Great opportunity to hone marketing skills during a successful real estate cycle.

Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

ProsKB Home was my most exciting and hands-on marketing opportunity. There is plenty to keep you busy and lots of fun events to host and plan. You are given opportunity to manage a territory of new home model communities. You have the chance to create the events to market these communities to the general public and to real estate agents. You are involved with all aspects of the promotion and sales of new home. You are responsible for giving in-house real estate agents the tools necessary for making a sale. As marketing representative you maintain collateral, update websites and promote the communities through direct mail, billboard, tv, internet, magazine and newspaper advertising. There are also fun, young professionals within the organization.

ConsThere are not many promotions available at the local level unless a division sees growth. Unfortunately I was on board during the downturn of the real estate market in Florida. The sales success is only as good as the sales representatives hired and trained in the various divisions. Depending upon the real estate industry in the city/state you work you will see either really well-paid realtors working hard or really poorly paid realtors working hard. KB has a very strong brand and often times there is not a lot of room for doing creative campaigns outside of the typical KB program. You often have to fight to implement new ideas.

If you find a nick in a cabinet… Advice to Senior Management: Make monthly CSI realistic. You want "fake" numbers. You want us to beg for the 10 even when the homeowner is not completely… More
