Our Sarasota office joined the Shepherd Insurance team in 2016, becoming our first location in Florida. Formerly serving as Al Purmort Insurance, the team has been serving Sarasota and the surrounding communities for over 35 years as one of the largest and most respected independent insurance agencies in all of Florida.
We are proud to be partnered with the strongest and most stable carriers in the industry, who consistently deliver unparalleled support to both our agency and, most importantly, our clients.
Our knowledgeable and highly-trained group of insurance professionals are skilled at understanding our client’s needs and are committed to developing and maintaining long-term relationships. This expertise, combined with our strong regional and national presence, has been instrumental in our consistent growth year after year.
We take pride in always being there for our clients. We are focused on connecting clients to their personal and professional goals, and we see every relationship as an opportunity to personally provide value, understanding, and customized solutions that exceed expectations.
We would appreciate the opportunity to assist you and look forward to working with you!
"I have had an excellent experience EVERY time that I have to contact them. I’ve been a customer for a little over a year. From initially setting up my homeowners policy, to questions about adding on pet policies, to assisting in payment methods, they have always been incredibly positive, helpful, courteous and FAST!!! Any time I’ve needed anything done, it was done immediately AND I would receive follow up calls or emails to let me know everything was taken care of. I’ve never had such an experience with an insurance company, but Al Purmort’s staff is absolutely wonderful. Thank you!"
