I don’t know why I didn’t call you guys sooner than I did. Everything from the first consultation, to going through the process, gathering the information you needed, to the final product was an extremely surprising and most pleasant experience. For my business I now have three times the coverage, an extra $100K in life insurance and my premiums total over $1000 less than they used to. The ability that Insurance Brokers of Minnesota has to “shop my business” to all their different companies that they represent got me the absolute best deal I could get. It started with Gary Sorenson, but he handed it off to Ashely and Josh and it could not have gone more smoothly. They were true pros through the entire process, explained everything to me clearly, answered my questions, and at the end I received a binder with all of my coverages clearly outlined and total premiums due. Simple, straight forward and professional. I have to say that in the past I am not sure I always trusted my agent to feel I was getting the best deal. With this team I can tell you I have complete trust and KNOW that I am being represented with the best coverage at a great rate. You can trust these guys at Insurance Brokers of Minnesota. Thanks Gary and team and I look forward to working with you on our new location opening soon!
Over the years, Insurance Brokers of MN has provided services to North Star Services Management and I have been nothing but impressed! It is all too rare these days to know someone personally and professionally who demonstrates integrity and honesty. I am honored to be counted as Gary’s friend rather than just another client.
Owners Tony & Josh Zens of Prince Bait said after a review with Gary he was able to improve their coverage and save them $5,200 per year on their business insurance.
I have been doing business with Gary Sorenson and Insurance Brokers for over 20 years. Gary has taken good care of me as a customer and has really paid attention to detail on every aspect of my account. Insurance Brokers is always making suggestions to strengthen my policies but also help me watch my overhead expenses. In addition to my business insurance I was able to bring my medical insurance needs to Gary and have been very satisfied with my decision to do so. Gary and the rest of his team, especially Sarah, are all a pleasure to work with.
In the expansive western MN I found myself with major vehicle damage. Aric did an amazing job making sure the process flowed. The crew at IB absolutely had my best interests in mind, and I was in a rental the next day before noon. My truck was fixed and good as new within 3 days. Thanks again to the IB team for keeping my vacation going
I am writing to share with you my experience with Erik Ebeling. I made an appointment beginning of October 2015. I needed someone to help me with finding insurance for myself because I was going to retire and I had no idea where to start. There are so many insurance companies and different policies that to me it is overwhelming.
Erik was recommended out of a list I had of brokers. My appointment with him went well. He is very knowledgeable and listened to what I was needing and wanting in a plan. He gave me his time and attention and didn’t hurry me.
Erik is friendly and easy to talk to. “He has my vote and business!”
There are three things I look for in a professional service provider, knowledge, commitment and relevance. Wyn delivers all three without a doubt. If it’s important, call Wyn first.
Very personable and worked hard to get me a savings with quality insurance.
In the years I have worked with you I have always been impressed by your integrity and concern for your clients. It is rare to find someone whose 1st thought is to the welfare of his clients.
We have been with Wyn for around 5 years now and there is nobody else that compares! His customer service is by far the best in the business. He can take any question that you have and give the simple answer that you understand. We will definitely be sticking with Wyn for years to come!
In my twenty plus years of being in business, I have had about five different insurance agents. None of which I felt inclined to write a letter of recommendation for. This is not the case with Chad Bertram, I had to ask him for additional business cards, because I had passed out all the original ones he gave me, when we first met. These cards were passed out to both friends and business contacts who were looking to better their insurance policies. Chad Bertram was able to give me good coverage advice, significantly improved my insurance costs and improved my AM Best rating for the insurance companies I was using. The AM Best rating actually plays a much larger role in my insurance than I realized, there are a lot of agents and insurance companies out there, but if you are insured by one with a lower AM Best rating it will be reflected in the level of service you receive. Take it from someone who knows and is still dealing with my previous insurance company, and has not heard from his previous agent of 10 years regarding the disputed funds. Chad Bertram will work hard to get your business and will keep working had for you afterwards.
I have had my insurance through Chad for over two years. No matter what issues I have, he has been very willing to assist me and get me the information that I need. He is well versed in all types of insurance planning where other agents are generally unaware. Overall Chad has been great to deal with
My husband and I decided to see if The Michael Zumbusch Agency (Insurance Brokers of MN) could save us money on our insurance coverage. Going with them saved us $900 a year and we increased our coverage considerably on our homeowners. We are glad we left our former company to go with Wilson Mutual. We enjoyed dealing with Dan as he worked hard looking out for our best interest.
