Evaluate Exposures

Before you buy insurance, it’s important to properly evaluate your risks, so you will know what type of coverage is needed. Using our expertise and resources as a guide, we will uncover your true exposures and learn how to resolve them. If you skip this step, you’re likely to buy the wrong coverage and overpay.

APPLY FOR COVERAGE

Once your unique exposures are discovered, shopping coverage with our top-rated insurance carriers is super easy. On your behalf, our team will negotiate the most competitive coverage and rates available. All insurance policies are NOT created equal, so it’s critical that we match your exposures and budget to the right coverage.

START COVERAGE

Now that you’ve found the best coverage and rates for your needs, upon your request, we will issue the new policies and begin coverage. While many agents are still using fax machines and ink signatures, our issuance process is painless and fully electronic. This is not a stagnant “set you up and forget you.” We will develop an ongoing relationship with you and continuously monitor and review changes to your exposures over time in order to keep you adequately protected.

Bry Shields

Chief Risk Advisor

Bry started his insurance career in 2007 a Life Insurance Advisor with Knight of Columbus, then for Guardian. Following this experience, he received an opportunity to become an Agent with a large, regional insurance agency in Mobile, AL, where he spent the next eight years before launching Shields Insurance Agency in 2017.

Bry specializes in working with Premier small businesses and families to manage all aspects of their risks and in the placement of competitively priced insurance coverage. While his insurance and risk management expertise can be applied to almost any type of commercial industry, his primary client profiles include Real Estate, Healthcare and Restaurants. His real estate experience has given him an edge in working with all types of large property risks, especially coastal.

Bry's experience in helping clients through the difficulty of property and liability losses was the impetus for the creation of his firm's 3-step process to ensure proper coverage, manage risks and avoid "surprises" on the back-side of insurance purchases. Bry understands your needs and has drafted the processes to exceed your expectations.
Finally, Bry believes in giving back and serving his community. He is a member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Rotary Club and regularly participates in community events and activities. He is married to Maude and his daughter's name is Emily.
