Health agents need life sales to solidify their relationship with clients, and with Brad Schommer’s knowledge and proficiency, we are more than prepared to assist them in making that gigantic leap.

The Brokerage, Inc., (http://www.TheBrokerageInc.com) based in Lewisville, Texas, began as an IMO focused on products and issues in and around the health insurance marketplace. Over the years, the staff has become authorities on the subject, and the company has grown into a major brokerage with a presence in all 50 states thanks in part to the team’s efforts to educate people about the Affordable Care Act. The Brokerage, Inc. is now poised to expand their life insurance department by helping their agent base learn the benefits of selling life and annuity products to their existing health clients.

And they’ve found the perfect fit for the job in Brad Schommer, CLU—an insurance industry veteran with more than 40 years of sales experience and a series 7, 63, and 24 (registered principal) license with FINRA. Schommer graduated from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and started work at the John Hancock General Agency in 1973. He qualified for the Leaders’ Conference his first year and was a Presidents’ Club qualifier. Since then, Schommer has thrived at a myriad of illustrious insurance companies including Old Line Life, Ameritas, and American National respectively.

“We found synergies with Brad’s experience in both selling life insurance and helping agencies sell more life insurance,” said The Brokerage, Inc. President Mike Smith, “We see life insurance as the next area to grow the business in terms of our agency and our producers. By offering more products and ideas, our agents can help to secure their clients’ financial futures as well as their own.”

“We have all the major life carriers available to help agents find the product and carrier to fit their clients’ needs,” says Schommer, “While term sales have been a mainstay, it is our goal to help agents grow their life premium with the sale of Universal Life, Whole Life and Indexed Universal Life products. A part of that is due to the newest development in the life arena: Living Benefit Riders. With carriers adding Critical and Chronic Illness benefits along with the Terminal Illness Benefit, life insurance is no longer an oxymoron. It is life insurance, not just death insurance.”

“Our company’s motto is ‘Linking producers to markets,’” said Smith, “Health agents need life sales to solidify their relationship with clients, and with Brad Schommer’s knowledge and proficiency, we are more than prepared to assist them in making that gigantic leap.”
