Don't leave everything to chance; keep yourself protected with an insurance
We understand that you care about your family, business and possessions. We have the knowledge to navigate all of those unique risks so you can feel safe knowing they’re protected from anything life throws their way!
Established in 2020 by a second-generation agency owner, Sterling Select has partnered with national and regional carriers, which provides access to a wide assortment of insurance products tailored to your own needs by licensed and insured professionals. In addition, Sterling Select works with industry leaders such as the Kansas Association of Insurance Agents (KAIA), The Big I, Trusted Choice, and other resources to add value to your partnership with our agency.
Barry Sterling established Sterling Select Insurance Agency after starting in the industry at Allen & Purcell Insurance Agency in 2004. After a long-term hiatus and exposure to other professions, he returned to the family agency in 2016. Working with his mother before, who had been an agent for over 30 years, he experienced the way agencies worked and sought to create his own. Adhering to high standards and expectations every day, his goals are to be transparent and fair in all dealings, build long-term relationships, and have fun while engaging in continuous improvement.
THE INDEPENDENT DIFFERENCE:
We can offer stand-alone policies, which generally offer more protection based on the broader language of the policy to address complex and diverse needs. – Policy language can vary from carrier to carrier, yet, many products can offer the same level of protection. In addition, stand-alone policies (e.g., umbrella, renters, or other recreation vehicles) help address the gaps in coverage left in your auto and home policies.
We work diligently to find the best home for your business, no matter how big or small! (No agency minimums)
We believe there can be no higher calling than to serve others!
Because we are an independent agency, we aren't tied to a single insurance company and work only for you.
With multiple standards and non-standard carrier options, we make the companies compete over YOUR business! – Our vast selection of carriers means we sort through all the noise of advertising to identify who wants your business. We ALWAYS offer the top three companies that are competing for your business. However, we can provide more or specific carriers based on your preferences.
Keep all of your valuables protected in one location. – On occasion, carriers change rates, coverages, and underwriting guidelines to maintain their competitiveness in the market. Sometimes, a company can select to “non-renew” your policy when this happens. So instead of shopping around and putting your information back out on the internet, we can always look at other carriers who WILL accept the business.
THE LOCAL DIFFERENCE:
We will be the same people you speak with over and over! – Going local means you have the opportunity to have continuity in communication and personalized service.
We offer more flexibility over carrier protocols. – We implement digital tools to have a live in-person meeting via Google Hangouts and Zoom.
Buying from a local agency means we are more familiar with the local risk profile that carriers evaluate as a part of underwriting.
Purchasing from a small provider means more savings! – Without high operating costs, it means our rates and surcharges are zero!*
*Often, commercial surplus line products will include a broker’s fee. We will seek to waive this additional fee where and when able.
At Sterling Select Insurance Agency, we believe in a culture of safety through risk management. In addition to providing you with the right coverage and advice for your needs at an affordable price; our team will work closely together as part of this family so that both business or personal property can get proper compensation when needed most - it's a promise from us!
