Insurance Agent in Forest Lake

Shannon Strobel: Passionate About Insurance. Passionate About People.

You won’t find many people who say that insurance is their passion!  But after more than ten years in the industry, I can honestly tell you that helping people understand their insurance and protect their hard-earned assets gives me great personal reward.  Every day is an opportunity to help somebody and become a trusted guide as they make important life decisions.

You might say that insurance is in my blood.  My late father was an agency owner and salesperson beloved by his clients.  My Dad wanted me to follow in his footsteps but selling insurance sounded like an awful job to me.  However, when he passed unexpectedly in 2006, I stepped in to help keep his agency afloat.  I quickly realized this career wasn’t about “selling” insurance; it was about building relationships with good people and helping them make informed decisions concerning their insurance.  Within months, I ditched my real estate career and obtained my insurance license in both the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin and haven’t looked back since! 

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband who I’m proud to say is my soulmate and best friend.  We are proud parents of two grown sons and a wonderful daughter-in-law.  Our adorable granddaughter is the joy of my life and I relish the chance to spoil her whenever possible!  Outside of insurance, I enjoy kickboxing, family time at our cabin, boating and fishing.

I am thrilled to be your local, trusted insurance agent choice for all types of insurance needs.  Becoming an independent agent has been one of the best decisions of my life.  The services I provide are often unmatched by other types of agencies because my position allows me to be an advocate for you and only you—without loyalty to specific brands, policy types or providers.

More Choices—I can quote your insurance with over a dozen insurance companies.

Better Value—You’re likely to save money working with me over a big company because my focus is on helping you find the best deal—not selling a specific brand.
