• "Living at the Village Cooperative means not having to worry about household repairs.  Whether it is an appliance, electrical or even a plumbing problem, we just call the office!"

    Al and Sue of Fergus Falls

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "Village Cooperative offers a unique opportunity to meet more friends with their feeling of ‘community’. Add to that, no snow or lawn care, zero maintenance and a worry-free lifestyle and you really can’t beat it. The value is incredible!"

    Shari of Sioux City

  • "We can own our living space which makes it an investment for us as well as a positive lifestyle change. Also, our neighbors are people in our age group who are looking for the same lifestyle change as us!"

    Bob and Sue of Clinton

  • "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
