Solid advice from adjusterjack. It is always proper to know what the other party has in mind before laying-out all of your cards. Don't give away too much too soon. Have an initial discussion with him and look for other agencies at the same time. Most are looking for good agents who can sell.
Also, you are wise to consider working for an established agency, although this Gentleman sounds like a one-man operation. Too many newly licensed P&C agents try to jump into the fire by wanting to open their own agencies, without experience. Some can do it but most struggle. You are wise to try to work for an established agency. All the best to you!
