Time to Buy. When Sarah Carey moved into her new home in the Hills of Forest Creek last October, she knew it was exactly what her family needed for the next chapter of their demanding lives.
“The four kids and I settled in pretty quickly,” said Carey. “It is a home with heart and soul.”
Carey chose the Rodrock Homes’ community for several reasons, including the location and school district, which fulfilled her requirements.
“Forest Creek has exceeded my expectations,” said Carey.
Located between Johnson Drive and Shawnee Mission Parkway, just west of Woodland Road in the DeSoto School District, Hills of Forest Creek is located in one of the area’s premier suburbs. Dorothy Mask, a ReeceNichols real estate agent and marketing agent for Forest Creek, notes the strong sense of community among the residents.
“Any time of the year, you will find residents out walking dogs, biking, running, and gathering at each other’s home,” said Mask. “In fact, a recent buyer has five groups of friends who currently live in the Hills of Forest Creek and are celebrating the addition of a sixth friend to the community.”
Buyers have the advantage of choosing from nine different floor plans with level, daylight and walkout sites available at Hills of Forest Creek, including homes just a month away from completion.
“A buyer can still customize their home — some backing up to the community’s green space — with selections such as granite, lighting, plumbing fixtures, tile and carpet,” said Mask. “And we have a promotion for basement finish on existing homes, which ends soon.”
Buyers wanting to choose a home site may bring approved outside builders to complete their dream home, a rare benefit in a community like Hills of Forest Creek.
Mask points out homeowners are also drawn to the community by its extraordinary location.
“Not only is this community conveniently located close to major highways, but at the end of the day, you feel like you are coming home to your private retreat,” said Mask. “Residents here enjoy a quality of life that indeed fulfills their wish list for both home and location.”
Hills of Forest Creek home prices begin in the mid-$300,000s, offering buyers the opportunity for affordable and genteel living.
Top-Notch Community, Convenience, Value. Many buyers are discovering the beauty of the Westside in Rodrock communities like Gleason Glen, which exemplifies the company’s philosophy of creating dream homes with lasting value.
Located in the award-winning DeSoto School District, just off Kansas 7 Highway, Gleason Glen offers homes in a secluded area with convenient access to some of Kansas City’s most vibrant dining, shopping and entertainment, including the Legends Outlet Mall and world-class Kansas Speedway.
One of Gleason Glen’s highlights is its familiar, comfortable ambiance.
“This community feels like something you grew up in,” said Anna Stasi, a ReeceNichols real estate agent and marketing agent for Gleason Glen. “And the well executed home designs appeal to families desiring an environment to complement busy lifestyles.”
Versatility abounds in Gleason Glen, with eight floor plans that focus on informal open spaces for entertaining, gourmet kitchens and spacious master suites, all situated on sites offering striking views of the western suburbs’ lush environs.
One of Gleason Glen’s community amenities includes a city park where families and children gather for leisure and recreation.
“Another point of difference is that our prices begin in the $300,000s,” said Stasi. “The combination of sophisticated home designs combined with the proximity to shopping, dining and entertainment and the DeSoto School District make Gleason Glen a wonderful place to come home to.”
Gleason Glen’s much-requested Dillon plan, a reverse 11/2-story home, is now under construction, with new home sites coming soon.
