who we are
Decades of Homebuilding Experience. We have a thorough understanding of acquisition, development and sale of new home communities, due to employment and client relationships with homebuilders, architects, resale brokerages, investors, buyers, and municipalities. Headed by Dave and Sara Cogan, Mammoth Steps provides a one-stop shop for both visualization and marketing for the real estate industry. For over 3 years, Mammoth Steps acted as a full service marketing agency for Canada-based Landmark Group of Companies, helping them launch their US homebuilding division. Prior to opening Mammoth Steps, Sara was the Marketing Manager for Engle Homes and Advertising Manager for Lennar and D.R. Horton. And Dave was the in-house Architectural 3D Artist for Lennar.
Team. Based in Scottsdale, AZ, all of our visualization and marketing is produced in-house with our staff of 3D Artists, Production Artists, Graphic Designers and Marketers. Our extended team includes our programmers and web developers, as well as trusted production and printing vendors.
Lennar, Meritage Homes, Monterey Homes, Shea Homes, Mattamy Homes, Ashton Woods, Starlight Homes, Joseph Carl Homes, Cachet Homes, Brown Communities, Landmark Group, Pinnacle West Homes, Bella Rosa Homes, La Vida Homes, Providence Homes, Lantana Homes, Costa Verde Homes, Cullum Homes, ASGi Homes, Olthof Homes, and many more developers and architects.
Architectural Visualization (renderings, floor plans, site maps, virtual models, animations). 300+ communities locally, across the US, and in Canada.
Marketing (family, urban, luxury, active adult | SFD, townhomes, condos). 100+ communities and 12,000+ individual residences over the last 20 years, providing us with strategic experience in soft, normal and strong real estate markets.
Sales Office (renderings, wall displays and signage, plat maps, aerials, etc.). Coordinated and managed the assembly of 90+ new sales offices (including large masterplan sales centers) with furniture configurations and all graphics and visualization.
Signage. Coordinated and managed onsite and offsite signage of 90+ new communities.
All visualization at Mammoth Steps is produced in-house, enabling a tight watch on quality control and production timelines. Producing over 3,500 renderings per year, we handle volume the way it should be - dynamic vs. linear. Where most 3D studios operate a linear production schedule and every job is placed at the back of the line, our production schedule is instead analyzed each and every day to accommodate priorities. This allows us to provide unparalleled service and timing for new renderings and revisions, as well as expedite larger projects in unison.
We know how to set realistic expectations for delivery. Homebuilding is a hurry up to wait environment. We don't feel its fair to penalize the builder for the nature of the business, so you will never see us charge for rush fees.
