Throughout the month of November, the team at Rodrock Development took the opportunity to take stock of all for which they are grateful. Then, they extended an invitation to the Darol Rodrock Foundation, Rodrock & Associates Realtors, and co-op agents to weigh in on just what they’re thankful for during this thanksgiving season, as well.
Still, the picture remains incomplete. So they turned to some of the people to which they’re most indebted — the residents of Rodrock Development communities — to wrap up their season of thankfulness.
Jeannie Machon and her family moved into the Greens of Chapel Creek last December. And as it turns out, it was a holiday gift the whole family adored.
“We’ve loved living in a Rodrock neighborhood,” Machon said. “We’ve participated in several neighborhood activities this past year, including a pool party, pig roast and adults’ night out, just to name a few. We’re looking forward to the hayride coming up in December. The pool was fantastic this past summer — well maintained and clean. This community is wonderful, and we’re thankful to have the opportunity to live here.”
The Bohnsack family likewise appreciates the sense of community they discovered in Grey Oaks.
“Halloween in this neighborhood was amazing — a real family friendly party atmosphere,” said Stacie Bohnsack. “It’s been fun being part of the Moms’ Council, and my family loves the pool, the walking trail and the playgrounds.”
Keri Janda and her family also call Grey Oaks home, and there’s no shortage of things they value about the community.
“We love the connectedness and the feeling of belonging to a tight-knit community that comes with living in a Rodrock community,” Janda said. “We love our neighbors, and it seems everyone is always looking out for all the kids in the neighborhood. We are within walking distance to the elementary school, middle school and high school, which I call a triple bonus. We feel safe in our neighborhood and we love the walking trail, park and pool.”
That connectedness, the true sense of community, is a characteristic that homeowner after homeowner mentions when they share the things they love about living in a Rodrock Development community. In fact, it remains Aubree Barbosa’s favorite part of calling Grayson Place home.
“It’s absolutely the thing I’m most grateful for in living in a Rodrock neighborhood,” Barbosa said. “I think the Rodrock mentality really fosters that overall feeling of being a true community together. From the wonderful schools, to the Moms’ Council, it all really brings that picture-perfect community image to life. The neighbors are always willing to help each other out and truly enjoy spending time together as friends. This also brings a feeling of safety to the community, since everyone knows each other and is looking out for one another. There is no better environment to raise a family in, and we are so happy we chose a Rodrock community for our growing family.”
“We’ve been truly blessed in Stonebridge Park with some wonderful, caring neighbors,” seconded Tammy Rock. “We have gathered for picnics and just sitting by a fire at the end of our cul-de-sac to visit. When a young neighbor passed suddenly, it was very uplifting to see how everyone rallied for that family. It was a true testament to how lucky we were to land in this subdivision.”
But there are plenty of other things that the Rock family appreciates in Stonebridge Park, including the neighborhood pool, which the family made great use of this last summer.
“And the fitness center that serves all of the Stonebridge subdivisions is just top notch,” Rock said. “We are very fortunate to have access to that. And finally, our backyard is just lovely. We back up to horses in a pasture and a large tree line. We have privacy and a wonderful view. Much like the feeling of a ‘little country’ sitting near the city and all the wonderful shopping and restaurants that come with Kansas City life.”
“A great sense of community, builders of the highest quality, and my guests are always impressed by the quality of finishes and the attention to detail in my home,” said Liz Taylor, who lives in the Cottages of Woodridge. “The Rodrock Team is always available to listen to suggestions or concerns. And, Mr. Rodrock is a very kind and giving person. I’m proud to be associated with him. He’s relentless in his caring about foster teens through his Foundation. There’s so much to be grateful for — and proud of — when living in a Rodrock Development.”