Thank you to Mike Zumbusch for all your time and effort in putting together a great package for our insurance needs. We totally appreciate the great customer service and the commitment to answer all our questions.
Our appreciations to Mike, Teri and Kim for your time, experience and energy put into finding this great package for us. We have never been excited about insurance….until now. We really feel as though your motives and interests are truly for the best interest of your clients. I look forward to working with you and recommending you to others
Thank you so much Kim!!! You have been so wonderful to work with! I will tell everyone I know who is looking for insurance that this is the agency to deal with and you’re the person to ask for! Thank you so much again!
Ben reviewed and updated my business and workers comp insurance to make sure there were no gaps in coverage. He is knowledgeable and works hard to ensure a quality insurance product. He is willing and able to answer any questions I have and even offers to help new businesses get set up correctly andon the road to success.
We have been dealing with Harold for over twenty years. We have nothing but positive things to say about Harold and staff. Its so nice to have trust and friendship with your insurance representative.
We have known and dealt with Harold for close to 30 years. He is a very responsible agent who is easy to work with and always strives to do his best for his clients. He is not only our insurance agent, but also became a personal friend.
Insurance Brokers of MN, Inc. has been a great asset to our Company. Our agent Harold Matson is always looking for ways to keep us with competitive quotes. Whenever our needs change Harold quickly responds to our needs. Also we recently made an insurance claim and our agent quickly followed up to make sure our losses were recovered.
We switched from our agent to Insurance Brokers of MN Agent Chad Nelson IN PL. We loved the ease of doing business and the 24 hour service we receive. Coupled with friendly, knowledgeable staff, Chad & Insurance Brokers of MN made our switch an easy choice!
Greg and Becky were extremely helpful in finding me an insurance company that would work with my home office business. Fast, efficient and courteous. Thank you!
Greg & Becky Ott of Insurance Brokers of Minnesota – Jordan, MN office have been our Commercial and Personal Insurance Agents for the past decade. These two are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to insurance and have a great staff working with them. Greg & Becky are sure to remind me each year to review all of our policies with them and they ALWAYS find ways to save me more money each year by making adjustments upon their review. You won’t be disappointed if you let Insurance Brokers of MN, Inc. handle all of your insurance needs.
Greg at Insurance Brokers of MN in Jordan, MN was the best agent to work with. He really got things done for my company. He is very kind and understanding. He answered questions I had regarding insurance for my business. If you’re looking for a great agent, look no further! Greg and Becky are awesome to work with.I cannot say enough good things about them and their company.
I have to tell you, Greg Ott is amazing! I called him with a Medica question and he answered it and then some……..saved me a ton of money and showed me how to get my vaccine paid for by Medicare Part D, whatever that is!!!! He is the best in his field…a good partner to have.
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how happy Louise and I were with the first-rate customer service that was provided to us when our car was damaged last month in the deer collision. From start to finish, beginning with Natalie at your office, right on through to Deborah Davis and Lisa Laramee at the Auto Club Insurance Association, the claims process was quick, painless , and above all, courteous. Customer service at its best – thanks!
Jay Peterson and the insurance carrier Acuity have provided us with outstanding service. We were with another carrier for 40 years and decided to switch when Jay gave us quotes which were 40% less. Within 3 months of activation we unfortunately had 3 claims (rare for us) that have been handled with extreme quickness and efficiency. Jay and Acuity claim representatives have been absolutely ideal to work with by showing genuine concern for everyone involved, great understanding and communication of the process and pro-active leadership in closing the claims. We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend them both.
Jay Petersen has been our Insurance agent since we started our erosion control business in 1999. He is now helping us cover our next generation.
My husband and I were shocked when we received a 40% increase on our homeowner’s policy after experiencing hail damage to our roof and siding. Having never had a claim before, we just couldn’t believe the increase.
I contacted Gary Sorenson and explained how my homeowner’s had increased and asked if he would be willing to provide me with a quote on both my auto’s and home. He agreed and provided me with quotes from two insurance companies. I was shocked at the improved coverage and the annual savings of over $1,800.
