My Philosophy

I decided to become an insurance agent in 2001.  My main reason for choosing this career was simple: I wanted to help people.  Spring forward 21 years and this is still my focus as an agent…helping people.  It could be helping someone file a claim after a storm, helping someone protect their first car, their first home or just helping someone to find peace of mind!  I love to help.  My philosophy regarding insurance is simple, do right by your customers and they will do right by you!

What Clients are Saying

“ Exceptionally professional and personable”

“My agent Chris Baur was exceptionally professional and personable. He was very thorough, and paid a lot of attention to detail in putting together a package including homeowners, umbrella, auto, excess flood, and personal property insurances for us. Chris answered all of my questions patiently. His phone and email responses were always prompt. It was enjoyable to work with him, and I highly recommend the Gerety Insurance agency.”

— Diane Metzler

“Saved us hundreds of dollars”

“After our homeowners insurance premium went up for the third year in a row, I decided to try to shop around to get a better rate – not realizing how difficult some companies make it to get simple answers. I eventually came across a local insurance broker in my Google searches and decided to give them a try. Best decision I’ve made in a while. Our agent Chris Baur was extremely friendly and easy to get a hold of. Not only did he find a company that saved us hundreds of dollars with better coverage, we ended up bundling our auto insurance as well and am saving over $1000 a year. I cannot speak highly enough of Chris and Gerety Insurance and I’ve already been spreading the word to anyone in my circle that wants to save money.
If you’re looking for a sign as to whether or not they are right for you – this is it.”“
