Independent Insurance Agencies for Sale Alert – January 2018

As 2017 drifts into the rear-view mirror, the memory of potential buyers contacting Springtree Group (STG) in November and December wanting to close a deal “before the end of the year” was notable. We unfortunately needed to advise clients that in most cases there is simply not enough time to professionally complete a complex deal unless the transaction was intended to be all cash. The lesson for us is to advise buyers to begin as early as possible. The lesson for you is that it’s never too soon to start planning!

The listings below are samples of some of the new or changed independent agency listings developed through our outreach, research or provided to us during the last 30 days. Upon request we will provide our clients access to previous month’s and off cycle listings.
