Testimonials

We have a mostly experienced sales team, as most people know the experienced agents NEVER want “training”. Kimberly’s unique style of coaching our team had everyone participating and wanting more. Our agents trained with Kimberly on their days off and everyone said it was time well spent. I am an experienced coach and trainer but I’m smart enough to realize that sometimes an outside voice can really have a positive impact on the team. My team has set back to back monthly sales records since Kimberly’s visit. I highly recommend that before you call anyone else you call Kimberly and her team.

Kimberly Mackey has been a key part of our Sales and Marketing for close to two (2) years. When she came on with our company, I had a Sales and Marketing Director that had been with us for close to 30 years. She completely turned our Sales Program around and taught our Sales Director what is needed to develop a SuperBowl Championship Sales Team and Program. Kimberly is a tremendously Organized, Structured, Focused, Passionate, Committed, Skilled, Talented and Detail Oriented person with a complete understanding of what is needed to produce a winning sales team. I cannot say enough about what she has taught my sales staff about what it takes to be successful and to be able to hit your goals. She removed their complaints about no traffic by instructing them on Her 10-5-2-1 System that requires them to “Make it Happen, Not Wait for it to Happen.” I strongly recommend Kimberly Mackey!!!!! She is Fantabulous!!!!!!!

I wanted to take a moment to comment about the great training opportunity that I experienced recently. I just earned my New Home Specialist Certification through Kimberly Mackey’s week long course. Kimberly turned what I expected to be an exercise in order to earn an extra 1% on new home sales into a true educational experience. Kim’s knowledge, along with her ability to convey what she knows, is phenomenal! I was also pleasantly surprised that Kimberly found a way to make this class equally valuable to both newcomers to the business and to veterans, like myself, with 17 years of industry experience. I can honestly say that I came away from this class in a better position to serve my clients and to make more sales in a shorter amount of time. I would encourage anyone who has not already done so to take this class! Thank you (Berkshire Hathaway) for making Kimberly available to me.

I had the privilege of working with Kathy as her partner when I was a new Sales Manager. I learned so much from her. KT is a tough interviewer and has a knack for identifying true talent. She was not only strategic in her positioning of communities but was motivating to the individual sales reps. She was adept at identifying each individual ‘s motivators and focused on them to help each achieve their personal goals. She built a strong team with a combination of holding them accountable and having a lot of fun!
Her breadth of knowledge and experience gives her the ability to assess an organization ‘s strengths as well as find areas to develop. She will be able to connect quickly with a team and they will welcome the help she offers. KT will be an asset to your team!

I attended the New Homes Specialist training with Kimberly Mackey last year when I was a brand new REALTOR®. It was a great educational experience then. Last week, I came back and spent another couple of days in the training as a refresher and it was even better. I got so much more out of it having experience in the business. I am able to apply the learning to actual situations. I absolutely recommend this program to everyone no matter where they are in their real estate career!

I had the pleasure of working with Kathy as part of the CalAtlantic Tampa/Sarasota team.
Kathy joined us as Vice President of Sales and Marketing at a very critical and intense time. CalAtlantic had been recently established with the merger of Ryland and Standard Pacific. Kathy brought great experience and leadership and quickly established stability and structure. Some of Kathy’s strengths that I appreciate most are her positive, can do, upbeat attitude and her ability to balance this with a hard driving business focus. She is a true professional and demonstrates a consistent passion for her work and the teams that she leads. I am confident that Kathy will continue to bring success to any organization or team that she choses to join.

I have received training with Kimberly Mackey for over a year. I attended her famous Boot Camp and received one on one training with her as well. I learned more about home sales the first day of Boot Camp then I ever learned in the past. During her one on ones with me, she helped me dissect my traffic units and turn them into buyers with a whole new way of thinking. Her “Planned Encounters” guided me through many sales and helped me create traffic during the times when traffic was slow. She jump started my career! Want to sell more? Use her and you will not regret it.

I had the privilege of working as a new home sales consultant under Kathy Tucker. I have been in the business 20 years and she is a true professional! I cannot tell you how much I grew as a senior sales and marketing representative in new home sales and as an individual while on her team. With her 30 years of experience, it is truly remarkable to see her in action!

