How an Insurance Agency Can Benefit You

By: John Luttrell, Vice President

If you’re in the market for insurance – and frankly, you should always be considering your options – why would you choose an agency with multiple carriers instead of going directly to a single insurance company? You know the big names, and it seems like a simple choice, right?

But the truth is, insurance is complicated. You have a lot to protect; your home, your family, your small business, your valuable collections & jewelry – and maybe even a luxury of leisure like a boat, RV or motorcycle. You need to make sure you’re working with someone you trust; someone who has your best interests in mind. After 100 years of being in the business, SFM and our team of experts can clearly explain the benefits of going with an agency.

• We are your trusted advisors. We are a part of your community; we’re your friends and neighbors. Our kids play on the same sports teams or go to the same schools. Living and working near you means we have common ground. We take the time to listen and fully understand your needs; getting a holistic picture and finding the right solutions for you that protect your assets while staying within your financial goals.

• We provide options. Agencies represent many different insurance carriers that offer a wide range of coverage options and pricing ranges… agencies that may carry big names and advertising budgets, and boutique agencies that specialize on a single thing that may be most important to you. Let us do the shopping for you – removing the burden of time and negotiating the best pricing on your behalf; leveraging our purchasing power and carrier relationships while working to protect your interests.

• We work for you. While we may offer a wide range of insurance coverage options, we work for you, not the insurance company. We are your advocate. When you have questions about billing, or when you file a claim, you know where to find us; at the ballpark, at the grocery store, or at a school event. We are proud to be your trusted agents that will work with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Let us help you navigate and understand your insurance options – that’s why we’re here. Leverage our expertise to find the coverage and pricing that works best for you. We bank our reputation on our experience and service, and we will not let you down.
