“It’s not about real estate – it’s about relationships!” Cooperative community life is as unique as the people living in the cooperative. Here, you find people facing life issues together, and opportunities to participate socially with others who share similar interests. You will find time to develop new friendships, as well as the choice to enjoy the privacy of your individual home.

Cooperatives provide freedom from home maintenance

Rest assured, home maintenance responsibilities are taken care of for you. All repairs inside the home you have selected as well as the entire building, including service calls, lawn care, and snow removal are handled for you and included in the monthly fee. You have the assurance of knowing your home is secure, and with heated underground parking, you never have to battle the weather. Also, you can leave for a weekend, or the entire winter, secure in the knowledge that your home will be taken care of through our “While You’re Away” vacation service.

What do cooperative members have to say?

“All the comforts of home are available here, and there is time to enjoy them, without the challenges of the house and yard.”

“New friends – old time family.”

“I write fewer checks than I did in my previous home – so much is included in one monthly fee.”

“I am so happy that we chose to do this when we could do it ourselves and when it was fun, rather than a chore.”
