New Home Star – Why Work With Us?


BEST-IN-CLASS TRAINING

Fashioned by industry experts, our training curriculum tackles the constantly-evolving challenges of the home buying process. This multi-tiered approach consists of video courses, engaging workshops and one-on-one mentoring.

HIGH-INCOME POTENTIAL

We firmly believe in creating opportunities for people that are not only purpose-driven, but also financially rewarding. Earning 30% more than the industry, our sales agents earned an average annual income of just over $96,000 in 2016.

UNPARALLELED SUPPORT

Ingrained into our approach is our multi-faceted support to arm you with everything needed to be successful. From business planning tools to our in-house marketing agency, we have a variety of resources to empower you to thrive.

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

New Home Connect™ has revolutionized the homebuilding industry. This platform enables users to manage community operations and pursue personal development through marketing tools, training and peer collaboration.

TEAM-ORIENTED CULTURE

Working for New Home Star feels more like being part of a family than a spot on a flow chart with a corporation. Our commitment to collaboration and mentorship ensures everyone develops into the best version of themselves.

 
 

TEAM-ORIENTED CULTURE

At New Home Star, you are never a forgotten cog in the machine; you are a member of our nationwide family. Coming from many different states and builders, our nationally-dispersed team is brought together via many channels including our online community platform, quarterly leadership meetings and frequent field visits. Our team members genuinely care for, and push each other to become the best possible version of themselves. This is intensified through major competitions that happen every couple of months. Whether it be giving away a Tesla in the Summer Games initiative, or going head-to-head bracket style for March Madnezz, you will always feel like your inner competitor is being drawn out.

BEST-IN-CLASS TRAINING

One of the many differences that separates New Home Star from any other company in the industry is the dedication we place on developing our people and preparing them for the realm of sales.

During this period, trainees receive one-on-one mentoring from our national network of mentors, are challenged frequently during field visits from our expert sales trainers, and are required to pass a robust final roleplay designed to guarantee preparedness for the sales floor.

This training program is supplemented by the most advanced online learning platform in the industry. Through New Home Connect™, users can access modules with hundreds of training videos, collaborate with peer groups, create dialogue with industry veterans, manage their community operations, and pursue personal development through marketing tools. New Home Connect™ is constantly refined, ensuring that it is potent in its ability to address every difficult situation faced by our sales agents.

    I have been working at New Home Star full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is smart and fun! During the current pandemic it was like watching brilliance happen right in front of us as we had new training daily on how to continue to be successful in the changing climate we were in. The company didn't let not being able to get together in person stop us from having fun via Zoom and getting together to communicate what everyone was working on or completed so we always knew what was out there for us to continue to earn a living and connect with our peers. Just cannot say enough good things about the experience from when I started to now. This company is doing and will continue to to do great things in the industry of New Construction.

    Cons

    No micromanagement here. They arm you with the tools and expect you to use them. The cool thing is that if you ask for help, you have access to anyone in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever stop

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New Home Star (Elmhurst, IL) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Initially, I had a preliminary phone interview, followed by a panel interview. I took a written proficiency test during the 1st interview and then two online tests. I was called back to schedule a 2nd in-office interview and met with a Manager and a Recruiter. The office staff is incredibly nice and you can tell that they support one another.
