HOLLYWOOD, FLA. — More residents in South Florida can now experience a better way to buy insurance for their homes, vehicles and much more as husband-and-wife team, Roland and Marjorie Jerome Toussaint, opened Brightway, The Jerome Agency today. The agency is located at 3440 Hollywood Boulevard, Suite 415 in Hollywood (located within the Venture Corporate Center).
