How does WAHVE work?

WAHVE matches agencies with tech-savvy “pre-tirement” insurance professionals who have 25-plus years of experience in the industry. These professionals, also known as wahves, are available full or part time as well as for project/consulting work. And because they work remotely, wahves can provide their services from anywhere.

Wahves make excellent mentors for your agency’s inexperienced producers. They are experts in their fields – often having multiple designations, degrees and licenses – and enjoy the opportunity to mentor or train new producers. Their institutional knowledge is invaluable to young agents just starting out in their careers.

While WAHVE is not a substitute for a 24-hour call center, it could help you extend your agency’s hours of service to clients. For example, if you hire a wahve who lives in the Pacific Time Zone, they could be available to help clients after normal business hours in Ohio’s Eastern Time Zone.
