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

    Pros

    This company does everything and anything to set you up for success. New Home Star is the most employee focused company I have ever worked for. If you have ever asked yourself "why can't my job appreciate my hard work?" or "Why will my job not help me get ahead?" then this is the job for you! They will always put you first and appreciate everything you do. There is plenty of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    This is a job that with great reward comes great responsibility. If you are not driven to work hard then this isn't the job for you. Every employee at New Home Star will tell you that this company will change your life but you have to earn it as well. I promise you will not regret it.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, SC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Home Star (Greenville, SC) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Things you need to know about this company. It's 100% commission based. You will be driving very very far to get to your neighborhood of sales. You can not sell real estate without a license, so I suspect you have to obtain one, or you will be splitting commission with someone who has one. You will likely be going weeks or evens a month without a paycheck. This job is not good for someone with a family, or who has bills to pay.
