My overall experience with the previous housing I was in was great. We had a friendly neighbors and everybody would speak to each other.

I am very please to live where I live. We are growing daily and there are so many wonderful businesses and people coming to our area. We get to experience a little bit of city life, but at a slower pace than most.
