The Hoffman family has been in the insurance industry in Brevard County since Bill Hoffman Sr. began his career as an Allstate Agent in 1964. In the mid 1980’s he was joined in the industry by his three sons, Bill Hoffman, Jr., Bob Hoffman and Tim Hoffman.
After Hurricane Andrew in 1992 the insurance industry changed dramatically and the Hoffman’s felt they were not able to best serve their clients needs as captive Allstate Agents. In 1999 the decision was made to open an Independent Agency. In 1999, “A Professional Insurance Agency, Inc.” was opened and in 2007 “Hoffman and Associates Insurance, LLC” was opened.
We pride ourselves in adjusting with the times to provide the best and most competitive insurance available in today’s market.
Denise Ward, Licensed Agent - Personal Lines
I have over 30 years of experience, in both Louisiana and Florida, and have worked in all areas of insurance - claims, customer service, office management and sales. My career began as a customer service representative for State Farm and continued as a claim service assistant. When my husband and I relocated to Florida in 2005, I made a career change into sales. I was with A Professional Insurance Agency of Brevard (purchased by and most recently known as Regions Insurance) until 2017 when I joined Hoffman & Associates Insurance Company.
Working for an independent agency is a great fit. Hoffman & Associates represents multiple highly rated companies which means I can offer options to my customers. I will work with you to assess and understand your insurance needs and provide exceptional customer service.
Jill Hamilton, Licensed Agent - Personal Lines
In 2005, after moving to Florida to be closer to family, I began a career in the insurance industry at Hoffman & Associates Insurance Company. I started in bookkeeping, transitioned to customer service and quickly became a licensed 2-20 agent focusing on personal insurance. My professional background is as varied as the amazing places I have lived, which includes a Department of Defense employee in Germany, managing coffee shops in Maui and teaching English in Hong Kong.
My goal is to work with you to identify your insurance needs in order to ensure complete coverage for your home and family. My priorities align with Hoffman & Associates' -- personal attention to the individual, their family and developing a long-lasting working relationship.
Danielle Clements, Licensed Agent - Personal Lines
I am a Florida native and have lived in Melbourne my entire life. I started in the insurance industry in 2011 at an Allstate agency. In 2015, I started working at Brown & Brown and became their Personal Lines Team Leader for 4 years. After years of working for corporate agencies, I knew something was missing. It was then I started at Hoffman & Associates. They care tremendously about their clients and I truly believe that comes from being a family owned and operated business.
Insurance in Florida is constantly changing and is very different than most states, so I find it very rewarding to educate my customers on such an important topic. Working at an independent agency allows us to offer competitive policies and rates. My goal is to build lasting relationships with our customers and provide excellent service as I build my career and future with Hoffman & Associates.
Kate Eftink, Licensed Agent - Personal Lines
I have worked in insurance for 19 years. I began my career with Allstate in 2000 in Saint Joseph, Michigan. I worked for Allstate for 18 years starting as office support and then quickly obtaining my insurance licenses in Life, Health, Property and Auto. I moved to Florida in 2018 and became a customer of Hoffman & Associates Insurance Company. Shortly after, I joined the team at Hoffman and now enjoy working with the knowledgeable and caring people in the office. This agency has a customer-first approach to finding the best fit for each person that comes to obtain a policy. I find that refreshing.
My goal at Hoffman & Associates is to do an excellent job for you when you come in our doors and to help you understand your coverage. I hope to make you feel welcome and comfortable knowing knowledgeable people are taking care of your insurance needs.
