Independent insurance company opens in Wykoff

Steven Rehm grew up on a farm outside of Chatfield. He moved out of the area for some time, but his love for the country and this area drew him back. He and his wife, Amy, especially like being able to raise their three children, whom they homeschool, out in the country.

Rehm was first licensed as an insurance agent in 2008, spending the last five years with Farm Bureau. Prior to that, he had been in the real estate business. On July 1s, 2016, he made the move to go independent and in early July, he opened up his new office in Wykoff.

Rehm found an office space to rent from Phil Eickhoff and opened Homestead Insurance and Financial Services. He lives just a couple of miles outside of Wykoff so his office is close to home and where he attends church. He’s able to go home for lunch most days and see his family.

Rehm partners with Atlas Insurance Brokers to provide the platform for his independent business. He enjoys the freedom to offer his clients options with different insurance companies, which gives them better value.

The flexibility of working for himself also appeals to Rehm. Although he does keep basic regular office hours of 8:30-5, he’s able to work the hours he wants and can also work on evenings and some weekends if that’s what fits best with his client’s schedule. Thanks to technology, he can work from home as well. Rehm is often in and out of the office as he travels primarily, but not exclusively, around Fillmore and Olmsted Counties to meet with clients. Because of the line of work he’s in, he’s not limited by his office’s location. “I like that I’m not stuck behind a desk,” Rehm said with a smile. “I like to be out on the farms and with people.”

Rehm stays busy with his new business getting quotes and meeting people, something that’s not new to him since he’s been in the insurance business for a while. He offers his clients service, value, and experience, and his passion is helping them find the best coverage for what they need.

Many of his clientele are from the farming community. “I grew up on a farm outside of Chatfield so I have some knowledge of how farms work,” Rehm said. He enjoys connecting with the rural community. Rehm can provide coverage for anything from a single car to an entire farm. His mission statement is, “Helping to protect what’s important and provide for who’s important,” and it’s clear that he .....
