What is an independent insurance agent?

There are three different ways you can buy insurance:
  • from an insurance company representative
  • directly from the company via an online store
  • through an independent agent

You see a new insurance ad or digital buying tool every other day. With big companies and easy tools always on your mind, you may forget about independent insurance agents. By choosing to work with an independent insurance agent in Byhalia and Southaven, you can easily shop multiple insurance services with professional advice at your fingertips.

A professional guide for the insurance you need

Shopping online for insurance can be convenient and easy, but many people are unfamiliar with their coverage needs. One size does not fit all when it comes to essential policies like automotive, homeowners, and life insurance. Like a life jacket, your insurance coverage should fit you correctly in order to protect you when the unexpected happens. That's why our independent agents work to personalize your coverage to make it the best fit and protection for you.

Working your way through the insurance industry on your own can be confusing. You can trust a licensed agent to educate you on the policies and coverage amounts that you really need.

  • Customize your coverage to fit your needs
  • Get unbiased advice from industry experts
Freedom to save money

Freedom to save money

When choosing an agent, you can select a captive agent representing a company or an independent agent. Independent agencies are the best option if you have unusual insurance needs or if you are looking for the best price.

Captive agents work for one company and cannot sell policies outside of their company offerings. Even if it is in the best interest of the buyer, they are limited in what they can sell. A good independent agent can offer you unbiased advice about coverage because they can work with multiple insurance companies. A competitive independent agency like ours will work with multiple companies and research a selection of options for you.

  • More company options means more savings
  • Unbiased advice from independent agents

At the end of the day, independent insurance agents save you money by giving you choices when it comes to companies and coverage. Our job is to learn your needs and budget and then match you to the company and policy that works for you.

Personalized care you can count on

Independent agents work hard to build a reputation of stability and trust in their community. We can't lean on a multi-million dollar marketing strategy like our corporate competition. Instead, we have built our reputation for providing customer service and money-saving options from the ground up. Some independent agencies have been building this heritage for generations.

As independent agents, we know that your satisfaction with our work is what keeps our business open. This is why we will work hard to find options that give you the power of choosing what your insurance dollars get you.

In it for the long haul

Your insurance needs are likely to change over time as you grow assets and weather life experiences. Whether it’s purchasing homeowners insurance with your first house, auto insurance when your kids learn to drive, or life insurance to care for your family after your death – you want an insurance agent you can rely on for years to come.

Choosing an independent insurance agent can be the start of a decades-long relationship. Your agent will be there for plenty of big moments, happy or scary, to keep you and your loved ones protected.
