Gary Sorenson, CEA, CLCS, PLCS, CWCA, President

After 21 years with American Family Insurance Company, I made the decision to become an independent agent so I could offer our clients many options and choices for their insurance needs. September 1st of 1998  Insurance Broker of MN, Inc was formed and we have grown from representing 5 major insurance companies to over 50. We are spread across the state with 37 locations and 41 agents.

We are blessed to be a family-run operation with my wife Brita handles all the accounting operations,  my sons, Aaron and Aric are both agents for over 15 years. Another son Adam works at a group home and part-time in our accounting department. I have a daughter Ashley who graduated from Bethel College and has recently joined the Insurance Brokers team as a commercial lines account manager. My daughter in law Jamie Sorenson has joined the agency.

My family and I live in the Isanti area where we enjoy working in our local church over the years in various positions along with serving in community activities. We love being outdoors and entertaining friends and family at our lake home…boating, fishing, bicycling, and other outdoor activities.


I’ve been honored to serve on the board of directors, and other hands-on functions at Fishing For Life, TLC Toys and Marie Sandvik Center all are nonprofit organizations that help needy families. We have been sponsoring and supporting the Fishing For Life program in MN for the past 8 years. I have served on the AAA Advisory Board, State Auto Ins Co National Advisory Board, Member of the Anoka Chamber, North Metro Chamber, Twin Cities Home Builders Assoc., North Metro Realtors Assoc.,


Independent Agents Assoc of America., Professional Insurance Agents Assoc.

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!

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.

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.

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.
