Data Never Sleeps - Every Minute of Every Day...

How much can first-time homebuyers afford? Where is the best state to build my next community? Are condos or single-family a better investment? How much financing do I need? What kind of kitchen upgrades should we offer?

You wouldn’t answer any of these questions without crunching the numbers, and the first step towards answers is gathering your information in one place. NEWSTAR Enterprise manages your business from sales to warranty in one software solution from Constellation.

397 actions per minute.

Every minute of the day, our customers perform 397 actions in NEWSTAR Enterprise. That’s a lot of homes being built, a lot of paper being saved, and a lot of information at your fingertips.

This is NOT a competition! Our builder management software is designed to make your life easier – not increase your click count. Powerful software manages your resources – people, materials, time and money – throughout the homebuilding process. Bringing your data into one software solution is just the beginning – making it available to stakeholders is the key to unlocking your data’s power.

At every stage of the homebuilding process, customers, developers, managers, superintendents, lenders, vendors and trades have access to the information they need, when they need it. Your customers have access to their sales and warranty information, your trades have access to their purchase orders and schedule, and your bank has up-to-date lot and community data. These are the real benefits of powerful homebuilding software.

In a world of clicks, actions and shares, powerful software makes your life easier. We’ll show you how.

Neal Communities is the 2015 Builder of the Year

Professional Builder, North America’s leading business publication dedicated to the home building industry, has named Neal Communities its 2015 Builder of the Year. The Sarasota-Fla.-based firm is the 49th builder to be honored as Builder of the Year by Professional Builder.

“With closings approaching 1,000 homes in 2015, Neal Communities did better coming out of the downturn than many companies did during the boom,” says Professional Builder Editorial Director Denise Dersin. “Neal’s focus on acquiring the best land and creating sustainable communities, along with its ability to hire—and keep—one of the best teams in the business has made it one of Florida’s fastest-growing home builders.”

We salute Neal Communities’ ability to weather the housing downturn by recognizing the trend early, finding a sold strategy, and putting a plan into action with strict controls to ensure success. The competition has noticed. Neal Communities was able to not only survive, but thrive through the downturn, and now sits on thousands and thousands of acres of prime land in Florida, without the typical bank loans to go with it. They are positioned for growth as the market rebounds toward a new normal. And they did it all while remaining loyal to their team – the Neal “family”.

“At Neal Communities, our entire team is deeply committed to improving the lives of the people we serve with superior customer service, products and value,” says Patrick Neal, owner and chairman of Neal Communities. “I could not be more proud of our dedicated team of exceptional home building professionals who inspire me to work harder every single day. To be recognized for excellence with this prestigious award is a special honor that we are humbled and pleased to accept.”

Congratulations to Neal Communities!
