WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Not all insurance agents are the same! With an independent insurance agency like AZ Insurance Team, you get choices.
We represent a number of different insurance companies, and can compare coverage and prices to find the best possible value for your individual circumstances.
As independent agents, we are members of the Phoenix Metro community, and we’re committed to doing business face-to-face and being your advocate in times of need.

Mary was born in the Pacific Northwest, near the Nisqually basin, where massive evergreens grow to meet the shoreline. Her parents, who both served in the military, swept her away to Europe by the time she could toddle. Mary spent the next 5 memorable years in Germany, where her parents originally met and married. When their tour was over, her family returned to the US, and purchased a home backing up to a wildlife refuge where bald eagles would go to nest. It was a beautiful childhood. She hosted international exchange students for over a decade, serving them dinner by night and teaching them English by day. Mary moved to Arizona with her two young children in the spring of 2007. Mary met and married her husband in Europe.
Professionally, Mary had always succeeded in sales and decided to take a swing at insurance because it combined things she loves: personal shopping integrity, coupon clipping mindset, and keeping her eyes open for clients’ best interests. She enjoys donating time with volunteer organizations and raises money for children’s hospitals.
ZOEY, THE INSURANCE DOG
Zoey doesn't have an email address, she's a dog
Zoey is from Yuma Arizona and was dropped off at the local pound when she was about 10 months old. She was put on the Giant Schnauzer Rescue website, Steven saw her, and fell in love with her. Charlotte bought Zoey for Steven for Christmas, 2011 and she has been his shadow ever since then. When Zoey isn't busy selling insurance, she enjoys car rides, going to her grandma's cabin and going on walks. Zoey is a permanent fixture at AZ Insurance Team and you can find her there every day, curled up in her bed or begging for love and food. Come see her!
