How to Find a Reliable Insurance Broker

Hey mortgage brokers, do you have a fast and reliable insurance broker for you and your clients? 

Insurance brokers are good to have within your network of trusted professionals for referring to your clients. A fast and reliable insurance broker is unique because they focus on the customer’s needs. They know the market, the best rates, and shop for the right plans specifically for the buyer’s requirements. 

While searching for an insurance broker, you will find that there are many insurance professionals out there. 

But, how do you know they are the best option for your industry? 

Below we provided tips to help you get started in your search for a reputable insurance broker, one who has your best interest at heart and provides insurance coverage specifically designed for you and your clients. 

Read Reviews and Testimonials

Nowadays, it’s easier than ever with all the technology at our fingertips to research businesses by checking reviews on various sites, including Yelp, Google My Business, Reddit, and social media platforms. When looking for an insurance broker, you want to make sure they have outstanding ratings and respond to comments quickly and professionally. You can also read testimonials on the broker’s website or request testimonials from the insurance broker you are researching. 

Expertise in Your Industry

Do they have experience in homeowners insurance? Not all brokers specialize in all insurance types. This is one of the most important factors to keep in mind while searching for an insurance broker. You want to work with a professional who knows the industry and has multiple carriers to get the best rates for you and your clients. 

Proper License and Credentials

Anyone can claim that they are an insurance broker. While you are conducting your research, you want to verify that they have the proper license to operate their business. There are different types of licenses they should have depending on what kind of insurance they specialize in. They will need to have documentation for that specialty, including property, life, automobile, accident and health, casualty, and personal lines. To check the broker’s license status, you can go to the California Department of Insurance website to obtain that information. 

Personalized Service

An insurance broker who takes the time to listen to their customer’s needs and concerns will stand out from the rest, especially when they provide helpful and knowledgeable advice that will benefit their customers. A knowledgeable insurance broker will be familiar with most insurance types, what they include, and take their time to explain the details of the policy and what’s best for their client’s specific needs. They will have patience and be focused solely on them with compassion and respect. 

Quote Process

Time is of the essence during the home buying journey, and the insurance quote process should be quick and easy without the hassle and a long wait time. There are a few things to consider: Is the online quote process easy to fill out and understand? Are they available to answer your questions after you receive the quote? A reliable and trustworthy insurance broker will have a smooth quote process and be available to answer questions and explain the details quickly and efficiently.
