Lakeside Insurance Brokers is an independent insurance agency in Minnesota with offices in Burnsville and Chanhassen. Since 1990, we’ve focused on providing our clients with a choice in insurance – whether that be products, coverage or price. Being independent means we don’t answer to a larger company, we work for you. We are proud to be locally owned and operated, and give back to the communities in which we do business.
What does that mean exactly? It means we don’t work for one insurance company; we have contracts with multiple insurance companies allowing us to check prices and coverages with different companies. Since rates vary widely among companies, we can likely get you a better deal, if not better coverage, than you can get for yourself by going with a captive agent or direct to a company.
We are not a 1-800 so when you call our office, you’ll talk to a real person. And being independent means we are a small business in your community that enjoys giving back to organizations that provide programs and services for those in need in our backyards. Check out our Community page for more information on the organizations we support.
We’re a one-stop shop.
We don’t just sell car insurance. We can help you with renters, condo or homeowners insurance, health insurance, business insurance and more. There is no cost to use us – get a complimentary quote to see how our companies compare to what you may have already found. Or better yet, let us do all the shopping for you from the start.
We care about you.
If you’re breathing, you’re changing. And as your life changes, whether that is buying a car, getting married, renting an apartment, or even starting a business, we want to be with you along the way. We like to get to know our clients and put a face to a name. Plus, we understand your time is valuable so we’ll come to you. Work, home, your favorite coffee shop, we’re meet you there because we care. And if you prefer to communicate via text or email, that’s cool with us too!
We are there beyond a claim.
Most of the time, you only talk to your insurance agent when you’re shopping for new coverage, rates go up or you have a claim. And while we are proud to provide service in times of need, that’s not good enough for us. We value our clients and show appreciation through special events, contests and a Referral Rewards Program.
