Its important to understand a couple key things. You are able to get appointed with multiple companies. Some companies will appoint you direct and some will require you to work thru an NMO and their hierarchy.
If you are new to this space that may be your best course of action. Most new agents want the highest contract they can get (well that's true for all of us) but you also need a reality check. If I have a great contract but don't know anything about the product or have a support system to fall back on. You may not be as successful as working under a good agent oriented FMO
or Agency that will give you the training and support you need so you can prosper. Our Agency is not in this space so I don't have a dog in the fight but when I started over 30 years ago thats the path I chose. The 4 years I worked in that system was invaluable to my growth when I branched out and started our Agency. Best of Luck
