New Home Sales Consultant and Associate Broker with McKinley Homes Xi Veerkamp joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss her impressive OBIE win as well as recent McKinley Homes developments. Veerkamp joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the All About Real Estate segment.
After moving to the U.S. to complete her undergraduate degree in 2008, Veerkamp received her M.B.A. in real estate from Georgia State University. In 2018, she joined the McKinley Homes team as a land acquisition analyst and later, became the land acquisition manager before transitioning into her role in new home sales.
Although a relatively new company, McKinley Homes is a fast-growing metro Atlanta builder, experiencing nearly 40% growth year over year. With plans to reach 1,000 closings in the Atlanta market as well as expand into other markets, McKinley Homes is celebrating the ground-breaking of a 40-unit luxury condominium development in New York. Not limited to residential projects, the builder also specializes in retail, commercial and custom home construction.
Veerkamp said, “I’m very honored to be a part of this team.”
In January 2021, Veerkamp closed an astonishing 47 sales, setting her up for a year of continued success. Before she stepped into her role as a new home sales consultant, there was an average of four sales per month. In her first month, she closed on five sales and has since closed an average of 16 sales per month for the new home sales division. Veerkamp credits the products and marketing provided by the McKinley Homes team for her incredible success.
Veerkamp shared, “The more you work, the more you get in return in this industry.”
To combat the current inventory shortage, McKinley Homes is working to bring more communities to the market while focusing on pricing, location and product to meet buyer needs. In Veerkamp’s opinion, regardless of the state of the market, those three components are key to successfully selling homes.
A top McKinley Homes community located less than 10 minutes from downtown Woodstock and two miles from I-575, East of Main is virtually sold out but still has opportunities in its sister development! A unique community feature, the McKinley Homes team constructed a shopping center directly in front of the development to offer residents of this 58-unit townhome community great access to nearby retail opportunities.
Nearly selling out of its first phase soon after opening, Estates at Starr Creek features single-family homes situated on expansive lots, some surpassing half an acre. Close proximity to downtown Cumming affords residents of this community a central Forsyth County location as well as easy access to local amenities.
