    Program by


    Cody Wilson





    In today’s market consumers are becoming more educated, and it is becoming harder and harder to separate yourself from your competition. Closing a sale on a home is becoming more difficult, and builders are looking for creative ways to get the consumers attention in order to close a sale. If you have real estate agents, internal/external sales teams, or anyone who is selling or marketing your homes I highly recommend you send them to this class!

     

    In this class you will learn the following:

    • Understanding your customers needs and wants
    • How to relate what you are putting in your home to your customers
    • How to effectively sell the value of what you are putting in your homes
    • Learn effective proven selling techniques that will differentiate yourself from your competition

     

    Cody Wilson from Owens Corning has been educating and training builders on how to sell homes for over 18 years throughout the US . He has taken all of the most effective selling techniques he has learned though the years and will share them in this class!
