About Reed Insurance Services, Inc.
Scott Reed is the owner and founder of Reed Insurance Services. Scott was a captive agent for two of the largest insurance companies in the nation, he helped build and run an online independent agency for a large software company, and he worked for the largest insurance brokerage in the world. This experience has given Scott a first-hand experience with the failings of those business models. It all boils down to personal relationships.
Scott learned that there is no substitute for personalized service, a choice of many insurance companies, and an agent who cares for you and your family. His success is based on being the local independent insurance agent, insurance agent, consultant, neighbor, and in most cases a friend to all of his clients. Reed Insurance Agency is family owned and operated and we treat our customers like they are a part of our family.
Scott has been in the insurance industry for over 20 years. As the son of an insurance agent, he spent most of his teenage years working in his father’s agency servicing customers, rating policies, and doing general agency management duties. After college, he was appointed as an agent and expanded his duties within the agency to include multi-line Auto, Home and Commercial insurance sales. Scott later started his own agency as a captive agent for one of the largest auto and home insurance companies in the country. After six years of only having one company to offer to his clients, he realized that he was serving the company’s needs and not his client’s needs. The only way to serve his clients would be as an independent insurance agent where he had access to multiple insurance companies, but did not work for only one of those companies directly.
Scott was later offered an opportunity to work for a software company in an effort to build an online independent insurance agency. When he started, the company had two non-standard auto companies quoting online. After six months Scott and his team had the company rating over 30 insurance carriers online. This agency might have been successful eventually, but this time Scott realized that his customers were just numbers, and he did not know any of them personally. Scott sold the company and technology to the world's largest insurance brokerage, where it was used to better service the needs of brokerage's customers. Although it was a company based on the model of giving customers a choice, they lacked the ability to have personal relationships with their customers.
Scott now runs his family owned and operated independent agency. Scott has the advantage of access to insurance companies that most independent agents never get and a wealth of knowledge about technology. In short, Scott has found the best of both worlds. When doing business with Reed Insurance Agency, you will be dealing with a high tech company, while still having a locally owned agency looking out for your best interest.
Scott guarantees not only your satisfaction, but that Reed Insurance will always look out for YOUR best interest when it comes to insurance. You will always be treated like family when dealing with us.
