• " 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 travel several times throughout the year and will enjoy the security of leaving the Village with no cares about mail, papers, plant care, or maintenance while we are gone. I have used my snow blower and shovel very effectively over the years, but now I can let somebody else take care of that for me, and I won’t miss it at all.”"

    Dick and Sharon of Ames

  • "Our townhouse was feeling way too big for us so we were looking for “the next” place.  The ad for Village Cooperative in our mailbox got our attention and we investigated further.  It was “wow!” from then on.  Everything looked perfect for us:  no maintenance, manageable space, convenient access, very affordable, lock up and leave, and a ready-made community of friends."

    Don and Pat of Ames

  • "Each home is just like living in a house but without the work and maintenance; and yet has everything a person could want. The best thing is we are coming back home and the project is long overdue for Clinton."

    Frank and Jan of Clinton

  • "We appreciate the privacy, the choice of socializing and the quiet, convenient setting. We were ready to give up gardening, yard care, snow removal and all the upkeep projects. We love the benefit of living in a neighborhood where you know your neighbors and they are all active like we are. We love it here!"

    Don and Karen of Asbury

  • "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

  • "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

  • "This is the most affordable option I have seen. I'll have freedom of worry about in and outdoor upkeep, live in a secure building, and belong to a group of people that will help each other out if needed."

    Anne of Cedar 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

  • "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
