Walking through the large glass front door at 44 East Winter Street you are struck by the architectural remnants of the old hotel and the fresh modern look that compliments the classic building.
That blending of the past with modern fare is no accident as it resembles the company that resides within the premises. Converse and Assoc., LLC affiliated with American Family Insurance has been located as the location – or the one next door – for nearly the past seven years.
Converse is our first “Warrior Wednesday” spotlight which is a weekly feature that highlights the people behind the companies in Delaware County area. Those that work so hard in the store-fronts that you walk past on your way to 1808 or The Strand.
Converse highlights her favorite part of being an agent – owner is “building relationships with our clients – celebrating milestones in their lives like marriages, new babies, cars, homes, etc — but also supporting them in times when losses occur.”
It is that commitment to building a strong relationship with every single customer that has seen her business explode in the past several years. Clients know that whether Christy, Roberto or even Casey herself answers the phone they will be taken care from start to finish.
“We are real – we handle all the quoting, binding, servicing, and phone calls here,” Converse said. “You know who you are dealing with!”
A service that is not lost on the commercial, farm, and ranch customers that she focuses her work on. Especially those in the greater Delaware area.
“I love how Delaware has such a small town feel with a community that is always there to support one another,” Converse said of her reason to open her doors in Delaware.
That was large part of what led Converse to move her insurance talents about 15 miles east from Richwood, Ohio, to open her doors in 2014. She has been an important part of the community and is active in the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce among many other organizations.
Converse, a Richwood native is a graduate of North Union and the Ohio State University, has been married to Dustin for nine years and they have a three-year-old son, Colby.
