Services: Emporium Insurance Agency helps their clients shop for insurance, partnering with a variety of insurance companies to offer competitive rates. 

Emporium Insurance Agency joined the Iowa City Area Business Partnership because they want to network in order to cultivate and maintain valuable business prospects and relationships. 

Before starting Emporium Insurance Agency, Brad Swanson worked as a captive insurance agent, an insurance agent who is tied to one company. However, he became frustrated by only being able to offer one-size-fits-all solutions for his clients. After 12 years, Swanson decided to open his own agency and become an independent agent. 

Emporium represents many different insurance companies that offer a wide variety of coverage and price points. Using tools that compare insurance quotes, Brad and his team work with their clients to find the best coverage, at the best price. They do the shopping to find the right blend of price, coverage, and service. 

Swanson is a member of SIAA, which is the #1 alliance of independent insurance agencies.  This gives him direct access to top-tier insurance companies, providing direct access to markets for every risk. 

Emporium Insurance Agency is dedicated to forming long-term relationships with clients and helping them be prepared for life’s many unexpected events. Visit their website or follow their Facebook page for more information.
