Crofton State Farm Insurance Agent Kirk Lynn talks about his love for the insurance business.
1. What sparked your interest in the insurance business?
I was Finance major in college and looked at banking, financial markets and insurance. I chose Insurance after doing extensive research on State Farm and found that State Farm is an amazing organization that has an excellent culture and fosters an environment where the State Farm Agent is the added value for our customers. My father had a great experience with State Farm as well as an Agent in Central Pennsylvania. He owned and operated his Agency for 38 years before retiring in 2000.
2. How long have you been in the insurance business?
I have worked with State Farm for over 23 years as an Auto Claim Representative, an Agent in the Philadelphia area, an Agency Leadership and an Agency Consultant and Agency Executive. I have now returned to my real passion – an Agent here in Crofton.
In Crofton, I am able to focus on my mission statement every day: “To improve the financial lives of the people we serve through our products and services, based on their needs. We treat all clients in a caring, friendly, and professional manner - treating others as we would like to be treated. Our goal is to have clients see our office as their first and best choice for all their insurance and financial services needs.”
3. What types of insurance do you specialize in?
I specialize in auto, homeowner’s, life, health, long -term care, business owner’s, and retirement and education savings planning.
4. Why do you think Crofton is the best place to own a business?
The people and community are awesome! Also, Crofton continues to grow in many ways despite the change in our economic landscape in the U.S.
5. What do you like most about the Crofton/Gambrills community?
Again, the people in this community are fantastic.
