In January, The Signature Page Insurance Agency of Hazen, ND completed a merger with Heritage Insurance Services. The agency will continue to be managed by Signature Page founder, Vicki Degenstein, who started the local agency in 2007. Degenstein is optimistic about the transition to Heritage Insurance Services, “Becky, the President of Heritage Insurance, understands customer focus and the importance of local business in small communities like Hazen. I am excited to see what this transition brings in terms of expanded access to markets for our clients,” says Degenstein.
Unlike captive insurance agencies, independent agencies like The Signature Page and Heritage Insurance have access to multiple insurance carriers. While The Signature Page already had an impressive list of carriers; the agency will now represent over fifty preferred carriers as Heritage Insurance. Among the many new markets available are NorthStar Mutual, Auto-Owners and Farmers Alliance.
Heritage will also bring expertise in Crop, Hail, Life and Health to the Hazen agency. “We are extremely excited about the Hazen market. We love the town, the people and everything that goes with it,” says Becky Bjerke, President of Heritage Insurance Services. “We have a tremendous amount of talent and knowledge in the industry and we are excited to have the opportunity to showcase our talents with Vicki in Hazen.”
Heritage Insurance Services is headquartered in Fargo, ND with offices in Hebron, Bismarck, Minot, Butte, Oakes, Jamestown, Valley City, Wahpeton, Hillsboro and now Hazen. There will be an open house in Hazen and all other Heritage locations on February 23rd and 24th where anyone can stop in to meet our staff, enjoy some snacks and refreshments and enter to win prizes. We hope to see you there!
