Josh Hemphill, State Farm Agent

Whether you need auto, home, life, or any other kind of insurance, Josh Hemphill has you covered. He was inspired into the industry in 2007 when his grandmother died. Though her funeral left his family devastated, he recognized it could have been a lot worse without the life insurance that allowed his family to pay off her debt and medical bills she left behind. “It was a game-changer to be able to take care of it… It helped me realize that as a State Farm agent, I could change a lot of lives, by helping families on a needs-basis program.” Impassioned by this idea, Hemphill looks forward to working with and helping his clients on a day to day basis. It was this passion that actually allowed him to earn an incredible place in State Farm history, despite having only had his office in Farragut since 2014. The first award, gifted on April 18th, 2018, was the President’s Award, an accomplishment gifted to the best 50 State Farm Agents in the country. Hemphill hadn’t expected it at all, “I had that as my goal for year 10. I told my agents that I wanted to be in the top 100. There are roughly 19, 900 State Farm agents.”

Then, in 2017, he found out he and his team ranked 72 overall. With hard work and client care, he did make it into the top 50. But in doing so, he actually won something much larger: the Million Dollar Round Table award and membership. This international award is incredibly difficult to acquire. It includes the top 1% of all insurance agents globally. “You gotta be on all cylinders every single day,” he said. “I told my team, ‘You have to be ready to go live at any moment’.” Being given this award allowed him to attend meetings and meet with other financial advisors and agents, to learn from those who’ve been in the business for far longer. “It was cool because when you attend these meetings, it’s like the Olympics of insurance.” An Olympics he qualified for in only 3 years. Josh Hemphill did not do it alone, of course. “It’s my name and face on the billboards, the posters, everything, but the credit should also go to my team.” His team consists of six other members: Bradley James, Teresa Hurst, Zenia Hartsfield, Lacey Hepler, Elliot Ettenborough, and Kaleb McCalpin. Each member has their own strengths and specialties in the Insurance field, ranging from home, to auto, to life, to anything that would need to be insured, and can also speak Spanish for those who need it. He could not have gotten this far without them. His team at home also gave him the chance to succeed as he had. His wife Amanda Hemphill, his son Jordan, and his daughter Isabella are “my support group to keep this thing rocking!” His family and his team have a lot to be proud of. After winning company-wide and international awards, Josh Hemphill is the best of the best when it comes to insurance. Whether you need to protect your home, your car, your life, or any other aspect, Hemphill has the plan and the care to ensure that you get what you need, when you need it. After accomplishing so much after less than a decade of insurance services, it’ll be exciting to see where he goes from here.

Vania Smrkovski

“Laura has done work for me since 2005 when she helped us quickly sell our house so we could move out of state. She was professional, friendly and very helpful. When we moved back to Knoxville the next year, we naturally asked Laura to help us buy our next home, but we were unable to actually be in Knoxville for the majority of the house search. Laura was very helpful working with us remotely, and on the few trips I was able to make for work, she was able to quickly line up a number of showings and helped us find a reliable mortgage broker and close on our home while I was still in Illinois. I have since moved from the home she helped us buy but have decided not to sell yet. Laura to the rescue again! As property manager, Laura has been professional and thorough in helping me manage the property.”

“Laura helped me when I purchased my condo. She showed me many listngs before I decided on the one I bought. Laura aggressively found places for me to look at and was very easy to work with. I was looking for a place for me and my kitty cat so it had to be the right place. She understood and was very patient.”

Zillow user4928054

“Laura is the property manager for our HOA and with her knowledge of real estate issues has efficiently and effectively helped us increase the attractiveness of our neighborhood. I would definitely retain her as a real estate agent.”
