I recently hit a deer with my and my agent, Chris Zimmerman, his office staff, particularly Michelle and Clint Korpalski, the Lansing claims affiliate were GREAT with helping me to quickly process the claim, connect me with a reliable repair shop (Car Center of Big Rapids, with have been excellent service so far), and making me feel settled  with the process moving forward in a timely and trustworthy fashion. I did find some snags with setting up a car rental and Clint from the Lansing office went above and beyond to make sure I had coverage when I found a suitable rental while my car was being repaired. I am relatively new with this company and have not had many claims in my life. Auto-Owners' compassionate and efficient service reminds me of how important it is to have the best insurance on my side in a time of need. Thank you so much for all of your assistance!

The Zimmerman Agency provides quality coverage tailored to fit your needs and budget.

Our work


Experienced Insurance Professionals

Chris Zimmerman opened his own agency in Mt. Pleasant in 1990. Eleven years later he joined forces to sell insurance with independent agent Jack Nartker in beautiful downtown Shepherd. Upon Jack's retirement, Chris rebranded the agency as the Chris Zimmerman Insurance Agency in 2018. 


When not selling insurance, or taking care of his clients, Chris enjoys spending time with his family or his two bird dogs, Shorty and Miss Kitty. A former English major, Chris has six Michigan-based novels to his credit. 


With a solid reputation for making client satisfaction priority one, the Zimmerman Agency will recommend a policy well-suited to your family's needs. Well-versed in Michigan's new No Fault laws, Chris and his staff can guide you through the nuances and pitfalls associated with those laws. 


Even though the Zimmerman Agency is located in mid-Michigan, many of Chris' clients live as far away as Ishpeming in the Upper Peninsula all the way to Lenawee County near the Ohio border. Our clients love our great rates and super­friendly service.

Whether you’re at the secretary of state’s office and need proof of insurance or you have a Sunday morning house fire or car crash, Chris and his team will be there for you in any insurance situation. At the end of the day, insurance is about a promise to take care of you; and that’s a promise we’ve cultivated for more than 35 years.




The times, area codes, and phone numbers may have changed, but our commitment to serving our wonderful clients with great rates and friendly service has not.  

We’re so thankful to be recognized by the folks in Isabella County as one of the top insurance professionals for 2022. Quite an honor given the number of other agents in our area!
