Earlier this year, elegant model residences and a mouthwatering brunch greeted about 100 Tallgrass Creek visitors interested in a one-day promotion offered by the community’s sales team. Resident ambassadors were on hand to conduct tours, giving visitors an up-close look at the vibrant, Overland Park, Kans., community, and to answer all questions about life at Tallgrass Creek. 

“We have only a handful of apartments available, so we’re encouraging priority list members and other interested people to make decisions while their preferred residence is still available,” says Blake Marshall. “The time is especially right with another Kansas winter right around the corner.” 

Tours and tastings

After touring residences, guests enjoyed a light brunch of mushroom, spinach, and bacon quiche; butter-cream bars; chocolate-swirled cake; chocolate mousse and raspberry princess bars; fresh fruit and tossed salads; and citrus spritzers. 

Visitors also received information about Erickson Realty and Moving Services, the community’s complimentary coordination of all realty and moving needs, including downsizing, home staging, packing, and selection of real estate professionals.

Guests are always interested in Tallgrass Creek’s priority list, which is comprised of people who plan to move to an Erickson Living community. All it takes is a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and a $150-per-person, nonrefundable application fee.

When prospective residents submit their deposit, that date is noted as their priority list date. Once their preferred floor plan becomes available, the sales team gives first right of refusal to priority list members based on their joining date.

The recent open house and brunch are one of many social events Tallgrass Creek’s sales team hosts throughout the year. All include creative food, tours of spacious apartments, and “getting-to-know-the community” good times. 

Resident ambassador Jim Graham is usually on hand to meet and greet Tallgrass Creek guests.

“I sometimes see familiar faces among the visitors, and it’s a pleasure explaining what a good place this is to live,” says Jim. “It has been a great decision for us.”
