Kerns Insurance Agency is an independent insurance agency. As an independent insurance agent, I am able to provide quotes from many different carriers so you get exactly what you need for the best price. I sell almost every type of insurance. If I don’t sell it, I will get you connected to a trusted company who does. Examples of the types of insurance I sell are:
I believe in being honest and upfront with people. I don’t believe in selling insurance you don’t need, and I don’t believe in selling you insurance that doesn’t cover what you need it to cover. I will always be upfront and honest, even if the news is not necessarily what you want to hear. Being a small town insurance agent/owner is perfect for me. My clients are not just a number or a faceless application; they are people I see and interact with when I go to the grocery store or my kid’s sporting events or see at a local restaurant. So, if you want an agent who is honest, tells it like it is and will treat you like family, stop by and see me.
