Tweetable Quotes:

  • “The first thing is knowing what your business is doing and whether you need to sell commercial lines with companies and contacts, or whether you can get away with personal lines and just work with a CRM that doesn’t do companies.” – David Lefevre
  • “This is a great computer that you can do a lot with. Obviously you want it to work with the CRM and be able to maintain all the information you need about your prospects, leads, and clients.” – David Lefevre
  • “Always lead by example because agents see owners or lead producers who are running a team. If you’re not doing what you’re asking your people to do, it’s really discouraging. They may go in and look at a company or a contact and they’re gonna see that you’re not doing what you are asking them to do.” – David Lefevre
