What does a New Home Sales Consultant do?
New home sales consultants work in the real estate industry and help customers find and buy a new property suiting their needs and preferences. They work for homebuilding companies and are responsible for consulting with clients to identify their requirements, present applicable inventory and offers, complete relevant paperwork, and reach monthly sales targets.
