Hello everyone...

Any suggestions on how to get to the person doing the hiring with major builders for onsite sales? My husband has submitted his resume via internet and applied on line...so far no response. Any suggestions or tips?

Jessica from the people I have spoken too these jobs are not to heavy right now, especially with the BOATLOAD of people who have recently LOST jobs across the country. Some major lenders have closed there Charlotte operations. There is a ton of people in Charlotte who were in the real estate / mortgage field looking for jobs right now.

There was also an article in last weeks Observer saying the slowdown of new construction is affecting related businesses.

Builders "were" selling somewhere near 20 homes a month a while ago, now and again this is based on conversations with new builder sales people they are lucky to get 6-7 a month.

This is why I am trying MY BEST to get out of this business.

My husband sells supplies to some of the large track builders. His business has dropped considerably as well because they are just not building as many houses as before. I really think getting into sales for onsite properties is all in who you know. Good luck.

I think it's about attitude not where you are from...You shouldn't be so down. I purchased my home from someone from up north..I don't know you however I've read a some of your posts and your negativity is rather apparent. It's too bad things haven't gone the way you planned however for a lot of transplants thing could not be better.

Jessica...the real estate market is really tough right now. It kind of reminds me of NY/ LI a few years ago....Everyone and there mother is a real estate agent....not to mention new home sales have slowed down because people can not sell homes elsewhere.

and what did you do....sit home and complain all day???? If you want to work and make a life for your family and yourself...you absolutely can...it's difficult to relocate; things don't always go your way but..if you are willing to make sacrifices for your long term goals..it will pay off!!

Not true since 2/3 of metro Charotte's population is from up north. So who do you think is going to do the hiring? Those numbers are in line with where I work too. Very few native southerners out of 1200 people in our corporate office.
