When I made the decision to come back to the insurance business, I wanted to offer my future clients more coverage for a better price. For months after my temporary retirement, companies sent out information and invited me to consider returning to the industry. While most of them were complimentary in nature, that wasn’t my goal. I was pretty focused on being done.
One company, SIA of the Great Lakes, stood out. I told Joy, “If I ever return to insurance this is the company I’d partner with. Their goals matched mine both on professional and personal levels.” I’d grin at her startled look and get back to retirement.
Time and circumstances have a way of changing our direction in life. I missed my clients. For twenty-seven years I’d enjoyed working with them.
So, I called SIA.
The conversations with the company leadership confirmed my instincts: this was the company I wanted to work with as an independent agent.
My connection with them includes the following opportunities:
-SIA is one of the largest master agencies in the U.S. allowing them to work with companies and agents to provide both with greater opportunities. Remember my main goal – to provide the people I insure with more coverage and better prices? The professional relationships established by SIA with premier companies frees me to reach my goal for my clients.
-SIA has partnered with top of the line companies like Travelers, Progressive, Met Life, Safeco, Wilson, Haggarty, Liberty Mutual, and The Hartford to name a few.
-Through SIA independent agents have the opportunity to provide all lines of insurance to their clients.
-SIA founders, Thomas Harrison and Ronald Marler understand agents. . .because they are agents themselves. (see http://www.siawi.com/ABOUTUS/tabid/56/Default.aspx)
It’s been my privilege to work with the SIA staff. I appreciate the integrity-based way they do business.
I was surprised during my two year retirement that so many of you asked me to consider getting back into the insurance business. It took a lot of urging on your part and my own rising insurance costs to get me to even consider it. As much as those two things mean to me, I was not going to start over without the backing of an excellent brokerage.
When I accepted SIA’s invitation to work with them, we created a circle of success that will benefit SIA, myself, and most of all: my clients.
I can ask you with confidence: If I could save you a substantial amount of money on your insurance, would you be interested in a quote?
