One of the nation’s highest-quality manufacturers of replacement windows and doors is looking for a sales representative to sell its products to the trade - to home improvement contractors. If you have experience in business to business sales, an interest in home construction and renovation, and the energy and motivation to be a sales “hunter”, this is a great opportunity to grow your career. My brand-name client can bring tremendous value to architects, contractors, home improvement companies in terms of product variety, delivery, and superb customer service.
Do you realize how many home improvement companies there are – ranging from those with storefronts, to those with large crews and several vehicles, to independents, with one or two trucks? This job is about developing relationships with architects, home improvement companies, and building contractors, and becoming their go-to person when they need to buy windows and doors.
This job presents unusual challenges for the right person, but it also pays well. The job will pay a base salary of $60,000 plus car allowance, commission, bonuses, and benefits. The right candidate will be someone with a stable work history, a track record of success in business to business sales, especially in the home improvement industry, and a four year degree.
You will be responsible for developing prospective customers, using internet research, local newspapers, and driving around. Reach out to contractors by phone and email, and set up meetings at their offices or the company’s stores. After becoming fully knowledgeable about the industry, the products, and the competition, you will conduct take-offs and issue quotes based on blueprints from contractors. You must be a master of follow-up, be very detail oriented, and be focused on providing superb customer-service. Excellent verbal, written, and computer skills are expected.
