Convenience and Personality
Rodrock Homes and Bickimer Homes are synonymous with a legacy of building outstanding family residences with integrity. Cues are taken from homeowners passionate about home design features and the communities in which they raise children and create lifetime memories.
“We’re close to I-435, K-7, and K-10 highways, and a short commute to the airport and most city attractions, such as Sprint Center and the Country Club Plaza,” says community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent Rob Lacio. “Plus, the Legends Outlets, Sporting Park, and Kansas Speedway are nearby, offering terrific dining, entertainment, and world-class sporting events.”
Hills of Forest Creek beckons with a unique amenity: In-community access to Clear Creek Trail, which links homeowners directly to one of the city’s longest and most scenic trails, the 17-mile Mill Creek Streamway Trail. Walkers, joggers, bikers, hikers, and even equestrian lovers enjoy the great outdoors nearly year-round on this unusual expanse of nature in the city.
“People often purchase here because they want to send their children through school, without moving,” says Lacio. “They also like the fact that there are plenty of other kids in the neighborhood.” He notes the atmosphere in a Rodrock neighborhood is an invisible but very real amenity.
“Not only do our floor plans offer something for everyone, each community has a genuine neighborly feel—neighbors become friends for life,” he says. “You can’t put a price tag on that.”
