What is New Home Mystery Shopping?
Shoppers pose as potential new homebuyers and visit a homebuilder’s model center covertly video recording a sales associate. The purpose of the visit is to evaluate the performance of the sales associate. In states with a two-party consent requirement for audio/video recording, MB&C requires signed releases from all sales associates to be shopped.

- Are available weekdays from 10am to 6pm and have reliable transportation.
- Live in the continental United States ONLY.
- Have prior experience as a mystery shopper, preferably using video.
- Ability to realistically portray first-time homebuyers to luxury homebuyers and everything in between.
- Desired demographics: women, minorities, veterans, millennials, and active adults (age 55+) all encouraged to apply.
- Are professional, detail-oriented, responsible, and calm under pressure.
- Can pass a criminal background check.

Comments from Shoppers
” I cannot give enough praise to the folks at Melinda Brody. Video shopping can be challenging until you are totally comfortable with the equipment. In the beginning, there is a lot of trial and error, not to mention a steep learning curve. Once you’ve got it, you’re set, but until then it can be nerve racking and frustrating. Every associate at Melinda Brody that I have worked with are FABULOUS and super helpful. I have made several phone calls with questions and they have spent considerable time helping me. They are quick to return calls and e-mails and always available for assistance. If you are considering video shopping, I highly recommend Melinda Brody”

“MB&C is the whole package, treating the shopper well in a large variety of ways all at the same time. Communication is easy and questions are answered quickly. Shoppers are treated with respect and as actual people rather than a number to be deactivated at whim. The organization of the company is fantastic. I feel like I know what I’m supposed to do, instead of flying by the seat of my pants and hoping I get it right. Overall, MB&C is the company I most enjoy shopping for.”
“This is a first class company….I boast about MB&C all the time and proudly tell everyone what we do!”
