It's a phrase nearly everyone knows: Neil Armstrong announced the successful landing of the lunar module by saying, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."
A less famous phrase was uttered just a few hours before, when Eagle, the lunar module, separated from Columbia, the command module. Billy Collins and Armstrong inspected the craft to make sure it was not damaged and that the landing gear was correctly deployed. That's when Armstrong exclaimed, "The Eagle has wings!"
While Big "I" Eagle Agency "landed" many years ago—offering Big "I" member agents personal lines market access and a path to direct appointment—we'd like to focus on the fact that Eagle Agency can give your agency wings to fly!
Eagle Agency provides members with direct access to preferred personal lines in all U.S. states, as well as Washington, D.C., with a minimum volume commitment of two new accounts per month. The program strives to fit each member's personal lines needs by incubating until the member qualifies for a direct appointment.
With this program, the agency maintains ownership of business and gains direct access to the carrier's portal. Graduated commissions are based on volume, and possible carrier appointment is based on volume and profitability.
Eagle Agency company partners include MetLife Auto and Home, Safeco, and Travelers. Underwriting and geographic limitations apply. All Eagle Agency appointment requests are subject to review and approval by the carrier.
Eagle Agency is seeking predominately personal lines agencies with a steady flow of new business.
