Recently entering the Idaho homebuilding market is KB Home — a company that has built over 655,000 homes across the nation in the span of more than 65 years and currently operates in 47 markets. The team in the Boise market has already secured more than 1,100 lots over three planned communities and is actively seeking more land. Opening its new-home community, Graycliff, in South Meridian this spring, it is expected to have its first home deliveries in late 2022.
Selected to lead the Idaho division of KB Home as its president is Thomas Coleman, an experienced residential real estate developer, entrepreneur and leader in land acquisition and business operations. After graduating from Colgate University with a bachelor’s degree in mathematical economics, he received a master’s degree in real estate development from the University of Southern California.
No stranger to Idaho homebuilding, Coleman has been doing business in the Boise market since 2007 as Coleman Homes (a family-owned business started in 1972) and then as Toll Brothers after the company was acquired in 2016. Coleman Homes established a reputation for building quality homes throughout Idaho and beyond for over 35 years.
In his new role at KB Home, Coleman is responsible for the region’s operations from land acquisition and construction to sales and customer service. He said, “I’m very excited to be joining the KB Home team as we expand the company’s footprint into Idaho…Our focus will be on making homeownership more affordable, and we feel our personalized and customer-centric approach to homebuilding will produce strong results.”
