I am going to give you a tour of something Matt and I are really proud of, the reason we moved to Denver……..Matt to take over Farmers Insurance District 20! In fact the only thing he took over was the District itself……the location, office, design and staff Matt (and I) have started from scratch!!!
The office is located in Lakewood in the new trendy area called Belmar! (about 14 miles from where we live now) This area is filled with shopping, living, offices, Whole Foods, places to eat….. you name it! Our office is located on the 4th floor of a bank building!
This space when Matt found it was bare bones….all white, old carpet and brown cabinets and what he/we were able to do in 3 months is pretty cool!!!
We picked out paint, flooring, counter tops, all furniture for each room, decor, office supplies………….
And I got to design the front lobby and piece it together……… You will be shocked to know that most of the furniture in this room came from Target, rug included. The vintage prints we were able to purchase from Farmers.
The blue is actually “Farmers Blue” the paint color they recommend online for their offices. It worked out great huh? Matt and I wanted this to be a contemporary office that would wow people! We want people to love the place they work…. because this is an extension of us.
This is really a piece of Matt’s personality…..I filled this lamp with used golfballs…..and the silver vase next to it is filled with Golf Tee’s! I will say he has pillaged some balls since for “office golf”! (shame shame)
These 2 tables come together for a unique coffee table…….. I like how it is a little “rustic” mixed into this contemporary office and the grey really fits in with all the brushed silver we have used!
I am proud of this……we are District 20 so I found these two at Home Goods as a modern take on our district number lettering! We stuck with Farmers colors by bringing in the Red!
Here is Matt doing his thing in the corner office……not bad views huh???
His office is always a little messy but that is Matt……and he also has a flat screen TV mounted on a wall!
Look at this view……. This is from Matt’s office……..
We have a really large room in the back that is our “Bull Pen”….when an agent is first starting and training you aren’t usually able to run out and purchase/lease space so we offer 6+ office spaces! We already have 2 agents working in here! Matt and I picked out all this at Ikea!
Here is our break room……it’s nice to have the dishwasher, microwave and all that!!
Here is the conference/training room that Matt holds all District meetings……..the TV is actually used as a computer screen for power point presentations!
And Matt painted the entire training room with white board paint and trimmed it out to look professional! We love this aspect…..so much room to work!
Back behind that wall is the copier, supplies, file cabinets….the usual you name it. And we were able to get granite on the counters in the supply room too!
Here is my little slice of life…….. Yup, you heard me…..I started Monday morning as Matt’s Executive Assistant! I am getting use to a new routine and learning the ropes too!
We also have 4 personal offices housing 2 full time recruiters and 1 will have an Agency Business Consultant in it that we just hired today!!! I have been slowly decorating their offices also!
Hope you all liked the tour!!! What do we do????
Recruit and hire new agents, train new agents, provide continued Ed for older agents, run promotions, ensure the district hits it’s goals and I could go on and on!!!!!!
