Average Rating for this Community

Wonderful, friendly community. I would disagree with the 2 people (note one of the negative reviews was repeated twice). There are rules, but not unreasonable. Enlargement of patios and driveways are permitted within guidelines. There is a desire to maintain green space ... which for me is one of the things that makes the community appealing.


Greenbriar WW is a very friendly community with really nice people. We've lived here about 5 years now and have made wonderful friends. We use the clubhouse all the time and are very active in the clubs and activities. It's so nice to be around people our age with common interests. It's the kind of community where you can ask your neighbor for a cup of sugar and yes I have done that when I was making cookies once!


A very friendly community. Yes, there are rules, or else the community would be a mess..The rules are reasaonable & help to keep "law & order".There is always someone that cannot be happy, if there are rules. Every city, & state has rules..There is a Board of Trustees, that addresses the necessary "needs" to keep us clean & proper..& they do it all on their own time & dedication to keep us "Lookin good" !


The amenities are lovely and the neighborhood is quiet. The rules are over the top and rarely actually helpful. It is NOT dog friendly. They allow me to own my dog like they’re extending me a favor. There’s no place to run the dog, and they have to be on a short leash even on my own property. This is made much worse by their terrible maintenance of the sidewalks. With all their crazy rules it’s somehow okay for people to let their trees grow to block the sidewalk. They also make zero effort to keep the sidewalks open in the snow. Half the year the sidewalks are useless. With all the money I pay for the facility’s upkeep, that they care so little about our dogs and sidewalks is infuriating.


Watch out very strict with rules. Wanted to extend my patio 2 feet to help my disabled husband have more room for walking with his can. They would not allow !!


Watch Out very strict with rules for exisitng changest to patio, even with disabled husband. (MS) They would not flex one bit!!


very strict rules for everything, from patio, to plantings, to placing storage bins to where you can park?
