Select Quote Reviews:

In today’s web marketplace of opinions, it easy to state your viewpoint without substantiating your opinion.  This is especially true of so called “company reviews.”  So where do you go to get a good and fair review for a company like SelectQuote?  The place to find authoritative reviews on SelectQuote is the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  A quick search shows that the BBB gives SelectQuote a ratings of “A+”.  In other words, it’s a great place to buy insurance.  As an authoritative review, the BBB site portrays the correct company story on its business practices and customer satisfaction ratings.

There are many review sites and websites that claim to be reviews but experience shows that they give preference to negative reviews.  Negative stories get clicks and it’s a means for others to profit from the traffic by selling their services or other agendas.  Why?  Because bad news attracts viewers and helps create conversion for their services.  Following the money tells their story.  The results is both harmful to a good business and damaging to consumer choices.  Getting an accurate picture of a company’s product or service is dubious from these so called “review” and “opinion”  sites.

Personal Client Experiences of SelectQuote

Here is what clients are saying about SelectQuote from other sites which support the stated “A+” rating in the BBB review:

“The Bottom Line: A company that values customers, and a representative that truly impressed me by his response to feedback.”

“Update to my post.  Wow, when a company takes the time to read reviews and then act on them, I have to commend them for it! My representative upon reading my review below took the time to reflect and then contact me about the review.  No excuses, just an honest reflection… and then acted.
I’m a happy customer… SelectQuote, specifically my original representative, initiated the contact, apologized, and offered to go back to the insurance carrier for re-evaluation since my cardiologist review.  Because of his initiative and follow-through, the carrier has approved my policy application and within terms that were originally quoted.  l’ll chalk my original experience up to an exception to the rule, as most companies that act on customer feedback are truly out to deliver excellent service. “

“SelectQuote is the most professional, and by far most efficient, Life insurance sales group I’ve dealt with.  My agent got a $1,000,000 policy issued to me in under three weeks.”

” I researched several Life Insurance companies, then called SelectQuote.  My agent, Stuart, took the time and effort to shop a number of companies.  He produced the right policy at a much lower price than and other company quoted me.”