I really appreciate the attention to detail and the advice that my auto coverage was very low. I wasn’t receiving this kind of service in the past.
It was nice to work with an agent that actually cares and looked out for my interest.
I would highly recommend Gary Sorenson and the Insurance Brokers staff.
Thank you Gary & Tawni!
Erdman Automation has worked with Insurance Brokers for about 12 years now. They have provided excellent customer service and have been available for all of our needs. I would recommend them to any person or company who is looking for a new insurance agency.
We recently purchased a resort on Lake of the woods near Baudette, MN. Gary Sorenson and his staff at Insurance Brokers of Mn, Inc. have been very helpful and informative. Dealing with insurance can be an overwhelming situation with any small business. We are comfortable knowing we have experience on our side, and people we can call on with any questions we may have. We are relieved to have Gary and his staff, using their knowledge and background to help us make our business successful with the correct insurance coverage.
Gary Sorenson of Insurance Brokers of Minnesota has been thorough and fair in making sure that we are covered properly and not spending extra premium dollars on coverage that we don’t need.
After we did a complete review of our coverages with Gary Sorenson from IBMN We changed over and vastly improved our coverages PLUS saved over $5,000 thousand on our annual premiums. We also changed all our personal insurance and company group health!!
I recently lost my job and will be without insurance soon, your business was recommended to me , for some direction and assistance.
I have had 2 meetings with Erik Ebeling and he was of great assistance. He took the time to ask questions, offer assistance and start the process for me, in a very professional and compassionate manner.
Erik took a very troubling and stressful subject for me and my family, ans at least got us pointed in the right direction for help. A big thank you to Erik for his assistance with us.
I would easily recommend your company’s services to anyone.
We own and operate Margarito’s Mexican Restaurant in Byron, MN. We have been in business several years. During these several years…we have had to deal with a few different insurance companies and a few different agents. We have never had a claim….although some act like we did. Rates went up and up. Agents acted like we were only a policy number. (And out of sight-out of mind.) We knew Wyn Alexander and he is a customer of our ours. We knew that he was an insurance agent and decided to ask him about insurance since we were not happy about the company that we had been with. Well we change companies. ….and dealt with Wyn. Then when Wyn went on his own …we ended up following him again because we were suddenly …”just another policy number” and didn’t like all the unsolved issues we had with the agent that we were passed on to. Now if we call “Wyn” for anything..we will get our issue taken care of promptly. Wyn has our back. Our headaches have been a thing of the past. Well you know.. (like us) as a business owner in whatever business that you are in -you have other things to do and worry about then trying to track down your agent.
Wyn found the best coverage for my business at a great rate. Wyn and his team have been great to work with.
Wyn takes care of our home and auto insurance needs. The service is great and he always understands our needs. We definitely recommend him.
I started using Chad for our auto and home insurance after my wife and I purchased our first car together in September of 2008. Having worked for Chad earlier in my life, I knew that he was a very hardworking, honest person that would get us the best deal that he could offer. It is really nice to have someone who knows what they are doing, who is truthful to the client, and who is easy to get in contact with to answer questions. Chad shopped around and gave us a few different options, allowing us to find the best rate we could receive, which in turn allowed us to save money. Chad is always willing to work hard and put in the time to make sure that his clients are satisfied and that they dont have to worry about their insurance policy. He is also a great friend and someone who not only with service his client, but also get to know them. We are very happy with our service and look forward to working with Chad in the future!
Thank you for the solution that you found for me and always looking out for my best interest.
We have been with Steven Graham’s agency for over 10 years. We have two businesses and all of our personal policy’s with Steve’s agency. We had a hail damage claim a few years ago and Steve and his staff were right on it. They made the whole process easy and run smoothly. They are always available to answer all of our questions whenever we call them, which we very much appreciate. I highly recommend the Steven Graham Agency with Insurance Brokers of Minnesota for all your insurance needs
Thank you Mike for taking care of all of our insurance needs. You took the time to find out exactly what our insurance needs were and went above and beyond what we expected! We have never experienced such great service from another insurance company. Special thanks to Kim and Annie as well for ongoing SUBURB customer service. You guys are great!
