What is an Independent Agent
An Independent Insurance Agent, or broker, is a locally-owned insurance agency that has contracts with many insurance companies, not just a single company. This means that the insurance agent can choose the best carrier, with the right coverage and the best price for each different client, since every client has very different needs. It also means that neither the client nor their agent is stuck with a company that has poor service or bad rates. The Independent Agent can always put the needs of the client first, which includes choosing the right insurance company partner, too. Since 1972 Purves & Associates has been a proud and independent insurance agency.
