Re: Getting in the door.

Excellent information provided. I am a commercial sales manager for a large company and I am constantly asked "How to get in the door". The info provided is exactly right. So many agents try to "do it all" - well who can be an expert in so many tyupes of business and still seem ...

Re: CIC or CRM

Odessian, not sure if it is admirable or crazy (just kidding) to try and accomplish one let alone BOTH in one year. As was previously said, they give you 5 years for a reason. Yes it would be nice to know how long and just what you've been doing in the business before giving a straight answer but i...

Re: Zurich Ins...farmers Ins

I hadn't heard it explained that way. yes the Zurich "small biz" will be taken over by Farmers however I haven't heard anyone but yourself say that the independents would be appointed with Farmers...seems like that would have been mentioned else where. I would think that perhaps Zurich wil...

Re: Ind Agency

I don't know why this is of so much concern to you. As a wholesaler I work with a ton of Farmers agents as clients and most have separate sidebar agencies set up to handle business that Farmers won't write. Its totally not unusual, but it is common sense.....and they run it themselves. I was wonder...
