About Independent Agents
Do you think it doesn’t really make any difference where you buy insurance?
This misconception could be costing you money, service and protection. Buying insurance isn’t like buying groceries or clothing.
Insurance is an important safeguard for your family, your home, your car or your business. Make your decision carefully!
There are different types of agents that sell insurance:
Captive Agents – those who are only able to sell the insurance of one company.
Direct Response Representatives – Those who offer you the insurance of one company, and only over the telephone when you call for a quote.
Independent Insurance Agents – Represent a varying range of insurance companies, and research with these firms to find the best combination of price, coverage and service for each individual.
