David Duford and his group are simply AWESOME in every single way! DIG is not my first agency which makes me appreciate them even more as I now have experience to compare. His training is available, plentiful and totally on point. He is responsive! He is knowledgeable! He is ethical! He is reasonable and fair! He is generous with his commission levels! He is super cool! He is real! He is NO pressure!Don't drink the kool-aid from other agencies who pressure you to build a team (when you don't even know what you are doing yet) to writing with certain carriers that leave you vulnerable and ripe for replacement from the agents right behind you.DIG is a class act and I am grateful to be a part of this amazing agency and team. Join DIG as you can't go wrong!
Daily sales training - twice a day actually! - puts this group head and shoulders above every agency with which I have worked over a 50+ year sales career. Training geared to both new and experienced agents. A no B.S., realistic explanation of what it takes to be successful. Coupled with high commissions, and large number of companies to access this is the epitome of what an IMO should be.
I have been following Dave on YouTube even while I was still studying for the life insurance exam. When it was time to start working with an agency, I knew I wanted to go with someone who is a straight-shooter and knows exactly how to train new agents. Dave is exactly who you see on the YouTube videos -- upfront, cares about your success, no BS, super knowledgeable. He has been incredibly patient with all of my beginner questions, and I am grateful that I can always get quick answers to anything I'm struggling with. If you're getting started in life insurance, Dave is the one to go with, hands-down.
David Duford is the real deal. He truly cares about assisting agents in reaching their goals by conveying his vast knowledge and experience in the business. David’s accessibility is unmatched and that is so important when starting in this business. If you’re looking for the best mentor, you need look no further than David!
I highly recommend David. Super communicator, easy to reach out to. He has tons of experience and the intelligence/charisma to package it and provide it to those who choose to work with his agency. Like me. His training program will rival any of them, including the big captive companies (like the one I used to work for). If you want to sell insurance as a independent agent, look no further than David Duford.
David gives great training and great access to teaching materials to help you make a successful business. He is also very available to speak with directly. I'm glad to have joined his group because I have learned so much that will help in the future with my final expense business.
I gave been working with Dave for some time now, and what I really love working with him is that he direct, kind and he takes the time to explain things in a way one should understand. The best of all is teaching us to do right not put any product to the seniors. I my self am new ,but learning a lot, and I know is just a matter of time. He is sitting me for success. Trust Dave you won't regret he not just good, he's great he knows what he talking about.
David is the most knowledgeable Final Expense individual I have ever been exposed to. His experience in the field along with the ability to transfer that information to others to help them succeed is amazing.
It took almost one year of market research to find the best insurance company and I decided to join Duford Insurance Group because they provide the foundation and fundamentals, training and ideas for accomplishing my professional goals.
David and his Team in my experience are the Best of The Best in helping new agents navigate through the sea of endless options when it comes to selecting the right type of leads and product line to focus on depending on your (sales/professional) personality. David's website even provides a check list that takes you from how to purchase E&O insurance all the way through to your first day on the phones with live customers. DIG is an excellent agency to join!
I am a new agent with DIG, found David via YT. Happy I started my insurance career here. Great place to start a career transition. If you're an assertive entrepreneurial type you'll find all the training you could ask for to make yourself successful. David works hard and is constantly delivering great content on all platforms.
I compared many (many) different Agency, GeneralAgency, IMO, organizations and contract offers before going with Duford. I find they offer the commission levels that others want you to work years and recruit many others before you obtain. Duford want's you to make a living from day one without having to recruit.Of all the different trainings out there David offers real, everyday things like how to set an appointment, how to get in the door, and how to close the sale. That half hour every morning and at lunch are a great way to keep focused on the fundamentals that make us money.
David Duford is the consummate professional. Since joining his final expense team I have learned why this type of program can assist individuals with financial means in their greatest time of need. I highly recommend Mr. Duford to anyone looking to be successful in the insurance industry.
I have worked with numerous Insurance Marketing Organizations throughout my 11 year insurance career and beyond and have found and experienced the best group to be associated with, the Duford Insurance Group, and David M. Duford, specifically, from Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have also worked with other home based businesses and his organization stands above and beyond for honesty, integrity, knowledge, and communication skills. In his training sessions, he will give you unbiased, well researched, and experienced input that will far exceed anyone else in the industry. I highly recommend that if you are interested in working with the best, you owe it to yourself and your future to investigate pursuing this working relationship. He also makes the process fun and operates with a professional sense of humor and maintains a very efficient, punctual business.

He’s just great!I am a brand new employee, and already have learned so much in the span of a week’s time, while waiting for my writing numbers!He is a wonderful teacher who takes you through the concepts step by step, and explains everything.David provides so many available resources, and has even created a final expense carrier cheat sheet- which is super helpful and easy to use.David Duford truly cares about his agents. I know first hand, as he answers all my emails and always asks if I need help with anything. You cannot ask for a better manager to work under!

I found David on YouTube and was amazed at the comprehensive explanation of every aspect of the insurance business. I have been a licensed agent since 1993 and actually worked for several companies that he reviews. I can say his reviews are honest and accurateAt this point I know what I’m looking for and after substantial research I’ve chosen to proceed down the contracting path with him. I have had minimal personal contact with David but am as excited to be working him as I was getting licensed 29 years ago.I’ll continue to update this review as I work with him and I estimate it will be fantastic.

