ELPs earn Dave’s endorsement—they can’t buy it.
Being an ELP isn’t easy; it’s hard work because ELPs are held to a higher standard of excellence. While ELPs do pay a fee to cover website maintenance and employment costs, Dave’s endorsement is not bought—it’s earned. We have a 45-person team that interviews potential ELPs several times and provides support to make sure your ELP provides the advice Dave would give. We also make sure that every ELP is someone you feel comfortable talking to and is a person you can trust.
On top of that, we evaluate the performance of all ELPs every month to make sure we recommend you to the best agent possible. Also, every person who uses an ELP has a chance to grade them based on their personal experience through surveys we provide.
ELPs give great customer service and are easy to understand.
We make sure each of our ELPs truly has the heart of a teacher, so you can trust your ELP to provide top-notch customer service. No one likes to be talked down or made to feel as if they don't matter. Our ELPs take pride in the fact that they treat each Dave fan like a friend.
The ELP program is designed to help you make money and save money.
It’s simple! If this program didn’t benefit you, we wouldn’t do it.
Why use a real estate agent?
It’s a fact that people who use a good agent sell their home faster and for more money.

Why use an investing professional?
A good investing pro is going to do more than pick your funds. They are going to fit your investments into your life, consider tax implications, inform you about changes in legislation, and educate you so you’ll understand what you're investing in and why. If you’re having a bad day and decide to pull all of your investments out, you can ruin the goals you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Since buying high and selling low is a bad plan, an investing pro will remind you why you’re investing and encourage you to stick with your long-term goals.

And best of all, it’s absolutely free to use an independent insurance professional!
