“I chose to come work for Neal Communities because I was attracted to the feeling of ‘Family’ despite the fact that Neal is a large builder. I would say a true sense of family exists within the company. I absolutely love coming to work every day.”

Melissa Nicoletta, New Home Sales Associate

“Working at Waterscapes is truly a pleasure. Having worked in the pool business since I was a teenager, I can appreciate the professional service we provide. Operating under the Neal Communities umbrella, we make building a pool with the home seamless. We design pools with our client’s input and seeing their expression when they see our creation in 3-D is priceless. We build relationships from design to construction and beyond. At Waterscapes, hard work never goes unnoticed and I am proud to be part of the team!”

Rob LaGasse, Pool Designer

Wendi Leatherwood, Online Sales Counselor

“I appreciate working for Neal Communities because we are a family-owned, privately held builder. This makes such a difference on the level of customer service I am allowed to provide. We see the homeowners as individuals, not just a sale. Seeing the smiles on a new homeowners face, and, knowing that they are moving into a quality home is what motivates me. I really enjoy helping customers find the right home for them to create memories for years to come. #TeamNeal means you are part of the Neal family.”

Monica Bishop, New Home Sales Associate

“I chose to come to Neal for advancement and opportunity. I was coming from a national home builder and concerned I would not have the upward mobility I desired. The best part of my job is creating something for people and watching other people in the industry grow. Home building becomes very personal and is the largest investment most people will ever make. Making their dreams a reality is a priceless experience. Working at Neal is special because of the atmosphere and family oriented mentality. It is not just the Neal Team that we consider family, but we are able to treat all of our customers that way as well.”

Josh Hoot, Director of Construction

“Neal has provided me with wonderful opportunities to grow, lead, develop and train. From learning opportunities to spearheading important projects, to self-development and the ability to train others, there are so many ways to break from routine, constantly adapt and improve. Creativity, innovation, learning and development are celebrated here and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”

Chris Kohatsu, Digital Marketing Strategist

“The opportunity to work at Neal allows me to pursue my career goals and be part of a wonderful team. I work under great mentors who encourage growth and active involvement in the company.
