    Joe partnered with Kansas City Life in 2009 and has continued his relationship because of the Company’s commitment to the agent, the agency force and general agent.

    “There are a number of reasons why I’d recommend Kansas City Life to a general agent. First off, they have a great product portfolio. When I was looking for a company to partner with, you could have a very good company, but no products. Second, they’re a company that’s not too big. They’re a company that if I need something done, I know exactly what department to go to, who to talk to in that department and it gets done very quickly.”
