Work At Home Vintage Experts (WAHVE) provides an innovative contract talent solution to help retiring insurance professionals stay productive longer, feel valued, and achieve greater work-life balance; and to help insurance firms have continued access to experienced insurance talent regardless of location and at a cost-savings.

Using our innovative work-at-home model, WAHVE contracts skilled vintage insurance professionals to our Retail and E&S Wholesale Brokers, MGAs and Insurance Companies Clients based on their job needs, full-time or part-time.

“We’ve been primarily a Personal Lines agency, and wanted to expand our Commercial Lines book in order to grow. We are using WAHVE to do this and it’s been terrific. Our WAHVE is helping us in rounding out clients by reviewing renewals, upselling to existing clients when she sees a coverage is needed or is now available. We are very happy with how things are working.”
