The community manager of Rausch Coleman Homes’ newest Johnson County community, Whitetail in Olathe, urges buyers to visit the community.

Whitetail offers a private, rustic setting without sacrificing all the modernity and convenience southern Johnson County has to offer. For those who need the convenience of being “near it all” while at the same time enjoying the privacy of being “away from it all,” Whitetail is worth a visit.
Community manager Justin Driggs said homes have already sold in the first phase, which offers 35 home sites. Three brand new inventory homes are ready for a new owner.
Whitetail offers five ranch floor plans and one split-level plan ranging from 1,400 to 1,900 square feet with three to four bedrooms, two- or three-car garages with full, daylight or walk-out basements.
The homes are priced from the low $200,000s to the $250,000s. New, larger plans are coming within the next couple of months featuring two-story, 11/2-story and reverse plans up to 2,500 square feet.
Driggs said all of Whitetail’s oversized home sites allow for three-car garages and include daylight and walkout options on Whitetail’s gently rolling terrain.
Rausch Coleman also specializes in new-home construction to fit many budgets. A new home is constructed in 120 days or less, weather permitting, with all the accoutrements the buyer chooses to add.
All of this comes with the knowledge of owning a home built by one of the largest family-owned construction companies in the United States with almost six decades of new ranch home construction.
Whitetail is in a serene setting in western Olathe, just west of Lake Olathe and across from Prairie Highland Golf Course, a highly rated public course. Lake Olathe offers 172 acres with fishing as well as playgrounds and other park activities.
Whitetail is a few minutes from the seclusion and beauty of Lakes Olathe and Lenexa while allowing an incomparable ease of access to highways Kansas 7, Kansas 10, Interstate 35 and Interstate 435.
Olathe is the second largest city in Johnson County with numerous shopping, dining and employment options.
Whitetail is in the top-rated Olathe School District, recognized statewide. Students attend Clearwater Creek Elementary, Oregon Trail Middle and Olathe North High schools.
Rausch Coleman Homes, a family-owned and operated business, has been building homes for 59 years with the mission of “improving lives, one home at a time.” The commitment to its mission has enabled the company to be ranked 34th of the nation’s Top 100 Builders by Builders Magazine.
Rausch Coleman Homes, run by founder Buddy Coleman and grandson John Rausch, started building in Arkansas. The company’s early success led to its expansion into numerous cities in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
The company’s philosophy is to make each meticulously constructed home affordable, offering the lowest price possible while including quality features such as concrete basements; a 10-year waterproofing foundation warranty; a water-barrier house-wrap system; 30-year architectural shingles; brick, stone and stucco exterior features; engineered roof trusses; and double-pane, low-E vinyl windows, Driggs said.
Rausch Coleman Homes allows the new homeowner, when building, to decide which features they want in their home. The company offers base pricing with base interior features that allow buyers to price their home with the features that are important to them. Design choices can include hardwood flooring, granite counter tops, maple cabinetry, iron stair spindles, ceramic tiles, gas fireplace, finished basement, three-car garages and more.
“Rausch Coleman’s prices are competitive in the Kansas City market, even after customizing the home to a buyer’s liking,” Driggs said.
Rausch Coleman is the only Kansas City area builder to offer a limited lifetime warranty that covers the roof system, foundation wall system and structural load-bearing walls of the home. The company manages all warranty work for the homeowner.
“Rausch Coleman builds houses that you’ll call home,” Driggs said.
