with a den. "We really like the size of the bedrooms. Having a den also is an appealing factor," says Keith. 

Worry-free living

"All the apartment homes at Woodleigh Chase are designed to offer the same modern features that people love about their houses--without the headaches of homeownership," notes Sales Director David Taylor. 

Through the monthly service package, residents don't have to worry about upkeep and appliance repairs. Even the simplest tasks, like replacing a burnt-out light bulb, are handled by General Services. 

"Without the stress of handling maintenance, you have more freedom to do whatever you enjoy, whether that is traveling, gardening, volunteering, or spending time with friends and family," says Taylor.

"We are looking forward to not having to mow the grass and take care of all the maintenance that goes along with owning a house," says Keith. 

Time to socialize

Susan and Keith are also excited about the on-campus restaurants that serve up a variety of made-to-
order meals. 

"It'll be great to enjoy lunches and dinners with new friends in the on-site restaurants," says Keith. "And if we don't feel like eating out, we can just get carry-out and take it back to our apartment home!"

Other resort-style amenities at Woodleigh Chase include an all-season aquatics center, a professionally staffed fitness center, hair salon, theater, pickleball courts, dog run, and game room--all just steps from residents' apartment homes. 

As members of the Priority List, the Dills have exclusive access to these amenities and fun social events with fellow members. 

"We have attended various activities, parties, and events! We already feel like Woodleigh Chase is our home," says Keith. "We've connected with future neighbors who share common interests and hobbies."   

A helping hand

Another perk of the Dills' Priority List status is being able to enlist the help of preferred realty and moving experts when they're ready to make the move. 

"Our preferred real estate agents, movers, and home improvement vendors undergo a rigorous screening process, ensuring they provide the best service and value," explains Taylor. "By utilizing these services, Priority List members receive a $2,000 reimbursement towards their moving expenses."

"We like that we won't have to go through the moving process on our own," says Keith. "They have so many resources for everything you need, from real estate agents to moving companies. It makes it so much easier." 

Support for planning

And with educational seminars about downsizing and preparing for a home sale, Keith, Susan, and their fellow Priority List members feel more prepared than ever before to make the move. 

"Join the Priority List! It's a no-brainer. You have a much better chance of getting the apartment home you want," he says. "And after you join the list, you'll get invited to events where you can meet other people and prepare for your move. It's the best way to plan for the future."
