Rockhill Gardens is one of my favorite subdivisions in the Brookside/Waldo area of Kansas City.  The homes were built with so much 1930s character and detail...brick, stone and stucco exteriors; peaked roofs; crown molding; flat lots and wide streets.  Buyers can get a lot of house for the money ...

 Here we go, Brookside neighbors….a recap of 2015 home sales for our area.  The good news is home values are way up.  The bad news...not much inventory for buyers to choose from!
