Our member agencies collective growth has consistently exceeded the industry average. We want our agents business to be as large as they desire it to be. AHA can help you do that.
“I have dealt with AHA for over 15 years and have had tremendous success with Tim, the folks in his Office and his member Agencies. This relationship has been a winning strategy for Carriers, Agents and Insureds.”
John Dyer, CIC, AAI, AU, AIS, AINS, Territory Director, Acuity
“I’ve had the privilege of working beside a great team of people at AHA for the past few years. They are a tremendous resource to their Members providing unmatched assistance with education and product knowledge, agency automation and carrier expertise. The team at AHA is committed to helping their members grow their business and increase their bottom line. They go above and beyond to celebrate success and show their appreciation through various member events during the year. If I were an Independent Agent, I would be fortunate to work with such an upstanding organization.”
Amy L Spoerner, CIC, Executive Sales Representative, The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.
“AHA Insurance Network and SIAA are partnering to provide Independent Agents of all sizes and scope to compete and win in the very competitive marketplace today. With their business model and value added services, they give their member agencies every tool needed to be successful in an industry that continues to change and evolve. As one of AHA’s largest Core Carriers, we at Safeco value and appreciate the guidance, training and consultative approach that Tim Hyland and his legion of professional staff members provide their ISM’s. Safeco, a National Carrier with a Regional feel is proud to partner with and credit a large portion of our success, growth and profitability to AHA Insurance Network/SIAA.”
Stephen Connors, API, Sr. Territory Manager, Safeco Insurance
“Thurmond Insurance is now completing the fourth year of an outstanding relationship with our friends at AHA. Without them, we would in NO WAY be where we are today. We experience profitable growth today that years ago we could only dream. We MUST have the markets to drive our engines and AHA has those companies on board. This is the “tip of the iceberg”. Very fair compensation, expert consultation, great staff and management education are just a few of the large benefits that come with the AHA brand. For example, we began with very limited Commercial Insurance knowledge/experience. AHA’s staff was very patient with us. With their support and education, we today can say we write now a large volume of Commercial Business that complements our Personal Lines business. Perhaps the most important benefit is that AHA provides an atmosphere that I own my own agency, I make my own decisions. Because of this relationship I reap their benefits while maintaining my independence. AHA is the REAL DEAL!! We value both their professional and personal relationship!!”
Tim Thurmond, Thurmond Insurance
“My father was a State Farm agent, until he recently joined my independent agency. I started my agency in 2002 as a scratch agent. AHA not only helped me build the infrastructure of my agency, but they trained me on the underwriting procedures, company systems, and basics such as, how to gather pertinent information and sell policies. Most importantly AHA helped me get access to several regional and national carriers so I could be successful in personal and commercial lines of business. AHA leaves me truly independent but with a huge backing that provides my agency stability as well as useful and ever-evolving industry insight unlike anything else I am aware of in the industry.”
J. Grant DeLaney, DeLaney Insurance, LLC
“It was a major decision to leave my captive carrier and strike out as an independent agency. I knew we had to make a move and looked into all the networks. There were some that required no fees up front and I am glad I did not go that way. We made back in bonus money year 1 to cover the fees and it has gotten better each year. We have a great variety of codes with carriers that we would not have been able to get on our own and the negotiated commissions and bonus are better that we would have been able to obtain on our own. It was and still is a great fit for us.”
David Cronin LUTCF, Louisville Kentucky Insurance
“I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to “go on my own” and open an independent insurance agency. After researching several networks I came across AHA/SIAA in May of 2006. I am so grateful that I made this choice. AHA, led by my mentor, Tim Hyland, is a group comprised of several professional individuals that are and have always been committed to helping those who are willing to work hard, developing and implementing short and long term goals for imminent success. Tim’s “TEAM” was so patient with me. I now have several employees, producers and have seen the greatest growth percentages that I have ever seen in my 10 years with AHA/SIAA. It is truly remarkable were I was then and where the Lord has brought me to now with such amazing people to work with. If I had to do it over again, I would not change a thing. My journey has just begun!”
