InSource's roots date back to 1922
With a heritage of client service stretching back to 1922, InSource has a long tradition of leadership in the insurance industry. Six of the firms principals and one of its associates have served as president of the Independent Insurance Agents of Dade County, three have chaired the Florida Association of Insurance Agents (FAIA), and many have been active on a national level.