Mike has been our insurance agent for over fifteen years. In that time he has saved us thousands of dollars on our policies. He has always been very easy to contact and very quick to meet any of our insurance needs. He has been very proactive with our insurance coverages as our lives and insurance needs have changed. Mike and his staff are true insurance professionals; offering unmatched knowledge and experience, with the individual service that you would expect from a good friend. I trust Mike’s advice and service to protect my family from life’s unforeseen events.
I thank Kim for getting me such good deals on the house and auto insurance, I truly appreciate all the help you she has been. I will definitely recommend her and IB to friends.
Working with Ben is such a pleasure. He is thorough, thoughtful and asks the tright questions in order to make sure that he is on track with your needs. I highly recommend Ben Boynton.
I just want to say thanks for always being there for me every time I call, I can honestly say this is the most happy I have been with an insurance company ever!
Harold has been our insurance agent for over ten years and has always given us great service in a friendly and personal manner, which is important in the fast-paced, transient society in which we live.
Harold has been our agent for twenty plus years and with different insurance companies. He has always looked out for us to receive the best price. He is there when you need him to help with a claim or just answer a question.
We have been dealing with Harold for over twenty years. We have nothing but positive things to say about Harold and staff. Its so nice to have trust and friendship with your insurance representative.
I’ve been insured with Insurance Brokers Of MN for 5 years. The ease of doing business with Chad Nelson and his professional staff make it an easy choice for me and my family. I happily recommend all my friends and family to Chad Nelson and Insurance Brokers of MN.
Greg was referred to me as an expert in group health plans – and he is. Greg is knowledgeable about all the various health companies and their many group plans. He saved me time by sorting through the plans and making the calls to find out critical pieces of information that helped me make an informed decision for myself and my small business. His expertise has been invaluable.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Greg Ott when searching for health insurance. The first agent I spoke with recommended that I avoid applying with the major insurance companies because I would likely be denied due to pre-existing conditions. She suggested a high premium plan for uninsurable individuals and quickly dismissed me. When I contacted Greg Ott, he immediately began making phone calls on my behalf and encouraged me to apply for coverage with the major insurance companies to obtain the most affordable care possible. Greg was patient, diligent, and addressed my concerns throughout the entire process. Thanks to Greg’s advice and willingness to go the extra mile, I was approved for a lower premium policy with a major carrier. I highly recommend Greg Ott to anyone seeking assistance with insurance.
My wife and I find Greg and his staff professional and willing to take the extra step to have a satisfied client.
Jay and his team have assisted me with my home and auto insurance for many years. I continue to be a satisfied customer because of the proactive reviews and attention to detail as my insurance needs change. They do all the leg work! I recently received a renewal for my auto insurance that seemed high. Natalie, from Jay’s team, spent a number of hours working with Travelers on my behalf to clean up issues and presented me with a renewal rate much less than expected. I cannot express how much I appreciate the attention to detail. Totally would not want to be doing this on my own! Thanks for all the wonderful years of service.
Jay and Tou have been great to work with for all my insurance needs. Not knowing much about home business insurance and wanting to be fully protected, they took the time to explain every detail, answer every question, and provide me with great coverage at competitive prices. I highly recommend them for any personal or business insurance needs. Thank you!
We needed a broker we could trust and someone we knew had the banks best interests in mind. Not only does Jay provide insurance on our buildings but he was able to assist with our Workmans Compensation insurance as well. Everything we needed with one broker. Jay is honest, trustworthy and versatile
I manage insurance for a construction lending company in Anoka and have been doing business in some capacity with Insurance Brokers of MN for at least 10 years. Of all the agencies I have had experience with; this is the one I’ve always recommended to our customers. A few years ago I was given the responsibility of also overseeing all of our business insurance. It was a learning experience for me as we have many insurance needs including, business, liability, workers compensation, auto, rental, office building coverage, Builders Risk, bonds, Association coverage etc. Aric and Gary Sorenson came in and reviewed all of our policies and some proved to be written in such a way they were of no use to us. Aric and Gary wrote us new policies and helped convert others into more appropriate coverage. My representative, Dawn takes care of all my requests and questions many times on a daily basis. Dawn is extremely prompt, knowledgeable and tireless in her patience and willingness to help. Aric constantly monitors our policies and has gone above and beyond to save us money and fight for the best premiums and coverage. I feel very confident I’m doing the best I can for our insurance needs and I recommend this company without any reservation.
