My professional philosophy relates to expanding my expertise, educating and assisting my clients, contributing to society, or learning new skills. I’m passionate about serving others, providing for my family, and making the most of opportunities.
I am an insurance advisor specializing in commercial business. I’m a one-stop shop with a primary goal to provide you competitive pricing, comprehensive coverage, and a level of service that is unrivalled in the industry.
I was born and raised in Minnesota, graduated from Iowa State and Bond University in Australia with business degrees in marketing/management. I then worked for MetLife as a traveling sales representative in northern Minnesota, the Twin Cities, and North Dakota for a couple of years before becoming an independent insurance agent for the last 15 years.
My wife Cortney and I have a son named Dalton and a dog Chewy. I enjoy all outdoor activities, including golf, hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, and landscaping. I look to build strong long-term relationships with my clients. Friendships, family, and clients are very important to me and I try to treat everyone with the same meaningful approach.
I don't have one, just a name/number/email will do... otherwise a "perfect referral" might be when you talk to both people, when it's a warm lead as easy as being cc'd in on the email or given a phone number.
Qualifying Questions: What are three questions we can ask clients to help pave the way for a referral? List them here.
Have you looked at your insurance lately, if not I know someone with access to 100 carriers.
Did you know there are discounts for packing more lines of insurance together, even if it's with your personal home/auto.
Have you had any claims or servicing issues?
