New Home Star – Why Work For 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. 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.

    I worked at New Home Star full-time

    Pros

    This place is overall a great place to work, and the leadership truly shows that they care. Their unique social platform allows you to learn, and connect with everyone around the states. The training is second to none, and will set you up to be successful. The culture is professional, yet they know how to have fun, and make it a good time. If you earn the opportunity, you can certainly make a lot of money, and a great living.

    Cons

    This position holds a heavy amount of responsibility. Things can be very stressful, with many things that are just out of your control. If the account builder does not have any opportunities for you, you can find yourself sitting, and waiting for an opportunity to arise, which mentally beats up someone that is just ready to sell. Even after the opportunity comes to sell in a community, you are at the mercy of how productive the builder will be. Which will determine how, and when you get paid. This line of work is truly hit or miss. If you are fortunate enough to work for a reputable builder under NHS, and you are in a growing community, you will be set up very well. If not, then you can grind, and grind until your time comes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and I know the future will continue to look bright. Find builders that hold themselves to a higher standard, and represent the same culture, and values.
