Our Staff

We are so proud of our dedicated professional staff.  They are the backbone of why we have such a high client retention.  And for those few clients that venture out - we get the majority back rather quickly. Why? Well, sometimes you don't know what you have until you lose it and we truly provide a lot to our clients.

Our Services

We are a one-stop shop to market all your insurance needs with a multitude of "A rated" Insurance Companies. As a broker and agent, we have access to many standard & specialty markets. This flexibility allows us to customize your insurance.  Such as, writing it among different carriers or bundled with just one. It's about what is best for you at the time.  Why re-invent the wheel when you have access to all these markets under one roof.

Are claims a concern?  We can help you navigate and understand the claims process.  We can also help you communicate with the adjusters if you feel you are not being heard or understood correctly.

"My wife and I appreciate the excellent job Bannister is doing w/our insurance.  Noticeably better than our last agent.  I did not even know I should have been receiving more service until we switched - should have done it a long time ago."

"These people are really smart.  They understand how important price is but also made sure our family got the coverage we need.  They explained the options and gave us choices.  We choose to place our homeowners, cars, umbrella and other property with them as it all came up.  We are very happy customers"
