Achievements


Customer Focused. Technology Driven. Relentless Execution.

Keep up the good work, Jessica!

Production Underwriter, Jessica, went the extra mile to provide a DP-1 policy for an agent looking to cover a customer with three property locations and different types of occupancies. Additionally, Jessica was able to find a solution for a customer in Polk County who uses a secondary residence as a business storefront for psychic readings ― that’s a successful bind averaging about $7,000!

“Trying to find solutions for these rare customer needs can be tricky, but it gave me the opportunity to provide quotes for unique cases and find the right carrier.”
— Jessica, Production Underwriter
