Chrismer Agency, Inc. Providing Homeowners Insurance, Farm Insurance, Car Insurance, Commercial Insurance, and Life Insurance, and more in Eaton, OH, and Surrounding Areas

A Personal Message from the Owner

It doesn’t seem that long ago when I was using rate books to provide insurance quotes to customers. We hauled those bulky books to our customer’s homes long before laptops, cell phones, personal computers, and the internet. Stamps instead of email, fax machines instead of scanners: things were quite different then. Technology has made it possible for us to accomplish three times the work in a fraction of the time. The Chrismer Agency has always embraced the technologies that make this possible. However; one thing we haven’t done is replace personal service with technology. When you have a question, we’re here to provide the right answer. Some businesses love technology and use it to gain customers. At the Chrismer Agency, we love people and use technology to serve them. That’s the way it’s been since 1935, and that’s the way it’ll always be. Thanks for visiting our website. We look forward to meeting you in person!

Experience Makes the Difference

Franklin D. Roosevelt was president, the Volkswagen Beetle was launched in Germany and Babe Ruth hit the 714th and final home run of his career. The year was 1935, which is also the year Chrismer Agency began providing real-world risk management solutions to customers throughout Eaton, Ohio.

With over 80 years of serving customers, the Chrismer Agency has an advantage that only comes with experience. As consumer risk management needs have evolved, the Chrismer Agency has evolved as well. By working closely with our network of insurance carriers, we continue to provide coverage that reflects the lives of our clients. Whether it’s farm insurance, business coverage that includes cyber protection, or any and every type of coverage in between, the professionals at the Chrismer Agency have been meeting all your insurance needs since 1935.

Why Independence is Important to You

When it comes to insurance agencies, there are two types: captive and independent.
A captive agency represents one insurance company. This presents a problem when the carrier raises its rates. Your only option at that point is to shop other insurance companies, and that takes time and effort. If you’re in search of a particular type of insurance for a specific risk, that could be a problem if you only have access to one insurance company. The simple fact is that a captive agency cannot provide products outside of those offered by the single insurance carrier they represent.

An Independent Agency represents multiple insurance companies. That allows the independent agent to ‘shop’ companies for the best rates on the most comprehensive coverage. An independent agency doesn’t work for an insurance company: they work for you. Should rates increase, your independent agent shops among their network of carriers to find the best possible rate for you. If you need a particular type of coverage, the chances of getting exactly what you need are far greater with an independent agency.  Chrismer Agency is proud to be an Independent Insurance Agency.
