I just walked away from Farmers this week. I'm lost!! I've had reservations from the start. I tried to make it work, but I just couldn't get going. Farmers stopped writing fire policies in my area (or charged an arm and a leg for them), but insisted I keep writing. Okay where am I going to get clients? My company is in the tier 1 area of Southeast Texas. Where do I go to sign up insurers. I'm trying to sign up with some. How do get started? Where do I start?

How large was your Farmers Agency?

The best way to get into being an IA is to be a producer for about 6-12 months. THis will also give you time to let your no-compete contract expire. When that time is up you will have met with marketing reps from a few different companies for traning and will know them on a first name basis if you decide in the future to start your own agency.

I was a Farmers agent up until Dec 2006 and currently work as a producer for a Farmers Agent. I don't remember signing a do not compete clause. Can you tell me if all agent s need to sign this? Can I be an independent agent or possibly work for Allstate if I choose to?
