Our History    


Rippinger Financial (the original parent company of Resource Brokerage) was founded by John Rippinger in 1984 as an executive and corporate benefit firm. Blair Farwell joined the company in 1999. In 2000 with an eye towards business succession, Rippinger Financial was split into four separate companies, Resource Brokerage being the largest.

After climbing the ranks in the organization for 12 years, Blair Farwell purchased Resource Brokerage from John Rippinger in January of 2012.

In December of 2021, Resource Brokerage partnered with Integrity Marketing Group to further grow and expand our products, tools, and technologies.

Testimonials

"I've been on both sides of the aisle - as a client and as a vendor. From my experiences I feel qualified to state that your product knowledge, training and sales expertise, and understanding of the client's needs were exceptional and invaluable to my selling success. Whenever I had questions (and there were many!) you responded very quickly and in many instances, gave me additional ideas that helped with the sale."

"I am looking forward to many, many additional sales with your help!"

"Great job prepping this case for us. I completed initial review on Thursday and have been able to approve this morning (4 business days) !"
