Sorensen Insurance Starting in 1984, CEO and founder Howard Sorensen formed an insurance agency with one idea in mind. This idea is so popular that over the years it has proven to be the key to their success and the staple signature to a healthy thriving business. What might this idea be you ask?..... Innovation, knowledge and choice mixed with good old fashioned customer service. People are turning back and the dial of time and wanting personal contact again. They want someone that can be trusted. Someone who knows their situations and can advise based off of a mutual respect. Give Sorensen Insurance a call to experience the age of new necnology, innovation and options. All the while enjoying the benefit of that customer service once so prevalent.
