• "My children are so excited for me to live in a secure community.  I will enjoy getting to know my new neighbors.  My house is getting to be a lot of work and to go across the icy street for my mail is scary.  I can hardly wait."

    Beverly of Marshalltown

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "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 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

  • "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

  • "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

  • "We love the location – close to our friends, our church, shopping and medical facilities. It’s time to get out of our large house, yard work and start to enjoy our new no-maintenance lifestyle!"

    Mick and JoAnn of Sioux City

  • "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
