Jim and Charlene

 
Jim and Charlene Harper have been married for 34 years and have two daughters. They started this insurance agency in 2005 and have won numerous awards for how they support and retain customers while growing their agency. They are both licensed in all lines of Property & Casualty insurance as well as Life and Health insurance. You can learn more about Jim and Charlene's family and why they got into the insurance business by going to the "Our Beginnings" page on this web site.
 
After clicking on the link above you will also learn about a fire that Jim and Charlene had at their home in 1992 (possibly caused by a critter). They had to move out of their home for 14 months while their house was being rebuilt. But the way they were treated and taken care of by their insurance company - who they now represent - was the main reason why they decided to start their own insurance agency 13 years later, in 2005. They wanted to take care of individuals and families the way they were treated - with compassion and care. 
 
Jim and Charlene's daughters were 2 and 5 at the time of their fire. They seem to have grown up a little since that fateful day. One of them is now a Sr. Scientist (Shannon) and the other is a Marketing Leader (Meredith) at companies in the Twin Cities.
