Kyle Akers

MedicareCompareUSA Licensed Insurance Agent
Akers Insurance LLC |

A: I started selling Medicare in September 2020 at the peak of Covid and just before the election period. I consider myself fortunate to follow in the footsteps of my family Wes, Zach, and Brianna Akers.

A: I chose to align myself with MedicareCompareUSA because of the organization’s unwavering commitment to excellence in the Medicare sales industry. MedicareCompareUSA stands out as a leader in providing valuable resources and support that empower agents, like myself, to deliver the highest standard of service to our clients.

1. Building Strong Relationships Matters:

Your clients are the heartbeat of your business, and guess what? They can become your biggest cheerleaders. Take some time to actively listen to them—ask about their lives, their families, and their hobbies. Create a real connection beyond the paperwork because a genuine conversation today could lead to a client who sings your praises tomorrow.

2. Never Stop Learning:

In the ever-changing landscape of the insurance world, it’s crucial to stay in the know and never settle into thinking you’ve got it all figured out. Staying updated on changes in policies, regulations, and media trends can only enhance your expertise and help better serve your clients.

3. Effective Time Management

Balancing a growing book of clients, paperwork, and ongoing education can be challenging at times. It is important to prioritize tasks, set realistic goals, and utilize tools and systems to help streamline the administrative processes. Time management is a key contributor to both heightened productivity and the cultivation of a healthy work-life balance.

A: I really enjoy all the wonderful conversations I have had when getting to know my clients. Each person is unique in their own way, and it’s been a great experience meeting different individuals and picking up valuable lessons along the way. My clients bring a wealth of information in areas where I may not be as knowledgeable, and building these connections has been a respected journey of mutual growth and learning.

A: Having a solid support system is crucial. Thankfully, I stand on the shoulders of giants with an incredible team at Akers Insurance, who are always a call away to help assist with challenging questions. The support from the MCUSA team has also been a valuable resource for tackling tricky issues. It’s also important to utilize your local carrier sales support team—they’re not just there for plan-related queries but can also offer opportunities to fuel the growth of your business.

A: When I initially began, I used to input all my clients’ information into to find the best plans for them. The software provided by MCUSA has been a game-changer in this regard. Sunfire Matrix is an excellent tool that streamlines the entire process. It has significantly sped up and simplified my ability to navigate through plans and finalize enrollments—all within one user-friendly platform. The perks are too numerous to list here, so if you haven’t already, definitely check it out!

A: I’m a nature enthusiast who thrives on traveling to new places, ensuring a good hike is always on the agenda. When I’m home, I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, Katie, and our mini golden doodle puppy, Oakley.

One of my absolute favorite hiking experiences was traversing the Wonderland Trail at Mount Rainier, Washington. Whether it’s a serene trail or a challenging climb, engaging myself in the outdoors is my go-to method for finding balance and regrouping amid the hustle and bustle of life.
