Choice in the marketplace

Independent insurance agents like Eckert collectively serve over one-third of the home, auto and business insurance marketplace in the United States.

We differ from captive agents who sell for one company. We sell for numerous companies. We are similar to captive agents in that we both receive a piece of your premium as compensation for our services.

Simply put, we offer you more choice and independent advice.

Eckert selects companies that value quality coverage, competitive prices and fair settlements. Here is a list of our most popular companies we use to comparison shop on your behalf.
