What is the best/proudest moment at your agency? Piecing together coverages for a startup company involved with natural gas and tailoring their insurance needs as they grew to become one of our largest clients and one of the largest natural gas dealers in New England. It was a good challenge and succeeding in the end is a fantastic feeling!
How does your agency represent the community it serves? Being one of the largest independent agencies in Vermont with 8 offices helps us to keep things personal with our clients, some of whom we have had for 40+ years! Still meeting face-to-face with clients gives us a sense of compassion and understanding of their insurance needs with a personal touch. Some of our customers have worked with the same agent for 20+ years. That kind of loyalty from our clients just proves they trust that we have their best insurance interests at hand.
