Local Insurance Agent Donna Bavier Wins Laurel Award for Top Producer, Homeowners Insurance

March 31, 2015 // Franchising.com // JACKSONVILLE, FLA. - Donna Bavier, owner of Brightway, St. Johns received the Laurel Award for Top Producer, Homeowners Insurance from the Northeast Florida Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council at the 20th Annual Laurel Awards Ceremony held March 13 in Ponte Vedra, Fla.

This is the first year the Builders Association Sales and Marketing Council has named a Top Producer for Homeowners Insurance, making Bavier the first ever recipient of the award.

“I’ve worked with the NEFBA Sales and Marketing Council for almost six years,” said Bavier. “Every home builder needs a valued local insurance expert to ensure that new home owners get the coverages they need at a price they want.”

Brightway is a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country. Bavier’s agency is located at 1515 County Road 210 West in St. Johns, Fla.

“Building networks in the communities in which they work and live is a strength of Brightway agents,” said Brightway President Talman Howard. “We’re very proud of Donna’s achievement and look forward to her continued success.”

Brightway independent agents have access to more than twice as many insurance companies as other independent agents and they focus strictly on selling and growing their books of business, while service, carrier relationships and technology are handled centrally. As a result, Brightway agents consistently sell more new personal lines business than do traditional independent agents.
