Is your insurance renewal date approaching? If so, there is no need to worry. You are in great hands thanks to AG-Pro Insurance renewal team member, Andi Wait. She has customers’ best interest at heart and takes the time to review policies up for renewal.
I had the opportunity to speak with Andi and get to learn more about her life both in and out of work.
Role at the Company
Andi has been working for AG-Pro Insurance for about a year and a half and serves as a renewal team member. She is in charge of renewing all policies in the system, shopping for policies that have a large increase, rewriting renewals to different carriers, helping update information, and sending out the policy renewal text messages. She is also in charge of all commercial renewals.
Andi has not always been in the insurance business. Before coming to work for AG-Pro, she traveled to Colorado, California, and Washington where she worked on various dairy farms. After a few years, she decided it was time to come back home to Texas. AG-Pro Vice President, Leslie Konkle heard that Andi was an Ag major at Kansas State from a mutual connection and recommended that Andi come to work for the company upon graduation. Once Andi finished college and her travel around the western United States, she decided to take Leslie up on her offer and become a new member of the AG-Pro

family. While working at a dairy farm, is a lot different than working for an insurance agency, Andi has adjusted well. Her friendly nature and humor have allowed her to fit in well with her colleagues. She is infamous around the office for startling easily, and employees have used this information to their advantage. Ag Workers’ employee, Lonzy Flatoff, scared her one time so badly that the whole building heard her scream.
Andi’s favorite part about working for Ag-Pro is the feeling of satisfaction that she gets when saving customers money and finding them great policies that are suited for their needs. She said that “especially with COVID and everything going on, things aren’t easy, but I always hope I can make them just a bit easier on people and give them some peace of mind”. You can tell Andi has a passion for helping people and it is reflected in her work. If a customer is experiencing large rate increases at renewal time, Andi does her best to find them cheaper coverage. She wants people to be protected, without having to worry about how they are going to afford it.

Andi was raised in Fort Worth, Texas, along with her three older sisters by her loving parents. Her family is extremely important to her, and we cannot forget to mention her four-legged family members. Her family has 2 chihuahuas and 1 Great Dane. Andi also has a cat named Peyton that she rescued while working at a dairy farm.
When Andi is not at work or spending time with family she likes doing makeup, cooking, and painting. She especially likes going to concerts. In 2019 alone, Andi went to see Bob Seger, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Phil Collins, Elton John (flew to Canada), Billy Joel, and Cher. If it is not already obvious, Andi is a huge fan of classic rock. Since many artists have postponed their concerts due to the pandemic, Andi has a whole list of people she wants to see next year. The list includes The Foo Fighters, Rod Stewart, Cheap Trick, The Who, The Eagles, Motley Crue, Joan Jett, and The 1975.
Next time your insurance policy is up for renewal, you can have peace of mind knowing that Andi is in charge. If you are interested in learning more about our AG-Pro family, tune into our blog, or follow us on Facebook to see who I interview next.
