Brett W Charbonneau Agency Inc

I have been an agent since 2003

Let us help you build a policy.
My Background

I was inspired to start my own American Family Insurance Agency because I truly believe in the value of helping people when they need help the most. I learned the true value of helping others and great customer service from my mother, who was the regional director of the American Red Cross and my father who owned a printing business. Insurance is a perfect mix of those two huge influences in my life. With offices in Somersett in Reno my team and I are able to help many people protect their dreams!

Previous Employment

Before owning my own agency, I worked as a claims adjuster for 2 years and then as an Agent assistant for year for American Family Insurance. This prior experience has put me in a unique position to help you through your claims process because I am able to more adequately understand the claims process from all sides. This is a huge advantage you'll have with me as your agent! Call us today for a free Insurance Review!

Personal Information

When I'm not working hard to help you protect your dreams, you can find me on the golf course, or grilling in my backyard. I also love to spend quality time with my wife and our 3 pets!

Hobbies & Interests

I enjoy playing golf at the golf course and barbequing in my backyard with friends and family! Fitness, and podcasts, have been re-introduced to me during the past few years
