We had the good fortune of connecting with Laura Garza and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Laura, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
Within my insurance agency, my end goal in 1-3 years is to have a team of 4-5 rockstar agents working with me. They’ll have my back and i’ll have theirs! I’d like to do majority of the marketing and PR for the agency and be able to “feed” my agents. My biggest strength is making new partnerships and keeping them long term. Doing this will also allow me to have more of a work-life balance with my kiddo as well.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I think what sets me apart is that I earn to have relationships with ALL of my partners. I work hard to earn their trust and gain their confidence in me because ultimately I am working hard for them at the same time. It wasn’t easy to get a few teams of solid partnerships. It’s hard work but it’s worth it. I make my job look easy because I don’t share enough of the dark side of being a broker. Lots of tough days for sure! I have overcome a lot with persistence, grit and determination. Being hungry and always wanting more is something my mind will never let go of.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Anytime I have friends or family in from out of town, I first have to take them to visit the Star in Frisco. You can’t come to Frisco without visiting the Star! It’s just a vibe. Then i’d love to take them to a few places in Dallas that overlook the Dallas skyline. It’s beautiful and it’s my favorite!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I love all of my partners whom have also become my friends! But since this is a shoutout; I have to give a shoutout to my top 5 partners that refer me business every chance they get! Keleisha Fuller, Kaydee Guerrero, Sarah Sikora, Nick Mathis and Margy Green.
