The agency was started in 1970 and has been in many locations including Warren, Sterling Heights and New Boston. We have been in Belleville since 1990 when Christopher Clement joined the agency with his Dad. I started in New Boston in 2011, three months after my husband passed away. What began as a part time job a couple of days a week has turned into a full-time career for me! My son Jason began working with us in 2012 and in 2014 the agency was turned over to Chris and myself as the sole owners. While I run the office and day to day things, along with Jason, Chris is our tech consultant, due to his disability in recent years of kidney failure.
An Independent Advantage
What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it’s up to you to make the final choice.