I’m self employed and was facing over a $7000.00 work comp. audit fine and my agent Dawn Hanson went to bat for me. She sent numerous letters/ emails upon countless phone calls on my behalf. It went all the way to the commerce department. And finally we got a favorable outcome and were pardoned. There is no other person I know that would have fought this hard. Dawn you are truly amazing.
My agent is : Gary Sorenson, Owner of Insurance Brokers of MN. You may see their billboards on your way up north. The company I am insured with on auto and home is General Casualty. This summer they replaced my roof, gutters and painted my deck. They have replaced my roof a total of 3 times in 20 some years. I also have had auto claims with them. I could not be happier with them and Gary’s staff at IB of MN. It is easy to refer agents or clients to you, Gary, and your associates. You all are very good at your business!
I changed over to Gary Sorenson at Insurance Brokers of MN, Inc. and significantly improved my coverage’s and SAVED over $2,000 on my business insurance coverage’s!!
My husband and I were upset when we had a rather large increase in our homeowner’s insurance premium. We knew that this was possibility as our agent, Aric Sorenson, had given us a head’s up. Still, it was a shock to see. Having never had a claim before, we just couldn’t get our arms around the increase and decided to shop for insurance elsewhere. In doing our research, two things became quite evident: Acuity, our insurer, is one of the most reputable insurance companies around and the coverage that we have with them is far superior to many other companies. And, most importantly, we had an existing agent, Aric, who went to all lengths to guide us through the process of possibly switching companies. He reviewed proposals that we received and shopped around for other companies for us. In the end, we decided to stay with Acuity and with Aric due to the coverage and the professional, personal service that we get from Aric and Insurance Brokers.
I feel that Wyn Alexander is Outstanding to work with. Wyn is thorough, courteous and very professional. When we sat down in my office (YES, he will come to You) I was a bit hesitant to completely open up my world to a complete stranger. Its when I felt that he was really here for me, I began to trust. Wyn will ask the difficult questions. Its only because he wanted to offer the best possible services that he could. I couldn’t ask for a better, more reliable Ins agent than Wyn Alexander. He is passionate about what he does and once you meet him, you will know… I highly recommend giving him a call, After all. the more you Know, the more you grow.
I recently met Wyn Alexander through a friend of mine, not really knowing if I needed to update my policies I listened to what Wyn had to say. He showed great sincerity with his interest in what worked best for my needs, he even noticed I was paying for something that was not necessary. His customer service is a 10, I am also a business owner who knows what it means to make things convenient for my clients. I would highly recommend Wyn for any of your insurance needs.
“We were introduced to Wyn through a family member after months of being denied Life Insurance from multiple different companies. We were thrilled when he offered to meet us at our home, which was several hours from his location, to go over Life Insurance policies and discuss future investments. We felt exceptionally comfortable right away with Wyn as he presented a very professional, yet personable environment for us to discuss not only our current investment state but also how to reach our future investment goals. Wyn has a keen attention to detail and takes the time necessary to give you the accurate and honest facts, while also keeping it on a personal level for you and your family. He empathizes with our future dreams and has been instrumental in us investing today for our future. Wyn has been incredible at keeping us in the loop as to when our insurance prices are going to be increasing so we can be proactive. We have appreciated the no-pressure approach Wyn takes with making final decisions and he has always given adequate time for us to make a decision on anything we’ve discussed. He continues to make the several hour long drive to meet us at our home, which is amazing! He works with our hectic schedule and it just speaks to the way he always puts his investors first! We absolutely love working with Wyn and we completely trust referring him to all of our friends and family!”
Thanks again for the coverage review meeting and keeping the premium down. I didn’t get this kind of service from my previous agent.
I wanted to say that I contacted the agent at about 2:30 PM for a home policy. By 3:30PM I had a binder. The agent personally delivered it to my home that evening. Thanks again for your hard work on this!
