Re: Can anyone vouche for Noodle, Smart Choice, Agent Secure

indy's are not really competitive in personal lines in my area. I think everyone tries to write it though.

Re: Can anyone vouche for Noodle, Smart Choice, Agent Secure

I've been looking all weekend at them. 10% seems the norm. I have to start somewhere. I try to remain positive and think about a buddy of mine that gets 8% at Allstate. :lol: I will try not to write personal lines until I have a csr and direct appointments. Seems like Agent Secure and Superior Acces...

Re: Can anyone vouche for Noodle, Smart Choice, Agent Secure

I had thought the same things. The lower volume commitments would be wonderful too. Can you recommend any? I have looked on other forums and it is negative rants. I need a positive recommendation. :lol: I'm in the corner of AL, TN, GA.

Can anyone vouche for Noodle, Smart Choice, Agent Secure?

I've read these threads and wonder how they have so many agents if they all suck so badly. If they are all terrible, how does one go about getting that first $300,000 book to get direct appointments? (I have experience, but Auto Owners for example wanted me to have an indy book first) Which leads me...

Tennessee Commercial Accounts

Can anyone recommend a broker for hard to place accounts? I'm trying to focus on small BOPs, but am running into larger businesses than expected. (or I am using carriers with a limited appetite right now) I am asking advice because it seems like I will be using them a lot. I'd rather be comfortable ...

One stop shop MGA

My experience has been captive, so I'm confused about something. Is there not a MGA that will shop any and all risks? I've found some that say "We do that" and then there's stipulations. ie We do truckers and find out later (within a miles radius and fleets smaller than 40 trucks). I under...
