Established in 2003, HomeTownQuotes prides its self on high quality leads and agent centric customer service. Its dedication to customer service comes from founder Bob Klee, who experienced the challenges of buying leads as an independent and captive agent and agency owner prior to starting the company.
By providing high quality customer service, free filters, and leads for multiple lines – including auto, renters, home, and life – HomeTownQuotes is able to service the vast majority of insurance professionals in the United States. Leads are delivered with a variety of delivery options including text, email, and an excellent lead management system.
There are three primary catalysts for the growth and popularity of HomeTownQuotes:
- Customer Referrals. 1 in 3 new agents are referred by a current customer.
- All Inclusive Pricing. While some companies charge for filters and territories, this is not the way HomeTownQuotes does business. No matter how many filters you implement, you will never be charged a fee. The only thing the company does charge for is the live-transfer option.
- Customer Service. Each agent is assigned a dedicated Account Rep, called Regional Directors (RD’s). These RD’s are more than a typical customer service agent. They all have years of experience in the insurance and leads industry. Most, were or are currently licensed agents.
HomeTownQuotes offers a competitive pricing structure compared to other top providers in the market. Some base rates will be higher than competitors but this can be slightly misleading considering HTQ doesn’t require agent to pay extra for the use of filters.
At the present time, HomeTownQuotes is offering a bonus 50% Match on up to $500 of deposited funds up to new customers. For those interested in other lines such as Life HTQ suggested agents call 720-709-2079 for non-auto promotions.

The intro paragraph mentions life insurance, but the “Types of Leads” list includes only Auto, Renters, and Home.
Does the company offer life insurance leads as well?
Good eye, Lee! Hometown does still offer life leads, but they have been dialed into generating quality P&C leads in volume. I didn’t include life in the bulleted summary as part of this distinction since the company is best suited for P&C sales. Knowing how hard it can be to source reliable life leads online, they are certainly a viable option to test. The majority of life sources I’ve worked with are much more erratic in regards to volume and quality compared to P&C and health leads. I attribute this to the difficulty of generating quality life leads online. The offline commitment steps of the application seems to be increasingly daunting to a “make it easier” screen addicted society.
I’m hopeful that this will improve as more streamlined application processes come online. Life leads are easily the most in demand product from lead buyers based on the emails and comments I get. Big opportunity for sure.
Please send me your rates for your life leads for age 55-85.
Hi, Tezenia. You’ll need to get in touch for detailed pricing. The Hometown Quotes rep phone number is posted above. Thanks!
Do you offer Healthcare leads? If so are they live leads, or aged?
Hey, Mike. Hometown doesn’t offer health at this time. All leads are live.
Please send me your information on senior final expense leads. Robert
Hi, Robert. I don’t represent Hometown Quotes. You can reach them for details regarding your specific needs at 720-709-2079.
Do you provide insurance leads in Canada?
I don’t believe they currently offer leads in Canada Simi. I have been getting a lot more questions about international insurance leads and I know several top lead companies are considering expansion. You can give HTQ a call to confirm at 720-709-2079.
What are the costs associated with setting up this service and contunued costs per lead?
Hey Shawn. There are no costs for setting up an account. Hometown has very competitive pricing, but it will vary based on your desired lines and filters. Give them a call at 720-709-2079 to get prices for the lead types you are looking for.
I like to see some of your sample leads and also see your rates

What is the rating for Hometown quotes…I am thinking about hiring this company.
They are good. A few bumps in the road over the past couple of years but they’ve made a lot of changes and have bounced back very strong.
