    Hello,

    Do you know where I can apply for a direct appointment with Allstate, Nationwide and AAA in Michigan?

    I would start at each of their websites, most carriers will have a "become an agent" or similar and that usually gets you in front of a marketing representative for the territory you are in. For instance, I just looked on Nationwide, and here is a link to their "Become an agent" page.

    I can't speak for Michigan, but here in California, you can get an appointment with Nationwide, but to get appointed with AAA or Allstate, you have to become a captive agent for only them. Same with Farmers and State Farm. But, again, that's California.

    RIGHT!

    Yeah it's really different everywhere, I know in Colorado I can get a direct appointment with Allstate, but only if there isn't another Allstate PL producer within a mile of my office. In Michigan, it could be completely different.

    I'm just going to point out that this is a completely unrelated reference and use of the word appointment.

    Well, if you decide to hire Tina, you don't need to bother asking her about he attention to detail or reading comprehension!
