Venice Fairbanks's Profile and Contact Information
Some years ago, I started my insurance career in Southern California, for a company called American Hardware Mutual Insurance Company. I spent 3 weeks in Minneapolis MN and 2 weeks in Redwood City CA for training. Agents for American Hardware had the reputation as the best trained agents in the country. I was only the 2nd female agent to be hired within this company, so it was a sense of accomplishment and pride that I was hired and given a prime territory to work in. I was able to specialize in all types of Franchised Dealer Markets. I had clients from Auto Dealerships to Equipment Dealers and thoroughly enjoyed working with a diverse group of owners, and still do.
After 6 years, my family and I moved to Boise Idaho to provide a calmer life style for our kids and our everyday lives. I was able to transfer with American Hardware and took over the Boise Office.
Five years ago, American Hardware made some major company alterations and I found myself looking for a change in my career path direction. I met Todd Shepard at a Used Dealership Convention and was impressed with his knowledge of the Used Dealer Market and his dedication to customer service, so I approached him about a career opportunity, and from that, my relationship with Shepard & Shepard began and I have not looked back.
