From Auto and Homeowners insurance to annuities and Life insurance, you can give your customers what they want and - more important - what they need for their current situations and their future dreams.
The Farmers brand name has come to be synonymous with top-quality insurance and financial products as well as excellent customer service. Your association with Farmers puts you in an exclusive group of reputable insurance and financial professionals - a feat that many business owners have to struggle for years to accomplish.
At Farmers, you're in business for yourself - but not by yourself. You have freedom as an entrepreneur, but can lean on the strength of one of the world's most established group of insurance companies - Farmers® Insurance Group. You also have help from a local district manager and corporate personnel. Farmers provides continual support in technology, customer service, marketing and education. With Farmers, we work together for your success.
Farmers Insurance Group is built on a long history of landmark achievements and dedication of service to our customers. Today, we're the third-largest Property and Casualty insurer in the country.
For someone with drive and ambition, becoming a Farmers agent provides a unique opportunity to incorporate a variety of roles into one career. Farmers agents are not only sales people, but independent business people, counselors, insurance advisors, and can take the next step in their career to become a financial services professional through Farmers' exclusive broker dealer, Farmers Financial Solutions, LLC. This is a career in which you can capitalize on your strengths and fulfill your personal and professional aspirations.
It's important to realize that what we have to offer is a career in the insurance and financial services industry and the opportunity to build your own business. This is not an employee position.
As a Farmers agent, you're an independent contractor in business for yourself, but certainly not by yourself. You'll have the latitude to set your own professional goals and income potential. Your determination and energy will set the boundaries of your earning potential throughout your career.
We recognize our opportunity is not for everyone. That's why we seek out and select the highest quality candidates. For those up to the challenge, Farmers is one of the best entrepreneurial opportunities today.
Starting a business from scratch is tough, so tough that less than 10 percent of all start-up businesses make it past their four-year anniversary. However, Farmers Insurance has a strong success rate with our new agents, thanks to our superior agency support.
As a Farmers agent, you'll receive support in many forms and methods that are designed with your success in mind. From the early training stages, you'll be afforded some of the best hands on instruction in the industry today. You'll also be personally assisted in creating and maintaining your individual marketing systems to drive the growth of your agency and income. We will also assist you financially in the beginning years while your business is just developing.
Supporting you is only one of the keys of success; support for your agency and customers is also critical. That is why we've developed world-class centers to assist your customers' claims and service needs - even during after hours and weekends when you're not in the office. Our support even expends to helping you find and train those essential staff members for your agency's operation.
As a Farmers agent you're in business for yourself but not by yourself.
"As a Center Manager, I enjoy helping my agents succeed and take great pride when they reach their goals. If you become one of our agents, one of my jobs will be to help train and guide you in mastering business techniques designed to help you and your agency succeed, branching out from within our center environment. During my time with the Farmers Career Center, I have had the pleasure of helping many agents reach their goals, and develop their businesses into profitable agencies.
At this time, it is my pleasure to introduce to you one of the successful agents in my district." Tom Eng - Minneapolis , MN
Tom Eng has been a Farmers agent since 1995. Since his first year, he has not only been one of the top agents in my district, but has also consistently been a recipient of the Toppers Club award - recognizing him as being in the top 25% of agents in the company.
As an independent business owner, Tom is dedicated to the success of his Farmers Agency and is passionate about the quality of employees he hires. His commitment to hiring only the best employees, and then educating and empowering them to help his customers, is just one of the reasons Tom has a low employee turnover rate; allowing him to stay focused on growing his agency.
Empowering his employees to assist customers has not only allowed Tom to grow his agency, but it has also allowed him to refine his business skills to not only understand his customer's needs, but also anticipate them. Anticipating his customer's needs has allowed Tom to build a close and trusted relationship between his clients and his agency.
Tom has unrelenting dedication to customer service. Tom's concept of customer service and community involvement is important to Tom - and a cornerstone of his agency. His success as a Farmers agent has allowed him to give back to the community where he lives and works. In addition, Tom is also a board member of the local Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) - where he takes continuing education programs to further his business and personal goals. The friends and relationships Tom has built within these organizations, is just another example as to why I selected Tom as this month's "Profile of Success."
I look forward to the possibility of working with you in the future. With my assistance and guidance, who knows, maybe I will be highlighting you as a "Profile of Success!"
business for yourself but not by yourself.
Patricia Kelly, Agent - Santa Ana, California
I can't say enough about how Farmers Insurance changed my life. My husband and I have been w/Farmers for more than 20 years. It gave us a wonderful lifestyle and most of all the opportunity to give our clients an intimate level of service. Farmers gave us no limits as to how much we wanted our agency to grow.
Ron Henderson, Agent - Palm Desert, California
Farmers has helped me create a lifestyle I could have only dreamed about. The success I have achieved with farmers allows me to have the flexibility and resources to fully enjoy my family and community. I really don't think I could have the success I've achieved anywhere else.
Cindy Vance, Agent - Sussex, Wisconsin
I chose Farmers for independence, unlimited income potential, and to be my own boss. In my previous position, I was limited in income and had little freedom. I now have made more money than I could have ever imagined, and I have the freedom to set my own schedule.
Marty Bub, Agent - O'Fallon, Illinois
Anyone can work. Anyone can achieve. But it is those that work and achieve while feeling good about what they are doing that really find satisfaction in their career. I am proud to be affiliated with a strong organization that's focus is the livelihood of those most important to us – our customers. It is that that sets Farmers apart from the rest of the insurance industry.
Bob Mitchel, Agent - Kingwood, Texas
Farmers gave me the opportunity to achieve my self-employment dream and so much more. This career is the most fulfilling work I have ever done. It is rare in life to be able to say that you have made someone's life better. I can go home at night knowing that my client's dreams are protected from the hazards of daily life. The harder you work the more you make, unlike the corporate 'salaried' positions of my past. I would highly recommend this career to anyone who is not afraid to succeed.
