At 14 years old, Joshua Huller has discovered a lifelong passion for tennis. Coming from Canada, this tennis enthusiast has had the incredible opportunity to play at one of the most renowned tennis academies in Boca Raton and practice on the courts at Boca West Country Club. This young man’s passion for tennis was just the start of his journey that led to his family to putting down roots in the prestigious Boca Raton community.
A Passion for Tennis
On top of being a stellar student, Joshua has fallen in love with the sport of tennis. He trains over five hours each day and hopes to pursue a professional career after graduating college. Recently, Joshua and his younger brother Ethan both received the opportunity to train at the prestigious and acclaimed Evert Tennis Academy in Boca Raton. Thanks to the Academy’s partnership with Boca West, they found themselves playing at least once a week on the meticulously maintained 29 Hydro Tennis courts at the Club’s impressive tennis center.
“Apart from other academies, the program at Evert was best for me. The coaches motivate me, and they never leave a player behind,” said Joshua Huller. “Their partnership with Boca West gives me access to a lot of high-quality courts, practicing off-hours, and incredible facilities.”
Boca West Realty Helps Find the Perfect Fit
As Joshua fell in love with the high-quality courts of Boca West, the whole family fell in love with the city of Boca Raton. Following practice one fateful Saturday afternoon, Joshua ventured into the Boca West Realty office and met with Russell Yellin to inquire about homes available in the community. Although most real estate professionals might not take a 14-year-old seriously, Russell worked hard to connect the teen and his family to their perfect home. With his parents still in Canada, Joshua took the lead. Now, they are in the closing process for a property in the Willow Wood neighborhood, hoping to spend longer periods of time in Boca Raton to support their children’s tennis aspirations. Eventually, the family hopes to make Boca West their full-time home
“Russell was hands-on from day one,” said Joshua’s father, Miguel Huller. “He did a great job understanding the needs of the family and finding us our perfect fit. When he told us about this property, we didn’t have second thoughts. We made an offer the same day because it was exactly what we were looking for.”
A Desirable Boca Raton Lifestyle
As one of the 55 distinct communities within Boca West, the Willow Wood community is filled with garden homes and condominiums. These 2- to 3-bedroom residences feature stunning views of the nearby lakes and gardens, with the community’s largest satellite pool and a short game golf practice area adjacent to the neighborhood. The Boca West community also has amenities that capture the interest of everyone in the family, including four 18-hole championship golf courses, an Aquatics Center, a Fitness Center, seven world-class dining venues, a luxurious spa, and retail boutiques. The enticing lifestyle of Boca West and the surrounding city allows this family to watch their son thrive with his passion in the sunny and tropical climate of South Florida.
“We went to Boca West and fell in love with the place,” said Miguel Huller. “We were moving from another country, but they were all so inviting. We are all sporty people, but the quality of the community and social activities is also important to us. Here, we found that it’s not just buying a house. Each of us became a part of an incredible community in our own way.”
