    Hello Everyone,

    This is my first time visiting this forum and I must say after reading a few posts, I just had to join and absorb some of this excellent knowledge that is being shared.

    A little about me...I've been an Agent for 2.5 years here in Arizona. I started out with Bankers Life & Casualty & now with Great American Senior Benefits.

    I really look forward to growing and sharing with you all!

    Thanks,

    New Agency

    I have been in the busines now for about 11 years. I use to work for an independant agency and now I work for a captive company as a CSR. I want to open my own Independant Agency. Does anyone have any advice on the first steps to do this? I am thinking, purchase an office space, get appointed with as many companies as I can and start selling?

    Get appointed first and start selling. Worry about an office space once you have been established.

    Wow senior-advisor-indiana, you are absolutely correct! Our office here in AZ has 7 agents who were previously with Bankers. My move had to do with Management & alot of my submitted business being declined. The next move for me seems to be coming very soon...but I'll ask you Veterans for advice before I decide to exit (New Thread).
