Client Testimonials

"The insurance brokerage industry has a problem in that it's a graying industry. A lot of talent has gone to Wall Street or other financial fields and consequently we don't have a lot of young talent available. WAHVE is tapping into mature talent that's sitting on the sidelines and making use of it in a financially attractive way for agency owners."

– Justin Foa, President, Foa & Son

"We've been primarily a personal lines agency, and wanted to expand our commercial lines book in order to grow. We are using WAHVE to do this and it's been terrific. Our WAHVE is helping us in rounding out clients by reviewing renewals, upselling to existing clients when she sees a coverage is needed or is now available. We are very happy with how things are working."

– John O'Brien, Chief Concerned Officer, O'Brien Insurance
