Best Practices

Since 1993, Reagan Consulting and the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America have partnered to produce the Best Practices Study, a comprehensive examination of the top performing agencies across the country.

The study compiles benchmarking data on the key metrics of agency performance and value including revenue growth and profitability, financial stability, expense management, and sales and operations productivity. Data is provided for each of six revenue categories (from under $1.25M to over $25M), and nominations for agencies in each of these categories are accepted at the beginning of each three-year study cycle.

The aggregate results of the highest performing firms (approximately 40 per category) are included in the study and these agencies earn the prestigious status of “Best Practices Agency,” and the industry recognition and exclusive benefits that accompany it.

Best Practices are timeless and cutting-edge strategies developed from studying top U.S. insurance agencies of all sizes for over 20 years. They have proven to be transformative tools for agencies seeking to excel.

Teague Insurance has earned the Best Practices Agency status every year since 2013.
