About Us

We are a national Field Marketing Organization (FMO) and Brokerage General Agency (BGA), and we specialize in a comprehensive portfolio of Medicare, Health, Life, and Ancillary insurance products.

From its founding, our company has been guided by one simple principle: to always put the needs of our brokers first. Our brokers are family to us, and we care about their businesses and want to support their growth and success through every step of their careers.


Where We’ve Been

Unique from the beginning, The Brokerage, Inc. was founded in 1976 by husband and wife team Ross and Cheryl Hopkin. Before they even opened their doors, the Hopkins knew that their success depended on the success of their clients.

The Brokerage quickly gained a reputation for excellence and unrivaled customer service, and through their vision and strong leadership, the couple grew their business by establishing long-lasting relationships with both agent customers and carrier partners.


Where We’re Going

Today, The Brokerage is driven by innovation, a passion to succeed and our amazing team members, but remains as committed to putting our agents first as the day we originally opened our doors.

Your success is our success, both in life and business. Join our team today and become part of The Brokerage family.
