ESNH Part 3: Sales & Marketing (Kanata) with Andy Oding @ Best Western Kanata
Nov 14 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Don’t miss the ultimate sales & marketing training for high performance home builders

It’s a world where sales transactions take place rapidly, information is gleaned online at a blinding speed, and energy efficiency is not top-of-mind with consumers. So how do the qualities of an ENERGY STAR® home change the game for sales and marketing teams?

There’s no question an ENERGY STAR® home is more efficient, comfortable and reliable than one built to minimum building code standards. Industry expert Andy Oding tackles the challenge of how to successfully communicate this to purchasers.

Discover why thousands use the ENERGY STAR® training series to build better homes, gain a reputation as exceptional builders, increase customer satisfaction, and prevent post-construction call-backs and other deficiencies.
