As entrepreneurs in the music industry, Winston and Nicole Thomas lived a busy lifestyle in Broward County, Florida. They were long time renters and as their family grew, they wanted to become homeowners. The search began but everything they saw in Broward within their budget was too small. They needed space for their family of five as well as two home offices to run their businesses. “We could not find what we wanted at a price we liked,” Nicole shared. “I remember thinking are we going to be renting forever?” Luckily the couple was introduced to Ave Maria through a good friend. “I remember driving into the entrance of Ave Maria saying “Wow, this place feels like an oasis,” Winston shared. “I immediately felt a vibe, it felt a little too perfect… Is this too good to be true?”  


Finding their new dream home was easy to come by because of the town’s reasonable pricing and countless floor plan options. New Homes in the master-planned community range from the high $200s to $800s. Builders in Ave Maria include Pulte Homes, CC Homes, Del Webb Naples and Lennar.  

Fast forward five years and they immersed themselves in the community. Winston works as a DJ at restaurant/bar in the Town Center and Nicole continues creating custom baby clothes for clients near and far. They also just launched a new ‘Everything Ave Maria” business, educating residents of everything there is to do in Ave Maria. “We see this place as a goldmine for business and investment, we love the peacefulness and safety we feel. We don’t have to worry so much about our kids,” said Winston.


“We saw a bunch of bikes scattered on the grass and sidewalks and were amazed they were unlocked. We were blown away by that,” Winston admitted. “What we love most about Ave Maria is the family-minded people. Our neighbors think family first, such as schools, environment, and safety. We wanted our kids to grow up in a better environment than what we grew up in. We found that and more in Ave Maria.”