David Duford literally wrote the book on Final Expense. He's a down-to-earth real world straight shooter that provides top notch training and coaching. He's willing to professionally tell his agents what they don't want to hear -- if he knows its really what they need to hear in order to move forward successfully. He gives his agents as much freedom as they want, while always fast to respond whenever they need a question answered.

He is intentional and has valuable experience to help lead others to their desired success story.If you are self driven, need a fresh start or just a great support team, pursue this find. You will not be disappointed.This agency values agents before themselves. Finally! Thank you!
I am new to DI. I left another group that really was all about buying their leads and going out there and selling with VERY POOR training no guidance. You could not reach the main person AND I HAD TO PAY A MONTHLY FEE!! I had been following Dave for one year and finally took my Health and Life exam and passed it-then joined DI. Excellent training, support, encouragement and honesty. No Kool-Aid!
Dave Duford is a straight shooter and straight to the point! No B.S. from Dave. He helps his agents get the job done. He knows the final expense business backwards and forwards! He's got the tools to help agents succeed.
For those agents looking to master Final Expense David Duford is the real deal. He is always free with his information and full of honest interpretation of how to achieve the best results. From my perspective he follows the golden rule knowing if he helps you ultimately he will benefit too. Agents, you can stop at David Duford's door. If you have will and determination he will guide you every step of the way in achieving your goal. You will end up a success, work with him and you will learn that I am telling you the truth.
Spoke to David personally with a desire to make a change in what I am currently doing in the Insurance industry. Based on our conversation, I realized some of the changes that I can make to be better with my craft. I am looking forward to working with such a professional and talented mentor.
I have worked with 6-7 insurance agencies at this point. David Duford is the best by far; there isn't a close second. David has created tons of content helpful for new or experienced agents. When I think of how bad the training has been at other agencies, it's incredible how well David gets agents trained, just through his website and you tube channel! On top of that, David is actually available to speak one on one for mentorship, help with difficult situations, etc. And, David is offering a better deal for agents than much of what's out there. High commission, fully vested from day 1, and David has the carriers necessary to be successful in Final Expense sales.

Disclaimer: I am not an agent with David Duford. However, I have learned more truths about how to navigate a successful path in Insurance from David that allowed me to survive first year hurdles.

He is a serial quality content creator of useful information for agents and is responsive to requests. In a world where uplines make promises they can’t keep, David does what he says he is going to do.
After dealing with another IMO that was ultimately a shady MLM IMO I was 2nd guessing the biz all together until I found David. He was and continues to be upfront about everything, nothing to hide, honest opinions, doesn't try to push you in any direction that you don't want to go. No kind of MLM whatsoever and he knows the biz inside and out. I'm in the biz less than 1 year and I broke 6 figures within my 1st 5 months onboard with David.
You couldn’t ask for a better knowledgeable person in this industry.. great training videos and live training. He is always a text ,email or phone call away and quick response back. I look forward to learning and growing as an agent with him.
I have the honor and pleasure of working with David Duford since 2015 to present. David has done what no other Mentor/Friend has done since ontaining my license back in 2004 in teaching me how to really be a top producer.

This has been possible since teaming up with my Mentor David Duford. If you are looking for a real mentor that will help you to become a top producer then look no further and book an appointment to talk to him and see if you are a fit to joining his Agency. You will not regret your decision.

For a self starting independent, Duford Insurance Group is very easy to work with. They are very responsive. I get emails about how to improve my business or how they can add value to my business. Their youtube and intenal video content is amazing. Most other IMO's email me their incentive trip details and try to push my production to them. There is no shortage of IMO's in the final expense space. His focus on finding the best value and solution for the client. That makes it easy to build a business for long term
Working with David Duford is simple and "no contracts", vested in your production day one! David, an author & experienced in Life, Medicare, and Annuities, was why I sought him out. I did have a few years experience prior to going Independent, but his training and tools, and updates on marketing, helps any agent. It's all remote, but that is the way business works now in recruiting. Listen to what David teaches before you make a mistake of signing a contract with any IMO/FMO.
I have worked with other agencies in the past almost leaving the industry all together for lack of support and training. David Duford is the most transparent agency owner I have ever met. His trainings are the best I have ever experienced. After working with David, I am excited again about the industry and my new skillsets. Highly recommend his agency especially for new agents. He tells it like it is and doesn't sugar coat anything.
I can't imagine there is a better agency to work with whether you are a seasoned agent or new to the insurance business. I would highly recommend the Duford Insurance Group to further your insurance career.

If you are looking for a place where you can grow at a rapid rate, increase your bank account beyond your imagination, learn from an expert who is fun, loving, exciting and thoughtful, look no more.David is an insurance expert and you will become one too, he provides everything you need from the best commission rates to the best insurance carriers especially if you want to do telephone sales from home, the best telephone and in home scripts he will teach you everything you need to say Word for Word to close the sale. He also will teach you how to close the sale in the client’s home at the kitchen table.And if that’s not enough he provides live training via zoom where you can hear live telephone calls of other agents closing sales and allows the group to critique the closer…it is unprecedented.I could go on and on and on but in closing reach out to David Duford you won’t regret it!Tracy O. Johnson aka the insurance lady!
I think David is one of the most honest and upfront people I know. His training is great. There’s plenty of carriers with nice contracts, plenty of training, and he is available for one on one sessions for whatever you need. I couldn’t think of a better group to be part of.
David is a top notch leader in the insurance industry. He is one of the few agency owners who takes personal interest in each and every one of his agents. I highly recommend working with Duford Insurance Group!
