Customers often come to us without the proper coverage or knowledge of what they need. We are experts at finding ways to add value to their insurance solution, while keeping it affordable for them.

When insurance professional and entrepreneur Michael Fragias added a partner and rebranded his insurance firm as Reliant Agency only a year ago, his business doubled and he grew strategic alliances at a breakneck speed.

“We found a real need in the marketplace for businesses that need our level of expertise but thought they had to go to a large firm to get it. Our carriers showed support by appointing us within weeks, where most new agencies usually wait considerably longer, ” said Fragias. “In our first year we tripled our policy holder count!”

Reliant is an independent agent that finds comprehensive insurance solutions for consumers as well as small to medium-sized businesses in Chicago and surrounding areas. Fragias launched Reliant alongside John Lavvas, a seasoned insurance agent with ARM and CRIS designations.

“Customers often come to us without the proper coverage or knowledge of what they need. We are experts at finding ways to add value to their insurance solution, while keeping it affordable for them,” said Fragias. “We try to function as a consultant, rather than a salesperson, for the client, to help them uncover their needs and then offer a best-in-class insurance solution.”

Most employees at Reliant have designations such as such as the ARM (Associate Risk Manager), CRIS (Commercial Risk Insurance Specialist), CLCS (Commercial Line Coverage Specialist) and CPCU (Commercial Property Casualty Underwriter) that validate their ability to address the intricacies of certain industries and provide comprehensive coverage.

The rebranding corresponded with improvements to the agency’s customer service, sales cycle and ability to negotiate with insurance carriers on behalf of their clients. Staff tripled to service more clients. Today the company represents seven major insurance carriers including The Hartford, Erie and Amtrust, with more carriers expected to appoint Reliant in 2015.
