Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

CORE Solutions Group, LLC. is soliciting hundreds of dollars for a business opportunity. I am unable to find any third party information on the business. I have spoken with 2 people, Don Gardner and Kendra Peltch at Core Solutions Gruop LLC in Troy Michigan. I liked the idea of what they were offering, However, I couldn't get past the fact that there is NO third party information to validate this business. I asked Don and Kendra to speak with people currently working with the company and I asked them to show me who they are through the BBB or anywhere they are registered. They told me they would get back to me with the information and that it was not a problem. They contacted me more than once to collect the fees for their business opportunity but did not give me the information I requested. They told me they have been in business for several years. Also, their website says they are part of the Green Building Council. I searched for them on the Green Building Council website but they don't come up on the company search tool?? I am writing this to warn anyone looking at this opportunity to be aware.

Just the Facts

AUTHOR: L. - (U.S.A.)

First, I never put Core Solutions under "criminals wanted." It appears to be the default category for the original complaint.

Second, I would like to add that no one from Core Solutions, answered my very simplequestions until it seems that this rip off report started having an adverse affect on their ability for Core Solutions to sell themselves.

In their defense, Terry Judge, President & CEO of Core Solutions did call me toask if I would take down the original complaint. Heevenwaterdropped the "lawyer" card if I chose not to cooperate.

I told Terry that I only stated the truth about my experience and that I would be happy tohelp if I could review third party validation that the company existed as they said it did.Again, Ididn't hearback.

Originally,I was not able to verify Core Solutionsaddress shown on the website,orthat Core Solutions was a registered business (in Michigan or anywhere else), or that that Core Solutions was amember of the Green Building Council as they stated on their website.

Core Solutions might think ithas rectified the image problem by vaildating who they are through legitimate third party sources, however, when you click through the link supplied by Kendra to do just this, you will see that their business is registered to a residents (actually Terry Judges' personal address)and not the business complex address they use on their website. I am not sure why but it seems if you have been a valid LLC, you would use your valid business address.

Next, the second link Kendra supplied to validate their Green Building Council membership is inactive. Therefore, as I previously stated, I still cannot validate their membership.

I was asking simple basic valid questions and thought if I couldn't get answers, I should share my experience in the hopes that anyone else looking at their opportunity would be forewarned and do their homework.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

a common sense solution

AUTHOR: masterrenewable - (United States of America)

I agree with whatyour company is doing. But It is suspicious to ask for money for a job, as all the thousands of job postings asking for money, but never providing information, until you pay them a fee. Your's is one of the only that I have seen that will reimburse the initial fee. I have been a victim with other companies doing the same thing. Only to keep getting call's from a call center asking for money, but still no information being provided to me. It is very harrassing.

Although, believing in your business makes aowner defensive. The right solution would be for you to state that you would provide this person with the information requested, and apologize for any possible misunderstanding (if it was even attempted by the person making the complaint). You did say in your reply that any information can and will be provided. I have to believe you, but you might have to understand that this may have happened to the person. With customer and employee service, you have to make the option for correction, if a mistake was even made by your company. I'm not saying to admit guilt, but at least offer a solution to the person making the complaint.

I wish you good luck with your business. Just thought I would point out to you of what I noticed in this thread. This person could be a competitor trying to make you look bad or maybe not. This is the problem with sites like this one. Again, I read about your busines, and think the idea is excellent!

The TRUTH About Core Solutions Group, LLC

AUTHOR: Kendra Pelch - (USA)

Core Solutions Group, LLC one of the nation's leading tax recovery consulting firms specializing in engineering based cost segregation, research & development tax credits, energy efficiency studies and property tax recovery. We are recognized and respected in our field and by no means are we a "rip-off".


We work with individual Sales Representative with outstanding expertise. Not everyone qualifies to work with our organization. We do not have any negative listings with local or national BBB's. We spend our time focused on our industry and clients, not on providing information on the whim of every potential Sales Representative that wishes to work with us.


Our Channel Partner program is highly competitive and very profitable. To become a Channel Partner a sales representative must complete a thorough interview process and pass several qualifications.
Upon completing this portion of our interview process and prior to training a Channel Partner must provide an enrollment fee of $375.00. This fee offsets a portion of the cost that Core invests to provide a certification course, training materials, marketing materials, email and phone setup and extensive and one on one training/ongoing coaching program with a nationally recognized leader in Sales and Marketing Coaching. Once a Channel Partner completes their first engagement the $375 enrollment fee is refunded to them with their first commission payout.


Unfortunately, not all interested parties take the time to familiarize themselves with our organization and process completely. We are listed with the Green Building Council as well as the State of Michigan Incorporation website. (Links provided below.) I contacted the Green Building Council myself to inquire why our name does not appear when searched on their website. They indicated that you must search for our name specifically as it appears within their database (CSG) and even then not all companies will appear depending on the individual company renewal date and when the renewal fee was processed. These links are provided to any and all interested parties along with a brochure detailing our organization what we do and how we do it.


We are not happy that someone felt they did not receive the information or treatment that they deserve with our organization. However, we are in no way attempting to mislead or misrepresent who we are or what we do. All individuals interested in our organization are encouraged to research us, contact current or previous
Partners and ask any questions they wish.


I personally find it ridiculous that anyone without cause can post something as outlandish as listing our organization under "Wanted Criminals" This is a far stretch indeed.


If anyone has questions about Core Solutions Group, I will be more than happy to assist them in any way that I can.
