Our relationship with ROCK is a significant partnership. We consider Kevin Hodge a key member of our real estate team. He has been involved in the land acquisition, due diligence, entitlement and eventual sale of every significant transaction we have done in York County for many years. We couldn’t ask for anything more.

Very well managed and they took the time to EDUCATE me on the transactions.

David Bode was very professional, organized and reassuring to us as sellers. Even though our property was not a high-end piece of real estate, we were given as much time and attention as someone selling a huge commercial building. We felt at all times that everything would be handled efficiently and appropriately.

Two generations of our family have had the pleasure working with these absolute professionals. For many years, ROCK has lived up to a heart-felt ethic of putting their clients’ interests first. They employ a team approach, their communication and care has been consistently excellent, and I can say without any reservation, my family has been blessed to work with them. We rely on them and they have never let us down.

I wouldn’t be in the commercial rental business if it weren’t for the services provided by ROCK Commercial and, specifically, Kevin Hodge. I appreciate the friendship that Kevin and I have developed and respect the experience and advice that he provides.

I cannot say enough about my positive experience working with David Bode. I chose him because he seemed more aggressive and knowledgeable, and my first impression was confirmed many times along the way. He was always available, his experience was evident, and his advice was spot on. I would highly recommend him.
