Alex and Bijon (and their dog Daphne) are thrilled to be new homeowners at MDL Irvine. They did a lot of searching in a short amount of time, as they planned their relocation from Seattle to OC. Ultimately, they chose to live at MDL Irvine and this is why…
1. How did you find MDL Irvine?
Bijon grew up in Orange County, but with the ability to work from home, we decided to leave the cold and rainy weather of Seattle and head south. We started our search online and found MDL through Zillow.com.
2. Why did you choose MDL over another new home community?
We shopped many other new home communities, including The Great Park, Portola Springs and a few others in Irvine, as well as resale homes in Irvine. We wanted something that felt like our existing mid-century style home in Seattle. It needed to be a modern home that was spacious and suited our style. We felt homes in most of the master-planned communities were not our aesthetic, and were very narrow and compact. We fell in love with the modern, open design of MDL!

3. Why did you buy new over re-sale?
We just like the new, modern feeling of MDL with the community amenities and location. It’s so wonderful that we were able to personalize our new home during construction to make it feel like our own aesthetic. We selected numerous upgrades at the Design Center, including countertops, backsplashes, paint, flooring, and garage coating.
4. What were your “must haves” when searching for a home?
We really wanted multiple outdoor spaces, and a large open concept entertainment zone, separate from the living/sleeping areas. We love to entertain our family and friends and often have out-of-town guests visiting. With the rooftop deck, the main living area deck and the first floor courtyard, we have so many options for outdoor entertaining and lounging. We also really wanted a separate guest bedroom with an en-suite bath… so this is an ideal floor plan for us!
5. Were you happy with the options/upgrades to choose from at the MDL Design Center?
Yes, the Design Center had plenty of options for us to choose from. We upgraded our quartz countertops, kitchen backsplash, shower tile, flooring, paint, and added garage floor coating.
6. Were the community amenities, including the gated entry, important to you?
Yes, these all played a factor in our decision. We like having the security of the gates, and know that we will hang out at the pool and bbq’s with family and friends when the weather is warm.

7. How was your overall experience, from sales, design center, lender, construction, and customer service?
Our overall experience was great. Rebecca the Sales Manager was extremely knowledgeable and explained the process from beginning to end, keeping us informed along the way. Ericka our lender was also very helpful in processing our loan and speeding up the process. Our designer at the Design Center was also very professional and helpful when choosing our option selections. It was such a pleasant experience all around!
8. Would you refer a friend to Intracorp?
