How is the value of my insurance agency determined?
The market value of an agency is based on a variety of factors including (1) the quality of the book of business, staff, and systems, (2) the size of the agency, (3) the agency’s organic growth rate, and (4) the pro forma EBITDA. We’ve negotiated the sale of hundreds of agencies and understand the marketplace and what drives value in an insurance agency.
What steps can I take to prepare my insurance agency for sale?
The #1 thing you can do to prepare for the sale of your agency is to work with our team on a valuation of the agency. Through that process, we will be able to help you understand what you should focus on to maximize the value and prepare for your exit.
How do I find potential buyers for my insurance agency?
The simplest solution is to work with our team. We have done business with every buyer type and every professional buyer in the marketplace. We know the “who” and “how” of helping you find the best buyer for your agency.
What is the typical timeframe for selling an insurance agency?
On average, it takes about 90 days to close the sale after going to market.
What is the #1 mistake that agency owners make when selling?
The biggest mistake that sellers make is selling directly to a buyer without going to market and without professional representation.

The sale process typically also takes longer since the buyer controls the speed at which things move.
