When I look back now, I recognize the reasons I initially joined Renaissance Alliance are far different from those I realize today. I label myself as a small agent, although I am probably representative of what makes up the majority of independent agents across the country. So, I originally joined Renaissance for the markets.
Beyond much greater access to markets, I have realized so many more benefits as an Alliance Constellation Agency. The automation is certainly one of them. The software applications available from Renaissance are six steps above what I had before, and it’s wonderful. The Alliance systems-support people are great when I run into a problem, they are always there for assistance. The expectations I had for profit share were that they would be greater than I had achieved as a stand-alone agency. Never in my wildest imagination did I see them growing to their present level. For my largest carrier, I have seen a significant increase over what I could have normally received on my own. And being part of the Alliance allows me to deliver more products and enhanced services to my clients. So, it’s just been unbelievable.
