Some would say we are idealists
We truly believe our mission is to serve you, and we work hard to be fair and honest and respectful. We serve with integrity and professionalism and believe in building long-lasting relationships. Naysayers might argue insurance is all about marketing and numbers.
Strong Tower Serves
We strongly disagree. We are here to serve you with new concepts and ideas that are backed by old-fashioned human values. Our culture is all about you. This is what separates us from everyone else. Our goal is to earn the trust and confidence of those we serve. This is why we can offer great coverage at competitive prices. Give us a try. You’ll like what you get.
Our Strong Tower Insurance Group mission is to build relationships by serving others because we are called to do so. We partner with community businesses and families to protect and grow their assets by managing risk.
How We Came to Be
Minnesota to Arizona
In 1989, our Uhlhorn Family said goodbye to the frozen tundra of Windom, MN and hello to the Valley of the Sun and Gilbert, AZ. Leon and Suzie Uhlhorn brought 4 children and 10 years of experience with American Family Insurance Company to establish a new AMFAM office in the Val Vista Lakes community in growing Gilbert.
Giving and Growing in Arizona
Between 1989 and 2010, our group of insurance professionals served the needs of both clients and community by living the philosophy of giving before getting. The Uhlhorns’ growth came naturally as word of our integrity spread causing the need to add staff and office space and eventually leave the AMFAM (or Captive) insurance model due to limitations in risk management offerings and competitive pricing. Our incredible clients followed us to the much improved Independent Broker model we have today.
The Name Strong Tower
Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower.” Our faith-based organization welcomes all and serves all. We believe what you keep will perish and what you give will prosper. We give back to the community often and in many ways.
Why use an Endorsed Local Provider?
Unlike an agent who works for a captive insurance company, an Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) has more resources to help you. The more resources, the more likely are to save on your insurance. Marty Uhlhorn has earned Dave Ramsey’s endorsement and graduated from the Financial Peace University in 2010. Marty describes his experiences with Dave as being “incredible, upbeat and life-changing.”
ELPs earn Dave’s endorsement, they don’t buy it.
Being a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider is not easy; it’s hard work because ELPs are held to a higher standard of excellence.
ELPs give great customer service and are easy to understand.
ELPs have the heart of a teacher, so you can trust your ELP to provide top-notch customer service. No one likes to be talked down or made to feel as if they don’t matter. ELPs take pride in the fact that they treat each Dave fan like a friend.
The ELP program is designed to help you save money! It’s simple, if this program didn’t benefit you, we wouldn’t do it!
