I was a captive agent for 23 years prior to joining Agents Alliance. I started as an Allstate agent in 2003 and over the next 15 years built my scratch agency to $3.5 million in renewals. Faced with the possibility of a contract change I sold the agency in 2008. After taking 2 years off, I went to work for Liberty Mutual for 8 years. As that corporate environment changed I realized the best place for me and my clients was somewhere I could put them first and joined AAS.
