    “There are a number of reasons why I’d recommend Kansas City Life to a general agent. First off, they have a great product portfolio. When I was looking for a company to partner with, you could have a very good company, but no products. Second, they’re a company that’s not too big. They’re a company that if I need something done, I know exactly what department to go to, who to talk to in that department and it gets done very quickly.”

  • “I would recommend Kansas City Life to any general agent. They’re a Midwest company and their handshake is their bond. They’ve always kept their word and that’s very important to us.”
