Ventana by Buckner: Luxury & Value for Retirement

(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TEXAS – Consumer Team News)    The corner of Central Expressway & Northwest Highway is getting ready for a big change. Ventana by Buckner, twin 12 story luxury high rise towers, will offer DFW residents a new concept in retirement living.  Consumer Team host Pete Thomson recently called Ventana ‘a game changer’ for retirement.  Thomson added, “Ventana will change the way people retire in Dallas.   It combines luxury and excellence with the integrity of Buckner Retirement Services.”

Excellence and luxury permeates all aspects of the new Ventana.  From the floor-to-ceiling views of downtown Dallas and the Park Cities to world-class restaurants to a spa and health club, life at Ventana will be filled with luxury.   Thomson said, “At Ventana, you’re just minutes away from all the best that Dallas has to offer.  Restaurants, entertainment and shopping are all within minutes.   This is a very appealing lifestyle.”

According to Thomson, the value that Ventana delivers is unsurpassed.  He added, “From a value standpoint, we like the fact that Ventana’s monthly fee includes a number of services that are normally additional charges at other retirement communities.  These extra charges often add up to thousands of dollars every year.  When you run the numbers and truly account for all the services are included at Ventana, the value is very apparent.”

Thomson also praised the continuing care aspect of Ventana.  Thomson said, “When someone moves to Ventana they can be confident that many of the services they’ll need through their retirement life will be available at the Ventana campus.  That makes life much less stressful, especially during the times that a person needs more medical services.”

The integrity part of Ventana, according to Thomson, comes from Buckner Retirement Services.  He said, “Buckner has been impacting lives for over 100 years.  Their support of orphaned children dates back to just after the Civil War.   Buckner Retirement Services brings a level of integrity to Ventana that is very meaningful.   We believe the non-profit approach to retirement services is superior to for-profit on a number of levels, most notably the quality of care.”

For people weighing their options for retirement, Thomson recommends meeting the team at Ventana. He said, “Ventana’s information center overlooks the site where Ventana will be built.  And their model of the two 12-story towers really makes Ventana come alive.”

Consumer Team: Ventana is Changing Retirement in Dallas

(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TX – Consumer Team News)   The corner of Northwest Highway and Central/Hwy 75 is about to change in a big way.

Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, says  he considers Ventana to be the future of retirement living. Thomson said, “People are very impressed with the the luxury of Ventana.  It will be a stunning community with beautiful views of the Dallas skyline.   There are some other major benefits.  First, Buckner Retirement Services is building Ventana.  Buckner is one of the most trusted names in North Texas.   Beyond that, Ventana will be a continuing care retirement community which means that residents will have access to many healthcare and medical services on-campus at Ventana, and at rates that are very predictable.   Over the span of a person’s retirement, we believe that Ventana’s pricing model delivers much more for the dollar and gives consumers more control over their budgets during retirement.”

The Consumer Team will feature different aspects of Ventana during on-air interviews on 1080 KRLD Radio.   Thomson said, “Our interviews on retirement and Ventana will be very educational.  We’ll be talking to the leadership of Ventana and Buckner Retirement Services.   We’ll also feature several people who will be among the first to move to Ventana when it’s complete.”

The Consumer Team with Pete Thomson is broadcast Saturdays from 6-8 PM on CBS Radio’s 1080 KRLD.   The Consumer Team is produced by McQ Media Inc, Dallas, Texas.
