Mission Statement: Providing a quality product with superior service at an equitable price.
Why you should choose Sunforest?
We believe an MGA should possess 3 qualities: accessibility, punctuality, and accuracy. We also believe that your MGA should work as your partner, thereby ensuring success for all parties involved.
When you have a question, either simple or complex, we encourage you to give us a call. Additionally, you will have one specific account representative who will keep in touch with you regularly, follow up on proposals, announce new developments, and simply ask how things are going. We are also planning regional seminars that will cover a variety of relevant topics.
Nothing is more frustrating than asking for a quote and, then, waiting. . . and waiting. At Sunforest, we offer a one-page fax quote sheet that you can fill out for quick quote turn-around on smaller accounts. Full applications, MVRs, etc., are needed to bind coverage, but we know you need indications in short order. We also accept Accord forms for quote generations; we try to be as flexible as possible.
Our associates use their 30+ years of experience to ensure that account binding and endorsements are done quickly and accurately. You will be notified by fax and, then, with a hard copy of what Sunforest has processed and what has been credited/charged. We want to help you build a book of business!
