 First: what is an independent agent? 

An independent insurance agent is a licensed professional who represents multiple insurance carriers rather than being tied to a single company. Key benefits of the independent agency model include:

  • Flexibility and Variety: Unlike captive agents bound to one insurer, independent agents can shop around, comparing policies, rates, and coverage options across various carriers.
  • Tailored Solutions: This independence allows them to offer a diverse selection of insurance products tailored to your specific needs and budget.

An independent agent will evaluate your insurance requirements, pinpoint coverage options from a range of carriers, and help you secure a policy that offers protection against potential risks.

With their expertise, market insights, and carrier relationships, independent agents aim to deliver personalized insurance solutions, ensuring competitive rates without sacrificing exceptional service.
