Ratcliff & Blake Insurance Professionals

OSKALOOSA, IA SEPTEMBER 23, 2022 – Ratcliff & Blake Insurance Professionals is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.

Each year since 1993, the Big “I” and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.

“We’re honored and humbled to be selected amongst such good company. When Margaret and I started the agency in 2019, being named a Best Practices Agency was one of our long-term goals. We’re thrilled to have reached this milestone in just our fourth year,” says Billy Blake, President of Ratcliff & Blake Insurance Professionals.

More than 2,600 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 282 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.

The agency was nominated by either a Big “I” affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.

The Best Practices Study was initiated by the Big “I” in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading

independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

Ratcliff & Blake Insurance Professionals was founded in 2019 and can offer insurance products from several different companies including Auto-Owners, Cincinnati, EMC, Grinnell Mutual, IMT, Nationwide, Progressive, West Bend, and more.
