Resident Spotlight

Darling Homes Resident Spotlight The Matijasevics

Michael and Kellie Matijasevic are proud parents to their three children Cooper, 6, Cannon, 5, and Capri, 4, as well as their Yorkie Louie. What makes Darling Homes at Newman Village in Frisco the perfect fit for their family of five? Find out in the new resident spotlight…

What made you decide to relocate to Newman Village?

Our home in Newman Village is now our third home in Frisco. My best friend from college and her family moved to the community first. When we would visit, Michael and I realized what a great neighborhood it was and decided to make the change from east Frisco.

What was it about Newman Village that made it the right fit?

We’ve lived in Newman Village for almost four years. It encompasses everything that represents community. There are always neighbors who look out for your house, your kids and simply everything. The community hosts fun events that cater to families with small kids, families with older kids and even empty nesters. We’re also looking forward to our children attending Newman Elementary School all at the same time!

What was it about your neighborhood that stood out from the rest you looked at?

The eclectic architecture and the community’s ambiance are what sold us. We wanted a place where our property would appreciate and hold value and a neighborhood where our kids could grow up in a community environment.

What is it about your home that stood out from the rest you looked at?

Not only was our home located in the greatest, gated community, but it was Mediterranean style. I grew up in New Mexico and my husband is from Los Angeles, so we’re familiar with and love the stucco style of architecture.

Is it a point of pride to be able to say you live in Newman Village?

It is and not because it has gates. It’s prideful because we feel blessed to have neighbors we can call friends. It’s a safe place to be.

What are some of your family’s favorite things to do together?

Travel! We love making memories with our sweet babies. They are only young once and we only live once. It’s important for us to experience new things and places together.

We also like to play sports, ride bikes and do cookouts in our cul-de-sac.

Do you use the amenity center? If so, what do you like about it?

Yes. From parties and pizza nights at the Discovery Center to hot summer days at the pool and even tennis lessons in the spring, there’s always something to do at Newman Village.

What do you like best about your neighborhood?

It’s a safe place for our kids to grow up. There are a million people we could call if we needed anything or if we were in any kind of bind. We really like how much fun it is, too. There are so many social activities for adults and family things to do. Everybody is so welcoming.

Would you recommend Newman Village to a friend or family member?

Absolutely! The more the merrier at Newman Village. It truly is a fantastic place to live and call home.

What’s one thing you’d like people to know most about living in Newman Village?

With gorgeous homes that hold value, good schools, great neighbors and lots of fun, there’s really no other place like it.
