"Brad Rowe is the real deal! Working with him has been amazing. Brad shows top-notch professionalism, is highly dedicated to each client and takes a vested interest in you and what would be best for you. He not only found me the perfect agency to work for, but he also went above and beyond to search throughout the state of Michigan to find the best agency that fit my personality. I was on the job hunt for around four months before meeting Brad. After meeting Brad, it took less than two weeks for him to search all of Michigan, find a place that would best suit me, get me every piece of information I needed, set up an interview. He also went above and beyond to offer me tips for the interview. In that span of fewer than two weeks, I got the job! He knows what to look for in not only the agency, but what best fits your personality. I couldn’t be happier with the agency I now work for, and I couldn’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. To this day he still checks in on me to see how things are, how happy I am, and always asks if there’s anything he can do. I highly recommend getting in touch with Brad as soon as possible if you want to find a perfect fit and quickly!"

"Brad is awesome! In less than a week he matched my skills with an opportunity at a top shelf agency while ticking all the boxes on my wish list! If you are looking for an insurance job, and you are serious, you have to talk to Brad!! Highly recommended."

Brenda Baty - Insurance Professional | Client Service Manager at Hylant

Independent Insurance Agency

"I would recommend anyone in the insurance industry have a conversation with Brad, even if you are not looking to make a change. I got to know Brad because of his involvement with Olivet College and his dedication to improving opportunities for future graduating classes. Through building of a professional relationship he was able to identify what makes me tick, and the high level of specific services I strive to provide clients. Then Brad approached me about a prospective employer that shared the same views and motivations for client success that I did, he was absolutely right! The employer and I were both on the same page and made a natural, smooth transition. Now a month later I am so happy at the new company and it is a VERY comfortable fit. It serves to show just how well Brad not only knows his clients, but the agency's he is recruiting for!"
