Brown & Brown NW (BBNW) has a long history in Oregon going back to 1867 with JBL&K Insurance Services. Over the last 10 years we have acquired some of the most prestigious agencies in Oregon, back to when we were operating as Fullerton & Company, Nies Insurance Agency, WR Reed & Company, Cramer & Giles, Security Insurance, Sage Insurance, Stewart & Tunno, Lumbermen’s insurance & Beecher Carlson Insurance.

We are a full service operation offering Property & Casualty, Workers Compensation, Employee Health Benefits, Professional Liability’s and all other lines of coverage.
Our business model is one of “decentralization”, meaning each office/profit center works autonomously from the others.

I am a second-generation Brown & Brown customer with complete satisfaction. I also no longer live in the area but continue to utilize them for all of our insurance needs because of the excellent history. We have not been without claims and everything has been a positive experience. Our agent, Don Dire, takes care of every issue with a personal touch. I will be a customer for many years to come!
Our company has used Brown & Brown for several years. Steve and Jennie take the time to get to know us and our business to make the best possible recommendations. They come out, at a minimum, annually to review expiring policies and discuss renewals. Follow up is professional, thorough and prompt. Thank you for providing top notch, excellent customer service.
I am a long time customer of Brown and Brown and have dealt with them primarily through email. Gretta has always been efficient, kind and knowledgeable. I have never had a moment of feeling insecure or confused about my coverage. Gretta makes sure that I am kept informed and any changes are made promptly. I recommend this company.
I can’t say enough great things about Gretta Gerdau. She has been our insurance agent for many years and whenever I call or email Gretta, she responds promptly and is always willing to put in the extra effort to help us find the best solution. Two of my children are also insured with Gretta, so she pretty much is our family agent! Thank you Gretta!
