You helped me find a great retirement community for me and my husband.   Thanks so much.

First, let me say THANKS for the great job you do in researching the diverse towns for which you provide basic information.  It has been very enlightening to read these as my wife and I plan for retirement.

Your web-site is such a tremendous service to all retired people.  Thank you very much for providing it.

You guys do a great job covering potential retirement spots that the retirement books never even dream of.  

Please keep up the good work -- I absolutely love your newsletter.

I receive and enjoy reading your newsletter. Great information. 

Thanks for all the great articles. Your staff does a terrific job with all your features.

Keep up the good work. I've recommended your site to all of my retired friends.

I love your emails and read each one!

I recommended your sites during my talks and writings as a resource for looking for a retirement location.

Just wanted to drop you a note saying how much I enjoy reading your town snapshots and indepth reviews.   Keep up the good work!

I have been receiving your emails daily for the last few months after signing up and enjoy them very much.   Just want to make sure I continue to get them because they have been very helpful in searching for retirement communities and information. 

Just love your weekly newsletters and reviews.

Thanks so much!  I continue as a great fan of your wonderful newsletter.

Thank you for your great reviews. I have been reading them for years. The ones for towns where I have lived are always spot-on, so I know I can rely on your evaluation of new places.

I don't plan on moving anymore, but I keep reading because I love your reviews and use them to plan vacations.

You are doing a great job.

Your website is really very helpful.

Hi! We found and purchased our retirement home in Ramona, Ca in San Diego County. The air is good.  The people are nice. Major shopping is 20 minutes away. Plenty of brand name grocery stores.  We love it! Thanks for your help!

I wanted to thank you for your e-mails of the recommended places for retirement. You are doing and incredible service to all of us at no cost.  If it wasn't for signing up for this e-mail I probably never would have known about all these great places to retire.  I hope people acknowledge you for what you are doing.

Have thoroughly enjoyed your efforts over the past few months ... what a joy to contemplate living all around the world through the eyes of you and your staff.  I have contacted several communities because of you.  Thanks!   Your research and insight are appreciated.   Have a great 2010!

I just want to tell you how much I enjoy "great retirement spots."   I  retired a few years ago and have the great freedom of choosing where I want  to live. You have helped me eliminate some of the spots I was interested in by the weather updates and tax info (these are tops on my checklist). So I  just want to thank you.

You guys are great! Thank you.

I really enjoy reading your reviews.

What a great site you have!   Thanks so much.

I really look forward to your emails especially the in-depth reviews with the little videos, some of which are really, really good.

Thank you for your very interesting newsletters.    Would you consider doing a review of Flagstaff, Arizona? I would like to know your opinion of this city.

I love your newsletters!

Great website!  Read it almost daily.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks very much, and keep up the great work!

Thanks for a very useful and well-done site.

I received your comprehensive profile of Port St. Lucie, Florida.  Truly a masterpiece of invaluable information for which your
service deserves commendation.  

I want to thank you so much for continuing to send me the great newsletter.  I look forward to them each day.

Just want to congratulate you on the fine job you do, and your reports on retirement communities are VERY well written.....we
enjoy getting them and are anxiously looking for the one for us.....keep up the good work.

Your postings are such a service to me and I am sure to others looking for "Eden."

Thank you so very much for reviewing Carson City and Reno, NV. The in-depth on Carson City was really enlightening and possibly a potential retirement town for me.   So kind of you to send me these reviews.   Have a great weekend and thanks for all of your very interesting work. I'm always amazed at the insights you provide. 

I enjoy the e-mails about the retirement spots and look forward to seeing them every day!

Love your insights into so many locations to consider.   Thank you, again, for your emails and for your time.

Your newsletter is the only one I read for retirement areas.

Recently I have become your biggest fan! I honestly believe you(r) detail oriented reviews of retirement areas will help us find that place, the one where we will build one more house!

Enjoy your website!

I read your every post.

Thanks for all your great work... love your site!

How would I access back issues?  Could you archive these and then add a search feature? Thanks!

I enjoy your newsletter very much, and find it quite helpful.

We subscribe and your information is wonderful! 

I recently found your website and I really love it.

I've been subscribing to your regular retirement spots site for years.  I think it is great.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much for the report on Ithaca, NY.  I've been there several times and I think you got it just right.  I learned some things about services for senior citizens, tax breaks, etc. that I didn't know.   Good job and thanks again.

I really like your retirement guide email - I have read many other sources but find you are the most accurate and I like the way you tell the pros and cons - so many sources do not mention cons.

Love your site!

Thank you for all you do.

I really appreciate what you do.

Nicely done.

I do enjoy your reviews and find them extremely useful and thorough.

