Company History


Carl Lindfors began selling insurance out of his home in rural Hill River Township, just north of Fosston, MN back in 1937.



A strong work ethic while holding onto small town values, his business was nurtured by his wife Charlotte who took over the business in 1956 and was later joined by their son Vern in 1963.



Various opportunities to acquire agencies, steady sales growth, and quality service provided with honesty and integrity have allowed the business to continue to grow from its three family member beginnings to six locations in Polk, Clearwater, Mahnomen and Norman counties.
