What is an Endorsed Local Provider?
It's become increasingly complicated to find trustworthy and competent investment advisors, realtors, insurance agents or tax services. There are too many lazy businesses and too many unfulfilled promises.
How ELP Fits into Insurance
Dave Ramsey wants to help his fans find trusted, accomplished professionals who will give the same helpful advice that they're used to hearing from Dave. The ELP program is a network of endorsed professionals who are held accountable by members of Dave's team and customers.
Being an ELP isn't easy. Dave has a 45-person team that interviews potential ELPs several times and provides support to make sure they're providing the same advice Dave would give. Dave's team also makes sure ELPs are people you'd feel comfortable talking to and are trustworthy.
On top of that, Dave's team evaluates ELPs performance every month. Also, every person who uses an ELP has a chance to grade them based on their personal experience through surveys.
One of the main requirements of an ELP is to carry the heart of a teacher. No one likes to be talked down to or made to feel as if they don't matter. ELPs must be trusted to provide top-notch customer service. Other ELP requirements include:
- Must be an independent agent (captive agents are not accepted).
- Believe in Dave's teachings.
- An established professional.
- Love helping people.
- Agree to extreme levels of customer service.
- Can explain complex concepts in easy-to-understand terms.
- Put the client's needs first.
- Have proper licensing and active insurance license and in good standing.
- Agree to help clients based on Dave Ramsey's principles.
