What Makes Us Different

We apply a few basic principles on a consistent basis to earn your trust and confidence and help ensure that your experience with Brown & Riding is a refreshing change


1. Understand and Manage Your Expectations

First, communicate!  When you work with us, we’ll be sure we understand your boundaries, your objectives and the information available to us, the deliverables, timeframes and deadlines, and frequency and form of ongoing communication.  Knowing what you expect, we’ll clearly communicate and meet our commitments and deadlines.  If anything changes, we’ll let you know in advance.

2. Put You in Control

We understand that you never want to feel a lack of control with your most valued clients’ business.  We’re committed to operating with the highest levels of transparency so you always know the status of each submission and every market we’ve approached, our compensation arrangements, and all other aspects of a transaction.  Our professionals are always available to address your questions and concerns, and our senior management team is engaged, involved, and ready to step in and help address any concerns.  We care and we’re available.

3. Put Your Interests First

We’ll always put you and your clients’ interests first, before our own.  This means that we’ll work hard to deliver more value than expected.  We’re committed to providing you the best possible experience, and our primary goal is to earn your trust and confidence by helping to make you more successful.  We’re results driven.  When we bring your submissions to market we’re always looking for the best combination of price and coverage. Our clients keep coming back because we’re truly your advocates. If we can’t get it done, we’ll suggest others who may be able to help. Our first priority is you and delivering on the high expectations we set together.

4. Be Aggressive and Provide Options

Our professionals are experts in their fields, and we’re committed to bringing you the collective power of the entire firm, not just a single broker.  We’re driven to get you the best deals the marketplace has to offer, even if that means referring you to a competitor.  We negotiate aggressively with our markets and always work to ensure we’re able to present you with their best and final option first.  We also understand that your clients want options, not just a quote and a “trust me, it’s the best”.  When we approach our markets, we provide you with a credible response from each one, and we’ll always work to help you provide your clients with choices, not ultimatums.
