KB Home (NYSE:KBH) , one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, is seeing healthy growth in Tucson as it leverages its long history and productive local relationships, with a rise in grand openings that will lift the builder’s projected community count in the area by the end of 2014 to its highest level in the last five years. In addition, KB Home will be opening a new Tucson Design Studio in the fall, offering an enhanced KB homebuying experience where shoppers can select from thousands of custom design options to reflect their tastes and preferences.

KB Home will continue to expand on its strong foundation in the region under the leadership of Amy McReynolds, senior vice president of its Tucson business. McReynolds, a veteran in the homebuilding industry, joined KB Home last year, and has assumed responsibility for day-to-day operations and to build on the brand, reputation and platform that KB Home has forged over the years.

KB Home has a rich heritage in the Tucson market which includes the milestone 1998 acquisition of Estes Homebuilding Co., a highly respected local builder that, like KB Home, was established in 1957, contributing more than forty years of experience to the KB team at the time of the transaction.

“KB Home has been a prominent builder in Tucson for decades and we are well positioned with Amy McReynolds leading our team there,” said Jim Widner, regional president of KB Home. “Amy brings a combination of deep local knowledge and operational expertise that make her uniquely capable to generate additional growth at an accelerated rate in this dynamic housing market.”

A Tucson native and University of Arizona graduate, McReynolds has more than 20 years of homebuilding experience, including leadership roles in sales, marketing and operations in the Tucson, Phoenix, Southern California and New Mexico markets.

This year, KB Home held grand openings for four new home communities in the Tucson area – Cantabria at Rancho Valencia; Somerset at Gladden Farms; Presidio Porvenir at Rancho Sahuarita, and Mountain Vail Reserve – and plans to launch two more new home communities during the balance of the year.

Beginning in the fall, Tucson-area KB buyers will be able to more easily customize their new home at the KB Home Design Studio, located conveniently off I-10 in downtown Tucson, through the builder’s unique homebuying experience. In addition to selecting their specific lot location, floor plan and structural options, KB homebuyers will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with an expert design consultant at the KB Home Design Studio, who will walk them through the various d’ecor, technology, and sustainability-focused components that are included or can be incorporated in a new KB home. Home shoppers will also be welcome to come into the KB Home Design Studio to explore the builder’s wide range of floor plans and design choices and to discuss with a design consultant what options are right for their interests, needs and budget.
