“We try every year to take the win for the Foundation Fiesta trips! We were certainly surprised to win [last year] but had high hopes of an amazing lead in approved funding."
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “I couldn't possibly choose just one favorite part of the Fiesta. Bermuda, the accommodations and the planned excursions were all life-changing experiences. I would highly recommend other dealers step up their games to qualify for future Fiestas!”
Lauren’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “Give as many of your deals to Foundation as possible, it's more than worth it!”
Lauren Rosenheim, Summit Home Remodeling
“Anytime I see a new competition for the Foundation Fiesta trip, I definitely make an effort to be at the top of the list of contenders. Thankfully, Foundation has great financing options that make it easy for me to offer a great deal to any homeowner in need of financing.
I was nervous about my position, but [Foundation] kept me up to date on where I stood and how much I needed to stay in the running. I was surprised we did as well as we had, but I knew we had a good shot since we were coming off some great months of sales.”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “My favorite part was being able to enjoy a really amazing trip with fun people. There is a real emphasis on having fun while on the trip, and I’m always thankful that the conversations aren’t centered around work. Actually, the fact that it isn’t work focused makes me want to work with Foundation more in order to enjoy more of these getaways, and I would definitely recommend that other dealers work to qualify for these trips. It’s a great way to interact and network in a casual and laidback setting.”
Ryan’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “Send as many jobs as you can to be reviewed by Foundation. I am constantly surprised by how much Foundation buys jobs that other lenders will deny, and all with very little stipulation requirements. For us it’s a no-brainer: if we’re having trouble trying to get a deal bought, Foundation is our best option.”
Ryan Camacho, RBA Texas
“We were surprised that we were winners [last year] and fortunate to have been a previous winner. I would encourage everyone to do what it takes to win this trip! From the food to the activities, everything is first class! This is something you don't want to miss.”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “Our favorite part was spending time getting to know some of the other dealers and sharing ideas. My wife and I also enjoyed getting to know our friends at Foundation Finance a little better. [Foundation] put in so much work to make this an incredible experience.”
Jake Anglin, RainSoft by American Home Design
“We were absolutely surprised to win! I did my best with submitting my deals so I could get entered. You guys were so much fun on my 1st trip that I really wanted another one. It's not even trying when you’re submitting to Foundation because they have great rates and terms for my customers. Also, the dealer service is amazing whenever I need help.”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “I really like [the Foundation team]—all are great, down to earth people that made me and my husband feel so welcome to your group. Yes, I would recommend others try harder, but the competitive side of me says to keep it a secret. LOL!”
Melissa’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “Submit, submit, submit. I have been surprised sometimes that things get approved when I had doubts.”
Melissa Bumpus, Waterproofing Toledo
“I’m always surprised to win because I don’t know how others are doing. But, I’m always game for a contest I think I have a chance to win. I highly recommend getting involved in this one.”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “I always enjoy meeting new people, catching up with the group you’ve met before [if you’ve won before] and spending time with the people of Foundation. It’s always top notch and enjoyable!”
Mike’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “Decide to get the sales team engaged by having an internal contest like [Culligan] does, and then go for it!”
Mike Gaeta, Culligan Water
“We strive each year to win the Fiesta because with each one that we have won, we have had the most amazing trips. It's not just the destinations but the fun things that have been planned during the destinations. We feel that Foundation goes above and beyond for dealers by holding this contest! We adore the people we have shared these experiences with and would highly recommend it!”
Michelle Connolly, HQW Kansas City
“I was not shocked to hear that I had won a trip. I know Woodbridge submits enough volume each month to always make us one of the top dealers. Even though I had a good idea…it's still always exciting to hear the news!”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “My favorite part of trip (besides hanging out with Foundation Finance) was meeting all the amazing people in the Home Improvement/Water Softener industry. The trip was amazing, food was good, scenery was awesome. Great memories for sure.”
Todd’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “May the best Women or Man win!!! It’s not easy, so make sure to keep up with approvals and track your fundings. I am shooting for 12 to 15 million funded in that 90-day time frame!!! So other dealers better bring it!!”
Todd Kirkland, Woodbridge Home Exteriors
“We had won Fiestas in the past, so we knew we had a good chance [last year], but it’s always a great surprise to take the win!”
Flashback to Foundation Fiesta 6: “My favorite part was talking with other dealers and enjoying the nightly dinners with everyone.”
Kasie’s advice for other dealers competing for Fiesta 7: “Keep trying--it is always an amazing time and it is a nice time to get away and relax and not think about work!”
