  1. Hello, I live in Edmonton, and I have been wondering, what exactly does a insurance broker do? I have been curious for about a week, but finally decided to ask someone.

  2. Hello Jason,

    Thank you for your comment. I would be happy to provide you with an answer to your questions.

    A broker is an insurance expert that works on behalf of the client. We offer one-on-one advice and support based on our client’s individual insurance needs.

    For more information on what a great broker can do for you, please feel free to refer to this video that I recently put together. http://www.rhodeswilliams.com/insurance-resources/insurance-tips-from-gen.aspxv

    Should you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
