People often wonder: Do prospective homebuyers actually discover their dream home during a Parade event?
When it comes to Rodrock Homes, the answer is a resounding yes—the Parade showcases Rodrock’s variety of spectacular new homes in the area’s most desirable neighborhoods, all across the spectrum of price and style. Design and décor lovers can see firsthand trends in finishes, products, features and colors.
Many house hunters, like Joleen and Greg VerMulm, simply fall in love with a model’s floor plan, a particular community or a ready-now home and make the decision to purchase.
Searching for backyard privacy and scenery, the empty nesters concentrated on finding a treed home site or a neighborhood with a substantial water feature. Initially looking for acreage, the VerMulm’s realized after looking at new home communities that the combination of privacy, less yard to maintain and homeowner’s association amenities was attractive.
“We visited many homes during the 2018 Spring Parade, including a reverse 1.5-story Rodrock Dillon floor plan and liked the layout and finish details,” said Greg VerMulm. “Our real estate agent and others had positive feedback about Rodrock, so we checked out another Dillon at Ridgestone Meadows and reserved a wooded, walkout home site on a cul-de-sac.”
Impressed with Rodrock’s organized approach to the build process, the VerMulm’s liked the attentive team that guided them through the experience, including project manager Karen Long, who meticulously monitored the home’s progress, and interior designer Kristen Ridler who quickly understood the couple’s aesthetic.
Tour 16 homes, 15 unique floor plans in nine premier communities. Hundreds of eager, prospective homebuyers have viewed Rodrock’s dazzling collection of homes, with prices ranging from the mid-$300s to more than $1 million. Included in Rodrock’s curated tour offerings is the much-anticipated debut Mission Ranch’s six breathtaking, professionally decorated models.
“People appreciate the gorgeous décor, effortless style and thoughtfully conceived spaces that are super functional,” said Rodrock and Associates Realtors agent and Mission Ranch community manager Andrea Sullivan. “It’s easy to imagine living in this up-and-coming Johnson County neighborhood, situated in the acclaimed Blue Valley School District.”
Distinctive, award-winning homes on parade. Nine fresh, inviting and inspiring Rodrock homes were recognized at Wednesday’s Home Builder’s Association ceremony, including Mission Ranch-Fox Ridge Hailey (Silver, Pick of Parade), Saratoga (Gold, Pick of Parade) and Longmont (2nd, Silver, Distinctive Plan/Design, Pick of Parade) and Mission Ranch-Saddle Creek Rawlings (1st, Distinctive Plan/Design, Pick of Parade) and Aspen II (2nd, Distinctive Plan/Design, Silver, Pick of Parade).
