Producer Profile – Turner Insurance Agency

The Iowa FAIR Plan Association was created by the State of Iowa to provide basic dwelling, home and commercial property insurance to qualified applicants who are unable to find insurance in the voluntary insurance market. With the assistance of the local producer, we may be able to provide this basic need for individuals that may otherwise go uninsured. Having insurance can help by getting someone back on their feet and back to a normal life after a loss. Our producers are our first line of contact. Without their diligence in helping their community, many individuals would not have this essential component to help protect their assets.

Please meet one of our appreciated colleagues, Turner Insurance Agency, Creston, IA. The agency was established in 1986 by Curt Turner. Katie Turner, the current owner, purchased the agency from her father in 2001.
