    Sentence construction

    Is it polite and correct to say: "I'll have you speak to one of our representatives."?

    No. "I'll have one of our representatives speak to you."

    Re: Sentence construction

    Welcome, Joseph.

    You could also say 'I'll transfer you to one of our representatives'.

    Please note that a better thread title would have been I'll have you speak...

    Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed. (Avoid phrases like "HELP!", "Urgent!", "translation please", "how do I say this", "I'm new" and similar expressions.)
