Value, Integrity, Craftsmanship. Each Rodrock Homes community showcases solid craftsmanship, a signature synonymous with one of the area’s best-known custom builders. Gleason Glen personifies that homegrown philosophy of putting people first and creating homes with lasting value.
Versatility abounds in Gleason Glen, with floor plans focusing on informal open spaces perfect for entertaining; well-appointed gourmet kitchens; and spacious, resort-style master suites.
“We have young families and empty-nesters living here,” Zimmerman said. “All are attracted to Gleason Glen’s trendsetting designs, neighborhood and beautiful home sites.”
Charming, Vibrant, Convenient. Gleason Glen residents enjoy stunning, unobstructed sunsets over sweeping vistas, an ample community pool, plenty of green space for impromptu football games and a treed park in the community’s center hearkens back to a different time.
“Gleason Glen isn’t a mega community that generates traffic congestion,” said ReeceNichols agent and Gleason Glen community manager Anna Stasi. “It has a country flavor, yet the benefits of quick access to major thoroughfares for city or airport commutes or shopping, dining and entertainment options.”
Located in the De Soto Unified School District, which was recently ranked as number two of the top 10 high-performing school districts in the Kansas City metro by The Kansas City Business Journal, Gleason Glen is a short three-minute drive to Mize Elementary School and Mill Creek Middle School.
“Combine affordable pricing, Rodrock’s design standards, community features and proximity to excellent schools and shopping, restaurants and entertainment, and you have a hidden jewel,” Zimmerman said.
No Better Time to Buy. As the winter months wane, Zimmerman and Stasi are working with homeowners anxious to make a change in a market amenable to buyers. Zimmerman notes late winter is an optimal time to make a real estate decision.
“Consider buying a new home before the spring rush,” she said. “Especially in a community such as Gleason Glen, with popular floor plans and a hard-to-beat neighborhood atmosphere, the demand will rise along with spring’s temperatures. Imagine being here in time for the kids to play outside in the park.”
Gleason Glen’s floor plans include the in-demand reverse 11/2-story.
“And of course, we have many other designs — something for everyone,” Stasi said.
Rodrock currently offers 50 percent off the price per square foot on lower level finishing in existing Gleason Glen spec homes and models.
“A buyer can finish approximately 800 square feet in a lower level, including a bedroom/exercise room, bathroom with shower and recreation room,” Stasi explained. “This helps boost the investment.”
Rodrock Ready and More. Gleason Glen has the best selection of home sites, including daylight and walkout, with a variety of inventory to elevate every lifestyle.
“There are Rodrock Ready homes available for move-in and others currently in production, with availability from 30 to 45 days,” Zimmerman said.
Depending on the stage of finish, a Rodrock Ready home allows a buyer to personalize selections such as granite, tile, carpet, light fixtures, paint, and hardwood floor and cabinet stains.

The signature Rodrock Experience, which comes with every purchase, means you have access to the Rodrock Design Studio and a professional interior designer to help streamline choices to customize your home — a priceless one-stop shop.
