Who We Are
Elevate Insurance is a family owned, independent insurance agency specializing in commercial insurance, employee benefits and executive planning.
Unlike other insurance agencies that are just looking to make a sale, we strive to create long-term relationships with our clients and focus on listening to your needs and goals while working with you to develop the optimal solution based on your unique business and family circumstances.
Why the name Elevate Insurance?
Everyone asks us how we came up with our business name. We wanted to reflect a sense of optimism. To elevate means to advance, raise up or lift something to a higher level. That’s what we try to do for our clients- to elevate their expectations of what an insurance agency should be.
We are one of the leading commercial insurance brokers in our market area; highly rated for the exceptional service we provide the businesses and individuals who have placed their trust in us. We’re not perfect and we do make mistakes and we are often just as frustrated working with big insurance carriers as you are, but we do our best to fix problems when they occur. Ultimately if it's important to you, it’s important to us.
Elevate Insurance is under the capable leadership of Porter T. Talbot, MSFS. Porter is an adjunct instructor for BYU-Idaho online learning, and author of Unlocking Obamacare: A Business Guide to Lowering Costs, Increasing Options and Staying Within the Law.
