Steve Upchurch is the construction superintendent for the San Marino Subdivision being built by San Joaquin Valley Homes on the northwest corner of Visalia at Riggin and Shirk. He’s been working hard wrapping up the eight or nine homes in various stages of completion.

So last week Steve took a vacation to visit his daughter in Southern California. First, he helped his daughter and her friends finish up a construction project on their neighborhood church.

Then when watching television news, he saw the damage done to Texas by Tropical Storm Harvey. Steve jumped in his pickup truck and headed for Houston.

Steve spent the second half of his vacation helping clean up the aftermath of the hurricane damage. When a friend found out what Steve had done, he heaped praise on Steve’s unselfish acts of kindness. Steve simply said, “I’m glad I could help out.”

Sweet!

“We are eagerly anticipating the introduction of our Chandler Park models to the Hanford community,” said Joe Leal, co-founder for Visalia-based SJV Homes. “This development will fill a void in the community that has a proven demand for new housing”.

Chandler Park will offer three- and four-bedroom homes with two- or three-car garages in five floor plans ranging from 1,443-2,100 square feet. The homes will have covered front porches, nine-foot ceilings, energy-efficient windows and fixtures, kitchens with snack bars and islands, washable cabinets resistant to scratches and heat and walk-in closets. A wide variety of upgrades and options will be available.

Hanford is a growing community with one of California’s most thriving downtowns.
Chandler Park is located two miles from downtown Hanford and less than two miles from the Hanford Amtrak station. This new neighborhood is serviced by Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, Woodrow Wilson Junior High and Hanford West High School. Hanford was recently named one of the “Prettiest Painted Places in America” by the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute.

Founded in 2013 by Joe Leal, Jim Robinson and Randy Merrill, SJV Homes plans on selling its 1,000th home by July, making it one of the region’s most active homebuilders.

Chandler Park is a joint venture project with Presidio Residential Capital, a San Diego-based real estate investment company that funds 100 percent of the projects and operations of SJV Homes.

Sedona at Palo Verde

San Joaquin Valley Homes plans to open at least three new communities this year after ending 2016 on a strong note with a 25 percent increase in the number of houses closed compared to the year before.

Founded in 2013 by Joe Leal, Randy Merrill and Jim Robinson, SJV Homes is shooting to build its 1,000th house by the end of this year. New communities would include the 113-home Chandler Park in Hanford opening in June; Chelsea West, an 81-home neighborhood, in Visalia; and a high-density, single-family project with 51 home sites in Visalia.

“As we enter our fourth year building beautiful single-family homes in the San Joaquin Valley market, we are thrilled with our continued success,” Leal said in a news release.

Last year, the builder opened three communities: Sedona with 53 single-family homes in east Tulare; 87 homes at Viscaya in Dinuba; and Pine River Estates, a 37-acre community with 144 houses in Visalia.

The company sold 305 homes in 2016. It built and closed escrow on 297 homes, up from 237 houses closed in 2015.
