Hickory Hills Camp Resort has been a dedicated client of Gorin+Cohen since 2013. When we signed with Jayne, she assured us we would never pay for her services as an expense. She explained that her recommendations would always make us more money than her consulting fees would cost. Her promise rang true and we have been making great strides with business improvements ever since. Our business has expanded with new construction in the last few years and Jayne’s direction was crucial to our success. Our bank representatives stated that hiring Gorin+Cohen Consulting Group was the best decision we could have made. I whole heartedly agree with them!

Vickie Maxey, Owner, Hickory Hills Camp Resort, Spencer, Indiana

We all agree the level of detail and quality of the report exceeded our expectations. Great job!

David Arrington, Arrington Oil and Gas Operating LLC, Midland, TX

As a 32-year veteran in the RV industry I can attest to the value of a third party, like Gorin+Cohen Consulting Group, and what they can bring to the table. I had the pleasure of working with Jayne Cohen on a new RV park project and the level of detail she and her team provided is exceptional! It’s so nice to work with someone who really knows the industry so well and can relate to the questions and concerns of another industry professional

Terry Munoz, Vice President Recreational Properties Division, Signorelli Companies, The Woodlands, TX

Jayne assisted me with due diligence on a park here in Texas that I had under contract. The property was a challenging puzzle given that it is in a desirable part of Texas and is one of the prettiest parks in the entire state. But it's not making money, so I was assessing a turnaround and the risks associated with that process. Jayne brought expertise to the process in numerous ways, but specifically her understanding of highly amenitized parks, extensive cabin operations, and transient park operations/assumptions. Even though I am an experienced RV park owner, she helped me refine my underwriting assumptions and make the right decision. I call her regularly on my own due diligence, development prospects, and market analysis.

Austin Faught, President, RV Park Management, Austin, TX

I have been working with Jayne Cohen and Gorin+Cohen Consulting Group for many years because they are the premier campground consultants. The knowledge and experience they have is second to none in our industry. Whether they are providing owner operators with operational audits, or buyers and developers with feasibility studies on expansion and development potential, their expertise is invaluable. I regularly refer buyers and sellers to Jayne to assist them with bringing the business to the next level. Both seasoned park operators and those new to the industry will benefit from the level of detail, professionalism, knowledge, and integrity that Jayne and her team offer.

Mia Caetano Johnson, Northeast Campground Brokers

David, your help was the best money we have spent and we would be happy if you were to use us as a reference or we would be thrilled to write a glowing review for your website. You not only laid everything out step by step for us rookies but you gave us great advice and insight to completing our conversion. And you did this knowing we were a much smaller lower income Park than you usually work with. We do realize that you could have charged us much more than what you did and we do really appreciate that. Again, Thank you so much.

Tom & Sally VanOflen - Grand River Landings, Michigan

"I had the pleasure of working with Jayne Cohen recently after a campground acquisition. Jayne's industry knowledge is superb and her ability to efficiently complete assignments is outstanding.

"Over the past year Jayne has helped our resort with numerous issues, including rate setting, improving customer service, managing reviews, hiring of personnel, and other areas on as needed basis. She has been a big help in these areas, and our income has risen in part due to specific help with setting/raising our rates. I highly recommend Jayne and her team to any owners needing a little outside help."

We have been looking to invest in an RV park for over a year now, and have been working with David to guide us with the process.

David Gorin's market study was instrumental in confirming the market dynamics, as well as to gain financing for my project. David's work was first rate, to the point, and punctual. David is very knowledgeable in the RV Park sector and a pleasure to work with.

Bill Harvey, developer of Silver Palms RV Resort, Okeechobee, FL and owner, Cross Creek RV Resort, Arcadia, Florida

The City of Plattsmouth contracted with David Gorin for consulting support as the city considered development of an RV park on property owned by the city. Mr. Gorin's study was exceptionally well done and helped the city in its decision making processes. Subsequent to the feasibility study, the city again contracted with Mr. Gorin for the development and marketing of a Request for Proposals to develop the RV park. Plattsmouth is more than satisfied with Mr. Gorin's work. His industry expertise was very helpful to us.

Erv Portis, City Administrator, Plattsmouth, Nebraska

We engaged David Gorin to give us his assessment on strengths, as well as opportunities to improve and expand our services to our Campers and Residents.

Every observation and suggestion that David provided have been home runs. We considered and implemented some extremely well-directed suggestions for improvements, updates and upgraded services. In addition, David helped us to survey our existing customers, to Beef-up what they liked, and add services that they would like to have.

David is very experienced and seasoned in the RV industry. He has been a "value added" with his consultancy services.

Ken Saundry, Jr. President - Saundry Associates, Inc. - Managers of Holiday Travel Resort, Leesburg, FL

"Having known Jayne a few years I can absolutely say she is on top of tasks! When I recommend her services and expertise she always spends time to understand the situation before contacting the clients. She is very knowledgeable of the industry and is a great help to her clients."

Mary Bedford, President at Parks and Places, Inc., Grand Rapids, MI

I have been wanting to let you know how well we have been doing at the resort. Thanks to your good advice, we have had 7 months in a row of increased revenue. We made the improvements to the park you recommended, and have gone beyond in some cases. Our new website that you advised us on and critiqued us through the process has been really spectacular. Heating the pool for the snowbirds and adding the fire pit have been real winners and everybody loves all the newly installed palm trees throughout the park. We have cut back in the areas you suggested and brought expenses under control. David, we are so grateful for you and your excellent team, and we look forward to you visiting us soon at the new Santa Rosa Rv Resort!

Craig Kruse, Owner, Santa Rosa RV Resort, Navarre, Florida

"Jayne was extremely helpful in the establishment of a formal customer care program for the Campers Inn organization. She consulted with us to provide insight into industry best practices, created customer care center standard operating procedures, and guided us as we launched this new initiative. Her help was instrumental and I highly recommend her professional services."
