My agency is trying out your service for 3 months in hope of having access to multiple markets. Most of what we have done so far has been in worker's comp. We've done a few deals, mostly because that's what we had come in. I do have a direct appointment with Texas Mutual. Mostly, I've found you require more than Texas Mutual does in terms of paperwork, the turnaround time is slow compared to our own experience with them, and that the commission is quite a bit less. While I doubt we will do much Texas Mutual business with you in the future, we will continue our pilot program and hopefully we'll find a fit somewhere else. My past experience with GA's and wholesale brokers in the past is that you require a lot of paperwork (a lot of which is unnecessary, IMHO, especially when you actually start working with the direct appointment), turnaround time is slow, and service is generally poor. Since you are asking that people pay a monthly fee for your service, not to mention the commission cut is often meager, I expect a lot more from a service such as yours. We'll see how it plays out in the next couple of months but I can't help but admit my skepticism.
