Choice & Value: Why an Independent Insurance Agent offers more

Commentary by Doug Tuke, Jr. | Roehr Insurance Agent | 513-728-1530

When it comes to insurance, navigating the myriad of options can often be overwhelming. Whether you're seeking coverage for your home, car, business, or life, the decision-making process can be daunting.

With all the options out there, you may wonder which is right for you. This is where the role of an independent insurance agent becomes invaluable. Unlike captive agents representing a single insurance company, independent agents offer essential advantages, including providing more choices and better value.  

Here are my top reasons for choosing an independent agent:

Access to multiple insurance carriers
One of the primary advantages of working with an independent insurance agent is our ability to offer policies from numerous insurance carriers. Instead of being limited to a single company's offerings, independent agents can compare coverage options, rates, and benefits from several insurers. This freedom ensures you receive a customized insurance solution that fits your unique needs.

Personalized service and expert advice
Independent agents are known for their customized approach to customer service. We take the time to understand your specific needs, lifestyle, and financial situation before recommending any insurance products. This personalized service extends beyond the initial consultation; we’re your advocates throughout the insurance process, from selecting the right coverage to handling claims.

Insurance quotes are not negotiable. But there are ways to save money.

Objective guidance
Since independent agents are not bound to any single insurance company, our recommendations are driven solely by your best interests. This objectivity allows us to offer objective guidance to tailor your policies to your needs.

We know our Cincinnati community
Our local expertise enables us to offer insurance solutions that consider elements like local regulations and can give you peace of mind knowing that your coverage is compliant.  In fact, myself and the majority of the Roehr Agency team are lifelong East Side Cincinnatians.

Comprehensive insurance solutions
From home and auto to business and life insurance, independent agents offer various coverage options under one roof. This convenience saves you time and means that all your insurance needs are met efficiently. Whether you're bundling policies for added savings or exploring specialized coverage options, we are equipped to find the right solutions for you.

Long-term support
Choosing an independent insurance agent means investing in a long-term relationship built on trust and reliability. This is important in today’s world of online platforms or direct insurers, where interactions can be transactional and impersonal.

On the other hand we prioritize building lasting connections with their clients. We are always available to address any questions or concerns, ensuring your insurance coverage evolves and matches your changing needs.
