Managing General Agent
In 1997, the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies appointed Martin & Zerfoss, Inc., as their Managing General Agent (MGA) for personal lines in the State of Tennessee. The appointment provided non-contract agents across the State with a market for their affluent clients. Today, with the addition of AIG, Travelers and Berkshire Hathaway, we serve over 150 agencies in the Southeast.
We separate ourselves from other wholesalers by providing in-house service as opposed to sending our agents to a separate service center. We are very proud of the fact that our staff deals directly with underwriters on a daily basis, which creates high levels of underwriting and binding authority. We underwrite policies up-front, provide same day service for quotes and produce formal proposals for our agents. Most importantly, we pay a high rate of commission!
Martin & Zerfoss has a trusted reputation for taking great care of our clients. From understanding trends in the industry, to holding the key to customer service; Communication, Information and Timeframe.
M&Z provides key information, within a quick turnaround, creating instant trust for your clientele; as the Market is constantly changing and your successful clientele are becoming more diverse and requiring different types of insurance needs.
Christy Jones, CISR, CAPI
, Susan Spencer, CIC and Liz Wilkins, each have over 20 years of experience working with high-net-worth individuals in an effort to resolve their complex insurance needs. Once an Agent builds up a significant volume with one of our carriers, they're welcome to entertain a direct relationship with that carrier. We've had several agents turn down these offers due to the exceptional level of service provided by Christy, Susan and Liz.
Our goal is to make you, the Agent, successful.
