My goal is to ensure that clients are empowered with education about their coverages, and that we are always presenting the finest options and service. As a Broker and Underwriter, it’s important to me to put our clients’ interests first, so that they walk away with full confidence in the fact that the coverage we recommend is right for their particular set of needs.” 

Lia Burgess

 “Clients may be nervous at first; but by the end of our conversations, they feel that I’ve done my best for them. It’s important to me that they’re happy with the outcome of any situation, and that they feel like I’ve given them personalized care by finding them the right coverages at the best possible rates. Our clients are important to us; and I want them to know that we will do what it takes to make them feel comfortable with their purchase of insurance through our brokerage.”

MARTINNA BOWEN

Martinna used to specialize in Life and Health Insurance before she joined Team Wiesner to round out her expertise and become a “one stop shop” for insurance.

Today, her areas of specialization have expanded to include: Personal, Home, Auto and Motorcycle (as well as Life and Health).

Martinna’s analytical and detail-oriented mind help her catch “the little things,” and her personal mandate for client service is clear:

“After you deal with me, I want you to say, ‘she was an honest broker,’ and I want you to fully understand the coverage you have. Additionally, I want to make sure you’re aware of the coverage you haven’t considered – including the coverages that you may not know are available to you. It’s important to me that my clients know and understand all of their options so that they feel comfortable, and confident in, the fact that I took good care of their best interests no matter what happens.”

ANITA STEWART

Anita specializes in personal lines, including “toys,” such as motorcycles, and recreational vehicles: personal watercraft, kayaks, canoes, and more.

“Insurance is something you have to get, so why not make it fun? I think that in personal lines, your home is the biggest investment you’re going to make (other than your children) – so I make those conversations entertaining. I cut to the chase: no ‘big’ words, no tangents. This way, the client can stay interested enough to get the coverage they need.”

Anita’s mandate is to maintain her honesty and “tell it like it is,” which cultivates trust, comradery and understanding in a client. She’s also dedicated to getting the client what he or she needs:

“I will always get you insurance. Whether you want to pay it or not is another story. But if you need insurance, I will get you insurance.”

FRASER ROSS

Fraser specializes in Commercial Lines, which include Construction, Manufacturing, Tech., Retail, E-commerce, and basically a “little bit of everything,” which means his easy-going nature, sense of humour and great communication skills serve him very well in the field.

“I used to work in a lot of marketing and advertising, which helps me understand what companies are trying to do from their perspective on a commercial level. Because of my diverse background, I can understand a client’s business, see where risks might arise, understand what they want for the future of their company, and partner with them in their growing success.”

After 10 years in sales, and 3 years at Wiesner Insurance, Fraser is well-acquainted with customer satisfaction:

“I want my clients to enjoy peace of mind. They need to be able to focus on their daily tasks, with confidence in the fact that I will be taking care of their insurance needs in accordance with their best interests. It’s important for me to fully understand their business; this kind of knowledge helps me put together programs that have the best coverage possible.”

Fantastic listening skills allow Belinda to better understand what matters most to her clients:

“Whether it’s listening to them tell me about their dreams of starting another business venture, or their plans to expand their current business operation, learning about my clients’ wants and needs provides me with a clear objective when trying to think of creative insurance solutions to help them achieve their goals.

I hope my clients feel well-equipped with the knowledge they need, in order to make better-informed decisions as it relates to their current (and future) commercial insurance needs. I also want my clients to feel assured that these needs are being handled with the utmost care, and consideration.”
