Somebody needs insurance. Somebody needs a mortgage. Somebody needs a personal loan, we do small business loans…our hands our in all the cookie jars” – Jeff Hogue

  • “Why do people stay with us? Well, a lot of people can find systems that really make them successful. That would be number one. But number two is just in today’s world, people are going to the internet first to find insurance. So, if you’re not trying to capture that market, you are losing a big portion of it.” – Jeff Hogue
