Germantown is part of one of Wisconsin’s fastest-growing regions and though the community has itself experienced much in the way of residential and economic growth, it has successfully maintained a small-town charm that is cherished by nearly 20,000 residents. As new businesses continue to move into the community, more and more employees are choosing to relocate to Germantown, and with its location near downtown Milwaukee, the area has become a desirable place for commuters as well.
The Germantown area has preserved much of its natural land area, giving way to a quiet, more bucolic environment not typically found in the suburbs. But, Germantown is not rural in all senses; it features a wide assortment of big-city amenities ranging from excellent schools and hospitals to quality public services, recreational spaces and outlets for shopping, dining and entertainment. In addition, the area offers an excellent selection of home options for both buyers and renters. Prospective homebuyers discover a unique mix of old and new real estate throughout Germantown, which includes both sprawling and modest single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums. Ample housing opportunities are also available through rental homes and apartment units.
The quality of life is truly second-to-none in the Germantown area—and it has not gone unnoticed. The community has been recognized as one of Money magazine’s “Great American Towns; Best Places to Live” (2007, 2009, 2011) and was recently noted among Family Circle magazine’s “Ten Best Towns for Families” (2011).
