Falling leaves and turning colors also mean the beginning of the Fall Parade of Homes, a perfect time to shop for a new home in a vibrant community or discover the latest in home design trends.
Experience homecoming by touring Rodrock Homes’ model rows in award-winning Johnson County communities. The welcome mat is out, from Gleason Glen and Hills of Forest Creek in Lenexa and Shawnee to The Crossings at South Glen in Olathe to Overland Park’s Summerwood and Wyngate, and more.
This year’s Fall Parade of Homes showcases an abundance of beautifully appointed models from Rodrock Homes located in the area’s most desirable settings, including the Blue Valley and DeSoto school districts. With a reputation for building outstanding homes in family-friendly, neighborly environments, Rodrock Homes is at the top of many savvy Parade-goers’ must-see lists.
Best of all, Rodrock has done its homework, ensuring a plentiful inventory of designer-decorated models ready to view, with up-to-date features for enhancing family living and entertaining.
Never miss a local story.
Here’s a snapshot of what Rodrock Homes has in store during the Fall Parade of Homes.
Community Spirit. Rodrock Homes is synonymous with a legacy of building quality family homes with integrity. Cues are taken from homeowners passionate not only about the features and design of their homes, but also about the communities in which they raise children and make lifetime memories.
That passion for the perfect location drives Rodrock Homes to create communities of distinction — where schools are nearby, private play areas are accessible and amenities are geared to family living.
ReeceNichols real estate agent Kerwin Holloway, a marketing agent for Wyngate in Overland Park, said each Rodrock Homes’ community has a distinctive personality.
“There are many things that make living in a Rodrock Homes community, such as Wyngate or Summerwood, so special,” he said. “For example, Wyngate is the only Blue Valley community adjacent to a grade, middle and high school. I’ve had homeowners purchase here because they want to send all of their children through school, without moving.”
Holloway notes the sense of community found in a Rodrock neighborhood is an invisible but very real amenity.
“Not only does our vast inventory of models have something for everyone, each community has a genuine neighborly feel,” he said. “You can’t put a price tag on that.”
Style Meets Function. Rodrock Homes’ Fall Parade of Homes models are a well-curated collection of sparkling, trendsetting designs with an emphasis on turnkey living and up-to-date features.
Designers well-versed in the latest design elements, such as textured wallpaper, basket-weave tile, maple and walnut wood flooring, natural stone fireplaces and energy-efficient appliances, meticulously furnish each model.
Each home is built with a craftsman’s attention to detail, and tour-goers can explore a variety of designs ranging from traditional to contemporary and transitional to rustic and eclectic. In addition, the wide variety of price points, floor plans and communities help streamline the home-buying process.
“People looking for a new home are busy, juggling family, careers and leisure activities,” said Holloway. “They appreciate that Rodrock simplifies shopping by providing quality options that complement their lifestyle.”
With prices ranging from $319,500 to more than $1 million, chances are Rodrock has your desired style and view. Choose from homes overlooking water to secluded homes nestled amongst mature trees to homes situated along walking trails. And if you’re in the market for a top-to-bottom custom home, consider the Rodrock Custom Design Experience program, with complementary design services available.
