A very smart board has kept maintenance fees low throughout the years. This has made Greenbriar one of the most desirable 55+ communities in the state. Property values have kept going up as a result, while other communities with elaborate facilities and crazy fees are struggling. Some very wealthy residents live in Greenbriar as they understand smart value without smoke & mirrors!
We have resided here for 2 years. We are one of younger couples moving in, and still work full time. The office does not allow exceptions for working people, so when it snows we are forced to shovel every time in order to get to work. They will not plow out working people first, no exceptions made. Summer as well has very poor maintenance. The grass is never fully cut, nor are areas weed whacked. The pool area is very dated. The community landscape is very dated, 30 years of overgrown shrubbery. Do not waste your money, taxes are increasing and maintenance fees wasted monthly.
We bought here almost 10 years ago, I can't believe it! Our home is one of the original floor plans and we really love it. We've made some updates to the bathrooms and did all new carpets plus some new landscaping projects but other than that the house has been holding up well. It's a really casual environment here and very friendly. Yes, I've seen nicer communities with really fancy clubhouses but for me I just love how friendly our neighborhood is. It has everything we wanted in terms of perks like the fitness center, pools, tennis, etc ... but most important are the people we call "neighbors" are true friends.
