For me, working in the world of new construction homes began as a part-time laborer for a framing contractor to pay may way through college.  I took this education and began selling new homes with a large, national builder, acting as the face of the company and managing the customer’s building experience from beginning to end.  After several years of this I transitioned to selling for a smaller, luxury custom builder and also started representing new home buyers in purchases from builders across the metro — and that’s when the real fun started.
