Stonecrest Homes is now building in Lake Forest - ideal for families, including military, who are looking for new-home value and neighborhood amenities in a top school district.

Call-A-Key Gives Instant Access to Properties at Many Stonecrest Communities

Call-A-Key has been a very useful tool for Stonecrest Homes. Today’s buyer is independent and enjoys looking at homes themselves without the restriction of having to call their realtor to see a new home. Call-A-Key gives them that opportunity.

Stonecrest Homes now has Call-A-Key locks at 8 of its 10 communities.  Call-A-Key is a secure, keyless entry system where buyers call to gain access to specific homes in Stonecrest’s communities.  Buyers are verified and given instant access to the home with a one-time use code to unlock the door.

The Call-A-Key program notifies Stonecrest’s agent when a buyer walks through the door with real-time information. Stonecrest agents then have a viable phone number to follow up with and the opportunity to talk with the buyer while they are still touring the home.

“In today’s ever changing market conditions we need to be available almost 24 hours a day. Call-A-Key allows us to have that incredible flexibility. We can be available on our customers time,” said Jason Janssen, general sales manager for Stonecrest Homes.
