“I think [the Advantage subscription] is great, it helps us leverage a greater degree of credibility. Since we’re a newer agency, we’re trying to get our name out there, and… shorten the time frame that we’re going to rank higher on Google and be visible to the public – so TrustedChoice[.com] has been pretty key.”

“We love the Claim it program… It’s great being able to see what [type of lead] it is and have instant access to the clients’ contact information.”

“I think TrustedChoice[.com] is great for other agents, – especially, if they need immediate leads, to use the Claim it program. And then, I feel like the rest of the membership is great for a more long-term, sustained approach.”
