Independent Agencies Sales Alerts – July 2013 Edition

Welcome to the July edition of the STG Insurance Agent and Broker Sales Alerts. Activity for this time of year is average. We are still in a seller’s market for the acquisition of agencies.

The listings below are a sample of some of the new independents provided to us during the last 30 days. Our clients have access to previous month’s listings upon request.

The most effective tactic in acquisition target development is a multi-level and joint endeavor, using the national approach that STG provides in concert with the “boots on the ground” local market intelligence that only the client has access to. STG provides clients additional tools to access the 90% of the sellers that are not openly and publicly communicating their intention to sell. Search tools for this hidden market include direct mail campaigns, social media blurbs, email campaigns and others.
