Biggest mistake you see in the insurance industry:
People are always asking for the cheapest price. Agents who don’t take their profession seriously do not take the time to ask the right questions. An agents duty is to make sure their client is properly insured and is getting the best value for each dollar they spend.
What does exceptional customer service look like to you?
Getting back to a client as soon a possible. That means within minutes or a few hours not days, which is a big complaint I hear from potential clients when they are referred to my agency

Who has been the biggest influence on your career, why?
My father and my wife. My father taught me the value of hard work and the benefits as well as hardships that come from owning your own business. He got me started in my first business at the age of 15. My wife has continued to support me from day one as I started my own insurance agency with zero clients and after more than 25+ years I have over 1,500 loyal clients.
