I’m excited to announce that Benjie Burford has joined the Welcome team as our VP of Sales.
Demand for our homes has continued to accelerate since our first home model launch in March. The momentum is exciting, and Benjie is coming in to support our growth strategy as the first sales team member. He'll be building out and leading Welcome Homes’ sales team and broker groups across the markets we’re focusing on.
The housing market around the U.S. is booming, and demand for homes is predicted to be a long-term trend, lasting well into the next decade. Welcome Homes is well-positioned to address that real market need — it’s what we’re designed for — and bringing on Benjie will help us take advantage of the huge opportunity we’re seeing.
Benjie is no stranger to the real estate industry. Before joining the team, he was the National Head of Sales Management at Compass, one of the leading national real estate companies. He led over 200 sales managers across the U.S. who managed over 25,000 agents. Benjie has a strong entrepreneurial sales background and has successfully launched several companies within the real estate space, one of which was acquired by Compass in 2018.
With an industry pro like Benjie on the team, Welcome Homes is well-positioned to sell thousands of our new custom homes in the coming years. Learn more about Welcome Homes or join our team to help us on our mission.
