Hello I have my 220 P&C license for the state of Florida for 4 years now and for 2 years was licensed in the states of MD,DC and VA. I have decided to start my insurance agency, already have my E&O policy in effect. I am trying to get some advise here. I have contacted several auto carriers to get appointed with but have not heard back from them. Nobody said it was easy however I really need to get some clear view!!. Should I start with a wholesaler like Superior Access?? or is it possible to get appointments for example with Progressive or Bristol West?? I called the companies like safeco, travelers, Bristol, progressive and all of them ask to complete the application online, and I have found all of them ask for the three p&C carriers I have , the answer to that is NONE so I really don't know how good is to send over an application stating zero carriers appointed with!!! I also want to do commercial insurace. Any advise will help, or if you can point me out to a company that will give me an opportunity please please let me know! I am in Southwest Florida. Thanks you very much!
