Stephanie Schaffroth, Farmer’s Insurance Agent

Stephanie SchaffrothDescribe your business in terms of what you do and who you serve.

I’m an Agency Owner with Farmers Insurance.  I meet with individuals and small business owners in the community to help with their insurance needs. I’m able to provide insurance advice and guidance for all lines of insurance including auto, home, commercial, worker’s comp and life.

What do you love about what you do?

The policies I write are more than just numbers; they protect the livelihood of businesses and people that I have a relationship with.  Everyday people and businesses lose it all when they suffer the financial and legal consequences of being under-insured.  I want my clients protected if the unexpected happens.  It is the extra time and care I take with my clients that separates me from my competitors.

What is one of the best outcomes a client has experienced from the product or service you provide?

Murphy’s Law keeps me in business.  A few months ago I worked with a single mom who had minimum insurance limits on her auto policy.  After working together I increased her coverage— just a few weeks before her at-fault accident.  The adequate limits she had in place turned her situation from a financial catastrophe to just a bad day.

Can you paint a picture for us of your ideal client so we can understand who within our circles of influence might make a great referral to you?

I specialize in commercial/business insurance. I find that small business owners are so busy wearing multiple hats that insurance reviews are put on the back burner.  Due to the nature of small business owners putting everything into their business, one uncovered claim could be financially devastating to their business and their families.

I provide a concierge approach to business owners to take care of their insurance needs, which allows them to do what they do best.

What is the best way we can refer someone to you?

Any and every way possible! 😊 An email or phone call is the easiest and fastest way to connect.

Can you tell us what benefit you get personally and for your business from being a member of the Sisterhood?

I have always operated with a giving spirit and the belief in synergy. I am drawn to female entrepreneurs who make a difference by saying what they will do and then doing it…very well!  In fact, without the comradely of the women entrepreneurs in my early career, I would not be where I am today. The Sisterhood provides a platform for us to network in a unique connection format.

What is the last thing you want us to know that we haven’t already talked about?

I’m incredibly lucky to have the staff I have in place. My agency has 3 ½ people with more than 80 years of insurance experience between them. I receive compliments weekly from my clients about how their insurance experience is smooth and seamless due to the efforts and expertise of my staff.
