Who we are defines what we do, and we're good. Really good.
Reahard & Associates is a customer-driven F&I training company that believes today we cannot merely satisfy customers; we must instead strive to delight customers. Our objective is never to get F&I managers to sell more of “our” product, because we don’t sell any F&I products. Our only objective is to help increase F&I department income and delight customers!

Reahard, that “you succeed in life by helping other people become successful.” In Ron’s own words, “Continuously improving your ability to help customers is the key to the growth and profitability of any organization.”
