Roxburgh selected for Master Plan in Bakersfield

We are excited to share that Roxburgh has been selected to market a new master plan in Bakersfield by the highly respected developer and homebuilder, Woodbridge Pacific Group (WPG).

The first mixed-use village will consist of some 800 homes designed for move-up, and luxury segments along with two age-restricted neighborhoods, a gated upscale apartment neighborhood and an assisted living/memory care facility.  A specialty shopping center is planned within walking distance of the new community.


The Bakersfield submarket is not new for us, as Roxburgh served as agency of record for Castle & Cooke’s Villages of Stockdale a few years back.

That said, the area’s economy and employment base has grown substantially. Today it is the fifth fastest growing (by percentage) economy in the country and leading indicators point to a strong and sustained real estate market.


Consumer research and design/planning meetings area underway.  Using the Roxburgh F.A.C.E. process, the community brand strategy is nearly complete.

WPG expects to tap local homebuilders for most of the new neighborhoods with formal discussions beginning later this year. The master planned village is expected to debut in late 2015.

Happy New Year from the ROX Family

As we look back at 2012 and ahead toward 2013, we hear and see a lot of talk about uncertainty in the economy, politics and foreign affairs, to name a few. Yes, many things do remain uncertain as 2012 comes to a close, however we are also seeing many positive things. Most notably, in our industry, more builders are building and buyers are buying. It is still too early to determine a consistent trend, but it is a good thing for our industry and economy.

With that in mind, we offer a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to our clients. They provide us with the distinct privilege of crafting and sharing the stories of their new home communities. Our collective teamwork and passion made 2012 a year we will never forget.

We couldn’t be more excited for what 2013 brings, and we wish you all a healthy and prosperous new year.

Brightwater Huntington Beach

We are excited to be working with Woodbridge Pacific Group on Brightwater, a planned community in Huntington Beach. Located a few short blocks from Pacific Coast Highway, Brightwater is a gem, offering new beach-close homes, many with unobstructed views of the coast and Bolsa Chica Wetlands. Pricing has not been announced but is expected to start in the $800,000s, ranging to over $2 million.
When Woodbridge Pacific Group enlisted the ROX Team in early 2012, Brightwater was a recognizable brand with existing homes for sale. Our F.A.C.E. approach respected that brand while moving forward in reenergizing this very special community in a gradually-recovering economy. Through F.A.C.E., Woodbridge Pacific Group and ROX worked closely together to develop messaging and a visual landscape that most accurately reflects the luxe yet laid-back beach lifestyle homeowners can expect to experience living there.

Brightwater neighborhoods encompass eleven new floor plan designs. Living spaces will range from approximately 1,992 to 2,685 square feet at Capri; 3,192 to 3,732 square feet at Seaglass; and 3,751 to 4,764 square feet at Azurene. Emphasizing indoor/outdoor living enjoyment and an array of luxury amenities, the homes will provide 3 to 6 bedrooms and 2.5 to 6.5 film Steve Jobs now

Capri, Seaglass and Azurene sales galleries opened on December 1st, and several hundred people came out to preview home designs, a future community center and clubhouse and to review anticipated pricing and financing options. A model home grand opening is planned for early summer, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to help Woodbridge Pacific Group share the Brightwater story. For more information, visit


Favorite Things, Fall Edition

Happy fall, everyone. I don’t know about you, but the dog days of summer have definitely worn out their welcome around here. Now that the temperatures are blissfully on their way down, I can cozy up to some of my fall loves and must haves.

Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte
It’s that time of year again, and I am rarely without a pumpkin latte, pumpkin muffin or pumpkin scone from Starbucks. Sure, the pumpkin spice latte is 380 calories – so you’re basically drinking your breakfast. No time like to present to start putting on that winter coat.

Time to bring out the ever-versatile accessory in a variety of colors. This Stella McCartney beauty is on my wish list.

Color Drives
There’s nothing quite like taking a drive and seeing the fall colors. Travel + Leisure has a nice roundup of some of the country’s best scenic fall motorways.

Red Lipstick
Truly one of the season’s best accessories, a fabulous red lipstick that complements your skin tone is a must. The trick is finding the one that looks best on you. Lancome’s Blazing Red looks great on almost everyone.

The Classics
There’s something about cooler weather that makes me want pick up one of the classics and settle in for a good afternoon read on a rainy day. This year I am rereading one my favorites, Great Expectations.

Baby Photos Be Gone

Do you think people post way too many baby photos on Facebook? Apparently, enough people feel this way, as someone has developed a filter you can install via Google Chrome so that friends’ baby photos are replaced by photos of dogs, cats or anything else you think is cool. The filter is called
A chrome extension that deletes babies from your newsfeed permanently––by replacing them with awesome stuff.

As a new mom myself, I find this extension brilliant and hilarious. When it comes to posting baby photos on Facebook, I am a repeat offender, guilty as charged. I understand, however, that not everyone wants to see my little nine month old trying to put the dog’s bone in his mouth for the tenth time. So go ahead, filter away, but just don’t tell me that my baby photo you liked on Facebook was actually a photo of a dog in a Halloween costume. Ignorance is bliss.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

Shameless baby photo post. But isn’t he adorable?

Mountain House YouTube Video Campaign

We are happy to be working with the team behind Mountain House, a master-planned community east of Livermore, California that’s as special as the people who call it home. The best way to learn what it’s like living there is to experience it firsthand, but we wanted to help tell the story of Mountain House before potential buyers decided to visit.

Two YouTube video campaigns were created to share the narrative with as many people as possible. For the first, it was discovered that the early residents of Mountain House consider themselves to be pioneers and are bonded together in the shared experiences of living in this unique community. Called “Mountain House Moments,” the video series captures residents recalling memories and experiences that have made Mountain House home.

The second campaign, “Voices of Mountain House,” includes several videos that provide a kind of behind-the-scenes look at how various teams and entities have come together to execute the shared vision for the community. Key stakeholders such as new buyers, longtime residents, educators, builders and the developer talk about the thought and strategy behind Mountain House, from community planning, home design, education and access to nature and open spaces.

Check out a Voices of Mountain House video below. View more videos on the Mountain House YouTube channel HERE.


It’s the first day of summer, and it already has us dreaming of backyard BBQs, poolside margaritas, beachy vacations and the easy breeziness that represents the lifestyle of June, July and August.
