What does an Insurance Broker do?

Agent vs Broker

To understand what an insurance broker does we need to know the difference between an insurance agent and an insurance broker.

Put simply, insurance agents represent the insurance company (insurance seller), whereas insurance brokers represent you (insurance purchaser). Insurance agents have a product that they then have to match a buyer to based on predefined characteristics. Insurance brokers do the opposite. They match a person to a product based on criteria identified through understanding the buyers needs. In summary, the insurance broker works on your behalf as an intermediary to find the best coverage unique to your needs. Your needs are at the center of the insurance brokers interests.

 I was satisfied and pleased with the prompt attention with which our claim was handled. Each person I spoke to during this process was very helpful.

SeaFirst and Garrett have been wonderful to deal with, quick to respond to our needs and questions. Even better is that they saved us a ton of money on our insurance with their adventure tourism specific policy.

The service received from SeaFirst, the adjusters, the insurers and the restoration people was great. I highly recommend everybody who was involved. Thanks for the help in a horrible situation.
