Weekly Agent Spotlight - Paige Lohmueller
This week's Spotlighted agent Paige Lohmueller was nominated by an agent in her agency!
Paige is currently 53rd in the company with $212,913 in IP production!
We spoke with Paige to get some insight on her goals and managing her agency:
When did you start building your agency and what does your hiring process look like?
"I barely had an agency last year! I'd say late 2018 is when we started to focus on hiring and it really started to grow. My husband Freddie and I work as a team. He handles the initial interviewing, and I start working with them once they're in the contracting stage. I've also been fortunate enough to get advice from Dom, Athena, and John in how to manage my agency."
What do you believe are the keys to getting a new agent started quickly?:
"I think you have to try and make the process as easy as possible for the new agent. I do this by first making sure that I'm always available by phone for them. I let them know that they don't have to spend hours memorizing product information. All they have to do is call me when they're in the field and I'll walk them through it. I try to empower them in any way that I can."
How do you know which agents to spend time with and which ones to leave alone?
"That's pretty easy because they identify themselves. The ones that call me everyday sometimes multiple times a day are the ones I focus on. They show me through their effort that they are serious about this opportunity.
What is your goal for 2019?
"I would like to issue pay $300,000 personally and have an agency doing $175,000."
