Dale Earp

Dale Earp

President and Founder

Hey Folks! I am Dale Earp.

A proud native of Bucks County in the Philadelphia area, I built this empire from the ground up.  I started as an independent agent doing door-to-door sales and working tirelessly to help people. After a year or so, I had a little team of guys I trained right at my dining room table.  Soon we had a small office built and then doubled in growth within one year….moving into a space triple the size. Now we are a National Marketing Organization that supports thousands of agents and agencies.

I created Earp Enterprises to be a respected Leader in the Insurance Industry.  My vision was to build a company of unique values, culture and reputation for going above and beyond to make people happy.  Not only have I developed direct relationships with state and national directors for numerous Insurance Carriers, I have also won awards and recognition for those  accomplishments.  

Over the years, I’ve worked tirelessly to establish strategic guidelines for Earp Enterprises so that each and every agent who comes on board is personally mentored by me.  I have a big sense of humor and believe life is too short to take too seriously!

Leah Wallace

Leah Wallace

Broker

Hi! I’m Leah.

I am a native of Michigan, and relocated to Florida after growing weary of the cold, snow and ice like many other Northerners! 

Having raised a family of five, and always working in the health, wellness, and service industries, taking care of people’s needs became second nature to me.  It seemed only natural to embark on a new career where I could utilize my innate ability to help others with their insurance coverage.

I particularly enjoy helping the Senior population and specialize in Medicare, as well as Life and Final Expense plans.  I believe in the importance of understanding all the options available when making these decisions, and nothing makes me happier than helping my clients through that process.

I really try to make others feel comfortable. My easy-going personality usually accomplishes my mission: put people at ease and develop new friendships!

Hi guys! I’m Larry. 

I was born in Ashland, Ohio.  I am the father of five and a direct descendant of a Third-Class survivor of the Titanic.  The stories I learned as a child sayed with me…giving an invaluable perception on life.  I care greatly about my clients and work hard to give them the best service.

I went into the Navy at age 18, and then attended Ashland College.  I worked for Mutual of Omaha, and later for Merrill Lynch in Ohio, New York City, and Florida.  I moved to Indiana and opened a pizza restaurant that I built into a chain of four locations.  I was very involved in community service by running festivals for the city of Avilla as well as yearly benefits.  I also give Titanic Seminars at no charge to preserve its fascinating history and tell my grandfather’s story.

I now enjoy living in Florida and joined the Earp Enterprises team to help people make the best financial decisions for their families and futures by showing them great insurance investment opportunities.

Hi I’m Aaron.

I have been in the service industry for my entire professional life. Helping people for a greater purpose was instilled in me at an early age and is a creed I live by. My father is a retired US Marine Corpse Warrant Officer who taught me that integrity is doing what is right when no one else is watching. My mother taught me that following my heart would lead me in a life of purpose and meaning.

I’ve been in the health and fitness world for the majority of my life. Having the opportunity to help reshape another person’s health has rewarded me in so many wonderful ways. I decided to become a broker when I met Dale and Rachel Earp and discovered how they are able to help so many people in my community. I myself did not have proper insurance coverage when I faced a major surgery and the costs associated with it that I had to incure where tremendous and stressful. Had I known a simple change to make on my health insurance plan beforehand I would have been covered! Health, Life, Medicare and Medicaid insurance can be very confusing, expensive, and stressful if you’re not an expert in understanding what the policy is saying, covering and more importantly, not covering.

I’m proud to be a part of Earp Enterprises because the company has been founded on integrity and doing what is right for the consumer, not what’s best for the insurance carriers and brokers.
