Brightway Insurance expands into Washington

With three agencies opening Aug. 14, the Jacksonville-based insurance agency will have a presence in 17 states.

August 10, 2017 // // JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - More consumers will have the opportunity to enjoy a better way to shop insurance, and three people will realize the American dream of business ownership as Brightway Insurance continues to expand across the country. On Monday, Aug. 14, Brightway Insurance will open three new agencies, one of which will be the first to open in Washington.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Vays Sarwar, Rob Scheibe and Jessica Cole to open three new agencies, including our first agency in Washington,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “Two things consumers should know about what makes buying insurance a better experience with a Brightway Agency is that we offer more choice and expert counsel that you won’t find anywhere else.”

  • Vays Sarwar will open Brightway, The Sarwar Agency at 2901 N. Argonne Road, Suite 3, in Spokane, Wash. For more information, visit
  • Rob Scheibe will open Brightway, The Scheibe Agency at 380 Perry Street, Suite 250, in Castle Rock, Colo. For more information, visit
  • Jessica Cole will open Brightway, The Osborne Agency at 7478 Creedmoor Road, in Raleigh, N.C. For more information, visit

Brightway Agency Owners enjoy support in customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting and technology, which frees up their time to focus on leveraging the broadest possible selection of insurance companies to meet each customer’s unique needs. As a result, Brightway agencies consistently outsell other agencies two-to-one.*

Brightway franchisees make more than three times the income of individuals who are self-employed in other businesses. For top performers, the gap is six-fold. What’s more, having an insurance background is not a prerequisite to becoming an Agency Owner with Brightway. In fact, 40 percent of the above-average performing Brightway Agency Owners did not have prior insurance experience.

Entrepreneurs who wish to learn more about business opportunities with Brightway should watch a recent webinar featuring Brightway Co-Founder, Michael Miller, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Leslie Kolleda, and Agency Owners, Billy Wagner and Kandie Landers.
