American Family Insurance agent Lane Berenschot earns company top 10 award

Agent Lane Berenschot of Glenwood City and Colfax has been named to the prestigious Top 10 list by American Family Insurance. At a recent convention, Lane received the honor for earning the 4th spot companywide for outstanding new sales of American Family insurance products stemming from the prior 12 month period May 1, 2011 – April 30, 2012.

“This is a very impressive honor when you consider there are about 3,500 American Family agents serving millions of policyholders,” says Larry Van Dyn Hoven, Agency Sales Manager. “This is a fitting tribute to Lane’s expertise in all lines of insurance and annuities showing he has the ability to earn the trust and respect of his customers.”

“In the last 12 month we have grown our policy count by over 5% and written over 2 Million dollars in annuities,” said Lane. “Many folks have finally come to realize that they are not content with the rate of return on their savings, CDs, and/or investments. With our annuity products, we have been able to guarantee anywhere from 1.5 to 30 times their current rate of return. Our clients can now can earn more during these tough economic times and have the peace of mind of being with a financially strong company they can trust.”

“At the end of the day though, the most important part of our job is taking care of the dreams and delicate financial futures of our customers. During this campaign, we paid out approximately 2.5 million dollars in claims. When it boils down to it, this is what our business is all about, and without a doubt, the most rewarding part of my career is delivering on the many, many promises to our customers. There is no better feeling than in the time of a need, to drop everything and be there for an insured, that is what every insurance agency should be about. Our customers expect the highest possible value and my licensed staff (Carol Boyd, Doreen Djoseland, Lynette Schaefer and Angie Harder) and I do everything we can to deliver value that is second to none,” said Lane.

Berenschot has been an agent for American Family since December of 1995..
