Mission Statement

At Albertson Barlow Insurance Services we help people manage the risks in life in order to secure a position that allows for a fast and easy recovery from unexpected incidents. We are committed to providing our clients with exceptional coverage and superior service.

History

In 1991, Albertson Insurance Services was founded by Owner, Scott Albertson. After 16 years of selling life and health insurance, Scott identified that his clients needed the convenience of a full-service insurance agency where his clients would have access to all lines of insurance. Therefore, in 2007 Tye Barlow of Barlow Insurance Services joined forces with Scott in order to offer property and casualty insurance to Scott’s extensive client list. Together they have been providing clients with exceptional coverage in all lines of insurance.

In their mutual collaboration, Albertson and Barlow Insurance Services retain their independent office status; Scott in life and health and Tye in property and casualty.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn't purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn't have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family's financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn't have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
