Tweetable Quotes:

  • “I think the more educated an agent is, even in the public sector, the better partner they are for us because they realize our value.” – Bob Saville
  • “Most of our local agents, their biggest value added is that they’re local, they know everybody in town, they can relate to the other employees.” – Carson Saville
  • “You better know when the council is voting on this. And it’s not always going before Council, some of your smaller towns and cities might not take a council but at some point, they’ve got to get this in their budget and the city manager’s got to make a decision. So you better have your quotes ready and better have a game plan, or else you’ll miss the boat.” – Carson Saville
