• "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

  • "The idea of being able to leave home whenever we want without the worry and hassle of arranging a care-taker is a big draw. The maintenance-free living feature takes the worry out of the day to day maintenance our house requires. The additional features of an exercise room, community and club room are things we will use regularly. Our kids see the benefits we’ll enjoy and they will not miss the burden of taking care of our property when we’re gone."

    Rick and Connie of Sioux City

  • " 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

  • "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

  • "Moving to the Village Cooperative, almost two years ago, has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!  I absolutely love living here in this beautiful building, and my home is just what I wanted and needed.  I have made so many good friends here at the Village Cooperative.  It is a wonderful place to live."

    Susan of Marshalltown

  • "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

  • "The Co-op makes real sense because you have little or no worries about safety, security, maintenance, etc. I’ve visited other Village Cooperatives and was delighted to find that the residents love their new homes. I really don’t know what more a person could ask for with this lifestyle."

    Bob of Cedar Rapids

  • "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

  • "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
