Jordyn Croom

Company: Oakwood Homes

Title: Manager of Entitlements and Acquisition

My passion and involvement in the home building industry began while I was pursuing my BSBA in Real Estate and the Built Environment at the University of Denver. I held internships at Thrive Home Builders and MetroStudy (now Zonda) before beginning my post collegiate professional career in April 2018 when I became the first Ascent Project Manager in Oakwood Homes’ unique Ascent Rotational Leadership Program. During my two-year tenure in the Ascent Program, I had the opportunity to work as a purchasing coordinator, financial analyst, sales counselor, and land analyst for Oakwood. This unique experience has given me the opportunity to gain a holistic understanding of the operations of home building and has helped me tremendously in my current role as a manager of entitlements and acquisition for Oakwood.
I am extremely passionate about helping other young adults find their niche in this wonderful world of home building through my involvement with NAHB as a Board member of the NAHB Student Chapters Advisory Board. I have also been honored to have been given the opportunity to speak on an international stage multiple times at the International Builder Show.
Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to have gained experiences talking to high level executives and members of leadership teams at my company and others around the nation. I would love to pass along the knowledge I have gained through my experience and my mentors on how to connect, network and grow personally and professionally in this industry!
