Affiliate Testimonials

Mike Stromsoe
President
Stromsoe Insurance Agency

We cannot thank you enough for the ongoing relationship between our agency and the PIIB family. We remain grateful in so many ways. Since we joined forces with PIIB 6 years ago, our business has continued to substantially grow. But being a PIIB member means more than growth. It means incredible leverage with our carrier partners, financial security through the contracts negotiated by PIIB and ultimately results in a better life for my family and the families of my agency teammates. We have been to accomplish goals personally in the last 3 years that would have never been possible if not through the industry relationships leveraged by PIIB. The attitude of gratitude always wins. We just wanted to make sure you knew how grateful we are. If any agency who is considering a relationship with PllB would like to speak with me, please don't hesitate to provide them my contact information.

I sleep easy at night knowing I have PIIB on my side. My small Agency would have never had a chance gaining direct appointments to all these quality markets. Thank you PIIB!

After considerable research and rumination I decided PIIB was the best cluster partnership for the agency. What a great decision—the transfer has been seamless, the PIIB personnel are totally professional and the agency is thriving! A successful cluster relationship inures to both the independent agency and to the cluster!

The careful selection of an aggregator can mean the difference between prosperity and failure. An agency must place its faith in the aggregator’s reputation, innovation and ability to respond to ever changing market conditions/insurer mindsets. Once the above are taken into consideration, it needs to make sound financial sense – both in the near and long term. The initial investment must be reasonable, the commission split must be fair and the potential for sustained profit sharing must be in place. As an affiliate since 2005, I can affirm that PIIB not only meets the considerations above, it consistently seeks ways to increase its affiliation value. Insurers respect PIIB for its integrity, for its rapid but well controlled growth and for the character of its leadership. When asked about the pros and cons of becoming a PIIB affiliate, the pros are plentiful however, I truly find it difficult to emphasize any cons – they just don’t exist...

Our original Co-Op was charging us $40,000 in fees, and taking 25% of the profit sharing off the top. PIIB offered us a $10,000 fee, and only a 10% take of the profit sharing. Now, I only went to State college, but the math seemed pretty straight forward to me. Also, we liked Larry and the PIIB gang far more, so this one really did fall in the “no-brainer” category. We’ve been PIIB members for a few years now, and the decision to move just keeps looking like a better and better one all the time.
