He made this decision in 2008 realizing the broader scope and reach an Independent Agent offers representing numerous carriers versus a Captive agent offering only one carrier.
Trail felt a calling to enter the Mortuary Science profession due to an immediate death in his family and several familial connections in the industry. He found this decision to be worthwhile as he has assisted countless families through their individualized experiences and the strong connection to one’s insurance program as insurance is solely about protecting those things important throughout life, in particular, survivors.
