After 41 years embarking on the process of selling my agency was intimidating. As a leader, I feel a large sigh of relief knowing that my future is protected and that my staff and clients are transitioning to a company that genuinely cares for their wellbeing.

If you are getting close to making a change, give him consideration. Hear Ely speak, go to his agents only section, of his web site, say hi. I found him easy to do business with. He knows what he is looking for, is quick and fair in his responses. His management team has been great to deal with in our transition.

From the early stages of the acquisition to the very end, I have felt safe, valued, and protected with Ely and his team at Kaplansky. Ely is an experienced industry professional with an unwavering passion for his work and staff. He always ensured that my interests and wishes were considered.

When I was informed our agency was sold I was nervously excited anticipating the upcoming changes. Day one I immediately felt part of the Kaplansky family while processing through the acquisition. Kaplansky staff members prioritized my onboarding experience providing constant guidance facilitating a smooth and easy transition. I now have the opportunity to deliver cost effective products to our clients
