With over 40 years of experience in the insurance business, Anthony Fakouri knows the industry inside and out. The Pine Bluff native and University of Arkansas at Monticello graduate writes life insurance and annuities and says he is driven by accomplishing and doing things that other people can't or haven't done. When he's not working, Anthony likes to golf, read, travel and sail.

What are the most important factors in choosing life insurance? The client understanding what he or she wants and needs, whether it be for savings, death benefit protection, estate planning, etc.

What makes your customer service outstanding? I listen to what the customer is saying, and when you hear what the customer is saying, you can act accordingly.

How can insurance cover inheritance taxes for my children? Life insurance is tax exempt if properly structured. You can use the tax-free money from the policy to pay any taxes owed.

Who is your mentor? I have had several; two that first come to mind are Charles Hill from Texas and John Hickman from Little Rock.
