New Home Star – Why Work For Us?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.



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.

Check out our most recent initiative:



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. Every new hire undergoes a comprehensive 8-week paid training program that tackles the constantly-evolving challenges of the sales process. 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.

Our unique and dynamic culture is predicated on expressing our appreciation for the efforts of our sales force by acknowledging achievement with an abundance of rewards and recognition.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New Home Star (Greenville, SC) in October 2016.


    I met with three of our head senior staff and had detailed conversations with each - all different questions and experiences - to see not only if I fit for this job position, but if this job was for me.
