What kind of people work for Temps For Tracts?
Experienced new home sales people who
have sold out a community will frequently work for us until their next

builder is not planning to build another community soon, the sales
person may then work for Temps For Tracts in order to find a sales position
with another builder.
Residential resale agents often want to try new home sales and will work
for us in order to decide if this side of the real estate industry meets
their needs. Not only does it allow them an opportunity to learn a whole
new area of real estate sales, but it also allows them to work for a
variety of builders and some of the best new home sales people in the

with on-the-job training by our experienced Field Trainers who work alongside
the new person at a job site. Thus, questions can be answered on the

Part-time workers are frequently needed just for weekends or for a few
days a week on an occasional basis. Some people who have other jobs may
want to work in new home sales on the weekends as a way to determine
if this is a career they wish to pursue or perhaps they have childcare
or family situations that will not allow them to work a full-time schedule.

for us to reach them when we have work assignments available.

job. Our builder clients look to us for job candidates based upon

at getting a job with a builder will depend on you: your attitude,
work ethics and the quality of your work.

“ I began working for Temps For Tracts in 1992 because I wanted the flexibility
that a full-time job would not allow. When my husband
needed after-surgery care, Temps For Tracts found work for me close to home.
he passed away, I needed to work a lot! They made sure I stayed busy. Now,
is really crazy and yet they continue to find work that
fits my needs. Many of the staff members at Temps For Tracts have become personal
over the years and I feel like family!”
If it weren’t for Temps For Tracts, I would never have had the
opportunity to become a lead sales agent at Wild Iris, a new home community
“ I have over 25 years of real estate sales and management experience,
and my association with Temps For Tracts is one of the most rewarding
relationships of my real estate career. Why? Because they are professional and
and consistent, compassionate and caring; elements sadly absent
most modern day relationships. Yet, these are the minute by minute, day by
of Temps For Tracts. The staff and owners are a credit to the industry!”
