I wanted to immediately hit the ground running, and I felt like going with Insurance Pro Agencies did that for me. It was completely turnkey.

Former Farmers Agent
Dan W. - Lake Villa, IL

Insurance Pro Agencies has been a godsend to me. It’s helped my business, my family. I’ve been here 10 years.

Former MetLife Agent
William B. - Rockford, IL

“First of all I want to tell you how much easier that your agency is. The training is awesome. I am learning each and everyday from your day 1- 60. This is very calculated and leaves very little to figure out on your own. After the experience that I have had. the other agency that I worked with set you up for failure your agency thrives on success. IPA is a breath of fresh air, and awesome to do business with. If I knew what I knew today I would be far more advanced with my business.”

Former Independent Producer
Marsha P. - Pleasant Hope, MO

We are growing every day but I am a scratch agency and so I like being part of a bigger network and I do not have to have a quota with all of these carriers that I like to write for.

Former American Family Agent
Chris M. - New Lenox, IL

“Anyone who’s been a captive agent for more than 10 years knows it’s not what it used to be. For the first 13 years of my insurance career, I was a captive agent. I watched my captive agency go from being a great career to an unpleasant drudge-fest. After watching the industry change and seeing my book of business and income dwindle, I finally decided to make the move. The only regret I have about joining Insurance Pro Agencies is that I didn’t do it years earlier.

Former American Family Agent
Sabina M. - Evergreen Park, IL

“I interviewed 5 master agencies when deciding to start my independent insurance agency and was able to speak directly with Terry to get all my questions answered with Insurance Pro Agencies. Their contract offered the most fair program with the most attractive group of companies of any agency group I spoke to. They have been very supportive with quick answers to all our questions. We are quite happy with their program and support.”

Former State Farm Agent
Dave J. - Gilbert, AZ

I wanted to have some options, and I still wanted to run my own business. Insurance Pro Agencies gave me those options. If I want to focus on health insurance, I can. I could also focus on life insurance. I can focus on houses and cars. What I have been doing a lot is commercial insurance. I can do dental labs. I can do landscapers, electricians, car dealers, muffler shops. Everything I’ve just said I’ve actually got for clients, and so that’s what drew me to Insurance Pro Agencies.

Former Health Insurance Agent
John D. - Rockford, IL

“IPA offered me a great contract and it REALLY allowed me to be independent, they have outstanding agent support and all the companies I needed to grow my business”

Former Farmers Agent
Jose S. - Columbus Junction, IA

Insurance Pro provides years of professional experience combined with access to some of the top carriers in the nation. IPA took our newer agency to the next level with friendly service, great advice and a highly competitive commission split. After months of research on which group to team up with, IPA was the best opportunity available!”

Former Independent Producer
Brad B. - Mattoon, IL

It’s given me the availability of companies, good companies, quality companies, so I don’t have to worry about claim service. After being restricted with one company for a while, it’s been refreshing. Terry has been good in regards to little pressure, leaving me on my own, which is my preference, and I think probably all of our preferences since we’re agents and we’re self-employed. Just some freedom to concentrate on what you want to do and what’s going to help your career the best.

Former Country Financial Agent
Kevin M. - Mt Prospect, IL

IPA enables you to work without pressure, with the best carriers and best commissions. If you are a hard worker you will grow your agency in no time. They are the best aggregators in the market today.”

Former American Family Agent
Angelo G. - Chicago, IL

“What I appreciate the most from Insurance Pro Agencies was the opportunity. The fact that every market that was needed to get started was part of the group. I highly recommend Insurance Pro Agencies to any agent / agency that is thinking about taking the leap from being a captive to independent agent.”

Former Farmers Agent
Shelton S. - Little Rock, AR

It’s more business, more money, and a better situation. The benefits of Insurance Pro Agencies, it’s more carriers, more general agents, and you can put your clients with any insurance company they fit into, and you’ll have more competitive premiums, which helped me to grow my business in the last five and a half years more than what I wrote with American Family in nine years.

Former American Family Agent
Sam S. - Worth, IL

“The process to have new brokers get appointed to carriers and begin writing business was effective and prompt.”

Former Farmers Agent
Guillermo V. - Antelope, CA

“I like the fact that you have our interests at heart and always try to get us new carriers to work with. What also sets you apart from others is the fact that you actually do what you say you are going to do. It is refreshing . I have been with you over 4 years and will always help promote your services if given the chance. Looking forward to next year.”

Former Farmers Agent
Scott K. - Irvine, CA

With the number of companies that we can have through Insurance Pro Agencies, I’m never embarrassed about any quote that I give. I’m able to write probably two-thirds to three-quarters of the business that I quote. I can always can find a company that is looking to write new business and it’s a wonderful situation to be in.

Former Captive Agent
Steve M. - Frankfort, IL

“Insurance Pro Agencies offers a great opportunity to become a successful independent agent.”

Former Allstate and Farmers Agent
Bill C. - St. Louis, MO

“I feel that I have a personal relationship with the owners of the company that allow me to call and they know who I am along with my agency. I was given an opportunity that allowed me to start a scratch agency without taking out several large loans to get it started.”

Former Allstate and State Farm Agent
Matt F. - West Des Moines, IA

"We exceeded $100K in monthly New P&C Business Premium yesterday; a milestone achievement for us. We are pretty excited. We should start getting to the point that we are writing between $100K and $150K in New P&C Business every month as we continue to streamline our operations. Thanks for all of your help and support the last 10 months!"

Former Allstate Agent
Jeff R. - West Chester, PA

"I would like to thank you for giving me this great opportunity to own my own agency. I am a little more than a month into it and I feel like I have made the best decision of my life."

Former Allstate Agent
Chris C. - North Haven, CT
