Isaac Block started the Block family insurance business in 1958, by selling MMFI policies out of his home for 34 years. Don & Jeannette Block took over the business from Isaac, in 1992, and later changed the business name to Block’s Agencies in 1993. Since the purchase of Gossen Insurance in 2012, Lyndon Block has taken over the management side of things and has continued the Block family name into the third generation. Block’s Agencies has grown to become a full service, customer-oriented, insurance brokerage with locations in Borden, Langham, Waldheim and more recently, Rosthern – operating under the name Rosthern Agencies.
We pride ourselves on being a family based business involved in our communities. We try and participate in as many local events as possible, whether it is a local fundraiser, sponsorship, raffle, carnival or “Diefenbaker Days” event; we want to give back and reciprocate the support that our communities have shown us.
As an independent broker, our relationship is with you, our client. We take great pride in offering comprehensive insurance coverage at competitive rates, and leaving you with a great customer experience. It is our responsibility to survey the insurance market on your behalf and determine which company best suits your needs. With those thoughts in mind, our business slogan “Serving our Clients, Serving our Communities,” is the best way to sum up where our priorities are and where our focus will continue to be.
We strive to stay on top of the ever-changing insurance world. Whether the changes are in policy wordings or in technology. We will continue to push to give you the best coverage and the best experience possible. We understand that in order to succeed in business we must be able to respond quickly and professionally to your inquiries in the way that best meets your needs; whether it be by email, phone, fax or in person.
As the insurance market consolidates, we need to be mindful of how we can continue to serve our small towns, when so many big businesses are coming in and eliminating the “little guy.” To be able to continue serving our small towns, Lyndon has brought in a partner and founded Prairie Insurance. With these additional offices in Paradise Hill, St. Walburg, and Fillmore SK we are able to scale our products and continue to produce competitive products at a competitive price. Prairie Insurance is specialized in Agriculture and the Energy/Oil sector.
Keeping our eyes downfield, we realize that the digital world is not going anywhere and we needed to adapt. Lyndon spent many years and created Saskatchewan’s first digital insurance brokerage – Mello Insurance. This insurance brokerage allows you to purchase and issue a policy online immediately, without a waiting period. You can purchase your policy in 3 minutes. This applies to Renters Insurance (Tenant Pak), Condominium Insurance (Condo Pak), Auto (Saskatchewan), Landlord Insurance (Rented Homes), Home Insurance and eventually – Life Insurance.
