New York Agency Success Story – Keith Philipps

“My accounting manager loves [the Advantage Subscription]. She said… ‘I can’t believe the amount of referrals and the business that you’re writing.’ The premium that we’re making far off-sets what it’s costing us… So to me, it’s a no-brainer. I mean you’d be silly not to not to go with TrustedChoice[.com] and get these referrals.”

“That $5,000 in premium that we wrote that came out of TrustedChoice[.com], maybe that turns into $25,000, $30,000, $40,000 next year because of all the referrals they send our way.”
