With a history that goes back to the late 1800s and a mission to provide quality insurance services with integrity, Bartz/Rumery Agency was voted Best Insurance Agency for the fourth year in a row.
Located at 110 Locust St. in downtown Allegan, the agency is owned by Jan Morgan and Phil Siegler, both of whom have been in the business more than 40 years. They and their employees provide home, auto, business and life and insurance.
The agency also works closely with Jeff and Anna Oakes of Michigan Elder Planning to connect customers for those types of needs.
Bartz/Rumery Agency’s name relates to a pair of agencies which merged in 1989.
Janet Siegler (Phil’s wife) has worked at the business for 30 years.
They all aim to provide proper coverage and really try to educate customers on what insurance they need, rather than focusing only on price.
Phil Siegler said, “We try to help them understand what they really need.”
Favorite Administrative Assistant
Laura L. Bartz began at the agency at the beginning of the year and was named Favorite Administrative Assistant in the Best of the Best.
A Davenport University graduate, she began her insurance career in 2003 and has worked in various agencies as a P&C producer, administrative manager and personal lines account manager.
Phil Siegler said, “She brings a vast knowledge of personal lines insurance to our office.”
In 2015 Laura Bartz earned her Certified Insurance Service Representative and Certified Professional Insurance Agent designations in 2017.
