Albert Group Landscaping & Swimming Pools - StoneMakers newest Dealer
About two months ago I came across the StoneMakers Company while checking out retaining wall videos on Youtube. I know what you are thinking. What kind of guy watches videos about retaining walls? Well luckily for my customers it's the kind of landscaper that loves what he does that checks out the latest hardscape videos for fun.
At first I was very skeptical of the video and what was being shown. Can it be true? Build a retaining wall out of concrete that looks like natural stone. Does not use forms and is more economical than natural stone. I smelled SCAM but... on the slim chance that something would really be as advertized I filled out some kind of form on the website. Well, the next day I received a call from Dick Conley. Dick was very helpful on the phone and laid out the process of becoming a dealer. He also suggested I do my due diligence and call some dealers and he emailed me the contact info for 6 dealers. Now being skeptical and figuring it was a cherry picked list I was about to stop the process right there. But I was very interested in the product so I asked for a list of every StoneMakers dealer. Dick gladly e-mailed me a list of all the dealers and I began to call them all. I know having been a dealer for many other products that an upset dealer is not shy about their feelings. Well immediately I was receiving a common message.
- The StoneMakers people are great to deal with and will go out of their way to support their dealers.
- The product does everything they say it will.
- When you go to the dealer training get your hands dirty. Do not just watch.
After almost 50 phone calls I was convinced. I talked it over with my wife Varje and we decided to go for it. Due to some scheduling issues I missed the next dealer training event. But I'm here in Dallas Texas now and I've seen it with my own two eyes. I could go on forever with all it can do but if you are interested check out one of the videos that got me interested in the beginning. I will also be adding new video and pictures from the training over the next few days.
