SWFL Insurance Agency, Inc. believes in honesty, integrity and transparency in every aspect of its business operations. The Agency believes:
- Honesty is the only policy. The SWFL Insurance Agency, Inc. staff will always operate in a fair and equitable manner.
- Consistency is a great Habit. Consistency at the Agency means that each person/business is treated individually, with the greatest attention to detail. A satisfied customer is a happy person, more likely to renew his policy and refer you to new prospect, and less likely bring and E&O dispute or claim.
- Commitment to our people. Without the SWFL Insurance Agency, Inc. staff – well there is no SWFL Insurance Agency, Inc. We will work closely to hand select our team. All members will receive ongoing education which not only benefit the business, but helps them grow as individuals as well. The Agency believes this holds true with its customers, vendors, and its community and the Agency will be just as passionate and committed to them as well.
