I would appreciate advice since it might be easier to get a release before selling anything.
You won't get a release, period.
I learned the hard way that the owner of the agency, refused to release me from my secure horizons contract and forced me to go 6 months prior to moving to another FMO
. (I never knew about this indentured servant clause before they taught me).
I told them that I only wanted to move my PFFS
business and would still write all the HMO
plans through him but if he didn't release me, I would move them as well. His response was, "We will do just fine without your business."
After moving my contract, they refused to pay me renewal commissions. I called the carriers but they couldn't release information to me on existing business because (surprise), AGA was the actual agent, not me. Makes it hard to sue when you can't prove the loss.
Does that answer your question?
