Adjuster Talk's Podcast


It can be challenging to please customers who have recently faced the loss or damage of their property, but fast action and precision is key to making sure they iron out the issues all together, resulting in complete satisfaction. Most companies need some help balancing their pile of customer cases. That’s why it’s important to partner with an insurance company adjuster who understands the importance of prompt, efficient adjustments. All these issues and more are discussed here at Adjuster Talk's Podcast with industry leaders.

Nov 1, 2018

Jordan Cox is a 31-year-old former painting contractor who ran a successful painting company based in Greenwood, South Carolina for seven years. As he got older, he began to realize the hardship and stress that his career placed on his body and decided to pivot his career. He began working as an independent insurance adjuster shortly after Hurricane Irma devastated Florida in 2017.

Jordan joins me today to discuss what inspired him to pivot his career from being a successful painting company owner to becoming an independent insurance adjuster. He shares how he got started and how helping his father in the fix and flip real estate industry as a young boy helped him learn many of the skills he needed to become a successful insurance adjuster. He also shares what it was like to work his first claim, the importance of being able to make quick decisions, and the importance of being disciplined in managing your time and money.
