Brothers Michael and John Longballa formed Longballa Insurance Agency in 2009 to help the Twin Cities community with their home, auto, small business, life and long term care insurance needs. Learning from their father who spent over 40 years in the business Longballa Insurance is truly a family business focusing on getting to know their customers and their insurance needs.
For many agencies, insurance is about volume. Market, quote, and sell as many policies as possible. Volume, volume, volume. At Longballa Insurance we take a different approach as we stand for quality and relationship. Our level of service is unsurpassed. Agents only, no turnover, all communications take place directly with Michael or John so you are always working with your agent who understands the history of your account and your specific situation.
-We spend time getting to know you and the details of your insurance needs.
-Once the data gather is complete, we take your quote to market with our insurance company partners listed below. We end up with roughly a dozen quotes, depending on your situation, to have a strong feel for what represents a competitive price for your specific insurance need.
-Michael or John walk you through the best proposal based on price and carrier solution taking the time to explain coverage limits, options, and endorsements along with sharing our recommendations given your home’s, business’s, or auto’s location, style, age, and other features.
-The proposal is a crucial step that separates our agency from many others. We don’t propose the lowest cost option using inadequate limits or unrealistically high deductibles or by excluding what we consider to be necessary coverage options. We treat your home, auto, or business as if it’s our own and act like we are insuring it for ourselves.
