• "Secure living, close to shopping and banking, heated garage with car wash – a brand new home with great amenities and we’re saving money with a better lifestyle. What more could you ask for?"

    Perry and Linda of Sioux City

  • "I’m looking forward to the no-maintenance lifestyle and fellowship with neighbors. My family is very supportive of my decision to move and you can’t beat the financial benefits of the Village Cooperative!"

    Denna of Sioux City

  • "I nearly walked away from Villages, but with the help of my realtor and Penny Shedek, I am reassured that I won't move twice and that I can relax about this."

    Les of Cedar Rapids

  • "We liked the fact that we won’t have to invest all our money into the Cooperative, leaving us more capital to work with other investments."

    George and Jean of Asbury

  • "Having lived for 13 years in a cooperative setting, we are familiar with the benefits and The Village has addressed all our concerns in a cooperative. The all-inclusive payment will save us money and the age specific environment is also a benefit."

    Bill and Phyllis of Clinton

  • "The first thing that was important to us was the new lifestyle...carefree, new friends, and community living. When we are gone for the winter, our home will be looked after - of course no mowing or snow shoveling either! Plus, with the security we'll have, we know our safety is taken care of."

    Bill and Jane of Cedar Falls

  • "In 2009, John and I got the most devastating news any couple could get. John was diagnosed with Myelodisplastic Disease, for which there is no cure. He was given about 3 years to live. We started thinking about what I would do when he was gone. When we heard about Village Cooperative we decided to investigate further. What we learned convinced me that this would be a good option for me. I signed up and this proved to be all I had hoped for, except that John was not able to join me – he died on July 6th, 2012. I could not have made a better decision. The friendships I have made and the camaraderie we co-op members have is just what I needed. I also love the fact that it will be a very secure home with many wonderful amenities."

    Donna of Cedar Rapids

  • " Our home is light, comfortable, safe and convenient with plenty of storage space.  But of all we are surrounded by friendly people.  We enjoy the many activities available to us and yet everyone can choose to live as privately as they like."

    Morris and Marian of Fergus Falls

  • "We heard about Village Coop in 2010 from my uncle. He was extremely eager to share their experience in Marshalltown and I was convinced it was the way to go. When we heard the coop in Cedar Rapids was being built in the area we're looking for a condo, we decided this was meant for us."

    LeRoy and Fran of Cedar Rapids

  • "The cost of the buy-in compared to purchasing a single family home or condo greatly interested us as our cost of living will be reduced. We look forward to losing lawn care, snow removal, and no stairs to climb when doing laundry."

    Robert and Martha of Cedar Falls
