“Let me start off by saying what the Gerry’s sales system did for me. It did just that… It gave me a system. A process. A measurable platform from which I could see how I was achieving my goals as well as a way of setting my goals. Gerry is an encourager and a motivator (i.e butt kicker! He holds you accountable for success) that was a pleasure to work with and have him share his knowledge of the industry. You can’t go wrong with this system. I’ll give you an example of what I experienced. Some agents gave us accidental referrals. You know what that is? It’s when they tell their insureds to call a 1-800 number. And by chance, accidentally, we get the claim. After working Gerry’s system, those same agents began giving me 14 – 18 direct calls for claims each year.
Gerry’s sales system allowed us to break free from the competition and do something different and valuable for insurance agents we’re wanting to build on for referrals. It set us apart and kept our competitors guessing how we were making the impact we were. That’s because Gerry was in the industry for many years and his experience and knowledge helped him form a great training tool for sales and leadership in the restoration industry.
If you’re looking to build a sales team in the disaster restoration industry with a tried and true process, the Gerry’s sales system is what you need. Advanced one on one training along with group training. You’ll receive the most up to date, realistic training that’s usable from day one. I encourage you to sign up today.”

“By implementing Gerry’s proven sales strategies, we were able to transform our job source formula. We were relying on insurance program leads and TPAs to provide our income and represented almost 80% of our revenue. Not good. Gerry taught us how to break free from the strangle hold of program work and now over 85% of our work comes directly from local relationships. Our close rate with agents became much more consistent with 8 out of 10 agents giving us an opportunity to work for them after our initial visit. His course allowed us to become more independent, more profitable and greatly reduced the drama and headaches with our staff that were producing a toxic environment within our business. I cannot recommend Gerry’s sales strategies enough. Innovative and effective. Best decision I have made in my 20 yrs of business ownership.”

“After 22 months of working with Gerry, I feel like I have to share what a terrific program he offers. I’ve been in sales for 13 years, and I have never experienced a training and consulting program that comes anywhere close to this one. It’s the most comprehensive and detailed program I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen several).
Gerry’s first hand knowledge of the disaster restoration industry, combined with his sales expertise and heart for helping others improve makes his program unique. Although the training is industry specific, the principles he teaches could apply to any industry. I wish I’d had a consultant like Gerry when I began my sales career.
I’m about to complete my second year with ServiceMaster, and by my two year mark I will have more than doubled my sales for last year. Gerry teaches you how to make the most of every agent visit and turn those agents into partners. The value proposition he has developed is brilliant, and it impresses agents because it’s so unique. Many have told me that they have never heard any vendor present anything like it before. It really wows them. Although there have been some agents who didn’t respond to the value prop, it broke the ice with them and gained their attention and respect.
If you want to just be the kind of traditional marketer who drops off candy jars and cookies, make small talk and not really get anywhere, well okay. But if you want to be a sales professional who agents recognize as someone with something important to discuss, and really be set apart from the other vendors who come through their doors, call Gerry and find out how.”

See the numbers for yourself:
2013: 15 agents with 4 or more losses x average loss of $2,500 = $150,000
