About DeForest Group

DeForest Group is an established insurance aggregator for independent insurance agencies. Our business model allows agents to consistently provide customers with the best markets, products and pricing while maintaining a profitable independent agency because of, and supported by, our long successful relationship with many large carriers.

“The DeForest Group’s Partnership with Vertafore’s PL Rater, allows our independent partner agents to have access to all our personal lines markets allowing for fast quotes, policy issuance and overall ease of doing business.”   

Liz Benjamin, Operations Manager

A solid foundation for independent agencies

The insurance landscape is changing. Independent agencies that want to remain truly independent need the scale, support, and access to broader markets and increased contingency in order to remain competitive. It helps to have a technology partner that understands what you are going through. As an experienced agent, you'll know that an agency management system is a foundation for your business and want one that helps you scale and grow your business. We have resources to help you make these decisions and an active community of users that can support your DeForest Group agency. 

We've helped many agencies scale with solutions that address their specific requirements, and we welcome a chance to discuss your needs and share what others have done.  Complete the form and your dedicated Vertafore DeForest Group account team will call you to discuss how our solutions enable you to grow your business.
