Know more about us!!

Dan Burghardt designed his agency about attentive focus on the customers’ needs, making sure that you are always the #1 priority. We constantly get calls from customers that other agencies:

  1. Will not return their call;
  2. Left them holding on the phone too long;
  3. Forced them to listen to and navigate an automated answering system to get help;
  4. Failed to find the right coverage;
  5. Did not sell the products they needed (homeowners, builder’s risk, vacant property, renovation insurance, commercial coverage, etc.);
  6. Left them fatigued from shopping multiple agencies to find the lowest prices;
  7. Could not insure them because of driving record, claims history, home value, age or location, living arrangements, financing arrangements – the list is endless;
  8. Have employees with a poor or negative attitude.

Whether you are an ideal customer with a perfect claim history that the preferred companies want, or a person with unique or not-so-perfect circumsances, we can find the best coverage for your money. We try our best to help you get what you need or want from your insurance purchase, regardless of who you are!

  • Professional Courtesy
