Why Do You Need an Independent INsurance Agent?

Using an independent insurance agent like Cornerstone Preferred Insurance vs. a direct writer like State Farm or Geico is the better option. Here's why:
  • Price Hunting Is Easy

    While Google can be great for giving you an initial idea of your insurance cost, it is by no means comprehensive. Our agents have access to dozens of insurance policies not available online and will find the best price and the best coverage for your needs. No more frustrating internet searches are necessary!

  • Expert Insurance Advice

    Trying to read and understand a 50 page policy is next to impossible without insurance experience. Our independent agents are experts at their trade. They have read hundreds of policies and know where to look for potential issues. You don’t have to worry about cross-checking your policy, because our insurance experts do all the work. Additionally, we’ve worked with countless policies for multiple companies, so we know which ones are best to use!

  • Amazing Customer Service

    We don’t work for the insurance companies, we work for YOU. That means we have your best interest at heart and our goal is to make you happy, not the insurance company. Not to mention, you'll never have to call the insurance company. Just call us to get your claim handled!

  • One Stop Shop For All Your Insurance Needs

    Most direct writers only give you 1 or 2 types of insurance; however, you probably need car insurance, home or renters’ insurance, health insurance, dental insurance, and even life insurance. By using an insurance broker, we can help you get all the insurance you need in one place. You won’t have to call multiple providers, just us!
