Living in Walker Villas!


“Come and sit in the model in the afternoon” is Linda’s advice when searching for a new condo home in Walker Villas. Our homeowners are our best assets and we love them. We want you to hear from them about Walker Villas and what it is like to live here!


Name: Brian and Linda Reigle


How long have you lived in Walker Villas?

We have lived here for 14 months.


What do you love most about living in Walker Villas and why?

We like the open floor plan and the outdoor living space. The open floor plan enables us to enjoy the entire home and make it seem larger than it really is. We also enjoy our covered and open patio. We have a gas fireplace and a large screen TV under the covered part and plenty of room to enjoy the sun and stars on the open part.


How was your experience building in Walker Villas?

We did not build. We were able to purchase an existing unit that totally fit our wants and needs.


What is your favorite aspect of your home and why?

We love the simplicity of living in a maintenance-free home. We thought downsizing would be difficult, be we actually found it to be liberating and simplistic.


What advice would you give someone planning to move to Walker Villas?

Come and sit in the model in the afternoon. Appreciate the amenities and the open floor plan. Then sit on the covered patio where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Know that you don’t have to cut the grass or mulch the flowerbeds. Take a walk around and see that you are in a small community of very friendly neighbors.
