    Brent Reviews

    1 review
    Brent is a good, little community. It has a small town feel and offers a lot of southern hospitality. If you are wanting to get away from it all and escape to the country side, this is the place for you. Some of the downsides of living here are that you are far from the bigger cities, there are not a ton of things to do, and there are not a lot of job opportunities.
