HIGH POINT, N.C. (March 15, 2017) – January 2017 proved to be Smart Choice’s fastest start to a year ever, with the addition of over 100 new agency partners and more than 20% growth in gross commission the first month.
Smart Choice is currently partnered with over 5,700 agencies, after the addition of 1,100 new agencies and nearly 17% growth in revenues in 2016.

We’re also committed to continuing to deliver superior service to both new and existing agency and carrier partners – which will see our home office grow in new ways.”
