Join Our Team
At Woodhouse, The Timber Frame Company, we work closely with our Regional Project Managers (RPMs) and local Independent Representatives (IRs) to promote our identity as experts in the timber frame market.
As an IR, you benefit from the support of our experienced team of timber frame experts throughout every project. From your first contact with the potential home owner through to the completed home, our team is here for you and your customers.
We value the enthusiasm and skills of our Regional Project Managers and Independent Representatives to forge professional relationships with clients interested in building a Woodhouse timber frame home. Your people skills and expertise are valuable tools in developing relationships with folks who are ready to build now, or hoping to do so in the future.
What’s in it for you?
As an Independent Representative (IR) you have full access to any of the timber frame professionals at our Campus Headquarters. At every stage, you receive our full support and benefit from the expertise of our in-house team.
We offer valuable sales and customer service tools to our IRs, such as our state-of-the-art 3D modeling technology, the service of our architects and designers, plus the only transferrable lifetime warranty in the industry- which is a huge selling point that ensures customer peace of mind. All of our floor plans are designed to be easily customized by clients to meet their unique lifestyles and tastes.
As a Woodhouse Independent Representative, you are provided with high quality sales and marketing materials to use in your own promotions, plus the highest level of support and training from the dedicated staff at our corporate campus.
Responsibilities of a Woodhouse Independent Representative:
Business Plan – Working with your Woodhouse Regional Project Manager, you will create a business plan for your territory outlining the actions you and Woodhouse will be taking to meet your standard business objectives.
Set and Meet Sales Goals – When composing your business plan, and each year after that, you and your Regional Project Manager will agree on sales targets for the next three years.
Territory – Depending on the local market, a typical Woodhouse territory would encompass the area within a one-hour drive radius.
Training – Within the first year as an independent representative you will attend a 3-day training program at the Woodhouse main campus.
Communication – Regular (depending on the volume of business) meetings with your Regional Project Manager assure that you are an integral member of the Woodhouse team.
Networking – Developing relationships with building professionals who can execute your customers’ builds within your territory is critical to your success.
Annual Sales Meeting – You will attend the Woodhouse annual sales meeting for updated training and to share your successes with other Woodhouse Independent Representatives.
Website and SEO – The core of your promotional efforts will be your own website dedicated to the selling of Woodhouse products and services and “search engine optimized” by an SEO professional.
Promotion – Other promotional efforts include print advertising and open house/frame raisings – all supported by the Woodhouse co-operative advertising program.
Model Home – Although not required, the ultimate selling tool.
Lead Management – Leads generated by your own promotional efforts as well as the Woodhouse website and national advertising are jointly managed by you and your Regional Project Manager.
