Testmonials

Edde Martinez, Toysmith

Toysmith is proud to have Jeff Garb and Associates as our sales force in the North East region of the U.S. We have been in partnership with JGA for 17 years. I say partnership because we really see it that way. We rely on their relationships with a wide array of accounts, from large retailers to the many local small town retailers. Their network of relationships in the retail industry can be no better. They have established themselves as the premier gift and toy reps in this territory. Every single associate proves to us year after year that they are highly motivated to not only help their customers grow, but help our company grow as well.

John Leclair, Puzzle Me This

Puzzle Me This has had a very productive relationship with Jeff Garb and his sales associates for the past 20 years.  I always sense that Jeff feels my success and his success go hand-in-hand.  Jeff and his staff are very knowledgeable about product; make appropriate recommendations; resolve issues with manufacturers; and keep me up-to-date on the newest products as well as special buying promotions and terms.  I never feel pressured with these folks.  They take the time to learn about my business.  They ask good questions about my business.  They always listen.  Professional, courteous and fun to work with in every respect.  

Liz Staples, Nature Calls/Bonkers

I have worked with Jeff Garb for over 15 years and have come to regard him as a friend as well as a business associate. Jeff stands up for his customers and his manufacturers alike by being fair and reasonable. He is fun to work with and my staff and I look forward to his visits. Jeff knows his lines, knows their programs, deals, and specials, and always tries to accommodate me when I am apprehensive about trying a new line. He is one of the very few reps lately that knows the business really well. It is a pleasure to do business with Jeff. 

Mike Banducci, R&M Distributors

R&M is a distributor on the West Coast. Over the last 15 years, JGA has surpassed all sales expectations and built a commendable base of business. I believe their success is due to their patience and willingness to stay loyal to our company despite several market driven obstacles. They have stayed firmly on message with their customers and overtime, have employed their relationships to steer the category’s business our way. I would say that any company that gets a commitment from JGA to represent their line, would be getting a treasure in terms of their field support and expertise. Hiring JGA was one of the best decisions I could have made. 

Jeff Elsner, Giant Microbes

Jeff Garb and Associates has been one of our top rep groups for many years. They bring excellent sales and relationships with top retail and online accounts as well as other attributes that are rare. Jeff Garb is an expert in the gift industry and creates a partnership like relationship with his manufactures. He is interested in lending his expertise on a myriad of topics including potential new product releases, merchandising, packaging, trends and motivating reps. He is a man of integrity and I highly recommend his organization.
