Terry is known within his industry for conducting teaching sessions, teleseminars, webinars and speaking at national association events, to help his fellow competitors and association members. Here are just a few words from 33 of his competitors and industry leaders from all over the U.S. about Terry as a person, his character, teaching ability and his organization…

 

My name is Michael Jans. I'm the executive vice president of the National Society of Agents for Consumer Education and I wanted to say a few words about Terry Young. First of all, it has been my honor to be able to work with Terry for the last several years and I’m pleased to be able to pass on the information to the people who are interested in knowing more about him, knowing more about his agency and knowing more about what kind of an agency he runs. 

 

Terry has been selected by our society as one of the top 14 agents in the country, and what I mean by that is our mission is to promote consumer education in the area of insurance because we know that there's a lot of confusion about insurance. There's a lot of mystery about insurance and we want insurance consumers to be educated. We want them to be smart and we want them to be able to make wise decisions. We provide tools and training to assist the agents in doing this. We also recognize agents who do an outstanding job in that area. 

 

Well, Terry has recently been selected as one of the top 14 agents in the area of consumer education and consumer advocacy, and we think that being on the side of the consumer is the position we want agents to take so that consumers feel like they're in a position where their agent is somebody who supports them, advocates for them, goes to bat with them. Well, I can tell you that based on our knowledge of Mr. Young and Mr. Young's agency, Terry Young is that kind of agent, so I am thrilled to be able to pass on to people who want to know more about Terry that when it comes to consumer education and consumer advocacy, he's your man.

Terry, absolutely amazing call today! I can't thank you enough. I can honestly say that I've never spent an hour of my time more wisely. In my opinion, any employer that doesn't take advantage of your tele-seminars is shooting themselves in the foot. I guarantee you this: I won't miss a single one of your tele-seminars for any reason - heck, I can't afford to!

I’m giving this testimonial for Terry Young at SRS Insurance. Occasionally you meet a person who goes so far above and beyond the call of duty that they are just a trend setter, and that’s been my experience with Terry.  He is always so willing and sacrifices his time to help the good of the group.  He’s given me much needed advice.  If I ever had a chance to work with him and if I ever had a business, I would take him as my agent, hands down.  It wouldn’t even be a question to me.  Thanks, Terry, for all  you do.

I have known Terry Young with the SRS Insurance Group for just a little over a year.  I, myself, own an insurance agency in North Alabama for nearly 22 years.  In all my years of business, Terry Young is one person that, he’s unforgettable when you meet him.  He does things that people, other insurance agency owners, other business owners dream about doing.  The way he runs his business, the way he operates, the way he treats his employees, the way he handles his accounts and that sort of thing; like I’ve said, in all my time in the business, he’s one of a very few I’ve ever met that’s learned to master this.  If I was in a competitve situation where I was going up against the SRS Insurance Group, I would be shaking in my boots if I know I was up against Terry.  If I ever have a huge commercial risk, I know where I’m going to put it, if it’s one I can’t place.  Whatever you decide to do with Terry, I’m sure he will take great care of you.

My name is Mike Stromsoe from Temecula, California and I am an insurance agent on the west coast. I just wanted to write today and say a few words about a gentleman that I met a couple of years ago.  His name is Terry Young.  Since I've known Terry, I have come to know and admire him more and more each time that I get to spend time with him.  We're involved in multiple national organizations together, but obviously Terry is a leader of the pack.  You know it's said when you want to get better at what you do, hang with the very best that there is available.  Well, in my estimation, Terry is one of the brightest and one of the very, very best insurance agents in America.  He runs an insurance agency.  He's on the leading board of multiple insurance organizations and insurance companies.  He is involved in many special civic activities and most importantly, Terry is just a wonderful family man and puts his family first all of the time.  It's my pleasure to know Terry and having been a founding member of multiple national insurance organizations like the National Society of Agents for Consumer Education, the Market Domination Organization, a leading provider of niche insurance programs in California, I see lots of agents out there that try to say they know what they're doing, but none have the ability to take a market, provide it with incomparable service and integrity as well as coverage like the type that Terry and his team provides.  If I were to open an agency anywhere in America one thing I would not do is open it anywhere near Terry Young.  His agency and his team are just second to none.  They're top notch and they're really what it's all about.  They do business with people and they believe in the term you get what you give.  You have the highest respect for Terry and his organization and I just wanted to let everybody know that.  Have a great day.

My name is Ted Davies, president of Davies & Associates located in the province New Jersey.  I have worked with Terry for several years in the National Society of Agents for Consumer Education.  The pleasure has been all mine.  I've always been taught from a young age that if you want to grow, you work and you surround yourself by the best.  Terry and his company, SRS Insurance Group, fit that mold.  If I have friends or family that happen to move in the Alabama area, it is Terry and SRS that I send my friends and family to as an insurance professional.  I want to thank you for your time and thank you, Terry for your association with the National Society of Consumer Education and your friendship.

As an insurance professional, I have seen the work of hundreds of other insurance agents. Additionally, throughout my 25 year career as an agent and manager I have personally interacted with another couple hundred of agents. In my opinion, Terry is one of the best agents I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. His professionalism and commitment to his clients are second to none. With Terry you can be confident that you will have the coverage you need when it is most important; after a loss has occurred! In every industry/profession there are people who are just better than the rest. Terry is such an individual. If I were not in the business and lived in Alabama I would certainly be his client.

Both clients called me back to thank me for referring them to such a professional organization. I just want to say thank you for taking care of those two clients for me and without a doubt if I have occasion to refer somebody else to you, you are definitely my first choice.

My name is Jimmy Swain and I am the owner of James M. Swain & Assoc., Inc. located in Baxley, Ga. I head up an insurance agency in SE GA. I normally don't hand out a lot of kudo's but Terry Young and SRS Insurance Services group is unusual. They don't just talk about service but they deliver what they promise. It is one thing to write you a "policy" but another thing to have the correct coverage in place. I will say emphatically that I am thankful that Terry is not a nearby competitor.

However, if one of my clients or friends were to move to the Alabama area, I would highly insist that they need to contact Terry for ANY of their insurance needs.

I've know Terry Young and SRS Insurance for the past couple of years and worked with him on many different fronts, such as consumer advocacy, protection of business and personal assets and much more.

 

 

 

 

 

Terry goes above and beyond in protecting his clients. He's a charter member of the National Society of Agents for Consumer Education which means that he aggressively seeks to educate his customers about the risks that they face and the best way to protect themselves from those risks. If I lived in Alabama or any other state that Terry works in, he would be my first choice as the agent to protect my business, my home, my family and my cars. As a fellow insurance agent I make sure that every referral I get for that part of the country goes to Terry Young. I wouldn't be comfortable sending my clients anywhere else.
