We are more than just insurance nerds

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!

Steven Martz

Steven is also 5th generation from Arizona and graduated from Mountain Pointe in Ahwatukee and ASU with a bachelors in Communication.  He is also an owner at AZ Insurance Team and has been in insurance for about 3 years.  When Steven is not being an awesome insurance agent he is riding his bike all over Tempe and hiking.  He recently hiked Mt Humphreys in Flagstaff and reached 10,000 feet.  He too is an animal lover and will talk your ear off about Zoey, the insurance dog.
