Mike & Mitsi Messier

The Messiers were looking for a simpler way to leave home for the winter when they learned about the advantages of cooperative living. After almost joining a different coop community, they quickly changed their minds once they found out about the superior amenities, location, and development team behind Brown Deer Cooperative. They're now excited to be moving to a brand new, golf course adjacent community!

Victoria Steelman

As a Coralville resident, Victoria Steelman had been hoping for many years for a residential project to be developed adjacent to Brown Deer Golf Course. Having a maintenance free living experience to allow worry-free traveling was important to her as well. Learning that Brown Deer Cooperative would provide both of these things, as well as outstanding construction quality and customization, made joining an easy decision.
