Strimple-Kallstrom-Bartell Insurance provides home, automobile, business, life and health insurance making us among the few one stop shops in Northeast Ohio. We take pride in our knowledgeable sales staff’s ability to help our clients find the best coverage at the right price that suits their needs and expectations. In the event of a claim, our clients know that we are there to provide help and counsel to ensure a fast, speedy claim settlement. Unlike other brokers, we will automatically re-examine our client’s policy at time of renewal to ensure they have the best policy at the best price available. Like other independent brokers, we issue binders and new policies, endorsements, and process renewals.
We have stressed to our insurers the importance of good communication between the broker and client to ensure proper coverage is in place. We have noticed as our clients become better informed about insurance that there has been a tremendous increase in clients’ curiosity and desire to learn about their policy coverage. Mostly, they want to know how to get the most value for their insurance dollar.
Our company’s strength lies in the quality and depth of our products and staff. Our staff has specialists in commercial insurance that can properly service and underwrite local business. We also have some quality commercial markets unavailable to our competition. Since we are brokers, (not agents such as co-operators), we have access to a range of standard and specialty markets.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or businessowner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
