Why Go Independent?

Trusted Advisors. Undeniable Advantage.

Stepping out to create your own independent insurance agency may feel like a big leap of faith. We've been there. Being able to control your own schedule, work for an agency of your own, and be in control of your financial future are some of the reasons people just like you took that leap.

We Give You The Power of Partnership
By joining together with AHA and with our affiliation with SIAA, you have greater pull with carriers for direct appointments (something independent agents struggle to get out of the gate), profit sharing from the first year (which some have used to bring on additional employees), and discounts on services that will reduce your monthly costs and give you a faster path to profitability. SIAA has a proven track record with scratch agencies, assisting over 4,800 insurance professionals to realize their dream of owning and operating a successful independent insurance agency.
