Founded in 2003 and based in Westlake, Texas, Goosehead Insurance offers insurance from more than 80 carriers on its platform for home, auto, umbrella, flood, and specialty insurance. Goosehead Insurance aims to bring a fresh approach to purchasing insurance with evolving technology and agents that care more about the client than the carrier.
When you work with Goosehead, you have access to home insurance coverage options from many carriers rather than just a handful.
Goosehead Insurance carriers include well-known national brands as well as lesser-known brands that may provide enhanced local coverage. The many carrier options available include the following:
Goosehead agents are independent, which means they’re not locked into rules dictated by one particular carrier as is the case with captive agents. Therefore, agents can focus on representing clients without as much pressure to meet sales quotas for a particular carrier.
While Goosehead does utilize innovative technology and back-office support to agents and clients, there is still a traditional aspect of insurance sales involved rather than a completely online experience. You do need to speak directly with a licensed representative at some point to confirm your purchase.
Additionally, home insurance discounts vary by state and insurance providers.
