About Us

We are a national Field Marketing Organization (FMO) and Brokerage General Agency (BGA), and we specialize in a comprehensive portfolio of life, health and accident related insurance products.

The Brokerage, Inc. is a family owned and operated business, treating our agents like family and dedicated to always putting their needs first and foremost. We continue to lead the way as we systematically improve with leading-edge technology, vested contracts and effective marketing programs.


The Secret Sauce

First, we connect insurance agents and agencies to the most expansive consumer product offerings in the market, and then we add vigorous product training, powerful sales and marketing resources, efficient application processing and exceptional customer service. Together, this “secret sauce” helps agents stay independent, sell more, earn more and build their businesses.

Our Values

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

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.
