About Us

The Agent Insurance Services was founded in 1999 in the basement of owner Ron Nanosky’s parents’ house. Since then, we have grown into a full-service independent insurance agency, and have a beautiful office in Boardman. Our team is highly trained and well versed in the insurance agency.

Being an Independent Agency, we have multiple companies to choose from. So, we have many options to provide peace of mind to our preferred market clients throughout Ohio by matching them with the right Home, Auto, Business, and Life insurance products.

We serve our clients first while representing our carrier partners well in order to provide the RIGHT insurance product at the BEST price. Our core values are at the heart of everything we do. We have big, ambitious dreams that we work hard toward achieving all while having a great time!


We prefer applicants who want to make $50,000 a year but realize that won’t happen overnight. This is a fantastic opportunity to get started on the ground floor and move up with a growing company. You will be provided with a competitive salary, along with the ability to earn bonuses based on individual results, agency production, and profitability. First-year compensation will fall between $35,000 – $39,000 depending on how quickly you learn and how effectively you apply yourself.

Our clients deserve to be able to reach us when they expect us to be available. Our normal business hours are 9-5 Monday through Friday. Also, we are a team that has each other’s back. We rely on consistent availability during our open hours. However, we also understand you have commitments outside of work.

  • You enjoy helping people
  • You like a variety of tasks to do throughout the day
  • You look forward to meeting and getting to know new people
  • You have a positive attitude
  • You thrive when challenged and like working hard to achieve your goals

Skills Needed to Thrive in this Position

Computer Confidence – We utilize many different applications to accomplish our work. Some of the systems are simple and intuitive, others are quirky. You should enjoy diving into computer systems, enjoy utilizing them to increase your productivity, and be able to adapt when they update and look totally different (though many times their “bones” remain the same). If you get worn out spending time in front of a computer or are easily thrown off when a web application changes its look and feel, you probably won’t want to apply here.

Professional Curiosity – Insurance offers a wide and deep pool of information to explore, as well as the opportunity to sharpen your professional skills through continuing education and specialized training. We believe in order to get more, you’ve got to become more and we accomplish this through regular attendance at industry training and working toward attaining professional designations.

Communication – You need to clearly and correctly communicate with clients via face to face, telephone, videoconference, recorded video, email, text, and social media. We want to meet our clients where they are and interact with them in the manner they prefer. You need to be articulate.

The vast majority of our interactions with clients are over the phone. Your primary role will be to answer and route phone calls appropriately. In this way, you would serve as our “Director of First Impressions”. So, positivity in your communications is key. You need to be the kind of person that others will love to talk to on the phone.

Interpersonal – You will need to work closely with other team members, as well as serving clients and interacting with vendors. You will need to effectively build trust and convey our value proposition to all of those stakeholders. You will need to understand your strengths and weaknesses and adapt to those.

Math – You don’t need to be a budding Einstein, and you can use a calculator, but you have to be comfortable doing quick calculations (add, subtract, multiply, and divide).

Organizational – You will need to be able to plan, schedule, and monitor your activities while setting priorities and meeting deadlines. You WILL be interrupted. So, you will need to be able to adapt to that without losing efficiency.

Your Personality

This is HUGE. You need to be outgoing and confident. You have to enjoy people. You have to have a genuine desire to help them and have the ability to motivate and persuade them. You need to be cooperative and have a good sense of humor. You have to be ethical and honest, no matter what. You have to be punctual. You have to be a problem solver. You have to be able to accept constructive criticism and correction without getting defensive or discouraged.

Above all, you have to possess a great ATTITUDE. Seriously, we can train you in the insurance stuff, but if your attitude is not GREAT (notice I said great. Good is not good enough), you will have trouble succeeding here.

If you are still reading this, then you are not afraid of a challenge and may be a perfect fit for our team. If you think you are, please carefully follow the instructions below to let us know who you are and why you might be just who we are looking for.
