PGA proximity sells the Garbers on Hollyhock
Shelbi and Geoff Garber were living in Plano when they decided to move to Frisco, to be closer to both of their families.
Now happily settled into their new home in Hollyhock, they are just 5 minutes away from their relatives. They are even closer to their major reason for choosing Hollyhock over other Frisco communities: the new PGA of America headquarters next door.
Opening in 2022, the PGA development will bring 45 holes of golf, world-class shopping, a resort and conference center, and parks and trails to a location that touches Hollyhock’s borders.
“Geoff is a huge golf fan, and as soon as we heard about the PGA, that sold us on Hollyhock,” Shelbi says.
Looking ahead to having children, the Garbers liked the young and family-oriented vibe of Hollyhock, especially compared to their older community in Plano. Hollyhock’s parks and trails are also a great perk for their two Pomeranians, Emmett and Cooper.
They also loved the modern design aesthetic of their Hollyhock builder, Trophy Signature Homes.
They chose the Claridge plan, a four-bedroom, three-bath home with an open family room, a covered patio and an upstairs gameroom. The base price from the mid $400,000s includes many standard features, such as hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with cedar beams, a home automation package, double convection ovens, and a modern horizontal fireplace.
“We felt like we were getting so much for our money with Trophy Signature in Hollyhock,” Shelbi says. “The modern, white design package coordinated everything from the countertops and the cabinets, to the paint and hardware. The entire process was very easy, and we really didn’t have to add anything extra to get a complete home with a design that we love.”
Both Shelbi and Geoff are North Texas natives. She grew up in Rockwall, and he was raised in Plano. Geoff is a tech entrepreneur who founded a streaming toolkit company that he sold to Streamlabs, where he now works. He also invests in multifamily real estate.
Shelbi is an office coordinator for an investment firm, but her real passion is photography, and she looks forward to the day when she can pursue it full time.
Even doing photography as a side gig, Shelbi has developed a thriving client base for family and newborn portraits, senior photos, holiday shoots and just about any other occasion. She also takes a lot of photos for the growing community of lifestyle bloggers and social media influencers in the Frisco area.
