Providing total protection
Brightway Agents are able to build packages of policies that are customized to meet each customer’s unique needs today and throughout their lifetime. The company does this leveraging the wide selection of insurance companies they represent.
“A custom package of policies ensures no gaps or redundancies as we protect customers, their families and their assets they have worked hard to accumulate. And, regardless of the number of insurance companies we use in putting together that package, Brightway customers need only dial a single toll-free number to get all their customer service needs met,” says Michael.
“Insurance is a great industry to be in because it’s recession-proof and you earn residual income when policies renew, and thanks to the ongoing service we provide, we enjoy industry leading renewal rates.”
An essential business
Due to its dedication toward its customers and partners, Brightway has continued growing even during the global economic slowdown. Since its launch, Brightway has more than 313,000 customers with more than 440,000 insurance policies. With 226 locations in 23 states, Brightway aims to become consumers’ No. 1 choice for insurance.
