Recent storms rolled through the country and we have immediate openings for sales estimators in the Dallas and Oklahoma City area.
View our craigslist ad at : http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/sls/2440474511.html If you call that number, you'll reach my OKC manager. Shoot me an email through this forum if you prefer. Here's the basic text:
"Our sales reps are signing 5-10 contracts a week and making on average $1500 per roof. We are looking for experienced sales reps. We have Xactimate and other resources to maximize every deal. Great pay plan. We will train if you have sales experience.
Basic tools for success: Use of a licensed, insured vehicle and ownership or ability to purchase the "tools of the trade" such as a camera, laptop, cell phone, etc. A fold up ladder is a handy tool for this job."
I've heard estimates that there are 350,000 claims in the Dallas area. My guess is that the number is 1/2 to 1/3 of that but thats still a lot of work. Most of our work will be roof replacements but there will be some siding repairs. All of it is insurance sales. Insurance sales are the easiest to close because the homeowners are getting new roofs paid for by insurance with only a small amount of of pocket (their deductible).
You do not have to be a slick salesperson or have great sales skills. Your main skill will be honesty, integrity and sincereity and be willing to talk to people. This is a people to people, over the kitchen table, business and any friendly person can do it. You do not have to know a lot about roofs and we will train you regarding the insurance process.
The one drawback is the slowness of the first commission check. In many cases, it will take at least 30 days before the commission is earned if the homeowner has not filed a claim yet. So, anyone traveling to Dallas or OKC will have to have enough cash on hand to sustain themselves for at least a month. There are exceptions to this. For instance, today, one of our salesguys signed a deal with a homeowner who already has a check in hand. We can build his job immediately. The sales guy could draw full commission within a week or so. We pay draws when the collected money exceed our actual expenses.
Anyways, please shoot me an email if you want to get more information. I'm not real familiar with how this site works anymore but i think you still can email me through the forum.
Is anybody out there?
