One of the first things newcomers notice about the Gillette and Campbell County area is its warm sense of community.
“I have loved Gillette since I moved here,” says Sherry McGrath, broker for ERA Boardwalk Real Estate. “Initially I felt we wouldn’t stay long, but after just a few weeks, I fell in love with the beautiful sunrises and sunsets and how everyone tries to help take care of each other. Then I got very involved in the community and loved how people in Gillette not only welcome your opinion, but encourage it.”
Another asset that draws new families to Gillette is its wide range of housing options, from existing and newly built single family homes to upscale apartments, townhomes and luxurious dream homes.
Booming Gillette Neighborhoods
“People have been loving the new construction in the price range of $179,000 to $320,000,” McGrath says. “RC Ranch has been very popular because it is so close to the the new Campbell County Recreation Center. Remington Estates was probably the second-most quickly built on because of its location.”
McGrath is grateful for the opportunity to sell homes in Gillette.
“I love telling people all the wonderful reasons they will want to move to Gillette, including how in Campbell County, kids are number one to the community,” she says.
College Park Townhomes
One of Gillette’s newest neighborhoods is College Park, a community of townhomes for lease that opened in June 2011. The complex features 72 two- and three-bedroom townhomes with stylish plank wood flooring, master suites, walk-in closets, garden tubs and kitchens with pendant lighting and breakfast bars.
“College Park residents enjoy our property because it offers all the features of a single family home plus the amenities of a complex,” says Renee Robidart, property manager at College Park. “There is no lawn mowing or snow shoveling here – our residents live a maintenance-free life.”
College Park even hosts monthly social activities for residents, ranging from barbecues to food drives, to help them get to know one another.
“Your home is one of the most important aspects of your life, so the staff at College Park works hard to create a community where our residents are comfortable in their homes and proud of their community," Robidart says. "Building relationships with our residents is the most enjoyable and rewarding part of working at College Park.”
“South Fork is a place to call home,” says Amy Hayden, general manager of South Fork Apartments. “We are Gillette’s premier luxury apartments. Our residents rave about our outstanding customer service and our quick and efficient maintenance. We always strive to go above and beyond their expectations.”
South Fork is unusual in that it offers completely furnished corporate apartments available for lease terms from 30 days to a year.
“Our corporate apartments are fully furnished with everything from linens and wireless Internet to a 42-inch TV,” Hayden says. “They also have weekly maid service. Literally all you need to move in is your suitcase.”
