Restoration Estimating and Negotiating Combo


Supplies to bring:

  • Laptop: For the Xactimate portion of the course, Xactimate will need to be on your laptop
  • Tablet (Highly Recommended): If you have Xactimate Mobile please bring the tablet that it is installed on
  • A Completed Estimate: Any completed estimate is fine, we will review this during class


In our Restoration Estimating and Negotiating combo course, we’ve combined our highly acclaimed Restoration Estimating and Negotiating course with our newest Xactimate training course.

But don’t be fooled! While you will learn how to use Xactimate, this class isn’t just to prepare you for an Xactimate certification. Instead, it will equip you to successfully estimate in the REAL WORLD.

Join us at Reets Drying Academy for 4 days to learn best mitigation estimating practices when using Xactimate.

On Day 1 & 2: We will start with the basics of using and getting comfortable with Xactimate. Learn how to sketch in Xactimate in the most efficient ways. This includes sketching from a desk when you’ve never been on site or if you are going to the home. Then do a deep dive into the line items. What do line items mean? When should you use certain line items? How do you justify line items using Xactimate? What fully justifiable line items might you not know you can charge for?

On Day 3 & 4: We will address one of the top concerns that restoration contractors face: how to charge for services. This portion of the course builds on the previous 2 days of Xactimate training and will teach how to focus on minimizing the difference between the amount of the first estimate delivered and the collected amount.  The instructors, Jeremy Reets and Nick Sharp will also share not only tips and tricks but solid processes that help get estimates done right every day.

How much difference will understanding and confidence in your estimating process make to your bottom line?  Attend the Reets Drying Academy Restoration Estimating and Negotiating Combo Course and find out!

WARNING: Average collected amount on invoices are expected to increase after attending this class


Course can be broken up into JUST the Xactimate portion OR JUST the Estimating & Negotiating portion.
