    I have been doing Health/Life for 15 years now, 2 of which I have been a Self Employed broker working from home in various states. However, I think I would like to now move into the Property/Casualty area.

    My questions are:

    1. What lines are easiest to get hooked in with when planning to (initially at least) work from home?

    2. What are the most popular products those of you working from home sell?

    3. In regards to auto/home, do ALL carriers require an actual office space (which I do plan to rent eventually) or are there some who allow WFH setups?

    4. Any suggestions in regards to particular products/services, etc?

    THANKS!!

    Check out the following for p&c markets:

    SIAA
    Smart Choice
    Iroquois Great Lakes
    Superior Access
    Insurance Noodle

    They are all a little different. At least one should fit your busniess model.

    I tried posting the links but this forum doesn’t allow that until you have 15 posts or more. At the time I only had 6 posts. The information should come up with GOOGLE pretty easily. I am meeting with the SIAA this morning so we can share information if you would like. I have talked to each group and I have some thoughts/opinions on each one.

    Stay away from aggregators if you can. Trying going direct first if you can unless you enjoy splitting your commissions.
