In God. In America. And our Stewardship of both.
At the Dean Ballenger Agency, we keep it pretty simple. We love God, we love our country and we love our neighbors as we do ourselves. Our deep-seated passion for protecting you stems from Dean’s service as a Marine. This means we’re an agency with a true heart for its clients. We live the stewardship philosophy. Stewardship, from our viewpoint, is defined as “Handling God’s blessings God’s way for God’s glory.” Therefore, we want to be good stewards of your time, your trust, and your insurance dollars. Because we’re a local agency, we get to know our clients personally. As a result, our clients are not just policy numbers, our clients are our friends, neighbors and the people we worship with. We strive to create a sense of community and dependability so that when disaster strikes, you feel as though you’re leaning on family. Most of all, we want to assure that you never feel you are alone when dealing with a property loss or damage situation.
Your house is likely the largest purchase you’ll ever make. In addition, your furniture, electronics and other precious belongings need to be protected. We recognize that for a homeowner, any claim feels like a big claim – especially if it’s your first – regardless of the size. Therefore, we’ll walk you through the steps of repairing damage, replacing personal items or recovering from a liability situation. At the end of the day, the place you call home is a big part of your life, and we treat it accordingly.
Have you ever come upon an accident on the road and found yourself staring at twisted metal and police lights on the highway? First of all, if you’re like Dean and his wife Laurie, you immediately pray for the people involved and their families. Next, your mind may wander to auto insurance, hoping they have adequate coverage to financially survive this catastrophic incident. And you hope they had an agent who cared enough to explain how and when they’re covered. Besides providing your insurance, our goal is to make sure that the one thing that doesn’t go through your mind is “I wonder how I would be covered if that were me.” We want you to feel informed, secure and protected.
If the unthinkable happens and you, your spouse or your child were to die, you or your survivors could be left with a heavy emotional and financial burden. Financially, this could be in the form of lost income, outstanding debt or your child’s student loans. Life insurance protects your family against a loved one’s untimely death. In your time of mourning, we hope finances are the furthest thing from your mind. This peace of mind is available to you and your family through affordable life insurance policies. Therefore, a simple life insurance review with Dean will help fill in the blanks to alleviate the financial devastation that can come with the loss of someone dear.
Protecting your world
In addition to the major types of insurance, the Dean Ballenger Agency also offers coverage options for those extra items for your leisure time. Whether you have boats, motorcycles, campers, snowmobiles, ATVs or even specialty collector cars, your Harley, ’67 Camaro and Morse Lake joy ride are all safe with us.
No matter what you’re insuring, we want you to feel comfortable with your coverage, rates and company. As an independent agency, one of our favorite parts of our job is working behind the scenes for you. We look at different companies in order to find not only the best insurance value, but the best fit for you personally. Also, we want you to know that getting an insurance quote does not have to be a cumbersome, time consuming task.
Some companies claim that they can save you money in 15 minutes or less. At first glance, that might sound appealing to you, but you’re worth more than 15 minutes to us. Family always is. Therefore, we take the time to explain, educate and evaluate your coverage options, so that you know what you have and why you have it. We recognize that insurance can feel like a maze, so we are here to guide you through it. Other companies claim they’re like a good neighbor – and that may be true. However, as a small, local business in Westfield, IN, the Dean Ballenger Agency truly is your neighbor.
