Our Story

Bellevue Insurance Achieves Best Practice Status Again


Bellevue Insurance Services once again became a part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies in the US to be awarded Best Practice Status. This status comes by participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) Best Practices Study group. The annual survey and Study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the “best” agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

The winners are selected from a study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies are selected through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process. The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.

More than 1500 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study in 2016, but only 262 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the 35-45 top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.
