Testimonials from some of our Great Clients:
Employee Benefits and Workers Compensation
I have been working with Tom Bergum for over 25 years and he currently manages our employee benefit program and self-insured workers compensation program in MN. Tom provides excellent service while also managing our large benefit program with minimal increases in premium. This has allowed us to continue to provide an excellent health program for our employees at an affordable cost. His creativity in setting up the financial structure has really worked to keep our costs down. What I have always appreciated about Tom is his integrity and honesty. If he makes a promise, he delivers. I am happy to recommend Tom and his team at Solutions Insurance.

I’ve worked with Tom Bergum for over 20 years and his professionalism and integrity are unquestioned. Tom’s creative approach to employee benefits has helped us control our costs while always providing good benefits for our employees. Our property/Casualty program is very complex but Tom and his team make sure everything runs smoothly and we’re properly protected at a fair premium. Amy, Armen and Stephanie do a fantastic job of servicing our account and quickly reacting to our many needs. I highly recommend Solutions Insurance for your business insurance, employee benefits as well as personal lines which I have with Sonja Jones.

Business Insurance and Employee Benefits
Tom Bergum and I have worked together for well over 15 years. He handles our insurance at two different companies we own and does a great job. He is always looking at ways to save us money while still trying to provide strong benefit programs for our employees and affordable premiums on our property/casualty program. Tom is surrounded with excellent support people who provide top level service. I can’t recommend Tom and his team at Solutions enough.

Hello my name is Cole. I have been with Sonja Jones as my insurance agent since 2011. Not only has she contacted me with finding better rates without me asking. She has always stood up for me and advocated for me. I have strongly recommend her to several people. I would pay a higher price even though she's always been lowest priced for her high quality customer service.
I have worked closely with Solutions Insurance since 2011. During that time, I have witnessed firsthand their ability to guide their clients in finding the best possible insurance solution that is custom tailored to fit the individual business’s needs. I feel it's important to surround yourself with people who are experts in their field. I use Solutions Insurance because they are the experts in the insurance industry.

I have been running small businesses for 30 years and during that time; worked with several insurance agents. Tim Blahnik, by far, has been the hardest working agent I have worked with. He does research to find us the lowest rates partnered with the best insurance companies, Tim has made himself available to lead Safety Meetings onsite at our headquarters, led us to the best resources for our company's safety and risk avoidance needs, fought for us during a claim, and most important; he is always a phone call away.

Having reached the older age of 75 years the month of March, 2017 I can say that I have had over the years sooo many insurance companies but none compares to that of Solutions and Western National of Minneapolis. These outstanding companies provide Exceptional Services coverage on both my automobiles as well as our home. Top that with a proficient, customer oriented agent such as Sonja Jones and it is a major winning combination for my specific needs !!

Our company Environmental Troubleshooters has worked with Heidi and Sonja at Solutions Insurance for 10 years. During that time, the Solutions staff has been very knowledgeable, provides excellent customer service and they are available 24/7 to answer questions or in case of an emergency. Their staff also goes out of there way to obtain the best possible price each year for our annual renewal. When many firms have seen their premiums rise each year, our premiums have remained flat or we have only experienced nominal increases. This is why I continue to stay with Solutions.
Hi Sonja: We have been with Solutions Agencies for many years and have had the wonderful opportunity to have Sonja for our agent. She has been wonderful to work with and has always been very prompt in returning our calls and answering questions we may have on our home and auto policies. Solutions Agencies is also priced very competitively. Our son Scott has his auto policy with Sonja and will be insuring his new home when he closes in May. A great company with a great agent in Sonja Jones!!!
“I have worked with Amanda at Solutions Agency for 3+ years. She is absolutely wonderful to work with. You know when you email her she will respond very quickly with accurate and detailed answers. It has been a pleasure to work with someone so responsible and thorough!”

I trust you're well.
"I thoroughly endorse Solutions Agencies. They staff have been a godsend as I navigated the world of business insurance needs. The homeowner insurance service has provided me with quality and value priced policies."
My name is Brian Ernest and I’ve had Western National/Solutions Insurance Agency dating back a few years now with Sonja Jones as my agent. I was referred to her by my little brother when I was shopping around for car insurance and at the time Sonja was able to get me the best rate so I signed on. Since then I’ve added and removed several vehicles and 2 house insurance policies which I figured would be a daunting, stressful task but it was simple and painless.
I’ve only had to initiate a couple claims, thankfully but out of any company I’ve ever had to deal with whether it’s a bank, internet provider, etc. Sonja has been the absolute best person to work with. Not only is she understanding and thorough in her work but she is ALWAYS very speedy to respond to any questions or concerns I have. Whether it be with quotes, referrals or claims she is always quick and accurate in her help. I actually recently purchased a branch new truck and my insurance went up quite a bit but I have ZERO intentions of ever price checking for my home or auto policies and Sonja is the reason why. I’ve literally had not a single issue or complaint with her and actually have referred my Grandma and a couple other people to her.
I hope this reflects positively on Sonja as she very much deserves it with the quality and professionalism she portrays, no matter the circumstances.

Sonja Jones is a consummate professional. She's unmatched amongst peers within her industry, with much emphasis on providing detailed information on insurance products, superior customer service & support in a challenging business environment.
Sonja Jones has been our agent for six years. She is a time saver and a money saver. She knows the rules and underwriting idiosyncrasies of the companies she represents. She consistently pairs us with the companies and policies which work in our favor. She returns calls and email usually within hours, even on her time off. I unhesitatingly recommend Sonja!
Just wanted to respond to your email by saying Diana and I have been very great full for you and how quickly and professionally you respond to our insurance needs, not to mention you answer even on the weekends!
Thanks for all you do,
Steve and Diana Cooper
Just want to let all know how helpful Sonja has been to us. We now have coverage for house, 2 vehicles and anytime I have questions she has the best answers.
I've questioned her on many things and she has always found the answer and if she can lowers the insurance cost which is an added bonus. Yes sometimes it goes up but no fault of hers.
Thank you for being one of our best Agents.
Li and Mike
Sonya has been my home and auto insurance agent for 10 years now!
Absolutely love the service I've received!
Sonya has been amazing with finding me the best deals, friendly, honest and so easy to communicate with!
Last year I had a furnace soot backup. I worked with Sonja Jones. I can't express enough about the service, help and just plain being there for me. Within 24 hours, I had a place to live, with my cats, people were in here cleaning, a little later people were here to do all the necessary repairs. I would say everything was above and beyond the help I have gotten from other insurance companies. I don't know what I would have done without your company. Thank you. Thank you.
