We've loved Blandford Homes for years. When we lived in Mountain Bridge, a nearby master planned community by Blandford, we were very happy with the builder and the community. Mountain Bridge is a gated community. Blandford designed that community so that the models and sales office were separated from the residence homes. This meant that the residents were able to live in their private gated community without dealing with the traffic coming from the sales office and model homes. This is important for families with children and for the general quality of the community. Less traffic is safer for everyone, and less wear-and-tear on the community.
When Blandford announced they were building the Estates at Thirty-Second and that it was going to be a gated community, we were thrilled. Our family had grown and we needed a larger home. We fell in love again with the new homes at the Estates at Thirty-Second and we purchased and built our dream home there.
After we moved in, and as the community is being built out, we noticed something. Lots of traffic. Not just construction traffic (which is expected), but window shoppers from the sales office. We also noticed that the gates are being left open from 4am to 7pm, 7 days a week. That's not a gated community...
The community is nearly sold out, and we just discovered that Blandford is building three new communities that will have our same floor plans. One in Scottsdale (Sienna Hills Scottsdale), and two nearby here in Mesa (Estates on McDowell, and new one that appears to be under zoning). In fact, they are using our models here at the Estates at Thirty-Second to sell at these other communities. They are doing this while there are still lots available to sell here at the Estates at Thirty-Second. In fact, there are several lots over by the models that aren't listed for sale yet. This tells me that the builder plans to use our community model homes as a sales lot for their other locations for a long time.
We are already starting to see the impact of the gates being open nearly full-time. We've had theft, people speeding dangerously through our community that is full of families with young children, and strangers going to residence homes to look at them (sometimes knocking on the door to see more).
To be clear, I don't mind Blandford using our models to sell other communities. I wish the best for Blandford and I hope they continue to thrive. The issue that I have is that they are keeping our gates open from 4am to 7pm, 7 days a week, longer than the sales office is open, and longer than the construction contractors typically stay. Knowing that Blandford intends to use our community as their sales brochure for other locations, this gate issue may go one for years to come. That's not what I was told when we built our dream home in a gated community. I want Blandford to do something to protect the residents at the Estates at Thirty-Second and give us the gated community that we all paid a premium for.

My wife and I have five children. We have lived in a gated community and have always felt comfortable and safe letting our children play outdoors. When Blandford built their new development on 32nd Street in Mesa, we were one of the first families to express interest in purchasing a home. We were impressed with the Estates, and went out to the Mountain Bridge development to obtain further information. After much consideration and thought, we decided to sell our existing home and buy into the Blandford community at 32nd Street. The reasons included: close to schools, great neighborhood, big lots, and a great area of Mesa…but the paramount reason was for security. It was gated and we felt our family would be safe to roam the park and community areas. Even though the Estates did not include the upgraded amenities seen at Mountain Bridge (pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, etc.), we felt the safety of 32nd street was enough for us.
We have recently discovered that Blandford is building three new communities that will have our same floor plans. One in Scottsdale and two nearby here in Mesa. Rather than construct model homes to tour in the new developments, Blandford has decided to use OUR models in OUR community to sell lots in the other communities. They are doing this while there are still lots available to sell here at the Estates. In fact, there are lots by the models that have not even been listed yet; and won’t be listed because building on those particular lots would obstruct the “model views” from busy McKellips Road. In addition, without Blandford closing on those particular lots, we the homeowners, will NOT have control of the HOA and will be at the mercy of Blandford decision making for what looks to be many many years. We pay a premium in HOA fees each month – and having gates left wide open from 4 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week is NOT to be expected in a gated-community AND completely unacceptable!
My purpose in writing this negative review against Blandford has nothing to do with the quality of home. We love our new home! However, Blandford has been incredibly difficult to work with and has failed to provide the level of customer service expected in the purchase of an expensive estate in a gated community.
A positive outcome would be for Blandford to complete the buildout of our community, pass control of the HOA to members of the community, close the gates, and stop using our neighborhood as a “sales lot” for their other projects.

Our experience with Blandford Homes while our home was under construction was very unpleasant, but we hoped that after it was completed we would be able to move past the poor customer service and enjoy our new neighborhood.
During the design and construction process, as issues arose, it seemed extremely difficult to get Blandford Homes to take action. After we had made our deposit, it felt as if suddenly there were diverging goals and Blandford felt that they had us over barrel.
Even minor issues required weeks even months to resolve. Multiple phone calls, visits to the sales office, and e-mails in an effort to remedy issues that arose with with the fit and finish of the home were never acknowledged. Rather than being able to communicate directly with the superintendent or the contractors everything was routed primarily through the sales people. The salesmen seemed to run interference for the builder rather than help to resolve customer service concerns.
The single biggest issue we had with our home was that it was designed with a central courtyard, a courtyard which funnels a large portion of the roof runoff into a small space. During the construction process someone involved with the home building alerted us that our home would likely flood in a large rainstorm. We contacted Blandford repeatedly and even delayed our closing because the home did, in fact, flood during a severe rainstorm prior to closing. Only after another home buyer with a similar model and same risk for flooding contacted the inspectors for the City of Mesa, did Blandford finally come up with a system that would reliably protect the home from flooding in the monsoon season.
When we finally moved in, I can say we were relieved to be finished with the extremely stressful process of working with Blandford Homes. In fact, the process had been so unsatisfactory and the issue with flooding so serious that even after our original closing date we looked at homes for sale in nearby neighborhoods.
Recently, we have realized that Blandford Homes is using our neighborhood as a sales lot for their other projects. Unlike Mountain Bridge, where models are separate from the community, here in the Estates at 32nd the entire neighborhood both models and residences are open to anyone and everyone 15 hours a day 7 days a week.
Although the big sign out front lists the Estates at 32nd as a gated neighborhood, those gates will be wide open for what appears to be years to come as our neighborhood is used as nothing more than a sales lot for the Estates at McDowell and other Blandford Homes projects throughout the Valley.
We do like our home and we love our new neighbors, but working with Blandford Homes was an unnecessarily stressful and contentious process and now we find, as best as we can tell, there is no plan to finish construction in our neighborhood any time soon. It feels like a bait and switch that will leave this neighborhood open to potential buyers who are looking to build elsewhere, as well as criminals who may just want to case the homes. Even the park and playground are less safe because the people who bought here seem to be less valuable than the next customer in line.
If we had known prior to making our down payment what we know now, we would have looked elsewhere. Since the moment our down payment was made, we have felt like we were an inconvenience, not customers.
