I have 33 years of insurance experience helping clients prepare for the unknown.
As a resident of Western Michigan I am blessed with many great friends, great clients and professional business associates. Buiten & Associates, a division of Brown & Brown of Michigan is an independent insurance agency with access to multiple insurance companies. This allows me to provide a comprehensive and a competitive market analysis.

I have had the pleasure of working with Bob for 33 years now and I think the thing I appreciate the most is the fact that he doesn't wait for concerns or issues to pop up - he anticipates my needs and gets to me with timely info and solutions well before any problem can arise. The folks at Buiten who support him are top notch. We often have to pull quick liability certificates for last minute jobs and they always respond quickly and efficiently to our requests.

"Thought I would offer you a big atta-boy!" (since I can't give you a gold medal) "Again, a big thanks in taking the time to do what's right for everyone all-the-way around!"
Bob Brock has been our insurance agent for years. Bob diligently works to get the best possible insurance with the most economical rates. In 2009 we suffered a total loss to our family business by fire. Bob worked endlessly with us to get through the traumatic experience. He was in contact with us daily, helping us work through this with the insurance company. With his patience and kindness we got through this and were able to reopen 9 months later. We will be forever thankful to him. We truly believe Bob is the best.
