NEWS RELEASE – For Immediate Release
Progressive recognizes Lone Star Insurance Agency as PLATINUM
Texas Independent Agency one of only 135 out of over 5,500 agencies
Burleson, TX – July 15, 2015
LONE STAR INSURANCE AGENCY (LSIA) of Burleson, TX has been recognized
as a PLATINUM agency by Progressive Insurance. This is a highly exclusive recognition
that only a handful of agencies receive.
Progressive has over 5,500 agents in the state of Texas. About 10% of those agent are
Progressive Home Advantage or PHA agencies (Lone Star Insurance Agency is one of those).
PHA agencies are able to offer special “bundling” discounts for clients who buy auto and
home insurance through Progressive’s subsidiary ASI. An even more elite group is the
Platinum agency. Platinum agencies will be able to offer additional discounts and they will be
allowed to offer Progressive’s new 12 month auto policy. This exclusive recognition is based
on the excellent quality and quantity of business that the agency sends to Progressive as well
as the agency’s commitment to continue and grow this business.
Additional good news for customers is that Lone Star Insurance Agency will now be able to
offer immediate discounts to Progressive customers who choose to plug in the “Snap Shot”
Usage Based Insurance device. “Snap Shot” records certain driving behaviors that Progressive
factors into rates. Some consumers have expressed a concern that “big brother” may be watching,
however anyone with a smart phone willing provides big brother with far more information than
Progressive would ever consider. Progressive is concerned with how many miles, what time of
day, and how much “hard braking” occurs. In the past customers had to have their usage
monitored first in order to see if they would receive a discount. Now, customers will receive
a discount that will be adjusted accordingly at the customer’s first renewal.
Aside from Progressive, Lone Star Insurance Agency represents dozens of “A” rated carriers.
James Brown, owner of LSIA states “Progressive is definitely one of our preferred carriers, we
place a lot of business with them and they are great to work with”. Progressive is also a leader
in the industry when it comes to technology. Brown also states “our office has experienced
tremendous growth the past few years, customers are discovering the value that comes with us
representing dozens of companies as opposed to a “captive agent” who only represents one company”.
Lone Star Insurance Agency is also a huge supporter of the local community. They sponsor car
shows, support schools and sports teams. To go even further Lone Star Insurance Agency provides
FREE paper shredding for personal papers (one file box per person per visit) and FREE notary services.
These services are not only FREE to clients but to any persons in the local community.
