Feature Friday – State Farm

By March 14, 2016 September 12th, 2017 Feature Friday

Bluewater is proud to serve a range of locally-owned businesses in the Northfield community. From bakeries to insurance agencies, our clients really do it all! We asked Mike Tschida, the owner of a State Farm agency in Northfield, to tell us a bit about his business.

Before I opened my new State Farm agency, I worked in the auto industry for a Chevrolet dealership. I’d had enough of that industry and made the decision that I wanted to work for myself, in a sales environment, and be able to positively affect the lives of others around me on a daily basis; both employees and clients. A good friend opened his own State Farm agency in Atlanta, GA back in 2013 and had been pushing me to give it a shot myself. Finally, I listened, and the experience thus far couldn’t be going any better.

Our team offers insurance and financial services to our clients. We provide State Farm auto, home, life, health, banking, and retirement products. In my office we have two primary objectives when working with our customers; to educate them and to make sure their policies are suitable for their life because everyone is different and most people do not get their money’s worth when they are making their insurance premium payments.

We have had great rate decreases here in Minnesota on both auto, home, and our umbrella policies making us extremely competitive in the insurance game. We are also very competitive with our auto loans and industry leaders right now with our low mortgage rates.

I plan to serve the Northfield area for the next 40 years helping make sure that our clients are educated on what they are paying for and that they have a plan in place for when they need it most. Our mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams.

State Farm is the #1 insurance company in the country. Combining that with the growing Northfield area and younger population, my team and I felt that there was a lot of opportunity that was not being properly helped.

In today’s world, it is very easy to jump online and get insurance within minutes. However, where is the value in doing so? Some people may like the convenience of paying and dealing with a computer screen or smart phone, but where are they when you need to use the services they are providing you? I am excited to be in the city of Northfield to help provide value and a local presence/relationship with all of our current and future clients.

We are very lucky to have found the location we did right off Highway 3 across from the Chevrolet dealership, next to Papa Murphy’s and Northfield Urgent Care. When I found the office space, I was very interested in finding a local contractor to help work through the details of the new floor plan.

I feel very lucky to have got in contact with Chris Kennelly with Bluewater and Northfield Construction Company. I highly recommend both companies! As for my space being unique, we are all just very happy to come into work each day to a brand new office where we can proudly invite clients in to meet with us and share this fun and exciting new office experience.

Anyone looking for education, guidance, or just simply a quote to see what we can offer them can get in touch with our office at 507.645.6858 or via email at statefarm@miketschida.com. However, we would prefer you just come down and see us at our new office at 2014 Jefferson Road in Northfield next to the Papa Murphy’s, across from Apple Chevrolet. I have a great team with Monica Gernandt and Ben Wegner who came with me from their old State Farm office in Faribault along with myself and my brother Tad Tschida. We are ready to serve the city of Northfield! Please come see us and allow us the opportunity to earn your business and save you some $$$$$.
