When Jenny and I opened the doors to the Rhoads Group, we did it because we wanted to add value to the community I grew up in.
So before we started the company, we did our research. As we learned more about the independent agency channel, we realized that not only was it better for the consumer and the agent, but the insurance company as well. It was a no-brainer.
When you’re deciding on an insurance agency, I’d say do your research. We did before we started the Rhoads Group, and here are 3 big benefits we found to going with an independent agency:
- Time is money. We save you time by handling all the details. You don’t have to compare rates on your own, because we’ll do that for you–unbiasedly. Why spend hours calling different insurance companies? Call us or visit us online, and get up to 10 quotes in 10 minutes.
- Peace of mind. Since we can see the broader picture across all carriers, we can inform you of all the benefits and risks of any policy you’re considering. Rest easy knowing that you’ll be chatting with a REAL local and licensed insurance agent. Not some AI bot.
- There’s strength in numbers. When you buy from an independent agency like ours instead of directly from a carrier, you have leverage. For example, let’s say there’s a claim problem with Safeco or Travelers. As a massive representative for those carriers, we have a ton of leverage to fix any issues.
In January of 2014, we started the Rhoads Group with the terrified excitement of any new business owners, and the belief that we were providing top tier insurance service to our consumers. It’s been an amazing ride.
If you want to see how an independent agency can benefit you, give me a call or shoot me a quick message. I’d love to help.
