About Our Agency
In 1980, Vern Starr opened a Farm Bureau Insurance agency named Starr Insurance Agency. The agency was built on 5 basic principals; hard work, treat clients like family, properly educate the community on insurance options, offer superior customer service, and focus on always giving back to the community of Monroe. Over 30 years later nothing has changed.
In 2010 Vern's son Ben Starr (agent since 2003) and daughter-in-law Kelsey Starr (agent since 2009) purchased the agency intent on keeping those same 5 basic principals alive. "When we set our agency goals for the year the first thing we discuss is our community giveback. Monroe does so much to support us, it only seems right to make the community a priority," says Ben Starr.
Since acquiring the agency, Ben and Kelsey have incorporated the agency and formed Starr Insurance Agency Inc. to provide a solid foundation for growth and position themselves for many years in Monroe. "Monroe is our home." says Kelsey. "It is a rare opportunity to drive around your home city each day and see how many businesses and families we personally help protect."
Starr Insurance Agency Inc. is most proud of its recent "Monroe's Best of the Best" Award for the 2013 top rated Insurance Agency in Monroe, voted by the public. "It was amazing to find out," says Ben Starr. "I know Monroe is still considered a small town in Michigan, but to Kelsey and I it was huge news! Seeing the Monroe community vote for us like that has renewed our focus and intensity!" added Ben.
When it comes to agency staff teams, Kelsey states she would put the Starr Insurance Agency Inc. team up against any other agency. "Hands down Heather, Megan, Donna, and the rest of the team are the best! They show so much compassion for each client, are committed to growing professionally through continuing education, and have over 50 combined years of experience in insurance service. That makes them the best in Monroe and possibly the state! Ben and I always agree that the heart of this agency is them. They are often the main reason many clients stay with our agency for so many years."
Starr Insurance Agency Inc. provides nearly every possible insurance need. Whether it is a simple auto policy or a complex tax reduction estate planning case, they can handle it. Ben states, "One of the rare advantages we have is the backing of our parent company, Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan. Farm Bureau provides us, free of hourly charge to the client, many top rated professionals in the lines of estate planning, business life insurance planning, complex commercial/business risks, farm continuation plans , crop insurance and even health/retirement plans. With so many insurance companies out there, our clients like to have a central place in Monroe to discuss every insurance question. It is what makes us unique. We don't help with just Farm Bureau questions, we help with all insurance needs."
If you look at what really drives the agency, Kelsey sums it up best, "Each day we have the privilege of helping our neighbors, friends, family, community leaders, and thousands of Monroe and Michigan residents on their worst day. That is what insurance is, helping a family through the tornado, a flood, retirement, a death, a fire, an injury, a sickness, theft, a car accident and so much more." With a mindset and focus like that, it looks like the Farm Bureau Insurance office, Starr Insurance Agency Inc., will be here for many generations to come.
