Member Spotlight
Patricia Reimann
What brought you to start your business or get into your industry? I opened up my insurance brokerage, Goosehead Insurance – The Rocky Mountain Agency in April of 2020. I have always loved helping people, and insurance is 100% all about that. My life and work experiences are what lead me to opening up my insurance brokerage. First off, my dad was a personal injury attorney for 45 years, and he taught me a lot about insurance. He helped me understand how often people are underinsured and how having the right policy and coverages in place, with a good insurance carrier, could have saved a lot of people from devastating hardships. Then, while I was working in Title insurance, I started partnering with a few insurance brokers by sending them referrals for clients needing new home insurance. I realized what a need there is for a younger generation of property and casualty insurance brokers. Once I found a few to whom I liked referring clients, I realized it is so hard to find an insurance broker that can truly shop the best policies efficiently and also service their clients as their book of business grows. When a franchise opportunity with Goosehead Insurance presented itself, that is when I decided to open my own brokerage. I have always had an entrepreneur mindset and wanted to get into insurance because number one, I get to help people every day, it is a great way to build wealth over time, build amazing relationships with clients, and I protect their largest assets. The Goosehead Insurance model truly allows me to service my clients by finding comprehensive coverage at the most competitive price and continue to do so as I service their future insurance needs.
What do you love most about what you do? I truly believe in educating everyone with whom I work on their insurance. So many people have no idea what their coverages mean and why they need to have them. I review every policy I issue with my clients, so when something does happen, they have peace of mind knowing that they are insured properly. I love when clients tell me they have never had an agent explain their insurance the way I have, and they are so happy they have someone whom they can trust to protect them. When is comes to claims, no one likes dealing with the insurance carrier. However, when you have proper coverage and an agent who has educated you on how your insurance works, claims are no longer that scary. I love making insurance understandable and claims less scary for my clients. 

How can the Chamber help you? I opened my insurance brokerage right before COVID hit, and that made it really hard to get my name out there and grow my business during the first year. I am still in the growing phase, so, if you know anyone who currently doesn’t have a good relationship with their insurance company or needs to shop their insurance because they are coming up on their renewal, I would love a referral. I can do all personal lines such as home, auto, umbrella, boat, motorcycle, classic cars, etc. I can also do small business, general liability, and builders risk. Referrals are what keep my business going. I would be forever grateful for the support of fellow chamber members to help me grow my business. You can check out my landing page to see current reviews and start a personal lines quote yourself if you are interested in shopping your insurance.
