    A moving tale... I was a Realtor for 22 years. Therefore, when the time came to move, I was very picky. I scrutinized every community in the region for location, financial condition, ambiance, floor plans, landscaping, activities, costs, etc. To put it in more poetic terms:
    A New Jersey couple contemplated relocating
    To a neighborhood attractive and invigorating.
    They checked out villages far and wide,
    But it was so easy to decide.
    They made a smart move to Lake Ridge, and they're celebrating!

    Lake Ridge is a wonderful neighborhood! The people are very involved with the community and are so friendly. We moved in last year and quickly made new friends who showed us around and helped get us involved in lots of different clubs. We looked at a lot of different communities like this and found Lake Ridge to be the most happening in terms of the social atmosphere. It's fun living here!
