Finding the Perfect Location

New homeowners at The Bluffs, the Zetlmaiers, recently experienced the wonder of living at The Bluffs on the Cape Fear after moving from California. They searched around for homes in surrounding areas, but never found a community that truly suited their needs. When Mrs. Zetlmaier came across The Bluffs during an online search she knew immediately that it was the one for her. The private gated community along a beautiful riverfront, combined with the beautiful southern architecture made The Bluffs on the Cape Fear the perfect place for their new home.

The Bluffs’ team prioritizes its homeowners and does everything in their power to make them feel immediately at home – even before they move in. “They are friendly and are interested in you and will answer all your questions in a timely manner,” said Mr. Zetlmaier. “We are very pleased in the way the staff here at The Bluffs have assisted us in selling our home [in CA] and buying our new home here,” said Mr. Zetlmaier. “The staff still helps us if we have any questions or concerns, they are super, and in our case — good neighbors.”

Home Sweet Home

The Zetlmaiers moved into their new home on July 5th, 2017, but became part of the community earlier than that, as Mr. Zetlmaier says, “We were even invited to the pool party this past Fourth of July!” They were so pleased with their home buying experience they already said they would “absolutely” recommend The Bluffs on the Cape Fear to their friends and family.
