About Us About us

Our mission is to educate and empower our clients to make the right decisions for their life and health insurance needs.

Valley Insurance Professionals is an independent insurance agency offering Life, Health, Home, and Auto Insurance solutions. While we are based in Salem, Oregon, we have the privilege of serving clients throughout the Willamette Valley including Portland, Eugene, Albany, Corvallis, Dallas, Independence, McMinnville, Mill City, Monmouth, Silverton, Stayton, Sublimity, Keizer, Wilsonville, and Woodburn. Our agents are passionate about the people we serve and the work that we do.

While insurance can sometimes be reduced to a transaction based process, we believe in building long term relationships with our clients. We do this by building trust, providing insight, and enabling our clients to make decisions for themselves based on all relevant information. As an independent agency we are not beholden to any carrier. This means that we do not have to take a "one size fits all" approach - we can shop through dozens of options to provide suitable solutions to our clients based on their needs and budget. Because we do not represent only one carrier, we can truly provide our clients with objective advice.

Being independent, however, does not mean that we are on our own. Our agency is contracted with over 70 carriers, and each carrier has strong standards for the agents who represent their company. We must meet ongoing training requirements, certification, licensing, compliance, and continuing education - all this in order to maintain our relationship with these carriers and to continue to serve our clients. We also have close working relationships with carrier representatives, underwriters, and general agencies across the country. So you can feel confident that our insurance recommendations will meet the ethical and professional standards of our industry.
