Elm Grove is a unique place. It has everything you would expect and more. The community is kind, generous, and caring. The neighborhoods are safe and welcoming. The school systems are diverse as well as the members of the community. It is a very safe and kid-friendly town. Also, it is a relaxing place with a park and fun cafes around every corner. Although many people view it as a wealthier community, which is true many people are wealthy in Elm Grove, it also has layers. Like the rings inside of a tree, Elm Grove has many different people in it. I think I enjoy living here not just because of the pace itself, but because of the people.

I have lived in Elm Grove for about five years now and absolutely love it! There’s a strong sense of community and most of the younger families moving in have grown up in this area. It has somehow maintained that neighborhood feel I grew up in many years ago and didn’t think was possible to find today.
Great community, safe. Able to walk downtown and grab a drink or dinner. Sometimes they have music down there and just a great community to be a part of.
