– Brian Somers, Producer, Goodman Insurance
“Charles has been a great help and inspiration during the last 6 months. I’ve been a producer for 30 years and although I’m making a good living, I was looking for more consultancy and a proven sales process. He’s helped me implement a tracking system and given me sales tools from prospecting and qualifying to marketing and closing. In fact, I closed a $500k premium account last month that I’d been chasing since 2007! His real world experience as a producer and consultant gave him better insight on where I need to focus. Charles is legit but he’ll hold you accountable to doing the work, too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and Permission Sales!”
– Alan Smidlein, Senior Account Executive, Adams Insurance Service
“Just wanted to let you know that you’re an amazing speaker and full of charisma. You captivated everybody in the audience and I have had nothing but outstanding feedback. You motivated and gave hope to our staff. The future will change direction with what you shared with us regarding the industry, your experience and your knowledge. We may be looking at a retainer with you. Thanks again, you were the bomb!”
– Andrea Der Manouel, Operations Manager, M.D. Manouel Insurance Agency, Inc.
“As an insurance professional for more than 23 years, I have never met anyone as solid as Charles. He is very transparent and very professional. I have been an agent since 2003 doing the same style and technique over and over again, to a point that I got frustrated because I was expecting different outcomes/results over the years. I have always been consistently persistent, however, I needed better results. When I made a decision to retain the services of Charles, it was a point in my career that I knew I needed a coach. Charles was somebody who opened my eyes to different perspectives and sales techniques. The modules are well written, clear, concise and specific for insurance agents, which I find very helpful. As my coach, he always showed up and reminded me to stay strong, and maintain control which I truly appreciate!”
– Lalaine Latimer, Principal, Mainstream Insurance Services, LLC
“Being in the insurance business for over 15 years, I found my sales approach getting stale and starting to feel frustrated with my results. Over the past few months of working with Charles and using his innovative techniques to selling insurance, I have found my enthusiasm has returned to my presentations and as a result closing more deals. I would highly recommend if you need to recharge your sales staff and improve your results, do not hesitate to consult with Charles.”
– Lou Klein, Producer, Dabelgott Insurance Services, Inc.
“If you are thinking of hiring Charles you should do it immediately. This guy is the real deal. I have been in the insurance business for over 20 years, attended several sales and marketing workshops, have read numerous training books, but nothing compares to the information and ideas shared by Charles. My staff and I learned a lot and we’re implementing the Broker of Record Letter material and growing our insurance agency beyond what we thought possible before his training.”
– Olu Adesuyan, Principal, Cal Society Insurance Services, Inc.
“When I started out as an insurance producer, I didn’t know who to call, what to say, or even what niche to target for myself. Charles worked very closely with me to determine and develop my micro niche, and gave me tips on scripting and how to overcome obstacles when cold-calling and email marketing. This helped me tremendously and provided me with both the tools and the confidence I needed to achieve the level of success I wanted for myself.”
– Derrick Fritz, Farmers Insurance Group
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Charles in the capacity of an insurance/business consultant, at an agency level. Charles was brought in to help the agency in developing new strategies, bringing creative ideas to the table, and helping to streamline efficiencies for assisting in increasing sales, retaining clients, and growing the agency. His leadership was deemed successful through new marketing & acquisition programs, as well as retention strategies. Charles is a team player, very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely easy to work with.”
– Christy Klein, Independent Agent
“I was a brand new producer in the insurance industry when I first hired Charles. I hired Charles because I had no direction of how to scale myself in such a competitive market. After just a couple of weeks of talking and learning from Charles with Permission Sales, I was able to close my first big deal (a large statewide Nursing Association). Charles will teach you simple strategies that are so effective and will put you miles ahead of the competition. If you are new to the insurance industry and are not sure what to do, or have been in the industry for a while and have come to a halt, you need to hire Charles ASAP. You will not regret it.”
– Caleb Gibson, Independent Life Agent
“When I decided to grow my employee benefit practice I was at a loss as to where to start. I had an outdated website, no direction as to which customer demographic I should focus on and no idea on how to craft my message. Originally I felt very overwhelmed, I didn’t understand all I needed to do and I knew I didn’t have the discipline to stay on track to get these things done. That’s why I hired Charles. Charles helped me identify the services I needed to offer, he helped me create my unique message and he helped me identify an effective way to quickly communicate my message to my target customers. And he held me accountable. I would highly recommend any insurance agent to hire Charles for help with their insurance sales.”
– Kim Dannettel, Principal, KD Benefits & Financial Services, Inc.
“If you’re an aspiring insurance producer, new to the industry or an experienced advisor, and you want to build and retain a $1,000,000 Book of Business, then I would highly recommend Charles Specht and his Millionaire Producer School. After implementing his sales’ techniques in under just 30 days, I completely altered my sales and prospecting approach. Charles has a wealth of knowledge to offer and is willing to share it with those ready to put the work in.”
– Sean Barker, Producer, Clifford & Bradford Insurance Agency
“Charles has helped me manage and focus who I want to target and how to target those future clients. He’s taken the time to listen, ask questions and find out where I want to take my business. Together we have mapped out a plan and roadmap for my future book of business. I would recommend anyone looking for clarity and maybe even a little push should work with Charles. He continues to be a sounding board and mentor. THANK YOU CHARLES!!”
– David Zaycer, Producer, Maccormack Agency
Laura Grabar, CFO, Expert Drywall Systems, Inc.
“Charles has been my main consultant when my company was over 700 employees until now, about 250 employees. He continues to bring good value and I recommend his services without reservation.”
Gino Graziano, CEO, G&G Construction, Inc.
“I first met Mr. Specht when the broker that I had been using decided on specializing in a different area of the business. From the very beginning, Mr. Specht has always been reliable and honest. After doing business with him for several years, I decided on following him when he transitioned over to insurance consulting, and I have never regretted that decision. In my opinion, Mr. Specht is one of the best in the business.”
Lance Smith, CEO, Cold Steel Erectors, Inc.
“I have been very happy with the work Charles Specht has done for me over the years I have known him. He is able to get things done when I need them. Any way you look at it, Charles has been able to get the job done.”
Dan Riley, CEO, Steel Structures, Inc.
“Charles Specht provided me with insight that my insurance broker could not. I had received two seemingly similar policy quotes except one premium was more than triple the other one. Very confused, I reached out to Charles for help. He broke down each quote line by line, he explained the differences and he helped me not only choose the right policy, but also guided me to ask the broker the right questions which resulted in a significant reduction of the premium. I have already recommended him to an investor friend of mine looking for guidance on a huge policy quote he recently received and I would recommend him to anyone else as well.”
Bennett Mason, CEO, Commercial Real Estate Investor
