What makes a good insurance agent?
When it comes to financial security and insurance protection, your insurance agent is a trusted advisor who offers personalized and expert advice to you and your family, now and in the future.
A survey by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) discovered that three out of four people use an agent when purchasing insurance. More than half of the respondents over age 55 have purchased insurance from the same agent for at least 20 years.
If you’re like most people, you want to develop a long-term relationship with an agent, too. But how do you go about finding someone who is professional and reputable? For starters, you can choose from a select group of agents that are part of Trusted Choice.
