About Us

Comfort. Security. A place to call home.

Enjoy a tranquil setting, and yet be only minutes from historic downtown Lakeville. The choice is yours, the Johnson Companies offers affordable and well-maintained apartments in four locations. Each apartment building offers spacious floor plans, a convenient location, and the quiet enjoyment of neighborhood living.

You are able to choose from one, two, and three bedroom floor plans – whichever suits your lifestyle. Providing a light, airy feeling, each floor plan contains an abundance of windows decorated with mini-blinds. The unit floor plans also allow you flexible and creative furniture placement.

Attractive building exteriors enhance Johnson Companies apartments. Our buildings blend beautifully with the natural surroundings. You’ll find spacious, well-maintained apartments with neutral interior tones, quality carpeting, and spacious closets. Being that you’ll only need to cover the cost of electricity, utility bills are kept to a minimum. (This statement may need to be changed.)

The kitchens in our apartments are designed for your working ease. They feature newer appliances, including frost free refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers and disposals. Your comfort is our number one priority.

Our family friendly, convenient, and welcoming apartments are all located within a community you can be proud to call home.
