image of Ron And MissyRon and I had the pleasure of attending one of Barry’s Xactimate training classes last month. Barry did an outstanding job, not only was his class informative and insightful, but his knowledge was very apparent. He walked us through the entire program while effectively teaching to the varying levels of experience throughout the classroom. The attention given to each adjuster went above and beyond our expectations.

Initially, our expectations for the class was to further develop our sketch knowledge. What we took away from the class was so much more. The class taught us how to maximize our time by utilizing shortcuts and time saving techniques, while in turn creating more efficient and accurate estimates. Our estimates will now be more thorough and completed in half the time, we’re not sure how to put a value on this. Many thanks to Barry and Xactware for such a great class.

We would highly recommend one of Barry’s training classes to anyone in the adjusting industry.

While staying busy during low claim volume, I spent some time as a teacher’s assistant for Xactimate training. The school I was helping at started requiring their assistants to be level 3 certified with Xactimate and so I pursued the certification. I had a high regard for my own abilities with the program as I had been using Xactimate in the field for several years, but had a humbling reality check when I failed the level 3 certification exam. Having experienced one of his introductory sessions to Xactimate and receiving his help on some very advanced issues with the program, I contacted my friend Barry Smith. With his help, I was able to achieve the required certification.

Barry was a critical element in my success with Xactimate. Through his knowledge of the program and expertise in the certification exams he was able to expand my understanding and proficiency. Once receiving his tutorial services, I was not only able to pass the level 3 certification exam, I had a new understanding of the covered material and was able to achieve high marks. Once again, Barry’s help was invaluable in not only passing the certification exams, but in my continued proficiency in the field and I highly recommend his services be added to anyone’s arsenal of support.

Thanks Barry,

I met Barry at a class offered to adjusters for improving Xactimate estimating and sketching skills. What I discovered was, Barry Smith is a terrific instructor who cares about his students and makes sure they receive results for their investment in his training.
His abilities and understanding of the Xactimate program are better than any other instructor or adjuster I’ve known.

He has the most wonderful ability to explain the programs capabilities and really make you learn and apply it!

What a delightful professional! Barry is one of the most creative and knowledgeable adjusters/instructors I know – bar none. His values are strong and uncompromising. His unique expertise in adjusting and Xactimate is a rare find to say the least. His career has demonstrated his adaptability as he has successfully transferred and applied his
