Security Guards

Does anyone know why there has been a security guard at the gates the last couple of weekend?

    Hi Laura,
    The security guard is there to help KB Home clients enter the community. If someone is there to see a home for sale, the guard can get them in. I think they’ve been there all week – not only the weekend.

    Perhaps while they are out there, we’ll have less gate damage/vandalism!

    Gotcha. I don’t always go through the main gates, so I never know if they are there or not, but I kinda like the idea of having someone there. She does look up from whatever she’s doing to make eye contact with whomever is going through the gate and that makes me feel a little better in regards to people coming through. I’m assuming KB is paying for it?

  3. webmaster says:

    Yes, KB is paying for the security services. The guy out there was very nice when I spoke to him :)

    I was in that area looking for a couple houses for sale posted online, and I must say that it is not to hard to get in. I have gone in there 3 times already, the first time the gate was open, the second I called the number on there and said I was looking at a house for sale, and the 3rd time my father called the same number and said he was there to look at a house for sale also. All 3 times where really easy to get it, and the security guard was there only one time in her car. Makes me wonder if thats all a burglar needs to do to enter the properties, and how no one would even know who he is. Are there any cameras at least?

    The gates aren’t there for security necessarily, and the security guard is only there for people wanting to get into the community to look at KB homes sales office. You could call them privacy gates if you want. In order to get “real” security in this community, our HOA dues would sky rocket.
