About Our Company

Heather Brandt, Founder/ CEO of BFI Insurance Services, was raised in a household where her father, David Brandt is an insurance agent with Farmers Insurance. She saw the value in the insurance business as it creates an opportunity to help other businesses and families, it builds long lasting relationships with clients, and provides great future income and business. Heather followed in her Father’s footsteps and opened her own Farmers Insurance agency at 20 years old! After working for Farmers Insurance for awhile, she decided that she wanted more opportunity to grow and fully service the client by having access to ALL the insurance companies to work with, instead of limiting her to one company. Heather founded BFI Insurance Services, which stands for Brandt Financial Insurance in 2012. The company has been rapidly in growth as our clients continue to see the value of service they receive from our experienced insurance specialists!

Thank you BFI Insurance, Gladys was able to save us some money on our personal policy and she provides great customer service no matter what day it is she is there to help.  We have our policies with Safeco Insurance and we couldn't be any happier with the coverages and their service.

Client Testimonials

BFI and Heather are a class act. Heather has found the best products for me and at the best prices. I first met Heather when buying a home in 2014 and she has since handled my home and auto insurance needs. I have referred a few friends to her, and they have been very happy with the level of service, professionalism, and the value of the products. Go ahead and get a quote for your insurance needs, you will understand why I have chosen to stay with BFI rather than shopping around every renewal. 
Thanks Heather for all you do!

Heather is amazing! She found the best home and auto insurance for us and even beat out all the other companies we quoted. She even found great coverage for our vacation rental. She's always available to answer calls and is very patient with my many questions. As a realtor, I've recommended her to everyone of my clients. I'm happy to have found her!
