Licensed insurance agents use MarketScout to access Market Specialists that have passed a rigorous tribunalization process. Each posted Market Specialist has attained the Certified Market Specialist SM designation in their industry or coverage classification. Our Certified Market Specialists work with insurance agents and their clients to secure insurance quotes from their Best of Class companies, provide research, or serve as a third party advisor.
We honor and believe in the role of the local independent agent/broker. We believe that the ultimate value of the policy is the knowledge and expertise that guide and direct the end- users (the clients/customers) decisions, options, and choices. We believe that the independent agent/broker ensures the link between the client/customer and the company that underwrites the policy is solid and secure.
We work to maintain the best possible environment for our employees, where people can learn and grow with the company. We strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.
