Second Annual Hometown Holiday Event at Ten Trails
Ten Trails is having our second annual Hometown Holiday event on December 7th from 3 to 6:30 pm! This year’s event will be even bigger than last year with tours of model homes featuring family-friendly crafts, selfies with Santa in our Welcome Center, music, carolers, and a bounce house. The days’ events will culminate with Santa lighting the Christmas tree in our Village Green Park.
Stop by our Welcome Center first to grab a map to the model homes and take a photo with Santa! The first 100 people to visit will receive a free cupcake. Don’t forget to bring your donation items for the Black Diamond Community Center. We are collecting non-perishable food items, diapers, and toothpaste for families in need in our local area.
Our 14 model homes will be open from 10 am to 5 pm on December 7th for touring, with holiday craft stations set up in four models from 3 to 5 pm. Activities include sugar cookie decorating at the MainVue model home, letters to Santa at the Ichijo model, ornament making at the Lennar Hazelwood model and holiday stocking painting at the Conner Homes model.
Head over to the Village Green Park from 5 to 6:30 pm and bring your appetite! We will have food trucks serving dinner items as well as the Legendary Donuts truck. Listen to all the biggest holiday hits as well as music from live carolers while sipping on complimentary hot cocoa, hot apple cider and non-alcoholic hot buttered rum. A DJ and bouncy house will be there to keep everyone entertained while they await Santa’s big arrival. Mountain View Fire and Rescue will deliver Santa on a decorated fire truck to the Village Green Park for the lighting of our holiday tree at 6 pm!
We hope to see you there!

Meet some of Ten Trails’ newer residents, the Rae family! Ben and Sarah Rae moved their family of five to the community from nearby Covington and couldn’t be happier with their new Lennar Aspen model home! “We came from a three-bedroom home and needed more space,” says Ben of the couple’s initial reason for moving. “We also were hoping to move into a neighborhood where the kids would have other children their own age to play with, and we definitely found that here at Ten Trails.”
The Raes love spending time in the community park that’s just steps away from their front door, and the family enjoys taking walks over to the Civic Park where the Rae kids: Benny, Sophia and June, enjoy the playground equipment and playing hockey in the sports court. “We also bought bikes after moving in so we could bike around the community,” says Sarah. “We love the wide sidewalks that make it easy for all of us to bike.”
Ben and Sarah were attracted to the Lennar Homes at Ten Trails because of the layouts and the builder’s “everything’s included” philosophy where Smart Home Technology and Voice Automation services, as well as things like windows and blinds, and stainless steel appliances are all set up in the home and included in the purchase price. “It was a tough choice between the Aspen and the Magnolia models,” says Sarah. “But we are really happy with our decision.” The family loves spending time in the home’s large, open great room and having the huge kitchen island for meal prep.
One of the pleasant surprises Ben and Sarah found when choosing to move into Ten Trails was how quickly they were able to meet other families in the community. “We have a text chain with some of the local couples and we all love to get together at the community firepits,” says Ben. “We have enjoyed how easy it has been to get to know neighbors since we’ve moved in.”
Welcome to Your New Hometown, Rae family! We are happy you chose to move to Ten Trails!

Ten Trails is happy to share that Mike Calkins has joined the Conner Homes sales team in the community! Mike brings more than 27 years of real estate and new home construction experience to his new role, and is eager to help visitors to the community find the ideal Conner Homes floorplan that suits their family’s lifestyle.
Mike has been working for many years in the new construction field, but his career started on an entirely different path over in Leavenworth, WA where he ran a mountaineering school for four years. That opportunity led him to become a youth pastor for several years, then he left that calling to become a new home builder. Before going back into new construction sales in 2012, Mike also spent time as a developer in eastern Washington.
One of the best parts of Mike’s job at Ten Trails is meeting all the different types of families that are looking for homes and sharing with them the developer’s vision for the community. “You just get such a great sense of community living here that you can’t find anywhere else,” says Mike. “It feels like living in a small, close-knit town, but you are nearby to shopping, restaurants and medical services.”
Guests at the Conner model home at Ten Trails can learn from Mike about the builder’s thoughtful attention to detail. “Conner Homes has been building in the Seattle area for more than 60 years and has a positive reputation and following in the area,” says Mike. “I’ve met people at the model home who come here just because they own a Conner home already and are huge fans of the builder and want to see what we are working on currently.” Mike describes the Conner Homes at Ten Trails as “northwest contemporary” in style with low-maintenance yards, full-sized driveways and tons of windows. “The window placement is really something that sets these homes apart,” says Mike. “The location of all the windows really allows for tons of natural light to pour into the homes.”
Mike is at the Conner Homes model at Ten Trails five days a week. Stop by and say hello and be sure to ask him about Conner Homes’ current “Home for the Holidays” new home promotion!
Meet Ryan Summers, a second generation broker from a family of brokers. Ryan grew up with discussion about the housing market part of his daily life since he was young. As he became an adult, his lifelong immersion in the real estate industry drew him to consider a career in that field. Ryan began his foray into the new construction industry as a journeyman carpenter, then went on to become a real estate photographer. Now, as a broker himself, Ryan draws on his past experience and family connection to the real estate industry to help clients find homes in today’s fast-paced Seattle market, and as a listing agent for Ichijo’s new duet models at Ten Trails!
According to Ryan, Ichijo has quite a few building practices that set the company apart. “Ichijo has its own proprietary features that stand out from other builders,” he says. “Things like the pull-down shelf in the kitchen, low-profile magnetic door stops, and our building envelope technology are included with the new duet homes at Ten Trails. The company is also very environmentally friendly,” says Ryan. “Energy efficiency is one of the key characteristics of all of Ichijo’s homes.”
When he’s not at the Ichijo duet models at Ten Trails, or working with his clients, Ryan enjoys street photography, creating and editing video content for his YouTube channel, hiking trails, or checking out new vegan restaurants in the Seattle area with his girlfriend. Stop by the Ichijo duet models at Ten Trails and say hello to Ryan while you are there!
