In 2014, I made a tough decision. I left my 12-year career in as a Mortgage Consultant to completely start over as an insurance agent. I wanted to fulfill my dream of becoming a business owner, but more importantly a legacy that I can pass on to my children, so I needed to make a change. In 2016, I was contacted by Chicagoland SIA. Their amazing support, distribution model, and the many opportunities offered by Chicagoland SIA made the decision to join a no brainer. While I was approached by many different insurance aggregators and networks, they did not offer the same advantages as joining the largest alliance of insurance agencies nationwide – SIAA.
Being an independent agent, knowing that the solutions you offer your clients is incomparable, is one of the best feelings. Becoming part of Chicagoland SIA was the best career move I have made. If you want to be a successful insurance agency, I strongly recommend becoming an Independent Insurance Agent with Chicagoland SIA.
Thank you, Chicagoland SIA, for giving me, and my family, the best opportunities, and the chance to achieve my dreams.
