Brentwood is a growing community that has come a long way in the thirty years I have lived here. When I first moved to Brentwood in the late 1980's, it was a small farm town that reminded my father of his hometown of Nevada, Iowa. Over the years, the residents have gathered to vote together, build schools together, and homes together to make Brentwood the expanding community it is today. There are always improvements underway. People walk the streets everyday for leisure, pet exercise, and personal fitness alike.
This town is one you want to raise your children and grandchildren in. It's a community where one small child learned he had cancer and the entire town came together to make sure he was able to raise enough funds to put up a fight.
It's a town you want to visit on the weekends picking fresh fruit from the orchard, or maybe touring the exquisite vineyards; better yet, watching your daughter marry her best friend on a Saturday afternoon. Brentwood is a place for all!
Review Brentwood
The schools are very nice and have so many resources, nice teachers, and good safety. There is an amazing local business presence including restaurants, produce, hair salons, etc. The weather is amazing here. The neighborhoods are typically very nice. Good roads, sidewalks, and parks! Very happy place.
Awesome place to live! Quiet and comfortable environment, where everyone is friendly and cordial. Schools are great, they have previously been rated in the top ten in the United States. Brentwood is a growing community with a small town feel. It is family friendly with great events for families to come together during the holidays and throughout the year.
