Featured Employee: Meet Cynthia!
June 5, 2020
At McKee Builders, our team’s expertise allows us to build magnificent homes and communities, but it’s our compassion and care for our buyers that truly sets us apart. To us, knowledge and talent make a great employee… but the ability to make a first-time buyer feel confident, help a move-up buyer find exactly what they’re looking for, and brighten someone’s day when it’s needed most is what makes a McKee employee.
This week, we’re excited to introduce you to a team member whose positive energy and passion for her job can be felt by coworkers and buyers alike. Cynthia Caroll works in sales and design, and we can’t wait for you to get to know her! In her own words, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how she came to McKee, what she loves about her role, and her interests outside of work:
Tell us about your past work experience:
Prior to joining McKee Builders, I worked as a print production manager for an advertising/marketing firm. I had been with them for 10 years and enjoyed the position, but I was not fulfilled. When my daughter enrolled at the University of Delaware, I sold my home and moved to Delaware. It took some time to adjust, and the local job search was tailored to certain industries, with no large advertising agencies anywhere. But as luck would have it, I met a former sales manager and we hit it off. She recommended me for an open position. I interviewed with Frank McKee, Jr., and was elated when I was offered the job!
What are you most excited about at McKee Builders:
SO MANY THINGS! First, McKee is a family-owned company that truly cares about each employee. While times have changed, McKee has always ensured that we’re valued, appreciated, and acknowledged. They’re a dog-friendly company, and that alone speaks volumes. They listen, they teach, they laugh, they play, they support, and they believe.
What are some things you love about your role:
SO MANY MORE THINGS!! If you ask anyone, and have ever been outside on a clear, crisp day, you’ll hear me shouting from the rooftops just how much “I love my job!” There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t wake up and note how blessed I am to have a fabulous place to go each day, and on top of that, I’m privileged to work with talented, impressive coworkers whose hearts are truly invested in their work. The best part is the smile on a homeowner’s face when they purchase their new home — whether it’s someone who has just bought their very first home, or someone who will finally retire in a beautiful community near the beach and never look back. Each day comes with a challenge and ends with an element of accomplishment.
What are some of your interests or hobbies:
I love to paint using acrylics and watercolor. I love doing yoga and exercising with my daughter, and I enjoy dining out in downtown Rehoboth Beach while shopping with my sister. Spending time with family is a priority.
Anything else we should know about you:
I want to grow with this innovative company and take in as much as I can about this ever-changing industry. And yes, I am now FULFILLED in my career!
All of us at McKee Builders want to thank Cynthia for setting such a positive example of what it means to be a McKee employee, and inspiring us to be our best for our buyers and each other every single day. We can’t wait for you to experience just how easy and fun it is to work with her!
