Testimonials

I've been involved in roofing and construction for a number of years. One problem I ran into as well as many of my friends in the roofing business, was losing jobs to the insurance company refusing to pay legitimate claims because of loop holes and other criteria which they claim disqualified the insured from being covered from storm damage.

After experiencing this frustration for a number of years I found Mark's school online and figured I had nothing to lose.

Recently one of my customers had an insurance claim which the insurance company only agreed to pay for half of the roof. I prepared myself by spending 10 minutes on the school's website to review the information I needed to properly handle the claim... And only 5 minutes on the phone with mark asking a couple of quick questions.

Sure enough after initially meeting with the adjuster he claimed the insurance company would only pay for half of the roof.

I have never been a great debater and often have had difficulty arguing with adjusters. After only 5 minutes discussing why the insurance company was responsible for replacing the whole roof, the insurance adjuster shock my hand... returned to his car and returned with a check for the full amount of the entire roof.

Without the websites resources I would have never been able to negotiate the claim so easily.

I joined the property adjustment association back in late august of 2011. It was one of the best things I could of done for myself. I originally started just to get the information because my parents... we suffered a real bad hail storm in chicago in june and the insurance company was giving them the runaround. So I joined just to you know get some knowledge under my belt and try to get a better understanding of the insurance companies and how they work and everything.

But with the knowledge and information that Mark Houser equipped me with I was able to double my parents claim. When word got out about what I was doing before I even got a chance to even think about being a public adjuster or doing anything towards that nature I already had contacts from friends and referrals from what they heard about what I did with my parents place.

And ever since then it has just been a race moving to learn and get as much knowledge or information as I can to forward to the next steps.

Every time I call mark he is always there, always picking up the phone, always answering whatever possible question I could possibly ask.  No matter has crazy it might sound he always gives a good answer for it.

I just don't know where I would be without Mark Houser, he is just a god send. A real helpful person. And made me change fields and go directly into public adjusting and this is all I want to do with all the information that he has, no need to reinvent the wheel.

He has it all laid out there for you guys. Once again thank you Mark for everything that you've done.

The program has worked very well... We were successful in implementing our first cracked rafter claim.

Essentially what the program has allowed me to do is negotiate with the insurance adjusters and really take control of the whole adjuster meeting. The adjusters here that we work with have come to know that we know what we are talking about and respect our figures and everything else...

The program has provided me with much of that knowledge and definitely the knowledge in how to inspect and where to go for the resources to make sure we can implement the claim properly...

And if I were to say anything to anybody that is getting into this business, it's a great program, very reasonably priced.

The most important advice I would give anybody getting into this business is that you have to get by the first knoll and erase from your mentality that the insurance company is the authority. You have to be the authority when negotiating with the insurance company.

This program teaches you and allows a person to understand how to become that authority.

So if it were me getting into this business again and again I would say this program was the best piece of information or source or resource that allows me to negotiate day in and day out with insurance adjusters...

And then beyond that is the ability to call and get some one on one consultation or backup... is this correct is this not correct.

Overall can't beat the program.

I felt that it was a good blueprint for me to follow to start my business. I went out on my own so I had some experience but didn't have the overall experience.  I have used it as a tool, I've thrown in some of my own stuff but I have used it as my blueprint to help me establish and understand the process from start to finish.

I think and what I really liked about you mark from the beginning is you where brutally honest, you know it was like a father and son type thing, like "Did you do this?" no. "Why not? you know you should do it that way". And repetition and hearing it a lot you just start doing it that way.  I think that is important, and not just sugar coating things and saying oh that is ok, don't do it next time. No! "Why didn't you do that? you should of done that."

You showed me the things I needed to learn and that was really important to me and helpful to me in gaining my confidence and preparing myself for the next claim.

I think for me it was a combination of both the information and being able to get answers when I needed them. I think it was important to have the site and be able to go out there day or night any time I'm connected to the internet, to go out and look for an answer or an answer to a question, even if it is in the middle of the night. But on the same token, it was really important to me to pick up the phone and call you as well and have that one on one conversation and pick your brain and ask you question and you come back at me with things. I think having both made it very powerful tool for me. And then as well with being able to reach out to other members of the organization and picking their brain on things and building relationships with others.

It feels great making 6 figures. I started my company right around 3 years ago (this was said about 2 years ago) . We have been very fortunate with some of the big storms that have come through, notably hurricane sandy but we also do a lot of daily claims and don't need to depend on the big storms to come through. I mean I like the big storms but I don't need to depend on them, I think growing the business thru daily claims is also very important. The income last year was phenomenal. We did a significant amount of business last year.

I think it is important that you have to look at it as an investment in yourself. If you where to start any type of business you have to make an investment. And you know to me this is a very small investment for a very large opportunity. And you get access to a wealth of information, to a public adjuster community within the association, and access to mark and his team. I believe if it is something your looking into or have interest in or maybe have some background in it is definitely something you should take seriously and give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.
