Quotes from employee nominations

No agency I have ever worked for has had the leadership Mackoul does

I am not a number here; I am a valued asset, and I am reminded of that daily.

I truly have never felt so appreciated at a job before. Your work is recognized, you feel empowered to do your best and people are always willing to jump in to help. The culture of this agency is truly one of a family.

Gold Winner

National Church Group Insurance Agency
Leesburg, VA

We started just selling insurance to churches one-by-one. I say 'we,' it was me by myself. I eventually had enough money to hire somebody to answer the phone, and that became 'we.' And it grew from there.

Quotes from employee nominations

Agents are provided an opportunity to earn large six-figure salaries while working from home and are provided base salaries to build a career from the start, without the month-to-month worry about commissions.

What I like about our agency is that they're always looking to improve or better themselves in whatever way is needed; no one's perfect and seeing the agency always strive to be better makes me proud.
