    I have been working at Richmond American Homes full-time


    Lets be clear, in sales RAH has surpassed every expectation. The Company culture is not only understanding of "Sales" and the 'Sales" process, but they give you every tool to be successful. From detailed training, sales systems and aids, to management and their accessibility. Earning potential is strong. The market research and competitive advantages are tangible. There's truly is no ceiling on your earning potential, amazing.


    Its not so much a downside as a commitment. Weekends are the busy days. So weekends are work days.
