Thanks for your interest in Green Insurance Agency.
My name is Irfan (pronounced ear fun) Sehic. I started Green Insurance Agency in 2011. Before starting Green Insurance Agency, I worked as an insurance agent mostly in Central and Northern Vermont.
Two weeks before I graduated from Norwich University in 2006 I had no idea what I wanted to do. I got lucky when a few trustees came in and talked to us seniors about the future. There was this particularly nice gentleman who wanted to help, so I asked for help. I told him how I have no idea what I want to do, and after going back and forth for a while, he said sales. I thought he was joking; my accent was thicker than now, and the last thing I wanted to do is to be judged by strangers. No, it's okay, it's about meeting new people, helping them out, you will be good at it. So I got out of school and got a job in insurance sales, and the guy was right, it was a good job for me! But soon I realized that being an insurance professional is not about sales. I am an insurance professional, not an insurance salesman.
Blah blah blah who cares? How can I help you, potential client? Here is how. My business model is simple. I keep my overhead low by only having a home office. I won't ever have more than 500 clients, so every client gets more than adequate attention (annual reviews, prompt service, etc. compare this to a typical insurance agent that services 1,500-3,000 clients). I don't go on hikes to ensure that I am always in the service area, I do not take vacations, and I do not celebrate major holidays. My phone is always on, and I will answer your call or call you back within 30 minutes. This customer service is impossible to beat. I have access to many different carriers, and in most cases, I can tell within minutes of talking to you whether I can help you or not. All my clients are my clients only because I can save them money and improve coverage. If you work with me, I will explain insurance facts that until now are unknown unknowns. I also spend more than 300 hundred hours a year on continuing education. As far as emotions go, I got no use for pride, but I am extremely proud of what I do as far as my customer service goes and the fact that I have successfully kept it up for over five years.
This business model would not be possible without SIAA. SIAA is an alliance of over 6,500 independent insurance agents, and we have access to many carriers and every insurance resource available. Without SIAA Green Insurance Agency would just be a small business with limited access to companies and no access to real resources. With SIAA Green Insurance Agency has access to a lot of companies and access to every resource possible. With SIAA Green Insurance Agency is a small local and independent insurance office but with power and resources of the biggest agencies.
