Success, Capabilities, Partnership

In recent years we’ve made substantial changes in how we do business, both with our insurers and with our retail agency partners.  Growing 150% in the last three years, revamping our web presence and social media strategy, and establishing effective partnerships to bridge the residential construction and insurance industries, we now have various new capabilities and achievements to “hoot” about.

Our Best Retail Agency Partners:

  • Understand Smart Home and Cyber Liability
  • Focus on Residential Construction
  • Serve their Local Home Builders Association(s) or niche builder groups
  • Believe in both mitigating risk and transferring risk with larger accounts
  • Commit to mutual performance standards
  • Understand the meaning of “Rifle vs Shotgun”
  • Appreciate consistency, reliability, and sustainability
  • Write accounts from $1,500 to $1.2M per year in annual premiums
  • Use WISE instead of the more corporate wholesalers who we beat most of the time

Our “boutique” approach in working with key agents has not changed. We are still a “trust based” relationship wholesaler with creativity and depth of problem solving expertise.
