About Emporium Insurance Agency

We are so excited to have you as part of the EMPORIUM INSURANCE AGENCY family. We take great pride in our agency, community and clients. As an Independent Agent we offer choice, provide a high level of service and are local to your community. But what does that really mean? Can't other agents say the same thing about their business? Here is how we are different:

  • Choice: As an independent agent, we offer a choice of multiple insurance carriers, coverages, price, and more. Our main focus is to find the insurance coverage that best suit your unique needs and gives you the best options. In addition, we know you have a choice when selecting a local independent agent. We want to continue to show how we earn your trust through our regular communication, personal relationships, and community involvement. We want you to be a part of our agency and join us in having some fun!
  • Provide High Level of Service: To us, service means you will know who our staff members are – and not just the usual run of the mill insurance stuff. You will know about them as people and we want to know the same about you. So when you call you will know who you are talking to! We will also be available in the event of a claim. Being independent we work for you, not the insurance companies. We will be there to make sure your interests are protected and not forgotten.
  • Local: When most people say they are local, they mean they have an office in your community. While that is true of us, when we say we are local we mean we are a part of your community. We are involved with local and national charities and organizations, like Agape Cafe and the Iowa Restaurant Association, that benefit where we live. We believe that if we put our time and money where it matters the most we all benefit.

So what's next? Please read through the rest of the Welcome Packet for more information on the agency. Once you have read through the information, place it in the enclosed folder and keep it with your files for safe keeping and future reference. If you have any questions, please go to the Our Staff page and give any one of us a call. We would be more than happy to assist you.

Again, thank you for being a part of the EMPORIUM INSURANCE AGENCY family where our community is family and our family is our community.

EMPORIUM INSURANCE AGENCY has been around since 2021. Since opening our doors we've always worked hard to continuously understand your needs and provide you with peace of mind.
The agency started with 3 things in mind:

  1. Care for each individual client
  2. Support our Community
  3. Have fun along the way

Sounds simple, but with the way the world has changed, we don't do business with every client face to face. So we do some things differently, like communicate through newsletters and Facebook, instead of seeing everyone in town at mealtime at the local diner.

Hold us to the high standard of service we strive for we hope you'll provide your comments on how we're doing. We know that you rely on us to protect your most valuable treasures, including family, home, cars, and finances. So do like we always said, "Leave the worrying to us and get on with your dreams."
