As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what was involved what was in store or what to expect. The people at KB Homes were very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. From sales to delivery, they made the home buying experience extremely pleasant. They were always available to answer any questions we had. It was very clear to me that their main focus is customer satisfaction. We could not be happier with our new home and our choice to go with KB Homes as our builder.
KB Homes was great. From the beginning, you can choose the layout, the land, the options/style of your home and then carefully walk through all the options for the inside (the fun part). they are patient and listen to your wants and needs. They do not rush you through the process, they truly make sure you are happy with the home before you close on the house. This is important because if you are building, you want a builder who cares about your home as much as they would for their own. Other companies built a home but did not allow for any changes.
KB Homes allow you to choose pretty much everything about your home from the look to the colors, to the floors, cabinets, hardware, etc. Everything you would want or not want is pretty much on the table making it a dream home you always wanted. They also accommodate those who live out of state. Not being able to come and see the progress was stressful but KBhomes ensured they communicated every step so I could feel like I was here and know what was happening on our home.

Great experience buying a KB Home! The first day, I toured the models home and the ones that were ready to move in. I fell in love with a home on Adora Terrace. It was a dream come true. The best part was being close to the parents, 2 min drive from the new home. My agent Peggy ** with First Team Real Estate was able to get us a smoking deal, price reduction and solar included. She helped us buy our first home in Corona CA in 2014 and now Riverside CA 2023. We were so ecstatic about this.
Karen ** helped us with the process and submitted our offer. We were anxiously waiting for the offer to be accepted. We heard the great news about 2 days later. So happy! Karen was so wonderful to work with through the entire process. She made it super easy for us and was so pleasant to work with. After closing, Justin and Ramon were super helpful in addressing our concerns. There were only minor things that needed to be fixed but they took care of it within 24 hours. So as you can see the entire experience was amazing. I would recommend buying with KB Home to family and friends with no hesitation. We love our new home!

Mortgage is the best on the market even the stress amount that comes with buying new home, but I'm so thrilled with my interest rate. Jason was honest and helped me out a lot.. The warranty staff (Barry and his team) great service and they would do everything to help you. On the other hand, if KB monitored the home and check on the houses after every process during construction, they would not deal with a lot of issues. I can't believe lights in the ceiling are not measured rights.. They aren't aligned, showers install were not properly finished but the warranty staff helped to resolve that.
The granite and the quartz countertop material are not good. They used cracked counters and glued it, but they call that fissure (that's a big problem). I know the difference between what a fissure and what a crack is (someone trying to hide the mistake) and the finishes are not near good. I am sorry. You need to consider different installer for countertops. The kitchen design needs some improvement. When you use wall cabinets, at least use the fridge depth for consideration. Cabinets above the fridge should be deeper to make the flow in the kitchen better and make it more friendly user. I am sure there is more things to monitor but I know 100% that the staff at the warranty (Barry and his team) would get things done for me.

When we first saw KB Homes Maurice was the first person that we had interacted with. He took us to our house and we had no idea we were going to buy that house. He ended up helping us through the process of getting our loan started and also was a good helping hand along the way. Our lender was not the greatest Jose **. He was always asking us for documents that we had already given him once or twice. And he was losing them. However Wilfredo came into the picture and he helped the scenario. He was very intuitive and always checking up on us.
If it was not for him or Maurice I am pretty sure we would not have gone through with having KB homes. Maurice was the one who walked us through our house and also Wilfred the maintenance guy walked us through our home as well and he had us tape everything that was wrong. After we close on our house Alex was the one walked us through our home as well and he had us tape everything that was wrong. After we close on our house Alex was the one who came over and Made sure that everything was working. And if it was not working he was calling the people who needed to fix it. Alex has been a great person and has helped us ever since we bought our home.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Amber ** and Chase **. As investor buyers, this is our third transaction with them both in a second KB Home community, and we literally followed Amber and Chase to Montalado! They are the kindest, most professional and hardworking sales reps at KB Home. We did run into an encounter with our mortgage lender closing their division, which required a change in lender a few weeks before closing. Both Amber and Chase were extremely courteous and helpful in facilitating a new appraisal order, and took on a completely white glove approach to work with our new lender to get everything in place for closing. Despite closing later than expected, they kept everyone fully informed, including KB management, escrow and lender, and worked as a team to get this done.
We cannot thank Amber and Chase enough for their professionalism, but most importantly, the way they treated us as customers and their team work approach as well as a "can do" attitude. We will follow Amber and Chase at wherever they go next, and we're very grateful for having cultivated such a great working relationship with them both. They are truly the dream team, and more importantly, such a great reflection of KB Home's commitment to superior customer service that sets it apart from all the other builders here in the Valley.
This company has a habit of giving an inch when you need a mile. If you don’t have leverage (a complaint, attention from a supervisor, etc.) they will just ignore you. They flat out lie repeatedly and then act extremely nice when they know they don’t have the upper hand. Extremely manipulative company at every department. From the sales department, to the building department, and down to warranty I have been harassed, lied to, been manipulated, and treated as though I am uneducated.
The builder's incentive is all smoke and mirrors. They use points to adjust the loan one way or the other. If you use it for closing expect to pay a high-interest rate, if you use it for a buy down, it just gets you to the normal interest rate you can get with any lender. I accepted an offer from the lender, told my family we got a house and started looking at gyms, grocery stores and furniture. Got a call back a few hours later and was told they made a mistake. What was their offer to fix it? Nothing! I then accepted a second offer, not a great offer, but I wanted the house. They told me the next day that they made another mistake. What was their offer to fix it? Nothing!
Then I was told I had to take the offer they gave me or find a different lender to close the deal or they would keep my $3000 deposit. That did not go over well and I can at least say that I was able to get my deposit back. I wasted a month trying to buy a house, lost out on two other houses that I would have purchased if not this one. I also informed them that I am buying a house because my family is sick from toxic mold and we need to get out asap. They didn't care and actually told me that if I didn't want the house that they had plenty of buyers that do. Do not get excited about the incentives, do not rush to fill out the form for lending to get $500 bonus. The minute you use their lender and they get you financed you are locked in to take the loan or lose your deposit. I think as a buyer we should at least know how much the loan is going to cost before were locked in?
The sales staff were worse than the Alligators in the surrounding lakes. Insurance limits are set so high for Home Inspections that none carry those high limits making sure you will not get an inspection prior to sale. Other than that the people with warranty and construction have been golden.
Hi Mike, thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback about your experience with KB Home! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with our warranty and construction teams and we will pass along your comments to the team here at KB Home.
Sales and loan originator were wonderful, so it started beautifully. Construction and build communication the worst I have ever experienced. Local rep was useless. Had to get VP level to turn things around finally.
The beginning of this process was stressful with the lottery drawings every 2 weeks. I lived out of state, and it was difficult not being closer. I wasn't able to see the progress of the build. And waiting 15 months from the time I signed my contract to completion was agony. But in the end, it was all worth it. I am very happy.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Debra! We're thrilled to hear that you are happy with your results and we're honored to be your choice for the home buying process.
