Get Coverage

Evaluate Exposures

Before you buy insurance, it’s important to properly evaluate your risks, so you will know what type of coverage is needed. Using our expertise and resources as a guide, we will uncover your true exposures and learn how to resolve them. If you skip this step, you’re likely to buy the wrong coverage and overpay.

APPLY FOR COVERAGE

Once your unique exposures are discovered, shopping coverage with our top-rated insurance carriers is super easy. On your behalf, our team will negotiate the most competitive coverage and rates available. All insurance policies are NOT created equal, so it’s critical that we match your exposures and budget to the right coverage.

START COVERAGE

Now that you’ve found the best coverage and rates for your needs, upon your request, we will issue the new policies and begin coverage. While many agents are still using fax machines and ink signatures, our issuance process is painless and fully electronic. This is not a stagnant “set you up and forget you.” We will develop an ongoing relationship with you and continuously monitor and review changes to your exposures over time in order to keep you adequately protected.

Bry Shields

FOUNDER / AGENT


Bry spent eight years working as an Agent at a large, regional agency in Mobile, AL. This agency experience, including some involvement with changes to automation and efficiency through the evolution of industry technology, prepared him well for the launch of his own agency in 2017.
Bry works with commercial and personal lines clients of all types, but his primary commercial niches include Real Estate, Healthcare, Construction, Restaurants and Retail.
He has written over $20M in aggregate premiums, consisting of more than 350 different clients and has also been involved in the claims process for many of these, including one major settlement involving Wrongful Death totaling $1.6M.
Bry's experience during these claims was the edipus for the creation of his agency's 3-step process to ensure proper coverage and avoid "surprises" on the back-side of his client's purchases. As a fellow business owner and real estate investor, Bry understands your needs and has drafted the agency processes to exceed your expectations.
