Welcome New Neighbors

Linda Shannon-Hills

Welcome to our new homeowners moving into our beautiful community. We have a wonderful welcome program for all new residents to SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR).

Moving can be a daunting experience, so SBR is fortunate to have a team of Newcomers Welcome volunteers who can offer a brief respite from those rigors. Our experienced team of volunteer residents has information that can help you settle into our community and the local area.

Within a month to six weeks of moving into their new homes, newcomers receive a welcome email from our group that includes our Settler’s Guide—a handbook for the Ranch, SBR activities and clubs listings, how to order a resident SBR name badge, a list of local restaurants, and history about the Oracle community and Arizona. We also include the resident’s Contractors and Services Recommendations Directory.

If you have lost or not seen the Newcomers Welcome email with attachments, send an email to [email protected] to have the information sent to you again. A new homeowner can expect a call, email, or text message from a unit resident volunteer to extend a welcome and to answer any of your questions.

Each month, the Newcomers Welcome volunteers hold a gathering for new homeowners and renters. You are invited to attend to learn more about our community. We take photographs of homeowners to be included in the SaddleBrooke Ranch Roundup newspaper. It is optional to have your photograph taken, but it is a good way to be introduced to the community.

We encourage all new residents to visit the SBR Front Desk to meet Jamie Shipley, located at the opposite end of the Ranch House Grill, to receive their orientation information for SaddleBrooke Ranch. We also encourage renters to visit Jamie to receive a renter’s card to use at the fitness center and indoor pool. Jamie can register you with access to other HOA information.

The group of Newcomers Welcome volunteers consists of SBR residents who enjoy meeting people and welcoming them to our community. They are active and enthusiastically involved with many of the clubs and organizations.

If you have further questions, contact Jamie Shipley at [email protected] or volunteer Linda Shannon-Hills at [email protected].

Pat and Steve Lotker left California for their new home in Unit 18B. They enjoy playing Mah Jongg, table tennis, and billiards.

Teri Thomas and Nancy Worby, formerly of Pennsylvania and now in Unit 21A, are already busy with pickleball, gardening, and the Technology-Creative Arts Center. A puppy will soon join Maki, their cat.
