WHY AN INDEPENDENT AGENT?
There is a difference in where you buy your protection. Many people don’t realize there are three sources for insurance:
- Independent Insurance Agents: Local agents that represent a number of insurance companies and research with these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage, and service. These agents support the community and create a personal connection with the client. (DeLong Insurance)
- Exclusive Agents: Agents that offer you one company’s insurance. (Example: State Farm Insurance, All State Insurance)
- Virtual Agents: Agents that offer you one company’s insurance only over the phone or internet. These Companies provide no local support to the client or community, and there is no human interaction. (Example: Geico, Safe Auto)
