When it comes to purchasing insurance, it is a complicated process. When choosing the right agent for you, it may difficult to know what's right from left. There are a lot of options! This is why it is important to understand the benefits of having an independent insurance agent at your side to help you through all of life's tough decisions and moments. Here are 7 great reasons why independent insurance agents should be your first (and best) decision:
Offer You Choice
Many agents can only offer you coverage from the provider they work for, but independent agents don’t work for any company – they work for you! Instead of shopping you coverage on your own, your independent agent has relationships with a variety of providers across the nation; they can shop your coverage and find the best coverage and price! If you want to switch providers, or life brings you to “break up” with whatever provider you have, you don’t have to break up with your agent - they can find you a new coverage from one of the many other carriers they offer.
Unlike a captive insurance agent, independent agents have the ability to shop your coverage from the many providers they have a trusted relationship with, in home, auto, life, heath, and more, while “coaching” you along the way. Instead of doing all the research on your own, your independent agent can sit down with you to teach you how insurance works, what the sticky insurance terms mean to you, and direct you on the BEST path. It makes things so much simpler!
The most common problem for people when an accident strikes is not not having insurance, it is finding out when the bill comes that you do not have the right insurance. Agents do not only find you the best price for your insurance, independent agents find you the best coverage for you. They work with you, one-on-one to understand your needs, ensuring that if an accident happens, you are completely covered, from top to bottom.
Your independent agent is a licensed professional who knows the process of buying insurance, submitting a claim, and dealing with each carrier and their processes. Each agent is trained to know what to do in each circumstance, for each individual.
They Fight For You
In the event of an accident, you will have a person you know to take care of you in this difficult, confusing, and frustrating time. When an accident occurs, your mind is flooded with what to do next, so much so that often, the most important things get forgotten in the moment. Synergy agents will make sure that you are taken care of in your time of need.
They Live Where You Live

Consultants for Life
Independent agents periodically review your coverage so that when you experience a change in your life, they will adjust your coverage for you. Whether you buy a new home, welcome a new member in to the family, adding a teen driver to your auto policy, or otherwise, they will help you through it.
