Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives and communities we serve.

When our grandfather, Clifford Zinn, established Zinn Insurance in 1938, the business was an extension of his personal values, professionalism, citizenship, and being an advocate to those he served. He went beyond insurance to invest himself in the relationships he made and contributed to help the local community flourish.

These values were instilled in our father and in us as we make up the third generation of the “family business.” These values have been the foundation on which Zinn Insurance has grown and they guide us in the way we do business today.

We know you have a choice of who will serve your insurance needs. We hope that we can have the opportunity to show you how our services and approach to business can protect and secure the assets and quality of life you’ve worked hard for. We work hard to earn the trust and respect of each of our clients and would welcome the privilege to serve you.

Thank you,

J. Gregory Zinn, Principal

Zinn Insurance is everything you could ask for in an insurance agency. They work very hard for their clients and are always trying to improve their product. I also appreciate that they do everything they can to keep your rates as low as possible including keeping you posted if there are discounts you can get.

As a small business owner with a number of real estate investments, I wanted to make sure I had the right coverage to protect my business and personal assets. I met with Jon Zinn for a comprehensive review of all of my policies. With the Zinn team’s commitment to personal service and the agency’s long-standing reputation as a trusted, reputable insurance provider in our community, I have the confidence that I have the coverage I need.
