Video #3 goes into running a small car lot. Even though you may never want to run a small car, it IS important to understand how one functions! Trust me on this one. An auto broker is nothing more than a car dealer with an inverted sales model.
Video #4 is a crash course on how to be an auto broker. This is the business model I recommend most! I hear, “I learned more the 2nd listen than the first!”. Watch it twice.
Video #5 is truly kick butt. It will teach about the ONE AND ONLY valuation tool you will ever need! You will watch this more than once too!
“Hey George, I would highly recommend your training program for anyone planning to go into this business. Even if you have been in it for a while, it is well worthwhile because you will look with ‘fresh eyes’ and see some things you might have missed otherwise. George presents a fun and informative couple of days, and provides many insights into some of the challenges that will be faced. He will answer all the questions that you have and will bring up things you didn’t think of.
Unless you have been buying and selling vehicles for a living and using auctions to do so, George’s training WILL save you time and money. The cost of the training is easily recovered by the savings in two or three deals, and his organized and focused methods of appraising and evaluating vehicles are consistently revealing.
Above all, George makes it fun and fast-moving. He has not stopped enjoying it and he will get you excited about your new enterprise! Good Luck! Peter W. Robinson Movinmetal, Inc.”
“After the NASDAQ crashed and money got tighter luxury and exotic items were not as profitable so I figured I would learn about the car business properly. I decided to get a job at a dealership that sold the cars I knew about.
I was quite successful at it but its funny, I never got rich but my boss sure did! It seemed like the whole car business consisted of the owner keeping us salespeople as confused, ignorant of the numbers and in the dark as much as the buyers so we couldn’t cough up a good deal even if we wanted to! I learned nothing except how to play a tense game of sales poker and I was ALWAYS bluffing.
The hours were horrible, the competition among salespeople was fierce and surprisingly, the job was addictive.
Needless to say I have been searching for a way to “get serious” and I think I have found it!
I know enough to know that you have truly laid all your cards on the table. You have put into one course the entire world of the car business. IT IS AMAZING!
I have always wanted to get the big picture but no dealer ever wants to give up their piece of the pie easily. Very few guys know it all. They find a niche and stick to it. Most of the time that means they have to work under someone else. The few guys I knew out there who were their own bosses surely didn’t want to tell me HOW EXACTLY they made a living. You have. It says two things…
1) You believe that the business can support many more industrious entrepreneurs
2) You are truly a rare commodity: a man of integrity and confidence in the car business!
Thanks, more soon PHIL – Palm Coast, FL”
“Hi George, Thank you for the excellent quality information I received within your manuals. Certainly the information shared went to the very heart of the matter in helping people get a grip on the used car business.
I studied, highlighted, outlined, and reviewed all the information you shared in order to take to heart and soul the depth of value written.
“I just want to drop you a line and let you know how beneficial your course has been. I have been attending auctions for about 8 weeks now, and the techniques on your video and subsequent audio CD are 100% accurate.
I have watched other dealers and wholesalers preview cars and some of them are using the same techniques. I have gotten to know several dealers and wholesalers, and you are exactly right, these new acquaintances are very helpful in sharing their knowledge of the industry. Some of these folks have actually given me their business card and asked me to give them a call if I had any questions or needed help with a particular issue.
Keep up the good work George!”
“I recently attended George’s “Two Days at the Auction” training, and would like to say that I recommend it to others who are contemplating getting licensed as a dealer. George is very thorough in training you to inspect cars for damage, and to determine if a car is worth bidding on. I came away with confidence that I can go to a local auction, understand the process (and the auctioneers), and buy cars successfully.
George is also a wealth of information about setting up your business process, as well as Internet marketing! He’s a pleasant guy to hang out with too. I enjoyed our time at meals, and of course all the information I received about the business is invaluable. The fried jalapenos were great, and so was the cajun food we had. I’d come back to Dallas just for the food! One word of advice, stay at a hotel that’s relatively close to the auction as opposed to by the airport or somewhere else. Thanks George!” Dennis in California.
I love these weekly tips, and I read every one of them. You really do know exactly what you’re talking about. You probably don’t remember me telling you, but I’ve made all of these mistakes that you talk about. I remember thinking to myself, “Man, how come this isn’t working?” Now, I drive by Dealer lots, and think to myself “He’s not gonna make it. He’s doing it all wrong.”
Last time I wrote you, my plan was to save $10,000 over the course of a year, and then start buying after studying (not just reading, but studying) your material in the interim. Well, that plan has changed. I got the dealer packet just so that I’d have an idea of what I have to do, and here in Colorado – they want you to have (amongst other things) a net worth of $50,000 which I don’t have yet. That’s ok though. I was putting a $1,000 a month away, and after finding that out, I knew that I would have to curbstone to help me get there.
First, I bought an Taurus for $400 that needed a fuel pump, but everything else was clean. It was under 100,000, no cuts, rust, good tires and all that. I had the fuel pump done for $300 (I don’t have a mechanic yet), got it detailed, and sold it for $2,200 in a week.
Next I bought a VW Golf with 111,000 miles (I stay under 115000) for $1000. I put new tires on it, got it detailed, had the alignment done, and put a cheap Stereo in it ($1800 altogether), and sold that for $3,700 two weeks after buying it.
I’m really just saying “Thank You” for the good work. I would have gotten here anyway it goes.
Like you said, “You can either take the 10 + years to learn this all yourself, or pay for the course.” I must say it’s the best $800.00 I’ve ever spent. Thank You again, and keep the tips comin’. They’re good too.”
“It’s Eric, it’s been a while! We recorded the ebay conversation last year. Things have changed a lot in my life and I wanted to say “THANKS!!” and let you know what’s up. I have become partners with the wholesalers that used to charge me $500 per car and handle all the paperwork. Since then, we’ve gone into retail autos and motorcycles, plus custom motorcycles. In the past 10 months we have had $2.5 million in sales and a net profit of over $300k. I have helped them expand sales in new areas including ebay, plus making the move to retail. We continue to find new and creative ways to sell cars, plus as a team we compliment each other well. We have a purchaser, a mechanic, and internet sales, and we all overlap to some extent.
George, I honestly would not be where I am today without your program. When we talked I thought I was making big money, but it came and went. This is sustainable and growing … and FUN!
All my best to you, let me know if I can help you in any way as a thank you.”
