"An innovator throughout his career, Claude refuses to be limited by traditional ways of thinking. It's an approach that has led him to education, innovation and an unparalleled career in the art of negotiation."
When your agent tells you he's a trained hostage negotiator, you know he's serious about getting results. Determined never to be out-negotiated, Claude Mery has built a career on innovation, education and thinking outside the square. A highly successful protegee of the industry-standard Jenman Sales Training system, Claude's drive to succeed in every interaction has pushed him to investigate unique ways to hone his skills. Now he shares that knowledge with his peers as a highly-regarded sales coach.
Identifying superior negotiation skills as the key ingredient for success at a young age, Claude set himself on a path to become the best negotiator possible. But it wasn't just about acquiring skills and garnering the recognition of his peers. Claude is clear on his mission - attaining mastery of the negotiation table is all about achieving the absolute best result (and best price) for his clients.
It's this trait that has seen Claude achieve recognition as the Buxton Salesperson of the Year three times in his 10 year career with the Group. Awarded on the basis of dollar value of properties sold, the awards are proof-positive that Claude has captured more money, for more clients, than just about any other Buxton agent. But that's not to say that it's only about the sale. Known for his warm and personable ways, Claude's clients are quick to recommend him - not just for the results he has achieved on their behalf, but also for the warmth and understanding he brings to every stage of the sales process.
A natural networker, Claude puts his winning ways to good use with involvement in the global corporate organisation, BNI (Business Network International). Bringing together like-minded professionals, the network is an invaluable resource that introduces Claude, his vendors and their homes to potential buyers from outside the usual channels. For this innovative agent, it's just another way of looking at the world and the marketplace ....and of refusing to be held hostage to the out-dated ideas that limit so many traditional agents.
