D Magazine Presents

Best Insurance Agents

Every year, the D Magazine’s editorial research division surveys more than 20,000 D Magazine subscribers and recent homebuyers, along with members of the real estate, mortgage, and insurance communities to identify outstanding agents and professionals for public recognition. Winners are selected for excellence in customer service, integrity, market knowledge, and overall satisfaction. We vet nominees for licensing and disciplinary status, and announce the winners in the July 2022 issue of D Magazine.

Nominations Closed

Nominations for next year's program will open in January 2023.

The Process

STEP 1

+ NOMINATIONS

D Magazine emails nomination ballots to all real estate agents, mortgage professionals, and insurance agents in our database; and emails and mails ballots to more than 20,000 D Magazine subscribers and recent homebuyers in the area.

Best Insurance Agents:

  • We ask recent homebuyers and subscribers to nominate one insurance agent with whom they have worked with who has demonstrated excellence.
  • We ask fellow mortgage professionals and insurance agents to nominate up to three insurance agents (one inside their companies and two outside their companies).
  • And we ask real estate agents to nominate up to three insurance agents with whom they have worked closely.

STEP 2

+ VETTING PROCESS

Votes are tallied and sorted by D Magazine’s editorial staff. We put the data into an algorithm that places emphasis on feedback we received from our subscribers and recent homebuyers. We then screen each nominee with the Texas Real Estate Commission, Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, and Texas Department of Insurance databases to make sure that licenses are up to date and that there has been no disciplinary action.

Ballots are not counted if they are:

  • Self-nominations
  • Duplicate ballots
  • Nominees outside of our geographic boundaries (view here)

STEP 3

+ NOTIFICATION

We mail and email congratulation letters to the Best Insurance Agents.

After notification, our sales team is allowed to view the list and offer advertising opportunities to winners.

We play fair:

  • Advertising dollars have zero impact on the creation of this list.
  • Best Insurance Agents are featured in our July issue and marked as a Best in our online directory whether they advertise or not.
