Many of our experienced and respected agents have earned professional designations and have achieved positions of responsibility and influence in our community. In addition, our ongoing success in business placement, client satisfaction, and risk management consultation has earned us the privilege of offering our clients an impressive selection of options from top-tier insurance companies. Our carrier partners consistently recognize us for our production achievements, proactive approach to limiting clients’ risk exposure, and involvement in carrier advisory committees and boards.

Marketing Philosophy

We believe in building relationships with clients and carriers—including longstanding relationships with individual underwriters—and acting as advocates for our clients in their relationships with carriers. Staying with a particular insurance company, rather than switching carriers year after year, helps build a strong partnership that will yield better results and service over the long term. In return, we expect carriers to keep pricing and coverage availability current as markets evolve to cultivate better and maintain those long-term relationships with our clients and us.