I want you to know what a pleasure it was to work with you and your company to help improve my insurance coverage and reduce my insurance cost by over $1000/ year. Your attention to detail and focus on helping the customer was exemplary. You even gave me advice and information on a deficiency in my current cabin coverage that could have been very problematic if not corrected. I equally appreciate the fact that you were able to do that by going the extra mile to make it easier on me and my busy schedule (of running for state representative in Minnesota District 17B). It was wonderful to work with an insurance agent who truly looked out for the best interest of my family. I will make sure to let all my friends know what a great job you did in auditing the current insurance coverage for my 3 vehicles, my home and my cabin and also to find a company that would provide better coverage at more affordable rates.
I run the Buffalo Area Wedding Showcase and am required to carry insurance for the show. I contacted Mike Zumbusch. He was the ONLY insurance company around able to get me “event” like insurance. He & his staff have awesome customer service. I feel like I am going to see a friend when I stop in. THANKS
I’ve been in BNI with Ben for over 2 years and have always known him to be courteous, knowledgeable, honest, prompt, and professional. Whenever I have insurance questions, Ben is the first person I call.
Good morning Mark, This is Amanda Jaeger. I have been working with Debbie to get my boyfriend covered for car insurance. I wanted to let you know that working with her has been absolutely wonderful. She is so efficient and has always been able to answer any question I have. I also worked with Debbie during my first home purchase and had the greatest experience. Not only is she efficient but extremely helpful and friendly. I felt very comfortable working with your agency knowing that Debbie was taking care of me. She took all the nervousness out of insuring a home for the very first time and made a very happy and thankful customer! Bottom line, Debbie is a great person and employee. I have never been so pleased. Thank you!
We really appreciate the effort and service we have received. Your attention to our needs has made us feel were not just clients, but friends too
As a recent widow, I appreciate the personal and caring service I have received from you. Your reasonable prices have made it easier for me in my new financial situation. Thank you.
I made the switch to Insurance Brokers of MN Agent, Chad Nelson. I liked the ease of doing business with someone who is looking out for me and my family’s best interests!
Charnstrom’s Custom Cabinets is proud to be associated with Insurance Brokers of MN. Jordan office owners Greg & Becky Ott put my mind at ease when it comes to not only my business insurance but also my personal insurance as well. I’ve been with the Jordan office for almost ten years now and have great coverages due to the expert service from Greg, Becky and their entire team of professionals, they are very knowledgeable and offer great solutions! They have all that I need and more, from my commercial building & auto coverage, commercial liability, and workers compensation. Also, my personal home, auto, and health insurance. I highly recommend stopping in and talk with Greg or Becky to see how they can help you and your business!
I was referred to Greg by my business insurance agent. I was in need of health care insurance as I am self-employed. Greg was very informative and gave me several options to choose from. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions…and there were a lot! The process of applying and getting my health insurance was easy and quick. I would definitely recommend Greg and his services. He actually saved me $150.00 a month versus the coverage that I had, and I now have a better plan. Thanks Greg!
WORKING WITH GREG OTT AT INSURANCE BROKERS IN JORDAN MN HAS BEEN A PLEASURE,HE WILL EXPLAIN MY COVERAGE IN WAYS I UNDERSTAND AND DOESN’T TRY TO PUSH SOMETHING ON ME I DO NOT NEED.I FEEL HE IS VERY HONEST AND CARES ABOUT MY BUISNESS AFTER THE POLICY IS WRITTEN.DAVE MOLINE:
Craig, everything looks GREAT! Thank you for the “insurance education” I’ve received from you over the past few weeks! You’ve been very thorough and helpful. I really appreciate that. Ida, thanks for the help as well. I am very happy to be working with both of you. With a boat, house, wife, and kids yet to come I am sure I will have some more business down the road! I also have a team of sales people who like their toys, I will certainly send them your direction.
Jay has been my insurance agent for more than 10 years. He is thorough, knowledgeable and genuine. Jay patiently answers all my insurance questions and he consistently provides me, my family and my business with the very best coverage at the lowest rates.
Jay has been great at finding the right insurance policies to meet my needs. I recently had a water damage claim and with his help the claim process was very easy and quick. Jay recommends high quality companies that stand behind their products. It would be well worth your time to talk with Jay and he may be able to save you some money.
