After 27 years in the insurance business, I took a 2-year hiatus.
When my rates increased dramatically, I started to research other companies. Like you, I’m an insurance consumer, and I was surprised by the differences in policies (better coverage) and how many companies had lower prices. When a brokerage sought me out 5 years ago, and I discovered they represented all the great companies I’d found, I decided to get back into the business.
When my rates increased dramatically, I started to research other companies. Like you, I’m an insurance consumer, and I was surprised by the differences in policies (better coverage) and how many companies had lower prices. When a brokerage sought me out 6 years ago, and I discovered they represented all the great companies I’d found, I decided to get back into the business.
As an independent agent with the SIA of the Great Lakes, I have direct contact with 15 of the largest, most respected, and by far the most financially solid companies in the insurance industry. Within the larger brokerage, I have access to 50 more.
My goal as an agent is to provide my clients with the right policies at the right prices.
My wife and I have been married for almost 40 years. We live between Rochester and Pine Island on 35 acres of fields and woods with our dogs Sophie & Tucker. Joy is my marketing assistant and sometimes answers the phones at the office. She’s also an accomplished author with several books in publication. She will be a frequent guest blogger here.
When I’m out of the office, I like to spend time on our land. We take the dogs for John Deere Gator rides and I am cleaning up a lot of downed trees. We planted our tillable acres in wildflowers and created a wildlife habitat.
This is the 2nd “from scratch” agency I’ve started. It’s a lot of work getting the word out, but I have to tell you – it’s worth it. It’s great to say that 90% of the time I am saving my clients money while increasing essential coverages. This is my kind of business – where we all win.

My wife, Joy, is our marketing assistant. She manages this website, our mailings, and my professional page.
Joy is also a published author and amateur photographer. She enjoys car rides with Jon, time with family, coffee with friends, long walks, John Deere Gator rides with Sophie & Tucker, bird watching, reading, wildflowers, and she is planning on taking some long hikes at MN State parks in 2017.
One of Joy’s favorite activities is to combine birdwatching and photography. Here is a collage of some of her recent photos:
