I started work in insurance by a fluke of nature. I was an engineer prior and I had been laid off 2 years into my first job out of college so I scrambled picking up multiple jobs to get by. I sold cabinets for Sears. Marketed chemicals for a chemical company and also taught tennis, which I played in college. It was tennis that introduced me to a manager of insurance for a captive organization.
I remember being over the moon as I stumbled through my first sale. Not truly knowing the products as well as I should and definitely not knowing the insurance industry well enough, I put together a plan that protected my new client the best way I knew how using what I had with the captive organization I worked for. Lucky for me my first client wasn’t overly meticulous and helped me through my first sale.
Helping clients solve their insurance insurance related problems was something that I naturally excelled at and the company rewarded me. As my experience expanded, I started to wonder if I always had the best product for each client as a captive agent.
In 2008 I decided to go independent. That meant that I could contract with all the top rated carriers that maintain the best prices and/or unique offerings. At the Mitchell Brokerage you’ll be able to tell right away that we gave up on ideology of being a salesperson and replaced that persona with the heart of a consultant and researcher.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
#1. We let our clients know that It’s all about choices. Our job is to understand all the products that are available in the marketplace and effectively communicate the differences to each client. If you have a question that we don’t know the answer to we’ll say so and schedule a follow up once we’ve done the appropriate research to earn your trust.
#2. By law insurance prices are the same across the board per your age and conditions, they cannot deviate. No matter if you secure the deal from us or go directly to the company so with that being the case it’s your brokers job to explain why company A is the best for your case.
#3 As a broker who proudly specializes in several lines of insurance and financial services, we have always delivered a better price or more coverage when going up against a captive company and we have thousands of clients. With that being said, it is possible that the price increment might not be enough to warrant an immediate change but you never know.
In summation, the captive agent maybe a good guy/gal but if they are captive to one company, how can you be sure that you are getting the best deal? It’s always in the customers best interest to discuss with a knowledgeable independent insurance broker prior to making a decision about insurance services.
