What Our Members Are Saying

“OAA gave me the opportunity to build a valuable business that will help me live a comfortable life and pass that on to the next generation.”

Mike McPeak, McPeak and Associates, Inc.

“I became a member to obtain appointments from the carriers. Since then, I have realized the strength of OAA. I was a captive agent for 17 years and eclipsed the size of my captive book with in the first two years. And that is why I am a member.”

Paul Steiner, Steiner Insurance Group

“We signed up with OAA originally for carrier access. There was no way we could get good carrier contracts as a startup independent agency. I do feel good about the way OAA/SIAA negotiates with various carriers to help our agency make the most money possible. We looked at several other options before going with OAA and you were the best option.”

Randy Webb, Webb Insurance Agency

“It made financial sense so our agency had access to more companies to write with and for discounts and possible benefits.”

Rebecca Ferguson, Perimeter Insurance Agency

“We like having the expert advice from someone we can trust. We really feel like OAA is in our corner & giving us the tools we need to succeed!”

Bryan Chouinard, Centennial Insurance Group, Inc.

“OAA allows access to carriers I would otherwise not be able to obtain immediately. It is also very nice to have people who have been in my position assist me with the issues of starting and running my own agency.”

Tracey Talley, Wall Street Insurance, LLC

“We obviously enjoy the bonuses we receive by being an OAA/SIAA member. However, we also place a high value on the fact OAA “has our back.” In other words, we believe companies deal with us more carefully as an OAA member than they would if we weren’t affiliated with OAA. “

Von Nix, Statewide Insurance Agency

“We wanted to be part of an organization that helps agents grow professionally, maximize our income potential & gives us access to markets to be successful business owners.”

 

Bryan Chouinard, Centennial Insurance Group, Inc.

“After leaving Farmers Insurance, it was difficult to find markets. OAA was able to help get me all the personal lines and commercial lines appointments, so I could be successful in the insurance business. The bonus structure helps me concentrate on writing business, while they take care of all the negotiations. “

Chris LeBlanc, LeBlanc Family Insurance

“We were worried about the possibility of losing a couple of markets, due to poor loss ratios. Companies kept ‘raising the bar’ on qualifying for profit sharing. We are very happy we joined OAA to help offset those concerns.”

Russell Dull, Omega Insurance Agency

“SIAA’s Master Agencies offer attractive benefits to member firms during current market conditions”

Rough Notes Magazine

“The system SIAA devised helps agents acquire the products and services of top insurance carriers, which on their own would have been elusive, at best.”

Roger Jean – CEO, Liberty Mutual Regional Agency Markets

“OAA showed me how to add $70,000 to my bottom line by becoming a member.”

Mick Cottom

“I made $22,430 in profit sharing this year with a company I only write a couple hundred thousand in volume with!”

Phil Eitzen

“I made 24% total income on every one of the $81,000 dollars of premium I wrote with Safeco Insurance Company this year!”
