Home › The 3 Steps of Selling Your Insurance Agency

Selling your insurance agency is a turning point in your life. Whether you’re moving onto something better or it’s just time to step away, Energia Consulting Partners can provide insurance consulting so the sale of your business will go smoothly while maximizing its value. Here’s a step-by-step process of what you can expect. 

Plan an Exit Strategy 

If you are considering selling your insurance agency, it’s very important to have an exit strategy in place. Being prepared means less of a chance you’ll have to deal with surprises during the sale process. Try to have an exit strategy ready to go at least a couple of years before you sell.  

Also, think about the value of your business. Is it in a good location? What’s its reputation? Is it successful? Answering these questions ahead of time will make the sale smoother and make transitioning to the next stage of your life a lot easier 

Work with a Consulting Firm 

Hiring a consulting firm will greatly benefit you as you’ll be working with experienced people who know everything about the ins and outs of the sales process. Here are some of the services you can expect when turning to insurance consultants for the sale of your agency.  

  • Screening prospective buyers 
  • Examining the deal terms 
  • Managing the sales process 

A good consulting practice will also be completely available to answer all of your questions and address your concerns.
