Kyla Mcleod-Vice President of Sales and Marketing
I started my career in real estate in 2004. With almost two decades of sales and marketing experience, I can truly say I am passionate about my dedication to my client's real estate goals. I joined the Noura team in 2019 and have loved every minute of it. Out of all the builders and projects I have worked with, Noura is the only builder that has allowed customization for buyers. My position with Noura has further enhanced my construction knowledge and next level ability to exceed buyer’s new homes. My time not in the office or showhomes, you will find me on one of the local hiking trails, soccer field, surfing, and spending time with friends and family.
Jaime-Lyn Holloway -Executive Assistant
I am the Executive Assistant for the Noura Homes family. I really enjoy working in this fast-paced environment. Working for a family run business makes coming into work enjoyable for me. My job position allows me to meet and greet people coming into the office as well as speak with a wide range of people from trades workers to homeowners/renters to engineers and city workers; but my favorite is when my bosses' kids stop by to say hi after school. I look forward to being with Noura Homes for years to come and am excited for what the future holds.
Cynthia Liu- Accounting/bookkeeping
