It starts with Family
Our agency has been a long time coming. Dan Rhoads started building his own insurance agency because he’s a divorced father, and only this industry could provide him the financial freedom + the ability to work from anywhere. As an independent agent, Dan can afford child support and take time off when he needs to in order to be there for them.
How Dan runs his agency is proof of his family values: his purpose drives how he provides insurance to others. Families like Dan’s are struggling financially and need a way to maximize income today, and maintain their quality of life tomorrow. So, every day, Dan works to deliver the insurance and financial products that make people’s lives better.
Dan is an exemplar of someone who overcomes adversity with compassion and hope.
We believe in our insurance products. So much so that we don’t need to “sell” you, or use agressive sales tactics. We only need the opportunity to speak with you in order to match you with the insurance that meets your needs.
Our agents will only recommend the insurance products that they would provide their own families.
Your Agent’s Background
Dan Rhoads got his insurance license in early 2016, and started with life insurance. In 2017, he added Health Insurance to the areas he works with, and that is now what he works the most with. Dan has worked with a long list of insurance carriers including, United Healthcare, Mutual of Omaha, National General, Foresters, Ameritas, Transamerica, Nassau Re, Lifeshield, Chubb, Independence American, Silverscript, Aetna, Humana, Wellcare, Fidelity & Guaranty Life, Global Atlantic, and American Equity.

Prior to entering the insurance industry, Dan was a postdoctoral researcher working in the field of molecular biology. He’s worked at Cornell University and the University of Cyprus, and lived in Europe for 8 years. Dan has also worked in sales of Medical Devices, and been a team lead for pharmaceutical drug discovery projects. Asked why he switched from science into sales, Dan answers, “Like every parent in a growing family, I needed job security. And, frankly, I wasn’t satisfied working in a lab. I wanted to get out and help people find solutions.”
Dan lives in Pennsylvania, and has two daughters.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get a policy for less by going directly through a carrier?
No. It is illegal to charge extra for going through an agent.
How does an agent get paid then?
Agents are paid based on how many people they provide insurance for. That way, the insurance company pays an agent based on how productive they are.
Are all agents good?
No. There are many who try to omit details (and sometimes lie outright) – whatever it takes to get the sale, right? That’s why you should know your agent’s National Producer Number or State License Number, so if you have to, you can report them to your state department of insurance.
Our agency believes in educating our clients truthfully. Our candor does sometimes lose us a sale that a less scrupulous agent would be able to make, but we put our clients first. We want loyal clients, not clients at any cost.
Can I work with only one agent?
Absolutely! In fact, we recommend it. Find an agent that you trust, and get all of your life and health insurance through that expert if possible.
Home and Auto insurance require a different license to be able to sell. You will have to find another agent for those products.
