Team Member Spotlight: Meet Briana
March 29, 2023
At McKee Builders, we know how important it is to have a strong, dedicated team here for you during your home-buying journey. We take every aspect of the process seriously and are proud to have a team of hardworking and passionate individuals. Each member is valuable and we’re happy to put a spotlight on one of those special members!
Meet Briana, our Design Studio Coordinator! She’s here to make the process easy and enjoyable by guiding you through the steps to personalize your new home. Having an in-house design specialist to help bring the vision for your dream home to life is something McKee Builders is proud to offer.
What are you most excited about at McKee Builders?
I’m always excited about our up-and-coming communities but right now I am most excited about our new Design Studio that is under construction.
What are some things you love about your role at the company?
What I love about my role as Design Studio Coordinator here at McKee is I get to travel and work with our buyers in our communities. We can walk the models together and visit homes under construction on-site to help guide them in their decisions. Also the relationships I have built over the last four years with the Sales and Productions teams at each community. Everyone that works at McKee, in my opinion, is top shelf. Each member of the McKee team has something to offer and I have benefited from their knowledge and insight.
How do you help guide customers?
Here at McKee, my role as Design Studio Coordinator is helping buyers make the Decorator Selections that fit their needs for their homes. This is their long-term investment. Helping to guide them with product knowledge based on what is important to them in their new homes. It is important to know what ideas they have for their home and how we can make their dreams a realization.
What inspired your love for design? Is it something you have always had an interest in?
I started in the new home industry in 1998 and my interest and appreciation for the time and dedication taken to design communities and model homes have only grown. Seeing the delight of prospective home buyers as they walk the models and seeing the design and merchandising that goes into each model is incredible. I have enjoyed the evolution of building materials and design trends as they have changed through the years.
Top Design Trends for 2023?
We are definitely seeing the warmer tones and bolder colors make a comeback as people move away from the gray/white color palette.
Anything else we should know about your role?
My role is evolving with McKee as we get ready to open our Design Studio and prepare to bring our selections process in-house. I feel as though the next big chapter of my career with McKee is starting and I am excited to get moved into our Studio.
