7 Reasons to Choose an Independent Advisor

Insurance can be a complicated purchase. You’re not buying bread or milk. You’re buying a promise of protection that could potentially make or break your financial well-being. How do you know that you’re making the right choices about coverage? Are you sure you’re getting the best possible value for your dollar? The options can seem bewildering.

Here are seven reasons why I believe an independent advisor experience benefits you:

  1. I give you a choice – As an independent agent I represent many different insurance companies that offer a wide variety of coverage options and price points. There’s no need for you to accept one quote from one company, and there’s no need for you to spend time filling out many different online applications to get your own quote comparisons. With my connections and my knowledge of the market, I can often find a better value for your insurance dollar than you might find searching on your own. I do the shopping. You do the saving. I find you the right blend of price, coverage, and service.

  2. I am a licensed expert – As an independent advisor I can explain the complexities of insurance in simple terms, helping you make smart decisions. I make a career out of assessing my customers’ insurance needs and matching them with the insurance carrier best equipped to meet those needs at a price the customer can afford. Think about it. While you might research wording for wills on the Internet, you’ll likely go to an attorney to ensure that the document is drawn up correctly. Why wouldn’t you seek the advice of a licensed insurance advisor to be certain that your home, your auto, or your business is properly protected?

  3. I am your personal advisor – As an advisor I not only find you competitive pricing, while making sure you are adequately covered. Working with you face-to-face or over the phone, your agent becomes your personal adviser, taking the time to listen to you and understand your individual needs. I know it’s not just about finding a price you can afford; it’s also about making certain you are appropriately covered so that you don’t end up insurance-poor if you do suffer a loss.

  4. I am your advocate – If you have a billing or claim concern, or need to change your coverage, as your advisor I can be your advocate, working with the insurance company on your behalf.

  5. I am right around the corner – Independent advisor are your neighbors…they share your interest in the community where you live, and understand the benefits and challenges of living in your locale. I am right around the corner, ready to help.

  6. I offer one-stop shopping –As an independent advisor I can often meet all of your insurance needs with the companies I represent, providing individual, family, life, and business coverage.

  7. I am your consultant for a lifetime – As an independent advisor I periodically review your coverage. I am there to help you through all the changes in your life, whether you’re going from you parents insurance plan to buying a life insurance policy to protect your future, getting married, or looking to help you parents navigate their Medicare insurance.
