SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--Benchmark Communities (“Benchmark”), a leading national homebuilder known for its award-winning approach to customer service, today announced it will be expanding its presence in one of the fastest growing towns in California with the opening of its new home community, Cerrato, in Hollister.

Cerrato will feature 241 spacious homes, rich in character and filled with innovations. It is designed with walkable, tree-lined streets – the hallmarks of a classic neighborhood.

Homebuyers owe it to themselves to contact us today and learn more about this community.”

Hollister, which is located northeast of Salinas between Gilroy and San Juan Bautista along Highway 25, is the largest community in San Benito County, with a population that has more than tripled since 1980.
