When I first started telling my friends and family that I was starting an independent insurance agency in Dallas the question I got asked most often was: “Why not just start a XYZ agency.” What they were meaning was, why don’t I start an insurance agency under the banner of one of the three large insurance companies (in the insurance industry we call that being captive).
It’s a good question, but the answer is simple. When you work for one of the “big three” insurance companies as an agency owner you start and end the day with one hand tied behind your back. You can only quote and offer their product to your clients and prospects, you have corporate suits breathing down your neck forcing you to push products that might not be the right ones for your clients and most importantly you work for the company, not the client.
That’s not the way I wanted to operate, and when opening an insurance agency in Texas I knew that I only wanted to answer to one person: the client.
The good news is we have access to dozens of insurance carriers which gives us the flexibility to find you best possible coverage at a fair price.
When you work with a “captive” insurance agency, if you want a quote for auto insurance they’ll give you the monthly price and that’s it. You don't have the option to shop multiple carriers, no opportunity to find the best rate and coverage. With the Lewis Family Insurance Group we give you multiple coverage and pricing options so you can make the decision that best fits your current situation and budget.
Additionally, because we’re a family run business, we don’t have to go up the chain if we want something to get done. Our direct access to the insurance carriers gives us the ability to quickly get answers to your claims and coverages questions as well as advance notice of discount and pricing changes. We work for you, not a faceless corporation.
Finding an insurance agency in Dallas isn’t hard. Throw a rock and you’ll find someone who is wearing a poorly fitted, cheap suit who will try and twist your arm to buy their product because they have sales goals they have to meet. Finding an insurance agency in Dallas that puts your needs first, however, isn’t so easy. The Lewis Family Insurance Group is dedicated to making sure that our clients' needs are always addressed in a timely, respectful and easy to understand way.
If you’re tired of paying for insurance and not knowing what exactly you’re paying for, tired of getting calls, emails and texts from an agent that you don’t know (learn more about us here) then feel free to get in touch and we’ll help guide you through the process of switching to the Lewis Family Insurance Group.
