How are new construction real estate agents paid? Only comission or salary too?

I am currently working as a real estate agent for a nationwide company, Century 21. We are relocating and I am considering working in new construction because there is tons of new construction in the city where we're moving.

What if no clients come in and they really can't do anything proactive to get more clients. I have an interview soon so I'll get more definite answers about pay, but I was just wondering and considering all my options so I can have a job lined up when we move. Thank you!
