Better service starts here.

At Autumn, we treat each customer like an honored guest, not an interruption. We strive to be the best. And the most helpful. We focus on turning every contact into a lifelong, win-win relationship — by exceeding expectations.

Family owned for three generations.

Our story goes back to 1933, when current CEO Curt Rager’s grandparents started selling insurance during the Great Depression. Thanks to hard work and determination, their little business survived, beating the odds by putting the customer first.

After graduating from Michigan State, Curt Rager joined the family business as a full partner in 1981. Under his leadership, it grew exponentially, blending four other insurance agencies into Autumn’s brand. After each acquisition, Curt’s team used the “Autumn touch” to retain existing customers without interruption or loss of protection.

From humble beginnings, Autumn continues to grow, handling insurance and benefits for thousands of private and commercial customers. Our clients range from individual homeowners to businesses with annual sales of $150 million and payrolls of up to 300.

Let us earn your loyalty.

Our team members are good listeners. Savvy problem-solvers. And obsessed with getting you the most coverage per dollar. Personal or Business. New policy or renewal. All while making you smile in the process. To stay on the cutting edge, we continually upgrade our skill sets and embrace new technologies. Our loyal customers do the rest — by telling their friends and relatives about the Autumn difference.

Value trumps price.

Saving money is important. So, we dig deep to find cost advantages between our various carriers. But we also look for little-known discounts you may be entitled to, plus ways to reduce your risk. Our goal is lowering your premium without cutting coverage. We’ll save you bucks, but we’ll never, ever put your assets at risk.

More stability. More choices.

As independent, multi-line agents, we can objectively choose the best carrier for your needs. That allows us to work exclusively for you. Which means we’re on your side when you face a loss, advocating for full, prompt payment. With almost 90 years in the industry, we know who has the fastest, most reliable claims department. And because we only work with top-ranked insurers, you enjoy security and confidence. Guaranteed.
