Associate's Spotlight: KB Homes
Sixty-one years is a long time to be in the home-building business. That kind of longevity is the result of KB Home’s approach to its customers. They keep the home-building process simple. They make it a personal experience for the buyer and, they keep the goal of customer satisfaction a top priority every step of the way.
KB Home is one of the largest homebuilders in the United States, with more than 600,000 homes delivered since its founding in 1957, and currently operates in 25 communities in San Antonio and surrounding areas including Boerne, Cibolo, New Braunfels, Converse, and Universal City. KB Home has been building in the San Antonio area since 1996 and has plans to continue expansion into new communities in 2019.
What differentiates KB Home from others is the focus on offering customers the ability to personalize what they would value most in their home, from choosing their lot, floor plan and exterior, to selecting design and décor choices in the KB Home Design Studio, located at 4800 Fredericksburg Road.
REALTORS® appreciate KB Home as they know their clients will be working together with experienced, professional design consultants, so they can bring their design vision to life by selecting the fixtures and features for their home that will match their style and personality. The KB Home Design Studio, which is open seven days a week, is a retail-like showroom where buyers can select from a plethora of design choices including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances, and window coverings. And here’s a hint, you don’t have to be a homebuyer to visit.
“Our beautiful Design Studio and the model home parks in our active communities give your buyers a taste of what is possible when purchasing a new KB home,” said Rob Wasyliw, president of KB Home’s San Antonio division. “Single professionals, growing families, and active adults are delighted to find that we are as passionate as they are to give them a home that’s built for the way they live.”
Once your buyers have completed their design selections, it is time for the construction of their unique home to begin. Construction of a new home can be very exciting. KB Home arranges several walkthroughs with your clients and their experienced on-site construction superintendent and promises to keep you and your client informed of major milestones in the process. KB Home’s goal is to give you and your client the opportunity to follow along as their dream home vision comes to life.
KB Home hopes your buyers appreciate the energy efficiency that’s designed into their homes. Not only does a KB Home save your buyer money on bills, but it also conserves valued resources.
KB Home is recognized for its leadership in the sustainability movement benefiting its buyers by lowering the cost of home ownership as compared to a typical resale home. Sustainability practices encompass energy efficiency, water conservation, healthier indoor environments, smart home capabilities, and waste reduction. These energy and water-saving features are estimated to save homebuyers between $1,296 and $2,076 a year in utility costs, depending on the floorplan.
KB Home is the first national builder to have earned awards under all of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) homebuilder programs—ENERGY STAR®, WaterSense®, and Indoor airPLUS®. And, once your client has settled into a KB home that is uniquely theirs, there is a 10-year Limited Warranty and a 24/7, local Customer Service department available to them that they won’t find in an older home.
