IR Agent Success Stories

IR Agents love what they do, and they show it in every interaction. See the IR difference in action as our agents work hard to provide the best in service, one customer at a time.

Starting the agency from scratch was challenging, but with IR’s support, I grew my book of business within a few years and have earned several prestigious sales awards and incentive trips.


The IR-Agent Relationship

What we need

A good insurance agent knows more than how to sell an insurance policy. Our agents have a customer-first focus. That means they understand their customers’ needs and potential risks, and take the time to explain the coverage options.

As an IR Agent, you’ll also manage your own business, meet sales goals and provide quality customer service. Keep in mind that you’ll need current insurance licenses (if you don’t already have them) and a detailed business plan.


You have excellent communication and relationship skills. You know how to present information effectively and influence others. You’re a natural problem solver.


You’re enthusiastic, determined and innovative. You’re always looking for ways to help your customers and grow your business. You’re well suited for sales and management.


You’re an entrepreneur or aspiring to be one. You’re willing to broaden your knowledge of business and the insurance industry through ongoing professional education and training.