To be an amazing sales manager it is imperative that you have performed the job. Kathy’s on site sales experience, high skill level and insight made it easier for her to relate to my successes and struggles. She was always direct about her management expectations but never judgmental if I made errors or needed extra training. She was always willing to jump in to help but also empowered us to make decisions regarding our communities. She observed her team in action and gave positive feedback as well as constructive guidance.

One of Kathy’s strong points is that she is extremely organized and driven. This played a major role in my success as I learned how to model her proven success and goals. Working with Kathy was extremely rewarding and I cannot tell you what a difference she made in all her team’s day to day life.

Mike Ryan
Sales Manager, Samuelsen Builders, Inc.


We hired Kimberly in mid-2010 and had her implement a series of sales training sessions with our sales team that included a weekly group session with individual follow-up training with each sales rep at their model locations. We found her to be very detailed and provided creative input on how our reps could cultivate their own traffic. I would highly recommend Kimberly to any company looking to get back to basics and improve sales performance.

Kimberly Mackey is a proven leader in our industry. She doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk by providing REAL WORLD SOLUTIONS to today’s challenges for builders and brokerages.

Myers Barnes

Kathy Tucker is the consummate professional first and foremost, but it is her leadership style as a sales manager that I can speak to from personal experience. She is effective in the sales manager role from a numbers perspective while at the same time she knows how to bring out the best talents of her sales force, empowering them to be their best in producing results.
Kathy understands the challenges of the sales consultant role from personal experience and recognizes how to help the consultant find a resolution themselves through her leadership, ultimately fostering for their personal growth. Lastly, she understands the power of hiring the right person for the job and is adept at identifying them. Anyone who works with Kathy will consider themselves fortunate, as I have. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking for her leadership, guidance and coaching.

Kimberly’s energy and boundless enthusiasm for her work is unparalleled. She works tirelessly in order to achieve her clients’ goals. Perhaps most refreshing — besides her unwavering ‘can do’ attitude — is that she is true to her word. When she commits to a project rest assured it will be done.

Kimberly has been incredible to work with. Over the past couple of years here in Tampa, she has provided invaluable advice and a variety of educational/motivational services for our Sales Team at Inland Homes®.  She is dependable, trustworthy and really stays on the cutting edge.

I personally chose Kimberly to be a presenter at my event because of her industry knowledge and skills, and she is REAL. There are far too many people trotting around attempting to be experts who have very little provable experience, depth, and solutions to today’s homebuilder challenges….Kimberly is the REAL DEAL!

Kimberly’s seminars are simultaneously informative and enjoyable. Her relaxed education style actually promotes class participation, questions and interactions. We’ve had Kimberly present two social media seminars to our sales force and saw surprisingly quick results! Kimberly’s strength is reigning in a subject as daunting and, for many people, intimidating as the emerging social networking media and paring it down to terms we can use in our business and personal lives.

JC Gatlin

If I knew even one 100th of what Kimberly knows about new home construction and real estate, I’d consider myself knowledgeable! As a 2014 graduate of Kimberly’s New Homes Specialist class, I feel fortunate to have amassed such quality tools for my real estate toolkit. The information I learned in class has been invaluable for selling “used” homes as well. Kimberly is an energetic and passionate instructor and a delight to interact with.

Kimberly got the crowd going at Secrets of Becoming A Master Networker held by the Naples Area Board of Realtors. It was a sold out event that brought in both new agents as well as many experienced agents, she brought new ideas to the table and reminded us of the basics. Excellent job Kimberly, thank you for all you did, it was a great success.

Andrew Norgart

Thank you Kimberly for the great program you provided for our Orlando, Tampa, and Ocala sales teams. It provided them with a perspective that many didn’t have prior to this training. I saw many light bulbs go on. Essential to good training is group participation. Your class elicited that in great volume. Many raised their hands to answer questions and participate in front of peers. Beyond the class, our team has taken the knowledge and applied it, with powerful success. One realtor presentation produced 5 appointments. From an office that had previously produced a total of 1 appointment from 10 presentations. You ‘get it’ and it is good to see you helping others get it.

Mike Finley
General Sales Manager, Pulte Group


Kimberly is a well prepared speaker and consultant who does a great job catering the content to her client’s needs. She works successfully both one on one and with larger groups. She also works well with Management and front line Teammates specializing in the sales arena.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Kimberly and New Homes Solutions to any builder; in any market; who endeavors becoming a top producing company.
