I am beyond Blessed and grateful to have met my lovely friend Debbie ** here at Lake Lucerne. As a recommendation from my realtor Wendy **..I met Debbie on a face time call because our family purchased from NY and from that moment we connected. She was absolutely wonderful, so friendly, welcoming, warm, professional and knowledgeable. She accommodated us every step of the way. Without Debbie's dedication our dream to own a home wouldn't have been possible. She helped choose the perfect lot (respecting our specifications). Debbie helped us pick our favorite home model even when we didn't have the confidence to choose the home we truly loved. She connected us with Kiel who was absolutely amazing with our loan and helped us get the best rates with the least stress I can possibly imagine.

Debbie filled my phone with beautiful messages, pictures and videos on a weekly basis to keep us in the loop. We felt as if we were truly there watching our home come together. KB homes is lucky to have such a great team member, who will soon become like family. I recommend you to come take a look at this beautiful community and ask for Debbie to help you with this process...You'll need a genuine person who will be on your side and I can honestly say Debbie will exceed your expectations. I will also like to give kudos to Edwin who did a wonderful job with our home. Our family is beyond grate and we're happy to say we're the happy homeowners of a KB home!

    Please be more thorough in inspections and be sure you are delivering a safe home to families. Based on my experience I feel that the quality of work done is sub par and only saved by the customer service that I am receiving to remedy the issues. Some of my electrical was placed between the drywall and stud which should not have passed inspection. I am worried if there is anywhere else in the house where this mistake was made. I was trying to hang a picture when I drilled into wire that should not have been there. This caused a spark that also blew out my electricity in that part of the house. Had that been my wife or kids using a nail this could be a huge safety issue where I would have reached out to legal representation. To be honest I am still wary of the electrical in the home based on that experience and definitely makes me think twice about buying a KB home in the future or even referring a friend to KB.

    When the home was delivered we were missing a light fixture. We also had quite a few things that were not delivered to expectations. We had several light switches that were crooked. We had a chip in our marble tub. There were also issues where texture on the walls and ceilings were not done correctly. We also still need touch up on the house, a lot of marks and spots on walls and baseboards. A lot of cracked tiles on my roof. Overall I am happy with Customer Care and Gary. I understand that this relationship will last longer than I had hoped as I am finding things that are not up to my standard every week. As long as he continues to deliver what is needed to fix the issues we are happy but that being said Gary has saved how I view KB.

    When I was ready to purchase my first home I was a bit nervous about the process of building a new home. I took my time to go and see all the builders in the Manor TX area knowing I want my house built there. I went 3 other builders around the Manor area KB Home was my 4th builder to visit and once I came in to their model home and meet Cevero in sale office he welcome me in. I told him I was looking to purchase a home in the area so he handed me the key to their 4 model homes and said, "Go into all 4 and take your time look around and I will follow up with you in few minutes."

    It was something the other 3 builders had not done for me. Their sales person was always right next to me. Made me feel like they were pushing me and rushing me to purchase from them which I walked away from all 3. So that same very day I signed a contract with Cevero and now 5 months after I'm here enjoying my brand new very well built KB home. I really recommend any new homeowner to make KB homes their first stop and save your selfs time.

    We have heard many a nightmare stories from our friends and relatives about their home-buying experience. So we were skeptical about buying a new home, specially as we were very happy with our current rental property. But, boy, are we glad we walked into KB Homes' Primrose sales office with a friend who was looking to buy a new home!

    From the moment we walked in, the Sales Staff, Christine, completely won us over with her smiling face and positive energy. Even though we were just accompanying a friend, and not exactly there to buy, Christine spent couple of hours walking us through the home plans, available homes, the features, in short encouraging us to consider buying there, but never pushing us in a manner that will feel suffocating. I am very wary of sales persons who constantly push to make the sale, and make you feel bad if you say you are not interested. But not Christine, she answered our questions, showed us around, and gave us time to think it through.

    Vins, their mortgage loan originator, walked us through the loan process, worked with us to find us a loan program that worked best for us, and then the construction guy, Alex worked very hard to put my mind to ease by taking care of every little touch-ups we requested. When the refrigerator delivery guys chipped a corner of a wall, Alex took care of that as well. I cannot say enough good things about all of them. Thanks to them, we are now proud owner of our dream home.

    Original review: April 26, 2020

    It started in Gramercy Farms in Saint Cloud when I met Devon. He showed me that community and me and my wife fell in love. The reason why we didn’t choose that community was because it was priced way out of our budget. The mortgage was projected to be around $1800. Me and my wife were sad because we loved the layout of the KB home and thought it would be perfect for our family. But we were convinced that KB would just be a fantasy. So we continued our home search and it was a Monday that I decided to drive out to Mascotte and I met Tracey.

    I found the exact same house from my dream builder for a fraction of the cost. The same layout that I saw in Saint Cloud and the ability to use a USDA loan program – it was a match made in heaven. Tracey got us to sign the contract and it was the best decision we ever made. Working with KB was the best experience. From the design studio to the actual construction process KB was fantastic. I even referred one of my co workers and she is currently on contract. House will be built in the same community. KB did a great job we are so happy.

    KB Home made it easy to buy, design and finance our new home. The sales, construction and loan staff were all a pleasure to work with and kept us informed throughout the building process. It's not perfect, but the imperfections make it unique and overall we are happy with our new home.

    I have dealt with at least 2 other builders and have found KB Homes to be top notch at communication, up-front truthfulness, and reliability. The staff I worked with were knowledgeable, effective communicators, quick to respond to questions, and always willing to help resolve any issues. I will definitely be recommending KB Homes to anyone looking for a new home.

    My family always purchased KB homes with a great experience, but this home was a nightmare. it was a very stressful process. All promises made were never kept. it was delay after delay, in loan, or design studio even. There was always a surprise charge here and there thrown on at the end. I had to contact my loan officer or the design studio because they never got in touch. I felt like the KB we knew is gone. The contractors quality of work was terrible specifically plumbing. I only worry to find more issues.

    Original review: March 31, 2021

    The home buying process started off okay, then we weren't able to choose our style of home (elevation) like the other residents. In the 7 month building process, we went through three Superintendents as the first two are no longer with KB. I feel this affected the finishing touches of our home as the landscaping was mediocre (mulch filled with construction material- gloves, wires, plastic, nails) and a few items were outstanding when we got our keys (incorrect cabinet handles, light fixture missing, garage opener light missing, water flow to dishwasher not on).

    All of these items have been resolved now, but just having to follow up and schedule visits to correct the items during our first few weeks as new homeowners was an added hassle. Lastly, light fixtures in upstairs bathrooms are not centered to the sink and are closer to the walls. I opted to pay a little bit more for fixtures to avoid installation costs in the future, but I kind of regret it now since they aren't even centered and are connected to standard lights right above them!
