Real Testimonials From Our Happy Customers

Magnuson & Associates brings together your insurance needs under one roof. They provided me with renters and auto insurance and took the time to review my life insurance to make sure it was enough.

All the members on the team are very knowledgeable, but on the rare case they admit they "don't know" they are always willing to research and find the answers to find solutions.

Want a local insurance agency that keeps you in mind? Look no further.
