    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.

    Pros

    In Real Estat it’s all about location, location, location. At New Home Star the locations are vast and still growing but the Culture wins the race. What an amazing team vibe filled with not just support and tools for success but also a Career Path that beckons you to be all that you have ever wanted to be. Trust me, New Home Star is different. It’s not the dead end opportunity where you have worked where your happiness and creativity have been snuffed. It’s not the place where you cringe because you have to get up, go to work, and actually contemplate getting out of the car. It’s not the place that makes you question your value and career choice. It is the place of positivity, education, training, support, appreciation and where the sky isn’t even the limit.

    Cons

    Wow after being in New Home Sales 16 Years this is a hard one. I say that because comparatively speaking there are no real cons. Of course there is never a perfect career with zero opportunity for improvement and to think there might be is an imperfect thought. However, New Home Star listens and cares about your ideas and they rely on you as part of the front line to share ways to improve. So even the cons aren’t cons for long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about your people, community, and investing in ways to inspire, empower and grow your talent into the future leaders they were destined to be. Thank you for all that you do!

    Pros

    NHS by far the best company that I have ever worked for and I can confidently say that I will never leave. NHS is not only a smart and successful business, the NHS community follows positive morals and always displays integrity.

    Cons

    I do not have one con

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing good things

    Pros

    Get some experience in how not to sell real estate. These folks think that they are fooling the public by buying cheap land down the street from housing projects and calling it a gated community. It’s more like selling homes in a future war zone.

    Cons

    They really think that what they are selling is some sort of luxury home. When in reality the communities are one recession away from becoming section 8 housing.

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

    Pros

    The training process and overall culture of the company is like nothing you have seen before. The amount of resources you are given and the tools for success are endless. I have so many support systems that are here for me at the drop of a hat. New Home Star is all about growth from within which says a lot about the company. Its definitely not easy, but if you ever get a chance to work for this company you cannot pass it up.

    Cons

    Being in sales and in charge of my own salary is amazing, I just wish we were provided benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at New Home Star full-time

    Pros

    I was skeptical after reading so many good reviews. I am typically a pessimist in most situations. After getting half-way through training I knew this company was the real deal. Not only do they care about their employees they want the best for their future, regardless of what that looks like. I am so happy I took the plunge and believed the good, it is for real!!

    Cons

    Allow significant others/spouses to more events.
