I grew up in McKinney Texas where all my family lives. I have been working in the insurance industry for almost 24 years. I really didn’t pick this career, it picked me and I love it! I enjoy building relationships, helping with the client’s needs, and making sure they are happy with the service I provide.

Scott Schafer

Insurance Consultant

Born and raised in Plano, Texas, I have seen how much the North Texas area has grown over the past several decades. After being licensed in 2012, it has been a pleasure to help people protect their wealth and livelihoods. There is nothing more gratifying than customizing the exact coverages a customer needs for the lowest price possible and seeing it work flawlessly when claims arise. On a personal level, Faith, Family, Friends, and Fun are what motivate me on a daily basis. When not working, any opportunity to connect with the great outdoors is an extremely welcome experience.
