Here’s what our all-star agents have in common.

They Know Their Stuff

As a Farm Bureau agent, it’s important to be educated about the industry. Agents should know the lingo, the rules and the ethics to win the game. Farm Bureau agents never take shortcuts, and they are guided by ethical conduct. They know the ins and outs of insurance and how they can best help their community. Agents are available to answer even the most detailed questions their client/members might have.

Pro tip: New to insurance? Not to worry! The ongoing training provided by Farm Bureau will get you up to speed.

They Get Their Heads in the Game

Farm Bureau agents keep going, even when they've worked hard all day. Their never-give-up attitude is what makes them so successful. It’s important to stay focused on goals and work hard to achieve them.

They Get Back on Their Feet

Even when they’re down a few runs, Farm Bureau agents never give up on their client/members. When a large storm goes through a town, our agents manage multiple claims for multiple client/members, even when dealing with damages of their own. Client/members look to their Farm Bureau agents to help bounce back when disaster strikes.

Pro tip: If you face a setback, lean on your teammates for helpful tips and advice.

They Are Self-Starters

It’s not enough to just be a player in the game; Farm Bureau agents are also cheerleaders, coaches and their own biggest fans. Running your own business takes a lot of work, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Farm Bureau agents can set their own hours and make their own rules.

They Keep Their Cool

When things get crazy, Farm Bureau agents keep a cool head and focus on what needs to be done to win the game. Even when a crisis is imminent, Farm Bureau agents are prepared with knowledge and the right paperwork to get the job done.

Pro tip: Always do your research as you prepare for client/member meetings so you’re ready to knock them out of the park.

They Are Confident

Farm Bureau agents stand up for themselves to create and keep relationships with client/members. They aren't afraid to talk to strangers, and they have a knack for making friends. Farm Bureau agents use their insurance education and knowledge as they talk to people about how insurance products can benefit them in the long run.

They Work Hard

You can’t win the game by watching! Farm Bureau agents jump in and work hard to come out on top. They don’t stop when the road gets rough. Agents strive to do a job well-done for every single client/member, and they often go above and beyond what is expected.
