Why an independent agent
Consumer Knowledge
Why Should you choose an independent agent?

Selecting an insurance agent is as important as selecting the right doctor or attorney for your family or business needs.  Unlike telephone representatives or captive agents, the Independent Insurance Agent represents multiple insurance companies and has the flexibility to research their companies to locate the best coverage, price and service for you.

The Independent Agent is able to assist you with all your personal and business insurance needs.  You will no longer need one agent for your car, another for your home, and yet another for business.  Independent Agents offer expertise in various types of coverage and are always there to serve and protect your financial assets.  The following is a brief list of characteristics of an Independent Agent:

•Is licensed by the State of Texas
