The Preserve at Chino


(Chino, Calif.) – The Preserve at Chino by Lewis Community Developers is a Southern California destination where the ideal setting for family living welcomes you home. Where stories are sparked and life’s best moments are waiting to be unveiled, it’s a place that calls for planting family roots with the best spaces for living and growing. And for Tom Lin and his family, it was this place that sparked the story of their perfect home journey. With a promising lifestyle and great Chino location, The Preserve was the community they could afford without compromising value – where they knew they could experience home the way it’s meant to be.

Residents of Southern California for several years, Tom and his family called Diamond Bar home when he was hired by Woodside Homes in 2006, where they needed a Mandarin-speaking salesman in The Preserve’s sales office. Excited about this change in his career, Tom became well read on the Chino area and soon recognized the quality of the location with award-winning schools and only an hour from LA. After helping so many enthusiastic customers find their way home to The Preserve, Tom saw firsthand how fulfilled each new homeowner was with the unique community lifestyle. This soon led him to believe that he could offer his family so much more in the Chino area at a lower price. “I began to fall in love with the product I was selling. We didn’t have to move far to have a more affordable home that offered the same great location and schools with amenities that add even more value.”

With an eagerness to share with his family this Woodside Homes product he had become so passionate about, it wasn’t long before Tom brought his wife and daughter to visit The Preserve. The picture-perfect image of his daughter exploring The Parkhouse was what sparked his gut feeling that this could be the perfect place to plant his family’s roots. And that feeling grew once they toured the model homes at Palisades, where the stunning design and flexible floor plan of Plan 3 stole their hearts. “I knew I wanted to buy a model home, and Plan 3 was everything we wanted. And it’s right next to The Parkhouse.”

After Tom’s family’s visit to The Preserve, his coworkers at Woodside Homes were graciously able to make it possible for them to buy the Plan 3 model at Palisades, a beautiful two-story home. The home buying experience was everything Tom could have hoped for, and as far as the model home they chose, he had nothing but great things to say. “This is a single-family home on a true single-family lot, which is hard to find in Diamond Bar. We love the spacious great room and downstairs master bedroom. We even have four bathrooms and a loft.” Excited to dive into the incredible lifestyle that he knew came along with his new home, Tom knew that this was the right choice for his family.

Since moving to The Preserve, Tom and his family have enjoyed every second they’ve been able to explore the community, amenities and parks together. They never miss their weekly walks through the neighborhoods and to the community’s Nature Retreat Park. Here, they were able to get the perfect view of the Planes of Fame Airshow in May at the Chino Airport right next door. Tom loves the natural element the parks and green space add to the community. “It feels more suburban. I can see more sky; the air is fresher and there’s more open space.” Along with their favorite amenity, The Parkhouse, they are also enjoying all that Chino offers – a location just an hour from LA and close to the best of Southern California’s shopping, dining and entertainment. Tom is also looking forward to beating the traffic and lines at LAX when taking advantage of the newly offered China Airlines flights at the Ontario Airport just minutes from his new home.

When asked his opinion on The Preserve, Tom confidently said, “You won’t find anything similar with the same affordability and value.” And he and his wife love to share their story and experience with others. “We appreciate every moment at The Preserve. My wife has even convinced her best friend to move in next door. They’ve fallen in love with it too.” He is still on his journey to helping others fall in love with the product he’s become so passionate about. Because the Palisades homes were so popular at their first release, Woodside Homes has purchased 56 more lots to build more of these residences with the hopes of sparking more perfect love stories just like Tom’s.

The Preserve at Chino is located at 15871 Main Street, Chino, CA 91708. To learn more, visit or call (877) 440-7894.
