The BearStar Difference

At BearStar Insurance, we believe that all insurance is personal - the policies that business owners put into place can have a deep impact on them, their employees, and even their customers.

That’s why BearStar Insurance is a people-focused business. We still prefer a phone call over an online form. We take the time to talk to each and every one of our clients, learning about their unique business needs, and partnering with them to develop plans that work for them. And if our clients ever need to file a claim, we’ll be right there with them, shoulder-to-shoulder to guide them through the process.
