Restoration Estimating and Negotiating 


*** Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this class is only available via Livestream until further notice***

Instructors: Jeremy Reets and Nick Sharp

One of the top concerns that we get from restoration contractors is how to charge for services.  It’s not an easy question.  We have spent considerable time producing an estimating course that addresses the issues restorers face and now that course is here!

This is specifically a residential mitigation estimating course.  This course is not a training course for Xactimate or any other estimating system.  They have their own training courses that show you how to use their programs.  This course starts where they stop.  There is a combination of lecture and hands-on workshops to teach students how to estimate restoration projects.

You should expect the average collected amount on your invoices to increase after attending this Restoration Estimating Course.  Students learn to focus on minimizing the difference between the amount of the first estimate delivered and the collected amount.

The instructors of this course are Jeremy Reets and Nick Sharp.  Jeremy has been in restoration for over 20 years.  He has committed himself to making sure that his company gets paid a full and fair price for the services they render. Nick is the lead estimator in the restoration company Jeremy runs.  He prepares nearly a thousand estimates a year and he is an expert at getting the details right so that those estimates get collected.  Jeremy and Nick are going to share not only tips and tricks but solid processes that help you get estimates done right everyday.

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

Course is $1095

Class is from 8-5pm the first day and 7-4pm on the second day for your traveling convenience.