Please send back issues.  Love your publication and hate to miss any issues!

5 years ago we were considering retirement in NC and your description of New Bern encouraged us to visit there. We have since moved there and absolutely love it!

We find your reviews and articles extremely informative, keep up the good work!  Thank you.

Very professional and impressive.

I look forward to receiving your reports on retirement venues since I am in the retirement planning process. Your reviews are comprehensive and cover just about everything I have on my list of criteria.  

Just read your excellent article about Colonia, Uruguay.  Keep up the good work.

Thank you for a wonderful service.

Thanks for the great site. Read it regularly.

Thank you for giving the overall political orientation of the communities that you cover. It really helps me consider retirement locations. Also, I live in California and think your descriptions of California towns have been spot-on.

I really appreciate the information you research on possible retirement areas.

Keep up the good work.

Kudos!  Well done.

You have always been helpful in giving great information.

I've been reading your newsletter for quite awhile now. In fact, I look forward to its arrival every week so I can explore a new possibility for retirement. You've greatly stirred my imagination about my available options.

Are you on vacation?  I missed two issues and want to ensure that I am still on your mailing list!

I wanted to let you know that I have not received your emails since July l and I miss them.  It really is  a very worthwhile service that you offer.

I really enjoy reading your reviews. I have a ways to go before I retire, but I love to dream. I especially like it when the town has a little video to watch. I tell lots of people about your site. Could you review Fort Peirce, FL? Thanks, and keep up the great work!!

Your write up of Lamar, Missouri was excellent.

I have heartily enjoyed (and visited) some of your spotlighted communities for several years now.

I just LOVE your emails with info about places of all sizes all over the country!  Thanks again!

Las Cruces, NM has been mentioned as a good retirement site from different organizations (AARP, Money Magazine and Sunset Magazine).    I read their reports, but  have found that your reports in other cities are quite accurate and think that your opinion would be very advantageous to me and to others.  Will you review it?

I would like to thank you and wish you a Happy New Year for all you do.

Please review Cooperstown, NY. Your profiles are great!

You have an excellent service!

I do enjoy your emails very much.  You do a great job!

I am a new subscriber and am enjoying reading

Love your reviews, we always check them out, appreciate the honesty.

Keep up the good work.  You people are great. I love reading about the different parts of the country and the article on Galena IL hit home.

I have been a dedicated follower of your newsletter for about 5 years now. I finally retired last year and am now traveling around the country in a little rv, in search of my own ideal spot. I have been using your newsletter and guide to past town reviews as a help in my travel destinations through the states. Thanks for all your research. Keep up the good work!

I think the weekly reviews are wonderful.  A friend, newly relocated to Reno, told me about your site, and because I really, sincerely
look forward to the weekly message, I have told friends and family about Great Retirement Spots, too.  

You offer a fine service in your weekly reviews.  Thank you.

I so appreciate your retirement spots newsletter.

I like that your reviews are honest and cover the good and the bad.  Very good.

Do you have a "top 50 list" or something similar, either in total or by region?  We enjoy your newsletters and website.  Thank you so much, as it gives it
excitement for the future.

I have been reading your website for over 6 months and enjoy it a lot.


Great Real Estate Abroad is a marvelous addition to your already marvelous website.  Many thanks!

Hi!  Love your site -- please keep newsletters coming.

Look forward to each new issue. Wife and I are wrestling with when and where to retire, so your information is very helpful.

I am enjoying reading your group's articles very much.

Thank you very much for your excellent article on Green Valley, AZ.   I've always wondered about it as a retirement option - and now I know!   Just want you to know how greatly your research is appreciated.

I am unsubscribing from your newsletter as I have just purchased a home, thanks to your information.  Keep up the good work!

Keep your e-mails coming, you are very informative and I enjoy your site. You have a GREAT WEBSITE.

Great work!  Keep it up.

I've been wanting to let you know how much I've enjoyed your reviews over the last few years. I "think" I might have been following them for almost as long as you've been writing them. They have prompted us in the past few years to take a peek at a few. Right now we are in Florence, Oregon and have been for three weeks. Your description is spot on. The main reason for contacting you is to compliment the person who puts the reviews "on paper" with accurate and interesting descriptions; very enjoyable reading.

I'm a big fan of your newsletter!

My husband and I love your website!

You do a great job.  Do you cover communities in Costa Rica, Mexico, etc. the same way you do US areas?  If so, how do I sign up for that weekly newsletter?

I do enjoy your site, and examining your highlighted communities.

I am new to Great Retirement Spots and find it a very good website.  I am reading with interest about a number of locations that I hadn't even considered.  Thank you for that!

Thanks for your newsletter.  This is my first issue and I like the quality of the information and its presentation.
