We simply need look at the title “Service Advisor” to get a clear understanding that this job is to advise every single guest about all of the services needed to repair and maintain their…See More

Not everyone gets approved for DealerELITE. To maintain the integrity of DealerELITE, tell us what you will have to offer once a dealerELITE member?
I have performed Service Advisor training in hundreds of drives across the country at an individual and corporate level for over 21 years. Having my own company gives me the opportunity to create new innovative training every day. Our online sessions are the most relevant and interesting! My goal has been to provide coaching, critiquing and encouragement to Advisors and Managers, in a way that guides them to become successful profitable professionals. My experience also includes duties as a Service Manager for an Import dealer in Florida and I have been fortunate enough to have many articles published in trade magazines including Fixed Ops, BMW Newsletters and the GM Chronicles.
